Acronis Access Advanced Brings Sophisticated Security and Precise Control to Mobile Data Sharing

New version adds secure file editing with Microsoft Office Online, multi-user co-authoring, and extended file sharing capability.

SYDNEY, Australia, 25 September 2017 – Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection for business and consumers, today announced the availability of Acronis Access Advanced 8.0 — the latest version of mobile file access, sync & share solution for enterprises.

Acronis Access Advanced 8.0 introduces new features designed to increase security, compliance and convenience protecting shared data. It also extends flexibility of integrating with other mobile applications. The new features include web-based file editing with Microsoft Office Online, simultaneous editing of documents by multiple users, extended sharing using nested folders with independent permissions, support for Microsoft Intune Mobile Application Management (MAM) without Intune MDM enrollment, allowing Intune app management with any MDM solution, and ZIP archive creation features inside the iOS app.

Acronis Access Advanced is a perfect solution for companies who value data and performance. Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 Team uses Acronis Access Advanced to share confidential telemetry data and R&D documents between the factory, trackside engineers and subcontractors. “With Acronis Access Advanced, we’re in full control of our data. We can track the information path and even remote-wipe a laptop, tablet or mobile device if it is lost or stolen to prevent a competitor from accessing the data. Our plan is to share sensible data that way,” said Raffaele Boschetti, Scuderia Toro Rosso Head of IT.

US Air Force Air Combat Command A4, which maintains military aircraft, also uses Acronis Access Advanced. It allowed them to dramatically reduce electronic document management overhead by controlling and monitoring data on mobile devices remotely.

Acronis Access Advanced simplifies the management of shared data while meeting the strictest requirements for secure file sharing. It also removes the risks associated with using public file sync & share services, such as inability to choose data storage location or monitor user activities. It addresses the need of modern businesses for secure file access, sync and share — something that has been validated by a 200% YoY growth in sales.

Key capabilities

• Mobile, web and desktop client access • Encryption in-transit and on-device • Full IT control of sharing options and recipients • Mobile Office editing and PDF annotation • Web-based Office editing via MS Office Online • iOS document provider extension for convenient view, edit and save back from other mobile apps • Remote lock and wipe of mobile app • Integration with leading MAM platforms from MobileIron, BlackBerry, Microsoft and others

“Mobile file access, sync and share, is an integral part of every business. Today’s employees spend hours working on their mobile devices, both at home and in transit. Without a secure solution like Acronis Access Advanced, they’re putting their business data at risk. Acronis Access Advanced gives employers an easy way to control what is shared and who accesses the data.
