Quest's AttachThis is designed to encourage the use of SharePoint rather than email attachments for distributing documents between team members.
Without changing users habits, AttachThis automatically uploads attachments to SharePoint, and removes the attachment from the email, replacing it with a link to SharePoint.
This helps achieve the anticipated storage savings, and keeps all edited versions in one place (which is a timesaver for users as well as helping to avoid problems caused by different people updating multiple versions of a document).
"Two of the biggest reasons users don't adopt SharePoint is because they're asked to shift away from behaviour they already know, as well as a tool, Outlook, they're already comfortable with," said strategic product manager Chris McNulty.
"Quest Software's new AttachThis and AttachThis Pro provide solutions that let IT and SharePoint administrators remove roadblocks.
"Organisations using these products will see users adopt SharePoint more readily, as they don't have to change the context of how they work.
"These same users also can be confident that they're storing information in an easy-to-use, collaborative platform that's secure and fully supported by IT."
