MobilEcho Offers Secure Mobile File Management for iPads at Enterprises

GroupLogic has introduced mobilEcho, a mobile file management software product for the iPad.

MobilEcho provides companies with a secure way for their employees to access files from iPads, explains TechCrunch.

So far, MobilEcho has been in beta testing at over 35 enterprise sites for over four months.

MobilEcho lets employees search with ease and learn quickly; provides security to ensure that assets are not compromised; remotely wipes files if a device is lost, stolen or compromised; and gets IT running quickly.

"End users are embracing consumer-oriented mobile devices like iPads in a big way," Jack Gold, president of J. Gold Associates, LLC, said in a company statement. "However, while users concentrate on usability features and increased mobility, corporate IT must ensure that enterprise data assets remain protected against loss, misuse and regulatory non-compliance. It is imperative that companies enable methods to protect and wipe data from these devices, or face potentially costly security breaches and regulatory actions."

"We rely on iPad to greatly enhance the productivity of our staff and better meet the needs of our scientists in a demanding research environment," Ben Hanes, senior systems analyst, Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute, added in the statement. "mobilEcho is the only software on the market that we have found that is made for enterprise IT organizations, and actually enables our IT organization to securely manage remote file access on iPad while having confidence that sensitive and proprietary files and assets cannot be compromised."

MobilEcho can now be purchased through the GroupLogic Web store.

"We are very pleased to be first-to-market with an enterprise-ready secure file management solution that appeals to our 6,000 existing customers across the globe, as well as thousands more enterprises in multiple industries. As tablet adoption increases and employees become even more mobile, GroupLogic is committed to enabling IT to provide simple, secure and managed access to corporate assets,” Chris Broderick, CEO of GroupLogic, said.

MobilEcho was presented during TechCrunch Disrupt in New York City.
