Businesses seek security solutions after mobile hacks

Launch of mobile-first solution by Accellion enables users to work securely wherever.

By Kate Heslop

Accellion, a provider of secure enterprise solutions that improve mobile productivity, has launched kiteworks, a mobile-first solution with a new user-experience and three-tier architecture designed to enable people to work securely wherever.

This week has seen the revelations of mobile hacks by the NSA and the lack of data privacy with popular mobile apps such as Angry Birds. After Data Protection Day, people have begun to question how safe it is to access files and work using their phone. A new service, kiteworks, has been designed with this in mind.

Its new mobile design offers integrated productivity tools and universal access to enterprise content stores, making it possible for organisations to realise the productivity gains from a mobile workforce without introducing data security risks.

kiteworks was designed for mobile devices first, which means that the user experience is seamless across all devices, from mobile to desktop. The new features include the kiteworks Move Tray, which aims to streamline the way users share files via mobile devices.

With kiteworks, mobile users have access to enterprise content stores including secure, native integration with two new ECMs, Documentum and SharePoint Online, as well as file shared previously supported including Microsoft SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013, and Windows File Shares.

kiteworks has a three-tier architecture for private cloud file sharing and collaboration with separate web, application and data layers for defence in depth, scalability and flexibility.

Yorgen Edholm, CEO, Accellion commented on the new solution: "Our new mobile-first design and three-tier architecture create a secure solution that is easy to use, and has the extreme scalability that enterprises and government agencies around the world need to securely enable an increasingly mobile workforce. Secure business solutions will only be used if they help not hinder employees getting their work done, and kiteworks is the embodiment of that principle."
