AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CodeLathe, the leader in personal cloud products and services, today launched Tonido FileCloud 4.0, adding new mobile device management (MDM) capabilities, file-change notifications, document preview and advanced administrative and configuration options to its on-premises file sharing and mobile access solution.
The only self-hosted enterprise-grade file sharing and sync solution, Tonido FileCloud puts businesses, schools, ISPs and MSPs in control of their data and infrastructure to ensure complete security and privacy, with the convenience, accessibility and real-time sync of web-based file storage. With this latest update, FileCloud 4.0 gives users even more control and customization options to address mobile device management.
"Unlike other on-premises file storage solutions, FileCloud is designed to meet the mobile accessibility and security needs of the modern business environment with robust apps, and now mobile device management, for iOS, Android and Windows 8," said Anis Abdul, CTO of CodeLathe. "With FileCloud 4.0, we've raised the bar even higher, adding more powerful tools and customization options to streamline the most common administrative tasks."
The new FileCloud 4.0 now includes:
- Mobile Device Management (MDM) that gives administrators real-time visibility into all mobile devices connected to FileCloud, to view data access activity and send push notifications to device owners. Using the FileCloud MDM dashboard, admins can also remotely wipe or block mobile devices to prevent unauthorized access to FileCloud if a device is lost or stolen.
- Smart Notifications that alert users in shared folders when files or folders are changed or edited, to keep everyone on the same page with real-time collaboration, consistency and versioning control.
- Built-in document preview that enables users to view common file formats, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and .txt files, inside a web browser, without the need to download the full files and regardless of the software installed. This allows FileCloud users to share documents with other users running different operating systems and software without any conflict or compatibility issues.
- Enhanced administration tools that allow FileCloud admins to customize FileCloud templates, error messages and news feed options with point-and-click ease within the admin user interface dashboard, instead of requiring a configuration file. In addition, admins can see a real-time graphical snapshot of storage capacity, current usage and user activity, as well as add and configure access and security settings for users individually or by uploading a CSV file. Built-in file logging tracks all user-file interactions in a central log file for easy audit reporting.
"FileCloud Version 4.0 is a major milestone for us and the industry. The addition of MDM and remote data wipe capabilities sets a new standard in the market for enterprise-grade cloud storage and sync," said Madhan Kanagavel, founder and CEO of CodeLathe. "The new MDM capabilities make the solution very attractive to security-conscious enterprises."
