Empowers IT to Control the Level of Security Needed and Promote Productivity From Personal Devices
Arlington, VA, November 12, 2013 — /BackupReview.info/ – Acronis® today released activEcho® 3.0 andmobilEcho® 5.0, providing enterprise-level management combined with consumer-grade simplicity for secure file access, synchronization and sharing on mobile devices. These two products now include the Acronis Policy Engine, which provides granular management capabilities to create security policies and ensures control and compliance on all devices.
Employees are currently bringing their own devices to work and many others use corporate devices off-premises. Gartner® predicts this trend to keep increasing with 38 percent of companies expected to stop providing devices to workers by 2016 and half by 2017. As enterprise IT continues to lose control over which devices are accessing information and where, they need to remain assured that sensitive files will not be exposed to leaks or theft. mobilEcho 5.0 encrypts all files on mobile devices, sets expiration dates for file access and logs users’ activity. IT can likewise use activEcho 3.0 to enhance their control by crafting security settings and privileges, so specific employees or groups have access and can share all content or a single file.
“The National Institute of Health is a publicly funded medical research organization where they need to support collaboration among researchers both between the many Institutes and Centers, as well as with those who work at research centers outside the NIH,” said J David Hester, PhD, Solutions Architect at LCG Systems, who works with multiple NIH centers and institutes on data security. “mobilEcho and activEcho not only give them the most secure and audit-capable solution that meets their Federal and internal security requirements, it is also one that is so simple, the doctors and other users require no training. It makes secure bring your own device (BYOD) a reality for the NIH.”
Consumer solutions don’t deliver the required level of control and security, and mobile device management (MDM) solutions only provide control over the device and applications, not the files. Additionally, VPN solutions neither allow users to work offline nor effectively and securely share files with partners.
Acronis mobilEcho and activEcho are deployed on-premise giving IT complete control. The two products also go beyond the limitations of MDM solutions and grant secure access to files from mobile devices. The Acronis Policy Engine itself gives the flexibility to implement security and management policies appropriate to the needs of enterprise.
“The workplace has fundamentally changed, and employees are working from home, on the road, and everywhere else,” said Anders Lofgren, VP of product management at Acronis. “Embracing these trends, IT professionals can use mobilEcho 5.0 and activEcho 3.0 to enable their colleagues to work from any device by providing secure access, sharing and syncing of files and data, under a new and easy-to-use Acronis Policy Engine. With these new products, it’s even easier for IT professionals to help their employees stay productive, without losing the security and control that enterprise requires.”
