Foxit Announces Support of Microsoft Surface Tablets

Foxit Will Optimize PDF Solutions for Upcoming Microsoft Surface Tablets

FREMONT, Calif. - June 20, 2012 - Foxit® Corporation, an Amazon invested leading software provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced that the company will optimize its PDF product lines for the upcoming release of Microsoft® Surface tablets. Foxit, a major vendor in the PDF industry, has supported major Windows® software platforms in the past and will continue to support Microsoft on this new integrated hardware and software platform.

Foxit believes the two new tablets will be strong platforms for both enterprise and consumer customers worldwide. Foxit’s security, small footprint, high performance, and excellent value provide a winning combination with Microsoft Surface tablets to provide highly productive and cost effective PDF workflows to consume and create information on mobile devices.

Foxit will optimize its products for both the Windows RT and Windows 8 Pro operating systems that will ship with Surface tablets. Foxit provides PDF solutions to both end users and application developers through the following products:

  • Foxit Reader - The award-winning Foxit Reader is a small, fast, and feature rich PDF viewer which allows users to open, view, and print any PDF file.

  • Foxit PhantomPDF - PhantomPDF helps users create standards-compliant PDF files from hundreds of file types and from scanned documents. Once created, PhantomPDF allows users to search, annotate, edit, digitally sign, and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) PDF documents. Once complete, comprehensive security features safeguard documents through encryption and integration with Microsoft Active Directory® Rights Management Services. Conversion from PDF to Microsoft® Office® and other file formats allows users to easily share PDF content with other applications.

  • Foxit Embedded PDF SDK - The industry leading Embedded PDF SDK is targeted to developers, device manufacturers, and telecom carriers who support applications that leverage powerful, standard-compliant PDF technology to securely display, search, and annotate PDF documents and to fill PDF forms.  Optimized for mobile device, desktop, and server deployments, this SDK provides scalable, robust, and high performance PDF technology.
