Flying a new kite works securely for Accellion

By

Global mobile solutions vendor Accellion has launched its new kiteworks mobile-first solution that it says allows enterprises and government agencies around the world to securely enable an increasingly mobile workforce.

According to Accellion CEO Yorgen Edholm, the new mobile-first solution provides a “sophisticated new user-experience and three-tier architecture designed to enable people to work securely wherever.”

“Its new mobile design offers integrated productivity tools and universal access to enterprise content stores, making it possible for organisations to realise the productivity gains from a mobile workforce without introducing data security risks.

“Our new mobile-first design and three-tier architecture create a secure solution that is easy to use, and has the extreme scalability that enterprises and government agencies around the world need to securely enable an increasingly mobile workforce.

“Secure business solutions will only be used if they help not hinder employees getting their work done, and kiteworks is the embodiment of that principle.”

With the introduction of kiteworks, Edholm says Accellion upgrades its offerings in three main ways:

•    Mobile-First UX: Rather than taking a PC-based design and pasting it onto a mobile app, kiteworks was designed for mobile first, so that the user’s experience is seamless across all devices from smartphone to tablet to laptop to desktop. Even the admin functionality is available on the smallest mobile devices.  The new UX is icon-based with the mobile user in mind, and includes innovative, industry-first features such as the kiteworks Move Tray, which streamlines the way people share files via mobile devices. The Move Tray enables users to easily and securely share files from different content stores with internal and external users. Other productivity enhancing features include an integrated set of productivity tools for creating, editing and annotating Microsoft Office documents on mobile devices and features for file-centric collaboration, and the assignment and management of file-based tasks

•    Secure Connectivity to ECM Systems: With kiteworks, mobile users have universal access to enterprise content stores including secure, native integration with two new ECMs – Documentum and SharePoint Online – in addition to file shares previously supported, including Microsoft SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013 as well as Windows File Shares. This means that kiteworks users can access, edit and share files from different enterprise content sources, with internal and external users, through one seamless universal interface that honors all ECM access permissions

•    Three-Tier Architecture: With kiteworks Accellion introduces the industry’s first three-tier architecture for private cloud file sharing and collaboration with separate web, application and data layers for defense in depth, extreme scalability and flexibility. The separate layers offer new deployment options for enhanced security, such as putting the web layer in the DMZ for external users, while keeping the application and data layers behind the firewall to reduce the risk of data breaches. Organisations concerned with data sovereignty, can specify where data is stored based on user geography, access rights, or type of content.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
