AMHERST, N.Y., Oct. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ATTO Technology, Inc., today affirmed its commitment to Apple® technology innovations by announcing driver support for El Capitan, the latest update to Mac OS X that brings enhanced usability, performance and security. Today's announcement makes ATTO the only high-performance connectivity provider with a full range of storage and network connectivity solutions to support Apple's new operating system.

With over 25 years of experience powering high-performance workflows, ATTO's network and storage connectivity products address all aspects of media production and support each step in the process from content creation to delivery.

ATTO continues to innovate and provide solutions to power these and other high-performance environments, including the most demanding applications used for government and education, scientific research and video surveillance.
