Cortado Workplace integrates a file server into smartphones
Thursday, October 18, 2018 — Enterprise mobility expert Cortado Mobile Solutions announces the availability of its enterprise file sharing solution, Cortado Workplace. The on-premises software enables employees with notebooks, tablets and smartphones to access exactly the same drives and files on their mobile devices as on their desktop workstations. Setup is instant as the existing access rights from Microsoft’s Active Directory can used. Cortado Workplace can be implemented as a stand-alone solution or in combination with MDM/EMM systems such as MobileIron, AirWatch (VMware Workspace ONE) or Citrix XenMobile.
Cortado presents its new on-premises file sharing solution, Cortado Workplace. With comprehensive management of file access, secure access from mobile devices to the enterprise network can be achieved, even if these devices aren’t managed by means of an MDM solution. This means that users can securely access necessary data at any time required, and also for example, save data while on the move directly from their mobile devices to the corporate server.
Cortado Workplace also supports the AppConfig Alliance standard, enabling seamless integration into MDM/EMM systems such as MobileIron, AirWatch (VMware Workspace ONE) or Citrix XenMobile.
While typical enterprise file sharing solutions have on-premises connectors that allow access to local file directories, Cortado Workplace goes one step further and places file access completely in the context of the Microsoft Active Directory user. While a more complex background architecture, it offers users and admins a whole range of advantages when compared to simple connectors:
- Users have mobile access to exactly the same files and directories as from their traditional desktop workstation.
- Files can also remain where they are – even for mobile access. This enables direct collaboration between mobile and office-based employees.
- The IT administration can see all actions on mobile devices in the Windows Log exactly the same way as activities on desktops. All security, rights and compliance systems remain completely intact. Every interaction can be tracked with the Windows Audit Trail.
This makes Cortado Workplace the ideal solution for all organizations wishing to keep their own data in their own network now and in the future. It also enables mobile data access for employees that is just as convenient and easy to use as familiar cloud services such as Dropbox etc.
