She says that more than 50 thousand companies, from small and medium-sized businesses to Fortune Global 500 firms, use the FileMaker Platform to create custom apps to solve their unique challenges and drive growth. While custom apps built on the FileMaker Platform can be deployed on any device, the new release aims to make development and integration more seamless and powerful than ever before, she adds.

New features include: a new user interface for importing data; file-based script steps; new managed security access; a Manage Security dialog box; startup restoration (FileMaker files are now automatically recoverable after a hardware or software crash), and platform parity. The FileMaker Cloud for AWS 1.18 code base supports all of the new features in the FileMaker 18 Platform.

FileMaker 18 is immediately available at https://www.filemaker.com/r/store. Pricing begins at $15 per user per month.
