Citrix ShareFile StorageZone Connectors for Network Drives and SharePoint

Citrix helps enterprises mobilize user data – including data within SharePoint and network drives– while providing IT with comprehensive control to secure enterprise data everywhere.
ShareFile StorageZone Connectors Extends Mobile Access to Enterprise Data
Enterprises have large volumes of data in SharePoint, in network drives and within virtual desktop environments. Enabling effortless and secure access to this data from outside of corporate networks, or from mobile devices, has been a major challenge for IT.
ShareFile StorageZone Connectors help enterprises provide secure mobile access to data behind the corporate firewall, extending the value of SharePoint and network drives in a BYO world. Other file sharing services require the additional step of migrating or syncing SharePoint and network drives data for mobile access. StorageZone Connectors provides the unique option to create a direct and secure connection to data in its original location. ShareFile also includes a built-in mobile content editor, which supports standard SharePoint functions like check-out, edit and check-in from mobile devices.
The StorageZone Controller provides users with secure access to SharePoint document libraries and network file drives through StorageZones Connectors. Users log onto ShareFile from their mobile device and retrieve a list of enterprise data repositories, which may include network drives and SharePoint document libraries. After choosing an enterprise resource, the user authenticates with the StorageZone Controller using their company credentials, and is then able to enumerate and securely transfer files between the mobile device and the customer data center.
