Acronis and Citrix Further the Accessibility, Availability and Protection of Critical Data
Woburn, MA – May 23, 2013 – Acronis® today announced that it has joined the Citrix Ready Worx Verified partner program with the integration of its secure mobile file management software mobilEcho® with Citrix MDX technology. Acronis mobilEcho will soon be made available to more than 250,000 existing Citrix enterprise customers and 10,000 Citrix resellers on the Citrix Worx App Gallery to further the accessibility, availability and protection of critical data on enterprise mobile devices.
Citrix MDX technology allows IT to set comprehensive policy-based controls such as data leakage prevention and the ability to remote lock, wipe and encrypt apps and data. Enterprise IT teams can then apply security and access policies to participating Worx applications, including mobilEcho, across any iOS™ and Android™ device.
“As more personal devices infiltrate enterprise environments, security becomes a top concern as IT strives to ensure critical data is safe from leakage, malware and hackers,” commented Anders Lofgren, director of mobility solutions at Acronis. “The integration of mobilEcho with the Citrix Ready Worx Verified partner program will help IT organizations safely embrace mobile trends in the workplace while improving the security of their mobile strategy overall. This is ultimately what we all hope to achieve, and we’re excited to be teaming up with Citrix with this goal in mind.”
To extend the product as enterprise ready, Acronis used the Citrix Worx SDK to easily embed MDX technology in its mobilEcho app, extending the product as a secure solution to Citrix customers using any Android or iOS based device. Citrix MDX technology allows end users to maintain direct, secure access to the mobilEcho app while enabling IT to enforce the data-security and data-access rights required by their organization. This integration will further help mobility IT managers manage the growing number of mobile apps end users are adopting for productivity and on-demand data access.
“We have recognized a huge opportunity in the mobility space for our customers and the industry, and want to ensure enterprise security concerns are addressed,” said Chris Fleck, VP Mobility Solutions and Alliances. “mobilEcho is a great addition to our Citrix Ready Worx Verified partner program and a perfect example of a secure, easy-to-use application that allows users to enhance their productivity from anywhere on any device.”
mobilEcho enables IT organizations to provide iOS or Android mobile device users with the identical secure and managed access to files and content on enterprise file servers, SharePoint® and NAS storage, that they experience from their laptop or desktop. This includes the ability to edit, annotate and collaborate on any documents. Access rights are integrated with Active Directory® to ease management and support compliance.
