Workshare introduces Professional 8

Software to 'collaborate and accurately compare documents.'

By Ben Sullivan

Workshare today announced the arrival of Professional 8, a ‘new, simple, and controlled’ way for users to compare and share files securely.

Workshare claim that the business-ready application helps IT to reduce the number of unauthorised, consumer-grade systems being used in the workplace, while also addressing users’ needs for simplicity.

Professional 8 is available as a free upgrade for current customers and is also available as a trial for 30 days.

"Today more than 1.8 million users and 16,000 businesses, including Accenture, Bird & Bird, and JP Morgan Chase, collaborate and accurately compare documents using Workshare," said the company.

"For the first time, customers can benefit from enhanced levels of control with Professional 8’s Interactive Protect feature, which automatically scans for and removes sensitive hidden data within documents. The simple feature allows users to continue working as they want to, with no interruptions from pop-ups or Outlook add-in issues."

Jim Cook, Director, Advanced Technology at International law firm, Kutak Rock commented, "The Interactive Protect feature is a great enhancement to the product and will really benefit users, especially those in highly regulated sectors who need to have complete control over files being shared and accessed. As a customer, we’re pleased to see the continual feature and functional advancements Workshare is bringing to the market, and we are looking forward to seeing the product available to our users."
