February 29, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
San Mateo, Calif. - February 29, 2008 - PBwiki Inc., the world's largest provider of hosted wikis for businesses and education, responded to the recent launch of Google Sites by today announcing that thousands of paying customers, over 400,000 wikis, and millions of users have made PBwiki their choice for online collaboration.

Since 2005, PBwiki has pioneered the use of wikis as a collaboration tool, rather than as an online encyclopedia a la Wikipedia. By offering free, password-protected, on-demand wikis that users could create in less than a minute, PBwiki put online collaboration within anyone's reach.

"Our PBwiki is a great facilitator for business," said Jack Anderson, Program Manager for Innovation at Intel Corporation. "People can come together and get the maximum you can out of a group. In a word, 'Wow.'"

Since then, millions of people have used PBwiki to manage projects, author intranets and extranets, and manage classrooms. And unlike bare-bones free-only services such as Google Sites, thousands of paying customers have signed up to use the rich functionality of PBwiki's premium services, which include a fully customizable look and feel, single sign-on via authentication systems such as Microsoft's Active Directory, and in-depth security that has been vetted by the world's leading companies.

"PBwiki lets us outsource the hassle and worry of data protection," said Steven Shead, Director of Information Technology for CafePress.com. "They protect our data just as well as we can."
