Acronis joins CitrixReady WorxVerified Partner Programme
Acronis has announced that it has joined the Citrix Ready WorxVerified partner programme with the integration of its secure mobile file management software mobilEcho with Citrix MDX technology. Acronis mobilEcho will soon be made available to more than 250,000 existing Citrix enterprise customers.
Citrix MDX technology allows IT to set comprehensive policy-based controls such as data leakage prevention and the ability to remote lock, wipe and encrypt apps and data. Enterprise IT teams can then apply security and access policies to participating Worx applications, including mobilEcho, across any iOS and Android device.
“As more personal devices infiltrate enterprise environments, security becomes a top concern as IT strives to ensure critical data is safe from leakage, malware and hackers. The integration of mobilEcho with the Citrix Ready WorxVerified partner program will help IT organizations safely embrace mobile trends in the workplace while improving the security of their mobile strategy overall. This is ultimately what we all hope to achieve, and we are excited to be teaming up with Citrix with this goal in mind,” commented Anders Lofgren, Director of Mobility Solutions, Acronis.
To extend the product as enterprise ready, Acronis used the Citrix Worx SDK to easily embed MDX technology in its mobilEcho app, extending the product as a secure solution to Citrix customers using any Android or iOS based device. Citrix MDX technology allows end users to maintain direct, secure access to the mobilEcho app while enabling IT to enforce the data-security and data-access rights required by their organization. This integration will further help mobility IT managers manage the growing number of mobile apps end users are adopting for productivity and on-demand data access.
