Ok, Citrix has now also released an updated version of the ShareFile app for Android to incorporate the new security features there as well!

NICE!!!! 😀

Read the Citrix blog post below for more info and source link!

I’m pleased to announce the new version of the ShareFile application for Android tablets and phones. ShareFile for Android enables secure mobile work styles by providing users with a rich follow-me-data experience while offering IT the management and control needed to ensure sensitive corporate data is secure at all times. By 2020, the workplace will evolve to the point where there will be 7 desks for every 10 office workers, with each person accessing their company’s IT network from an average of 6 different devices.

According to a new report from Forrester, an estimated 258 million workers around the world choose their own laptops and 129 million buy their own smartphones. Currently 37% of all BYOD smartphones run on Google’s Android platform. The Citrix mobile application suite balances connectivity and personal freedom, allowing employees to access everything they need to securely conduct business regardless of whether they are working from home or on the road.

New Features

Pin Passcode

Jail Break Detection

Gives users easier access to their data instead of having to type their password every time they start the application. Allows administrators to prevent their users from accessing their ShareFile data from jail broken devices.

Another security feature added to this release is local device encryption for improved security of sensitive data.

Citrix leads the way with the new ShareFile app for Windows 8

Users are excited about tablets and the market is growing rapidly. With Windows 8, Microsoft is providing a great tablet OS as well as their own hardware in the Microsoft Surface RT and Surface Pro. This article from CIO indicates that a Forrester survey showed that 32% of users want their next work tablet to run Windows.

Citrix is bringing easy file sharing to the latest version of Windows. If you are one of those users looking to get a tablet running Windows 8 or if you have a laptop/desktop running Windows 8, we now have multiple ways to leverage ShareFile on Windows 8 with the introduction of the new ShareFile app in the Windows Store. This app provides a full-screen experience on Windows 8 for accessing ShareFile and integrates directly with the new Windows 8 charm bar for OS-level integration with the Search, Share, and Settings charms. Of course, we included support for the great device security features like remote wipe and users can login with their AD credentials. The app also supports these great features:

  • Browse your account
  • Download and view documents
  • Request and send files via email
  • Transfer big files
  • Add users to folders on your ShareFile account
  • Offline access to view downloaded files
  • For Enterprise accounts, users will be able to access their data using their corporate credentials
  • IT administrators will be able to control and audit access

Check out a video of the app in action on YouTube. More details…
