NEW YORK, SINGAPORE and MUMBAI, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Enterprise File Sync & Share (EFSS) leader Vaultize (http://www.vaultize.com) today announced the launch of the new incarnation of its file sharing and anywhere access platform with integrated Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) features and with a sophisticated new user experience (UX) in line with today's need for Mobile-centric approach to enterprise solutions.
Vaultize becomes the first EFSS vendor to fully integrate EMM into a single offering - giving enterprises complete control and visibility over the sensitive corporate data, irrespective of the device used for accessing and sharing - facilitating increased adoption of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) even in highly regulated and security-conscious verticals. Vaultize now includes Mobile Device Management (MDM) features such as remote wipe, data containerization, storage and network encryption, PIN protection and white-listing of apps for mitigation of security and protection concerns with BYOD. Vaultize goes beyond MDM with features like automatic wiping based on geo-location or IP address or time-out. It further facilitates Mobile Content Management (MCM) through access rights and allows corporate IT to prevent data loss, security and compliance breaches by controlling what users can do with corporate data on their mobile devices using natively built-in document editor.

"The newly upgraded platform has multifold benefits. From the end-user perspective, it provides an easy and elegant mobile-first user experience through company managed as well as employee-owned BYOD devices, facilitating VPN-free anywhere remote access, sync and sharing of enterprise content on endpoints as well as enterprise content stores, and so helping the mobile workforce stay productive everywhere," said Ankur Panchbudhe, CTO and Co-founder of Vaultize.
"We have been using Vaultize for collaboration within and outside the company giving our people ability to access and share files irrespective of where they are and which device they are using. The integrated MCM with file sharing gives us peace of mind when it comes to security and data loss risks associated with workforce mobility" said Pragnesh Shah, CIO of Arvind Limited, one of the world's largest denim manufacturers with over 25,000 employees and revenue exceeding $1 Billion.
"Vaultize platform with fully integrated MDM and MCM features means that for remote access and sharing - which a prominent use case for BYOD - our customers need not invest in any other MDM that potentially intrude and control the mobile devices creating an impediment in the adoption of BYOD," said Anand Kekre, CEO and Co-founder of Vaultize. "But, we can also work in conjunction with MDM offerings from other vendors in scenarios where the scope of device, app and content management is wider than just secure access and EFSS."
The new Vaultize apps for iOS and Android have built-in editor for Microsoft Office documents and PDF annotation. Enterprise IT can have granular control over copy-paste, sharing or opening in third-party mobile applications, printing and emailing. This has been made possible through policy driven control over the mobile apps and its built-in document editor. All this combined with the already built-in and patent-pending mobile data containerization technology ensures that data remains secure source-to-destination and cradle-to-grave. Containerization also allows IT to wipe data remotely, or even automatically, based on various policies.
