We believe our positioning reflects our tireless dedication to innovate and provide our enterprise customers with an industry leading secure content platform that securely connects people to enterprise content from any device, wherever work takes them.”   This Magic Quadrant represents a snapshot of the Enterprise File Synchronisation and Sharing (EFSS) market, as of July 2015. The Magic Quadrant for EFSS solutions is intended to help CIOs and business and IT leaders that are developing their EFSS strategies to assess the right products or services to support them.    Enterprise file synchronisation and sharing (EFSS) refers to a range of on-premises or cloud-based capabilities that enables individuals to synchronize and share documents, photos, videos and files across mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and PCs. Sharing can happen between people (for example, partners and customers) within or outside the organization, or on a mobile device, as data sharing among apps. Access to files in enterprise repositories (such as file servers and content platforms) from mobile devices or remote PCs extends user productivity and collaboration to modern use cases. Security and collaboration support are critical aspects for enterprises to adopt EFSS.   Click here to view the newly published 2015 “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronisation and Sharing” report.   – ENDS –   1 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronisation and Sharing” by Monica Basso, Charles Smulders, Jeff Mann, Carmen Horandi. 22 July 2015.  About the Magic Quadrant Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in its research publications, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors with the highest ratings or other designation.

Accellion added these new capabilities to provide enterprise IT teams with greater control and security over user access to business content. The new security features that have been added to the kiteworks mobile content platform include: Uploader role: This new role enables kiteworks users to allow an external party to securely upload a file into a specified folder, without granting them access to all of the other content saved there. This increases productivity when working with external parties such as customers or vendors who need to upload information, without increasing data security risks by exposing external parties to sensitive information. IP restriction: IT teams can now restrict where someone can access enterprise content sources from, based on the IP address of the device being used. This enables IT to ensure that sensitive information that should only be accessed through an organisation’s network, is not accessed from a non-secure hotel or conference WiFi connection. File level expiration: When sharing time sensitive materials, kiteworks users can now set expiration dates at the file level, to ensure that documents such as business contracts are only accessible for specific dates before the file link expires. OpenText eDocs content connector: Now enterprise organisations can provide employees and external parties secure access to content stored in OpenText eDocs. All content accessed via kiteworks is encrypted and tracked, providing IT with mobile content management including centralised audit and reporting capabilities, to ensure enterprise security and compliance. Mobile printing via PrinterOn: With kiteworks, now mobile-enabled employees can securely print the content they want, from the device they choose, whenever they need, further optimising the mobile workflow. “In a time when enterprise organisations are suffering massive security breaches, it’s more important than ever for leaders to ensure they have the right security and control over sensitive business information,” said Vidhya Ranganathan, SVP of Products at Accellion. “Our new security features and enhancements will ensure that IT teams have the most advanced capabilities on the market to help keep their sensitive business data secure.”About Accellion Accellion, Inc. provides the leading mobile content platform to increase enterprise productivity and ensure data security and compliance.

It is the first enterprise-grade platform for designing secure enterprise mobile applications that transform business processes by securely connecting mobile workers with enterprise content.  The kiteworks mobile content platform enables organisations to mobilise enterprise content and extend existing enterprise infrastructure to mobile to deliver increased business productivity.  It is designed to support the creation of custom enterprise mobile applications and new mobile workflows that offer secure access to enterprise content, whether stored inside or outside the firewall, so employees can work securely wherever. It features a secure mobile container with an integrated mobile editor, so that workers can create, edit or annotate business content securely on smartphones, tablets and wearable devices. Additionally, the kiteworks out-of-the-box security and control features, including remote-wipe, whitelisting, encryption, and comprehensive tracking and reporting features enable IT teams to ensure data security and compliance with HIPAA, SOX and GLBA. “The digital enterprise is increasingly a mobile enterprise. Business users and customers are showing a sharp interest in mobile devices and mobile applications. Cloud computing enticed many business departments and companies to become more agile with their applications but fundamentally did not enable new processes to significantly improve business value. The greater long-term value — and at the same time challenge — is the transition of extending and creating new business applications for mobile platforms,” according to the July 29, 2014 Gartner report “Hype Cycle for Mobile Applications and Development, 2014.” “Enterprises need to give their workers customised, streamlined productivity apps so they can get work done efficiently on any device, and the new kiteworks mobile content platform is designed to do just that” said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at ESG. "While most EFSS solutions were designed for sharing files and syncing across laptops and desktops, kiteworks was designed for mobile, and it supports the most important capabilities for a new generation of enterprise device use, the ability to access, view, share and collaborate on enterprise content wherever it is stored.” The kiteworks mobile content platform consists of the following elements: Secure mobile container with built in secure editor and file sharing and collaboration capabilities to enable new mobile workflows and secure enterprise mobile apps Secure content connectors for secure access to enterprise content systems including Microsoft SharePoint, Windows FileShares, HomeDrive, Documentum, OpenText, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box and OneDrive. REST APIs for deep integration with existing IT infrastructure as well as enabling developers to build customer apps and extensions. Mobile SDKs enabling the rapid creation of secure enterprise mobile apps using the native platform of choice (iOS, Android, and Google Glass) with secure mobile content containerisation included. Reference apps that illustrate the power of the kiteworks platform and provide code samples and tutorials. Developer portal offering a streamlined online community for developers to exchange ideas, get support, and share their contributions. Developer package – a free fully featured version of the kiteworks platform for developers to get started with. “Enterprise organisations desperately need solutions to securely enable their mobile workforces; the recently announced partnership between Apple and IBM highlighted just how big of an issue this is for organisations,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO, Accellion. “IT and mobile executives are under pressure to create mobile applications that ensure confidential enterprise information stays secure and compliant while helping mobile employees to work smarter and more productively. The new kiteworks mobile content platform fills this gap, providing the missing technology for secure content access, editing, creation and sharing on mobile and wearable devices.” The kiteworks mobile content platform is now available in limited beta, including access to a developer portal (developer.kiteworks.com), a free developer package, content connectors and the REST APIs for building and integrating with enterprise applications. The full platform including the mobile SDKs and reference applications will be generally available in December 2014.

Alternatively, administrators can create custom user profiles to enforce 2FA.Security Features Organisations today are adopting BYOD policies, and to ensure the security and integrity of data on mobile devices, enterprise organisations need solutions to enable employees to securely connect to content.

Selective remote wipe - selectively wipe enterprise content saved in the secure mobile container when a device is lost or stolen. Whitelist helper apps – centrally manage and control which applications are allowed to open files within the kiteworks mobile app and prevent users from opening files using unsecure consumer apps. PIN access – Configure offline PIN settings with full administrative control for accessing files in the secure mobile container. In addition to the augmented 2FA security feature, Accellion has added full content search and custom branding to the kiteworks solution.Full Content Search The new kiteworks full content search capability enables users to quickly find relevant content by offering the ability to efficiently search and filter any content stored within kiteworks. Users can filter content based on file/folder name, author, date/time, file type and size. For example, users can query content searches such as “find all Word documents modified by Nina in the last week that contain the term ‘Product Roadmap 2014,'" and find the exact documents they need. The kiteworks full content search capability is available on mobile devices in addition to the web interface.Custom Branding The kiteworks custom branding capabilities allow organisations to customise the look and feel of the kiteworks solution to make consistent with corporate branding and identity.

Economic value analysis from ESG Group shows higher benefits from Accellion 2014-08-27T01:13:52Z economic-value-analysis-from-esg-group-shows-higher-benefits-from-accellion SYDNEY – August 27, 2014 - Accellion, Inc., the pioneer in providing mobile file sharing and collaboration solutions to enterprise organisations that enable increased business productivity while ensuring security and compliance, today announced that a new Economic Value Analysis (EVA) from the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) shows that a private cloud deployment of Accellion’s kiteworks solution provides five times the ROI over a public cloud file sharing solution for a typical enterprise.   The ESG EVA comprises an ROI calculator and accompanying report that compares the annual cost of ownership and annual cost benefits of deploying the Accellion kiteworks private cloud file sharing solution as compared to public cloud alternatives.  The improved ROI from kiteworks results from a lower annual cost of ownership, greater cost benefits from increased productivity and IT operations improvements and also a significantly lower risk of data breaches.   "Deploying kiteworks offers the opportunity for enterprise organisations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower total cost of ownership compared with EFSS alternatives," said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at ESG. "In fact, ESG's analysis of a typical enterprise use case demonstrates kiteworks results in an impressive estimated ROI of nearly 400%, thanks primarily to kiteworks’ productivity benefits.  This compares with less than 75% ROI for generic consumer-grade cloud solutions that don’t have some of the advanced productivity and deployment options such as those kiteworks offers. "   “With many options available for file sharing and collaboration it can be difficult to determine the true benefits and costs involved in an enterprise deployment,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. “We strongly believe in the cost benefits of deploying a private cloud file sharing solution which were validated in this ESG study. Now, with this tool, enterprise IT teams get a tailored analysis of the ROI they could expect from kiteworks compared with other EFSS solutions based on their specific needs, so they can better choose the product that is right for their organisation.”   The kiteworks by Accellion solution features a three-tier private cloud architecture and mobile-first design with integrated productivity tools for secure creation, editing, annotation and sharing of content on mobile devices, including universal access to enterprise content stores. With kiteworks, enterprises have content access controls, tracking and auditing capabilities, all while leveraging cloud computing to realise improved productivity gains.   To learn more about the ESG EVA calculator, click here.  Methodology The data here was computed using the ROI calculator, created and validated by independent analyst firm ESG. The analysis was designed to help organisations determine the relative costs and benefits of leveraging kiteworks for their EFSS needs compared with a "present mode of operation"  (PMO) that reflects the consumer-grade, public cloud EFSS solutions customers may be using today. The goal of the ESG Economic Value Analysis (EVA) is to provide potential customers with a comprehensive pictures of the direct and indirect costs and benefits they should consider when evaluating an investment in an EFSS solution. The analysis was created based on third party interviews of Accellion and alternative customers, along with industry and proprietary data. The ESG report takes into consideration how a customer plans to use kiteworks, their collaboration needs, storage environment and business costs.  About Accellion Accellion, Inc. is an award-winning private company that provides mobile solutions to enterprise organisations that enable increased business productivity while ensuring security and compliance.
