San Jose, May 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Averail™, a SaaS mobile content solution provider for the enterprise, today announced product updates to Averail Access, including the ability to securely access and manage content stored in Box and on corporate shared drives. Averail Access allows the mobile workforce to browse, search, edit and share content housed in a wide variety of places - be it stored on-premise behind a firewall or in the cloud - all from a single app.
By connecting mobile employees to the places where business content is already stored, Averail helps enterprises leverage existing IT investments and prevent the content replication that drives up costs and puts sensitive business information at risk.
"These updates make Averail Access the secure mobile content solution connected to more content repositories than any other mobile enterprise offering," said Averail CEO, Marc Olesen. "Now employees on the go have a single app to access all business content from a mobile device, while enterprises preserve control and maintain visibility over mobile documents."
'One Door' Access to All Mobile Content
For employees, the Averail Access mobile application for iPad® means simple, single door access to their business documents, whether stored in Box, Dropbox, Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365, on a shared drive or another repository.
· Enterprise document repositories supported include SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013 including Office365; MySites, and SkyDrive Pro.
· Network drives and file shares supported via WebDAV and CIFS.
· Cloud and hybrid cloud storage solutions supported include: Box; Dropbox; Egnyte; Alfresco; BarracudaDrive; CloudSafe.com; DigitalBucket; DriveHQ; Dropdav; Egnyte; FilesAnywhere; GoDaddy; GMX; Nuxeo; ownCloud; PowerFolder; Smartvault; SpringCM; Web.de SmartDrive, and Zetta.
Unlike other solutions, Averail Access connects directly to existing infrastructure eliminating the need for employees to duplicate content or enterprises to deploy new or redundant storage, which allows organizations to maintain established, critical security standards.
Averail Access is ideal for companies with large teams of mobile professionals, such as sales and marketing professionals who need timely access to corporate content to collaborate in the field, and those with strict corporate governance or regulatory requirements over information, including financial, healthcare or insurance professionals.
Extensive IT Control
Averail Access gives IT administrators unprecedented control and visibility into mobile documents. Admins establish document, device and user permissions to ensure sensitive mobile content stays safe, while enabling mobile productivity.
Administrators can publish specific files to folders on the mobile app allowing end users to automatically see the content when they sign into their device. They can also layer on additional policies, permissions and security protections by individual user, granting access to specific repositories and locking the use of others.
