NTP Software Provides Organizations with Secure Control of All File Data with Introduction of Universal File Access
End-to-end solution enhances protection of business-critical information in today’s increasingly BYOD environments
Unlike consumer-oriented “sync and share” products that are currently on the market today, NTP Software UFA is an end-to-end enterprise solution that provides corporate end users the ability to create and interact safely and securely with an organization’s file data using any device from any Internet or cell phone-enabled location. This ensures that any intellectual property generated by employees is fully secured and treated the same whether it originates in the office, at home or on the road.
“Today’s increasingly mobile workforce has created an entirely new set of challenges for IT regarding the availability, accessibility and security of corporate data,” said
NTP Software is the only vendor that has extensions in the OS and file systems of Windows, NetApp, EMC and HDS. UFA transports any data created remotely to these primary storage hosts within an organization’s data center using the cloud as a transport and caching mechanism but not as a data store, unless specified. Working with its other technologies, NTP Software is able to unify storage across vendors and platforms simplifying management and providing access of all corporate data to end users.
Key components of UFA include:
- Cloud Connector – one or more services that maintain a connection between internal storage hosts and the BYOD Manager. It integrates with Windows Active Directory and provides control over limits on size, quantity and type of file data
- BYOD Manager – one or more services that offers connections to end-user devices. It provides flexible caching options, proxies Active Directory security and aggregates communications
- BYOD Suite - client software appropriate for all common devices and operating systems. It provides end users with the ability to immediately upload and delete file data, and allows for lost or stolen devices to be shut down and wiped of business-critical information
“The days of IT departments controlling how and from where end users access corporate data have long passed – we are now in a BYOD universe,” said
