Fight Corporate Data Leakage and Support Employee Freedom of Movement With The Latest Enhancements To Secure Enterprise File Sharing

WOBURN, MA — October 24, 2012 — GroupLogic®, the industry’s leading provider of software products that unlock the power of new enterprise platforms, announced today the newest version of its secure enterprise file sharing software: activEcho®2.6. activEcho provides IT managers and administrators with more options for improved control in areas such as management, process visibility, security, and deployment flexibility. activEcho® furthers the mobile workforce’s ability to easily access critical files on the platform of their own choosing – all under secure IT management.

The challenge of managing data floating from device to device outside of the enterprise’s internal IT infrastructure is giving IT managers a major headache. A recent survey by Acronis at VMworld in San Francisco, found file synchronization, data protection, device compatibility and information security are equally concerning issues resulting from the BYOD phenomenon. Additionally, almost half of respondents admitted to using DropBox® for corporate file sharing without approval.

According to a Gartner report titled “How to Control File Synchronization Services and Prevent

Corporate Data Leakage,” authors Jay Heiser and Lawrence Pingree recognize “consumer-grade personal file synchronization services are creating huge potential for data leakage, version conflicts and compliance gaps”. As the report notes, “A growing number of enterprise decision makers are concerned that ubiquitous file sharing onto personal devices via the cloud needs to be controlled.”

GroupLogic’s activEcho® was designed specifically to allow enterprise users to sync files safely and securely from anywhere and any device, giving IT the peace of mind and comfort of knowing no files will be shared without access approval.

Specific features and benefits of activEcho 2.6 include:

 ·  Enhanced security:

           o   User account expiration.

           o   Invite expiration.

           o   Allow or prevent guests from inviting others.

           o   Control over list visibility

 ·  Process visibility and ease of use:

           o   Single Click access to changed files

           o   Recently changed files list.

·  Management:

          o   Log and user views with pagination, new filters and performance

enhancements.

          o   Individual user quotas.

          o   Load balancing across multiple nodes.

 · Deployment flexibility and platform coverage:

         o   Android support for tablets and smart phones.

“activEcho has been built to deliver ease of use and uncompromised security compliance,” said Marcelo Andrieu, product manager at GroupLogic. “Version 2.6 not only  gives end users and IT Managers the advanced features they need to access and maintain the integrity and security of their documents at all times, it also expands the benefits of secure, seamless file sharing to BYOD Android users.”

 activEcho 2.6 is available today as a free upgrade to existing customers under maintenance contract. GroupLogic also offers a free trial of activEcho for interested IT organizations. activEcho is priced per user and can be deployed anywhere, allowing for the access, syncing and sharing of as many files as needed, no matter the size.
