BYOD Enterprise File Access
THE USE OF PERSONAL MOBILE DEVICES FOR WORK IS BEING DRIVEN BY GROWING SMARTPHONE AND TABLET ADOPTION AND FORECASTED TO GROW 400% OVER THE NEXT FOUR YEARS
Storgrid makes supporting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives easier by solving three critical problems: 1) information security, 2) mobile access, and 3) cross-platform interoperability. Support for Windows, Mac OS X, Android, and iOS—plus the WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) protocol—enables users to view, edit, and save files across platforms using the applications of choice.
Simplify Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Storgrid understands a user’s growing expectations for enterprise BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) support. Technical savvy users have led to the “commercialization of IT” prompting them to “Bring their own Devices” (BYOD) including personal notebooks, tablets, and smartphones. The alternative of using cloud-based personal “dropbox” services brings a level of risk with potential compromising of privacy protection and long term data retention protection concerns that most customers cannot tolerate. With Storgrid, you can now deliver an enterprise-grade solution that meets your IT standards and compliance policies.
Secure and Protect Proprietary Files. Storgrid addresses an organization’s non-negotiable demand for file security and protection while satisfying user needs for file sync and sharing. The best solutions are often the simplest. Users routinely reject complexity, but want to easily access, use, modify, and share their files anytime, with anyone, from anywhere. Storgrid grants users the same ease of use as consumer file sharing and sync solutions, but without risking data leakage or loss during the life of the data.
Avoid BYOD Interoperability Issues. Traditional file servers work well with desktops and notebooks, but behave poorly with tablets and smartphones due to their use of dated file sharing protocols such as CIFS or NFS. In addition, file server access that relies on virtual private networks (VPNs) is often too clumsy or inconvenient for BYOD access by users. With Storgrid, users can easily access their files while Storgrid automatically handles security and interoperability via open internet standard such as SSL/TLS and WebDAV.
