FontFlex Object-Based Simplicity

FontFlex technology integrates the basic objects of font management—fonts, sets, users, groups, font licenses and directories—into a firm foundation for enterprise font management. You can then invite users, and import and assign fonts. FontAgent Server does the rest, ensuring that everyone gets the fonts and sets they’re supposed to have, and that you stay in compliance with your font licenses.

All-New, Modern Interface

The FontAgent client lets users preview fonts in their choice of text and colors using Table, List, Player, Compare and Glyph views. The viewers present font slide shows, waterfalls, paragraphs, comparisons, and glyph sets. The connected client also supports font auto-activation for Adobe Creative Cloud, QuarkXPress and scores of other desktop applications.

FontDNA: Unrivaled Font Integrity and Metadata Insight

FontAgent servers and clients include FontDNA, Insider’s new font-integrity engine that uses 28 properties to fingerprint fonts, and eliminate corrupt and duplicate ones—so your documents render and print precisely, and so you enjoy top performance. FontDNA also exposes all available font metadata including font names, formats, styles, metrics, filenames, locations, activation, ratings, comments—and makes all of it easy to view and search.

Admin-Anywhere Simplicity

Admins use the new browser-based Server Manager to manage fonts, sets, users, groups, licenses, and distribution permissions with point-and-click simplicity. Using those FontFlex objects, the server syncs each user’s fonts and sets the next time they connect to the server.

Track Real-Time Usage and License

To ensure license compliance and control costs, server admins can view real-time details about fonts, their associated licenses and who is using them. They can track license agreements, purchase histories and seat counts, receive alerts when they over-assign fonts and fall out of compliance.

Always Available, Always Efficient

Users are productive at all times, whether they are connected or not, and even if the server is offline. Advanced I/O multi-threading minimizes network traffic and maximizes performance. Fast, incremental updates use minimal bandwidth and support slow connections with remote users.

Directory Integration

New smart support for Active, Open and LDAP directory services lets you integrate with enterprise directories in minutes and control who can upload and distribute fonts, create users and groups, manage licenses and view font-usage data.

Performance, Scale and Reliability

Built on the strength, flexibility and stability of J2EE, FontAgent Server runs on Mac, Windows and Linux platforms, FontAgent Server brings font control and consistency to user communities of any size.
