Primadesk and Symantec Join Forces to Secure Mobile Access to Enterprise Files

Unifyle Virtual File Management Solution Integrates With Symantec Sealed Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 18, 2015) - Primadesk, developer of the premier virtual file management solution for the mobile enterprise, today announced that it has launched the Unifyle for Symantec mobile app for Android and iOS. The app is specifically integrated to work with the Symantec Sealed Program, which wraps a security and policy management layer around any app.

Primadesk's Unifyle solution for the enterprise is a one-hundred percent on-premises solution to cloud-enable existing file shares, like SharePoint, FTP and others, while also consolidating the search, access, editing and sharing functions across all file stores to a single interface. The Unifyle for Symantec mobile app gives users seamless access to both corporate file stores and also any cloud services IT admins allow, like Dropbox, Box and many others. As part of the Symantec Sealed program, IT admins may now apply an additional layer of security and policy control across Unifyle, as with any other productivity-enhancing mobile apps the company may rely on.

"With the exploding number of mobile users in businesses today, there is a dual challenge of increasing mobile access to files, while making sure there is no compromise to the security of that data while it is accessed, edited and shared in the course of doing business," said Srinivasa Venkataraman, CEO of Primadesk. "Our new Unifyle for Symantec app provides organizations with additional security measures to provide IT admins the tools to ensure data security while allowing mobile access by those who need it."

"We are dedicated to helping our customers keep their data secure, regardless of the device they use, so we are excited to welcome Unifyle into the Symantec Sealed Program to further increase workforce mobile productivity and security," said Michael Lin, Vice President, Product Management at Symantec. "We applaud the efforts of our partners who help their customers do business in a secure way, while also factoring in the importance of connectivity and productivity for their employees."

The Unifyle for Symantec app offers enterprise organizations increased access and security for all corporate data, including these productivity and security features and more:
• Add cloud-like features to your existing corporate file stores.
• Extend access to all file shares to mobile devices.
• Search, manage, edit and share files securely from anywhere.
• Integrates tightly with all existing corporate security measures.

Unifyle for Symantec is designed to increase enterprise productivity by securely extending cloud-like access to all file stores from a single interface, and allowing users to work intuitively from any device. With an all on-premises architecture, customers who are unable or unwilling to implement cloud solutions can be assured that all existing security measures apply across this solution automatically. Plus, IT admins will get additional visibility and control into cloud services that users may already be using for work. Primadesk is also working to integrate Symantec's PGP technology as an option for admins or users to selectively encrypt file stores for added security.

The Unifyle for Symantec app is now available for Android on Google Play and for iOS in the App Store.
