(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Acronis®, the global leader in new generation data protection, announced Acronis Access 7, which includes a data access, sync and share edition for small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and a separate edition for larger enterprises. Designed to address modern business needs including mobile device proliferation, business and employee requirements to support ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD), Acronis Access Advanced 7 and Acronis Access 7 are easy, complete and safe on-premise solutions offering total data control and security anywhere from any device – smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac®.
When employees use cloud-only file sharing solutions that are not approved by their IT department, this poses significant security risks to their businesses. Acronis Access solutions offer easy, complete and safe alternatives to many of the popular file sharing solutions on the market that leverages all existing customer infrastructure and data with no need for migration, allowing employees to securely share data both internally and externally without putting company data at risk.
Mobilizing Small and Midsize Businesses (SMB)
Designed exclusively for SMBs, Acronis Access 7 is the easiest mobile file access, sync and share solution for companies to buy, use and administer. The product allows employees to remain productive and efficient while travelling, enabling them to access and edit company documents without data leakage risk, easily share updated financial spreadsheets or presentations with their colleagues, and safely share content with customers, partners or prospects. Acronis understands that mobile devices have become an integral work environment component for productive and successful SMB organizations, changing the way to do business. In fact, 67 percent of SMBs view mobile solutions as critical to their businesses, and 83 percent have already deployed mobile apps to help improve employee productivity.
“Acronis Access 7 serves as a secure alternative to cloud solutions and allows sensitive business content to remain on premises and be shared under IT control,” said Terri McClure, ESG Senior Analyst. “And SMB organizations that can’t afford more in-depth and complex MDM capabilities will appreciate having built-in core functionality.”
