One App Does It All – Citrix ShareFile Now Includes Mobile Content Editing
Create, Sync, Share and Now Edit Documents Securely from ShareFile Apps for
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- March 19, 2013
Citrix today announced the availability of rich content editing capabilities
within Citrix ShareFile™ apps for mobile devices. Now, users can meet their
mobility, productivity and collaboration needs from a single, intuitive app
for iPad and/or iPhone (support for other devices coming soon). In addition to
secure sync and sharing capabilities, the new apps will provide users with the
ability to edit Microsoft® Office documents and annotate Adobe PDFs, enhancing
productivity on the go, even when offline.
“People want to be able to create or open a document, easily edit it and save
or share it – all from one app on their mobile device,” said Terri McClure,
Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Today, they are often putting
corporate data at risk by using third party document viewing and editing tools
that create an unsecured copy of their files on the mobile devices. With an
easy-to-use, integrated and company-sanctioned option like Citrix ShareFile,
data stays in the secure file sharing environment and under IT’s control.”
*Boost user productivity with rich content editing on mobile devices. Users
can create, review and edit Microsoft Office documents within the
ShareFile app and edit them with similar tools that are available from
their desktop Office applications including: edit text, track changes,
spell check, print, highlight, insert and present in slideshow mode. Users
can also annotate Adobe PDF files within ShareFile and leverage all
editing and annotation capabilities even when offline. In addition to
providing an intuitive experience, the apps ensure that users do not have
to purchase, download and rely on separate editors to get their work done
on mobile devices.
*Improve data security on mobile devices by enabling users to leverage a
built-in editor. IT can then restrict the use of third-party editors that
employees may be using, and thereby prevent employees from storing copies
of sensitive data within those apps. This capability – along with remote
wipe, encryption, passcode lock and poison pill features – ensures that IT
can secure corporate content on mobile devices.
*Retain folder and sub folder structure on mobile devices with the ability
to mark entire folders in addition to individual files for offline access
on mobile devices. The feature will keep all files in the offline folder
in-sync with any changes made to the folder, including updates to files
within the folder, changes to the structure of sub-folders and addition of
new files. This feature allows users to stay connected to all updated
content even when offline.
“We continue to see strong customer adoption of Citrix ShareFile for iOS, with
downloads doubling each quarter,” said Jesse Lipson, VP & GM, Data Sharing,
Citrix. “Delivering native document editing capabilities is a natural next
step in the evolution of the product, complementing our current features to
create a more intuitive and delightful user experience. ShareFile is ideal for
enterprises who are looking for an integrated, easy-to-use data editing and
sharing solution that meets IT’s mandate for security.”
Offline access to entire folders is available immediately from the App Store.
Document editing is available today to enterprise customers upon request.
