Freedom Mobile natively integrates with Panzura Freedom hybrid cloud NAS to eliminate separate enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) and NAS filer data islands so enterprises can securely access and collaborate on centralized data globally from any Apple or Android mobile device. Enterprises accomplish this by using the same Active Directory (AD) credentials, dramatically simplifying management, improving employee productivity, and lowering overall costs versus maintaining two separate solutions.
Enterprise File Sync and Share
Modern enterprise users demand data access anywhere, anytime, and on any device. With Panzura Mobile, users can natively access, share, manage, edit, and create files within Panzura CloudFS using any iOS, Android, Mac OS, or Microsoft Windows device, eliminating the need for third-party solutions such as Box or Dropbox.
While file sync and share solutions may offer the ability to share files, they also take data out of the control of IT. Panzura Mobile fully integrates with Panzura Freedom utilizing the same global namespace and cloud storage as all your Freedom instances do today.
Enterprise Class Security
Organizations retain total control and maintain access to their data through Active Directory (AD) authentication. As with any Freedom instance, all data is fully encrypted, both at rest and in flight, using your private keys. Auditing capabilities mean organizations always know how their data is being accessed.
Since data is stored in the Mobile Data Management (MDM), integration means that IT is always in control of the data. Data can be shared outside of the AD Domain using passwords protected and expiring links.
Flexible Sharing Control Policies
Enterprises maintain control of their file sharing policies by restricting file and folder sharing to specific domains. Users can read and write to their files and folders as if they were in the office.
For users outside of the organization, full control of sharing content is enabled by public or password-protected links. Links can be set to expire when needed.
Benefits of Panzura CloudFS
Panzura Mobile leverages the benefits of Panzura CloudFS including deduplication, compression, and military-grade encryption to ensure efficient and secure file storage that meet cost and compliance requirements. Since the Panzura Mobile connects to CloudFS, there is no change to a user’s normal workflow.
