Bitzer Redefines Mobile File Access to Corporate Intranet

Bitzer m/Drive Enables Direct Mobile Access to Windows File Servers, Eliminating Cloud Security Risks

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- Bitzer Mobile Inc., a technology leader in secure enterprise mobility, today announced the launch of m/Drive, an enterprise grade mobile app that enables secure direct access to corporate Intranet files from mobile devices. Bitzer m/Drive is designed for enterprises to provide secure, authenticated access to Windows Network Intranet files from employee mobile devices, without the requirement of cloud-sync applications. For more information and an online demonstration, please visit www.bitzermobile.com/mDrive

Today's mobile employees are demanding access to corporate Intranet resources and data from their personal phones and tablets to increase productivity. Savvy employees bypass the traditional network perimeter by using cloud-based file sharing applications on laptop, desktop and mobile devices, which frequently sync data to cloud services that are not under enterprise IT control, and pose potential liability and risk for enterprises.

Enterprise IT prefers that mobile employees access Intranet files directly from existing Windows file servers that have been provisioned by IT with role based access control. However, this direct access from mobile devices is not possible today because mobile devices cannot log-in to the Windows Network without compromising network security using constrained delegation. Bitzer's patent pending technology enables smartphones and tablets to log into a Windows Network and access corporate file shares without compromising security by using true Kerberos SSO. Bitzer m/Drive provides seamless browsing and transfer of Intranet files, as if employees were navigating using a local Windows drive. In addition, it is available at a fraction of the cost for an enterprise license of popular cloud-based file syncing products.

"The typical end user has three or more endpoint devices and they want to access their corporate data from all of them. But corporate data often lives on file servers or NAS devices locked behind a VPN. While some companies are putting data into the cloud to solve the access issue, there are terabytes of data sitting within an enterprise that is not moving to a cloud anytime soon," said Terri McClure, Senior Analyst at ESG. "Bitzer has found a unique approach to enable end users to have safe, authenticated access to data while encrypting data-at-rest, in-transit and in-use. This addresses the security needs of security-minded companies and user experience sought by the employees."

Bitzer m/Drive offers following features and capabilities:

  • Ability to access Intranet file servers from mobile devices using true Windows network login
  • Ability to upload and download files, creation and deletion of folders on the share
  • Ability to share a file using the integrated e-mail client as well as a built in editor for Microsoft PowerPoint, Excel and Word documents
  • Integration with existing Windows authentication back-end using Active Directory for role-based access
  • Out of the box integration with Bitzer's BEAM platform, which includes e-mail, calendar, contacts, and a secure browser to the enterprise intranet
  • Fine-grained policy based access control for a secure workspace; easy enforcement of data governance such as sharing, clipboard control, geo-fencing and time-based restriction
  • Integrated app-tunnel for authorized access to Intranet, which eliminates need for wide-open VPN connectivity

Bitzer m/Drive is available immediately for corporate IT users. Enterprise pricing for m/Drive starts at $7 per user per month; which includes Bitzer Secure container and secure remote access to corporate intranet. Please contact Bitzer to set up a demo.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
