MobilEcho gives iPads direct access to file servers access

Monday, May 23, 2011

Today, Group Logic launched mobilEcho, which is server software and an iPad app that gives iPads access to an organization's existing file servers, without the use of iTunes or cloud providers.

iPads connect directly to an enterprise's server through a firewall via virtual private network (VPN) or secure https. iPad users can then browse a file server, preview, download, and upload files, and create new files and folders on the server. iPad users can also search the server for files.

File access can be managed by existing Active Directory permissions, and administrators can use policy enforcement to enable/disable users' abilities to email files, store files online, and view files with third-party applications. File transmissions can be encrypted, and administrators can remotely wipe mobilEcho configuration and files in the case that an iPad is lost or stolen.

mobilEcho enables administrators to centrally manage file server access to enterprise-owned and employee-owned iPads. The first time an iPad user runs the mobilEcho app, it configures itself by talking with the mobilEcho server. Group Logic said that the server can be deployed in 10 minutes.

Group Logic is offering a subscription-based pricing option and a perpetual licensing option. A free demo copy is available.

If you've tried mobilEcho what you think of it.
