Introducing Acronis Access: The First Solution to Comprehensively Address Enterprise-Level Needs for Mobile File Access, Synching and Sharing

New Product Allows Employees to Conveniently Work and Collaborate From Anywhere and on Any Device, While Providing IT the Level of Security and Control They Need

ARLINGTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Today Acronis®, a global data protection company, announced Acronis Access, the first solution to turn any mobile device into a true business platform by integrating both mobile content management (MCM) and controlled file sync and sharing. Acronis Access is designed with a special focus on enterprise IT departments, especially those in highly regulated industries. It allows IT to maintain security and control, and comply with regulations, while enabling employees to easily and efficiently access and share corporate content with internal and external constituents.

"Acronis Access has revolutionized mobility with our clients," said J David Hester, PhD, Solutions architect at LCG Systems. "The federal IT departments we work with had no sanctioned way in which to collaborate with external researchers. Using Acronis activEcho® provided us with all the necessary tools to manage, monitor and secure our data and meet NIST compliance standards, and before Acronis mobilEcho®, we had no simple way for our end users to access internal network resources on their iPads® and iPhones®. Acronis Access unites both functionalities and gives IT departments everything they need: support for two-factor authentication, access to their network home directories, shared folders and collaboration. In addition, with Acronis Access, they can now map to network shares without the cumbersome need of requesting centralized or local support."

Acronis Access is powered by Acronis AnyData Technology and is on-premise, so enterprise IT knows exactly where their company's data is. It also allows IT to give their employees the functionality they want, so they can remain productive in a controlled and secure environment. End-users can access content from file servers, NAS and SharePoint®, as well as their own desktops/laptops, and share files with people inside and outside their organization.

"Many employees today use personal smartphones and tablets to access sensitive corporate information, even if their organization doesn't permit a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy," said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "With this growing trend, mobile device management (MDM) doesn't go far enough. It isn't about controlling the employee's devices; it is about managing and securing corporate content. That is why companies need solutions like Acronis Access for Mobile Content Management. It gives IT more granular control of sensitive corporate information to ensure compliance, control and security for IT managers."

Acronis Access delivers a number of key features, including:

  • On-premise deployment to provide IT with complete control
  • Active Directory integration, which makes authentication, provisioning and user management seamless
  • Military-grade, FIPS 140-2 certified encryption module and CAC/PIV authentication
  • The Acronis Policy Engine, which provides granular management capabilities to create security policies and ensures control and compliance, with more than 50 security and user permission policies available
  • Allows IT departments to easily manage and scale their environments
  • In-app editing and creation capability, to allow employees to edit Office documents and annotate PDFs within the secure Access sandbox, eliminating data leakage and improving productivity
  • An easy and intuitive UI to make it simple and natural for users, with virtually no training
  • An audit log that gives IT the visibility to see what users are doing, including which documents they access and share with others.

"The age of one size fits all is over. People have more choices than ever, so it's crucial that IT departments give employees products they'll actually want to use and the flexibility to use the device of their choice," said Anders Lofgren, VP of product management at Acronis. "Acronis Access provides a user-friendly UI and seamless integration with Active Directory®, so both users and IT are happy. Plus the audit log gives IT the oversight necessary to ensure security and compliance."
