Syncplicity by Axway is excited to announce the general availability of the Syncplicity by Axway Add-in for Microsoft Outlook and Silent On-boarding for desktop clients to help organizations expand their data protection envelope.
With business users sharing more and more content with internal and external collaborators and with so many file-sharing options to choose from, protecting enterprise content can be a challenge for IT.
The Syncplicity by Axway Add-in for Outlook enables users to send any size file or folder from Microsoft Outlook, without changing the way they work. Users simply “attach” content from their desktop or even their Syncplicity by Axway cloud, and recipients receive files as a secure link. With its ease of use, users don’t need to move content into consumer applications to share.
The Syncplicity by Axway Add-in for Outlook enhances data protection in a few ways.
1. Files are delivered to recipients as a secure link and fully track-able
2. Senders can require recipients to authenticate to retrieve files
3. Senders can require password protection for files
4. IT can set file exclusion policies – prevent users from sending .PST files or any sensitive files.
5. The solution respects existing rights management policies, ensuring IT maintains control of digital content no matter where it ends up.
But Syncplicity by Axway’s goal to expand the data protection envelope doesn’t stop there. We are excited to release Silent On-boarding, which enables organizations to deploy desktop clients without any user involvement, ensuring real-time protection of files across a user’s devices.
Once enabled, enterprises don’t need to rely on end-users to install the desktop client, go through a first time setup, and select folders to sync. Right from the intuitive Admin Console, Administrators have the ability to enable Silent On-boarding of Syncplicity by Axway desktop clients and keep the following steps hidden from users:
a. Entering computer name and selecting a default Syncplicity by Axway folder location
b. Selecting special folders for backup (Desktop, Documents, Favorites, Music, and Pictures)
c. Selecting folders from Syncplicity by Axway to sync to users computer
d. Tutorial screens
With the desktop client automatically configured for users, organizations have the ability to take more files under their control, thus ensuring data security and compliance.
With Syncplicity by Axway file sync and share, productivity and data protection continue to go hand in hand. As we deliver new capabilities that expand the data protection envelope, we continue to provide end-users with a gold-standard user experience.
