File Sync & Migration
Give users simple, secure access to their files from any device with AppSense
Today’s user requires ubiquitous file access and reliable file synchronization. But every approach has trade-offs:
- File servers and other traditional on-premises storage options are difficult to access outside of the corporate network, offline, or from non-Windows devices.
- Cloud file synchronization services are inexpensive and readily available, but they introduce new security, compliance, and IT management challenges.
On-premises storage infrastructure is often too unwieldly for users, and cloud storage options introduce new cost and risk. AppSense delivers the best of both:
On-Premises Storage Access
Users are cut off from file servers and existing on-premises storage investments by VPN headaches, device incompatibility, and unreliable Microsoft Offline Files functionality.
File access across Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and the web looks and feels just like a consumer cloud service, even when existing on-premises file servers are in use.
Security & Compliance
Users turn to consumer cloud services and other “shadow IT” methods for file access and synchronization needs, introducing data leakage and compliance challenges.
IT has complete control over where files are stored and can define granular policies to govern how files are accessed and retained.
User Recovery & Migration
Users must change file management and backup behaviors, and IT teams face significant challenges and manual effort every time a user must be migrated or recovered.
Users can work the same way they always have, and file migration and recovery is fully automated.
