Citrix Amplifies Enterprise “Follow-me Data” Strategy with New ShareFile Innovations
Introduces StorageZones, StorageZone Connectors and On-demand Sync to Accelerate Enterprise-wide Adoption
BARCELONA, Spain – Today at Citrix Synergy™, the conference where mobile workstyles and cloud services meet, Citrix announced the immediate availability of Citrix ShareFile™ with StorageZones. This innovative new solution gives employees all the ease and flexibility of popular cloud-based data sharing solutions, while providing IT with the ability to choose where data is stored, including on-premises within their own secure datacenters. This “best-of-both-worlds” approach gives users true “follow-me data” services across all corporate and personal mobile devices, while allowing the business to meet strict security, data sovereignty and compliance requirements. ShareFile with StorageZones also allows IT to take advantage of the economic benefits and effortless management of a cloud-based service. In addition, the company announced a new innovation that provides a single point of access to user data residing across various data platforms and a new sync feature optimized for virtual desktops.
Trends such as BYOD and workshifting are driving the need to collaborate and share data across a global, mobile workforce and with third parties. According to an August 2012 Enterprise Strategy Group report*, a vast majority (70 percent) of organizations know or suspect their employees are using personal online file sharing accounts without formal IT approval. As a result, organizations are facing significant security and compliance risks.
To address these demands and extend access to data wherever it is stored, Citrix announced six new capabilities to ShareFile Enterprise, the company’s follow-me data solution for storing, syncing and sharing data securely, both within and outside organizations.
We’ve already seen significant interest in StorageZones from customers, especially those in Europe, where enterprises often require that sensitive documents be stored on premises or in particular legal jurisdictions. ShareFile with StorageZones empowers IT with choice, providing the ability to mix and match and create the right data storage solution for their business. Today’s addition of StorageZone Connectors furthers our vision of allowing users to access all of their important enterprise data securely from any device.
