Novell solution enhancements continue to advance the market on secure and productive file sharing, storage, and management.
Novell® today announced several solution upgrades focused on file management and collaboration to address enterprise customers' need for a secure, productive sharing environment. As organizations become more mobile, social and global, the ever-growing inventory of data requires a sophisticated file infrastructure in order to securely store, share, and manage it all. With over 30 years of expertise in file and networking, Novell is helping companies meet these market demands with updated versions of three trusted solutions: Novell Filr 1.1, Novell File Reporter 2.5 and Novell Storage Manager 4.0.
A recent Forrester report outlined the drivers for secure file sharing and collaboration in the enterprise, stating, "Today, 97% of information workers regularly communicate or collaborate with others in their company as a part of their day-to-day job; 76% say the same when it comes to contact with customers or clients, and 64% do so with suppliers, vendors, and partners. Such activities are—and always have been—the backbone of doing business. But the security stakes increase as teams, customers, and business partners are more dispersed and more is done online and in digital formats such as signing contracts and submitting/transmitting sensitive information. 1"
Novell provides the core file, print, and networking services that are fundamental to any organization. Enterprise mobility has created an ever-present need to keep employees productive in and out of the office, while ensuring the security of sensitive data and documents. Novell is focused on delivering solutions that keep businesses a step ahead of security concerns, while leveraging existing IT assets instead of investing in third-party cloud solutions. Mobility is critical, and just as important is the need to protect organizations from the risks associated with sharing information between users, businesses, and applications.
"We wanted to make it easier for users to access files on our existing storage systems, regardless of whether they're researching at the library or working at the hospital. At the same time, we did not want to compromise on security or manageability," said Edmund Weber, Head of Collaboration & Mobile Solutions at the Computer Center, University of Regensburg. "Novell Filr provides users with access to files from any location and device, while working with ITs existing security policies and encrypted connections. We're confident that our data is protected, and pleased with our mobile work capabilities."
"Our commitment is to deliver the solutions our customers need to drive their businesses forward, with the peace of mind that they are protected" said Eric Varness, Novell Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. "At Novell we've dedicated our resources and invested in the development of functional, secure and productivity-enhancing solutions. We provide technology that works with existing infrastructure to turn the challenges of data and file management into the opportunity to enable a truly mobile and secure workplace."
