GroupLogic’s mobilEcho 3.5 Debuts with Significant Usability Upgrades
Arlington, Virginia – GroupLogic, the industry’s leading provider of software products that unlock the power of new enterprise platforms, has released version 3.5 of its Mobile File Management (MFM) software, mobilEcho. The new version makes it easier for both end users and enterprise IT to simply access and manage secure mobile file access on a variety of mobile devices, such as iPad and iPhone, with key upgrades like two-way sync and even more security controls.
“Today’s employees and executives need access to corporate files on mobile devices like iPad and iPhone,” said Brad Hillebrand, Director of Enterprise Technology for Rustoleum and also a GroupLogic mobilEcho customer. “IT’s challenge is to provide that access in a simple, secure and easy-to-manage way that ensures corporate governance and compliance requirements are met. mobilEcho has enabled our team to be productive and get remote access to the latest information with two-way sync functionality, while maintaining our security standards with little time required.”
Enterprises are becoming increasingly mobile, and that trend is forecasted to continue to grow sharply upwards as more tablets and smartphones hit the market and are brought into business environments by users and IT alike. According to a recent report by leading analyst firm Gartner, by 2013, 80 percent of businesses will support a workforce using tablets, and providing employees with mobile access to the basic enterprise functions will be of utmost importance to IT. “In cases where employees are bringing their own devices for convenience, enterprises will have to offer appliance-level support with a limited level of network connectivity (which will likely include access to enterprise mail and calendaring) and help desk support for connectivity issues.”
mobilEcho 3.5 fills this need by making corporate file access secure and seamless with its two-way syncing feature, which helps to ensure users have access to the most up-to-date files, presentations, data sheets, and product materials at all times. It also supports the QuickOffice Save Back feature, which provides seamless access and editing. In addition, IT staff has more options to ensure corporate files are protected and to execute control by creating and managing black and white list approvals.
A complete index of mobilEcho 3.5 features includes:
* Two-way syncing of files
* HTTPS Reverse Proxy password and certificate authentication
* Streamlined device enrollment process
* Integration with Quickoffice’s “save back” feature
* White or black listing of third party apps allowed to “open in.”
“While the Bring Your Own Device trend has helped open the doors for people who want to use iPad and iPhone at work, one of the real benefits to using these devices at the enterprise-level is that they allow employees to securely access corporate files on numerous devices, regardless of location,” said Anders Lofgren, VP of Marketing and Product Management at GroupLogic. “Adding mobilEcho into the mix gives IT and security managers the confidence they need to provide employees with a highly efficient, more satisfying work experience, all without opening up the enterprise to corporate security breaches.”
mobilEcho 3.5 is available today and can be purchased via the GroupLogic web store. Interested IT organizations can also take advantage of GroupLogic’s free trial of mobilEcho by GroupLogic website. GroupLogic offers two pricing options for enterprises, including subscription and perpetual licensing.
