Pointera's primary product, the Pointera Sharing Engine, allows users to reliably find, download, and share any file format over a heterogeneous network through the Web, using a highly customizable, secure browser technology that is linearly and inexpensively scalable to handle extremely large datasets. As part of this technology, Pointera Sharing Engine can also be described as a super search engine, which allows users to do a meta-search which automatically checks other search engines as well. Pointera says its Sharing Engine includes the following options: create cluster groups for sharing files; syndicated, customized content feeds; online communities; e-commerce transactions related to customized content downloads and general search preferences.
