Accellion Offers New Microsoft Integration Features for kiteworks Secure Content Platform

Support for Microsoft Office for Android, Azure Cloud and Windows 10 Enhances Existing Microsoft Capabilities for Increased Employee Productivity and Data Security

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 15, 2015) - Accellion, Inc., the leading provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration that ensure data security and compliance, today announced it has added additional integrations with Microsoft solutions to its award winning kiteworks secure content platform.

The new Microsoft integration capabilities available on kiteworks extend the choices customers have to securely access, edit and share content using Microsoft products and services. Microsoft has played a large part in shaping how employees work. As more enterprise content is generated and stored in the cloud and more employees access that content on different devices, employees need a variety of options when sharing and collaborating on enterprise content.

"By providing support for Microsoft products and services within the kiteworks platform, enterprise employees get the best of both worlds -- flexibility and security," commented Hormazd Romer, Senior Director of Product Marketing. "Our goal is to enable employees to be productive with products they are already familiar with while enabling increased data security and control."

Accellion's new kiteworks features include the following key capabilities:

  • Support for Microsoft Office for Android:  Enables enterprise employees to take full advantage of the native Microsoft Office applications on Android devices and allows users to securely open, edit and save files to kiteworks. This provides another choice of editors in addition to the secure integrated editor that is included with the kiteworks mobile apps. Similar support for iOS is already available.

  • Azure cloud support: Provides organizations a secure private-cloud deployment option for the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, enabling access to all of the features and capabilities of kiteworks, including real-time access to enterprise content stores that allows users to securely view, download, edit, share and upload files from tablets, smartphones, or desktop systems.

  • Windows 10 support: Empowers users running the Windows 10 operating system on a mobile device or PC to securely create, access, and collaborate on enterprise content, enable new workflows, enhance productivity and leverage the many other features and capabilities available on the kiteworks secure content platform.

These new capabilities extend the Microsoft integrations already supported by kiteworks including Enterprise and Cloud Content Connectors for enabling secure access to enterprise content wherever it is stored on-premise or in the cloud via a single pane of glass:

  • Windows File Shares (CIFS and DFS) - kiteworks Enterprise Content Connector
  • Microsoft SharePoint (2007, 2010, and 2013) - kiteworks Enterprise Content Connector
  • Microsoft SharePoint Online - kiteworks Cloud Content Connector
  • Microsoft OneDrive for Business - kiteworks Cloud Content Connector

In total, the kiteworks platform enables secure access and sharing of enterprise content across these and many other content sources to increase productivity while ensuring enterprise-grade IT security and compliance.
