Nexsan Enhances Unity with Mobile and Web Access, Putting Data Where You Work

Hyper-Unified Storage Platform Enables Users to Access and Share Corporate Data Securely While on the Go

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 2, 2016) -   Nexsan®, a global leader in unified storage solutions, today announced enhancements to its Unity™ hyper-unified storage platform that provide users with the fastest and most secure solution for accessing and sharing data on-premises, or "on-the-go." Unity is now the first and only to deliver mobile apps for iOS and Android, as well as web apps for laptops and desktops, ensuring users can access and share data conveniently, while still benefiting from Unity's performance, scalability, and security.

"The benefits of Unity were so clear to us, at NCE, that we not only added it to our solutions portfolio, but we have also implemented the technology within our own business," said John Greenwood, EMEA Solution Sales Director, NCE. "With offices in Europe and North America, and much of our business actively engaged and operational in the field, Unity provides us with an enterprise storage platform allowing our business as a whole to benefit from secure file sync and share capabilities. Now with mobile access our users will be able to access their files wherever they are, but securely."

"Today's dynamic workforce wants access to critical business content from anywhere they want to work," said Victoria Grey, CMO, Nexsan. "With the release of our new Unity mobile and web apps, we are empowering workforce productivity that's secure, easy and collaborative. Now, wherever users want to work, they have the access they need to browse, upload, download and share files with the confidence IT needs that data is both protected and secure."

Using the new Unity mobile and web apps users can quickly create and send secure links via email to files stored on Unity. This eliminates the need to send large email files and provides access to information from anywhere. Using a private cloud infrastructure, the apps insure both privacy and security, using Active Directory permissions and credentials, while delivering seamless access without a VPN.

Key features of the Unity mobile and web apps include:

  • Browse files from user folders stored on the organization's Unity system(s)
  • Upload, download and share files between iOS and Android devices and computers
  • Access shared folders as read only or read-write, depending on user permissions
  • Easily find needed files with an easy search function
  • Quickly create and send secure links via email to files stored on Unity, even to people outside the organization

The Unity mobile apps are available now at no charge from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. The Unity web app is also available for free to any Unity user. For users looking to convert their Nexsan NST system to a Nexsan Unity private cloud solution, Nexsan is offering a limited time promotion for a free software conversion through December 31, 2016.

About Nexsan Unity
Unity is a scalable, flexible NAS device that allows IT to mix-and-match high-performance flash with inexpensive hard disks and mix block storage for VMware, databases or Exchange with file storage for home directories and sharing. It stands out by including a full private cloud infrastructure at no additional cost. Instead of spending on complex, expensive third-party products to share across sites, Unity includes a plug-and-play ability to sync files across any number of disparate locations with secure communication across standard Internet connections the easiest way to ensure high availability (HA) across locations and high-speed access to large files. It also helps to alleviate the risk of unsanctioned business user adoption of various public cloud-sharing services, by delivering similar functionality and convenience, yet fully under the control and protection of corporate IT.
