Copiun TrustedShare for Good Is First to Provide Secure Access To SharePoint And File Servers From Smartphones And Tablets

Copiun has teamed up with Good to develop a technology that meets federally mandated data security standards in the U.S.
MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Copiun Inc., a leading innovator in secure mobile collaboration, announced today, availability of the first and only secure mobile collaboration solution that is fully integrated with the Good Dynamics™ platform and Good for Enterprise™, the industry leader in mobile device management. Copiun TrustedShare™ is the first enterprise grade solution that lets users of iPhone, iPad and Android access and share corporate documents – with direct access to Microsoft’s SharePoint® and corporate file servers. Further, Copiun TrustedShare is the only Good-compatible software in its category to be certified by Veracode, a third-party software security testing organization.

Switzerland-based InfoGuard AG, an information security and network solutions firm, has tested Copiun TrustedShare for Good in its own firm and is now a reseller. Thomas Meier, CEO of InfoGuard said, “When our executives connect personal devices to corporate email, they naturally want immediate access to documents on the same device too. But mobile devices are a weak point in the security chain that is being exploited at increasing rates. VPN-based solutions are particularly vulnerable because they expose all enterprise data to attack through mobile devices. The Copiun-Good combination is proving to be an elegant VPN-less solution, reducing the threat surface for us and for our customers.”

“Preserving the significant investments in SharePoint and file server deployments make it imperative for workers to have secure, direct access from the growing numbers of mobile devices now entering the global enterprise workforce,” said Herve Danzelaud, vice president of Business Development, Good Technology. "Copiun is helping to secure enterprise data against the very real risk of data loss through mobile devices. We're excited to be working with some of the top application providers, like Copiun, to help increase employee productivity without compromising security."

Solving BYOD Security Threats – Copiun TrustedShare for Good

Copiun TrustedShare for Good is a version of Copiun TrustedShare that is tightly integrated with Good Dynamics and Good for Enterprise, allowing corporate documents to be edited and published within Good’s secure container. Copiun TrustedShare for Good uses Good’s AES 192 encryption, resulting in a FIPS 140-2 certified solution – a federally mandated security standard in the U.S. At the same time, it is the only solution that provides direct, native access to Microsoft’s SharePoint or other file server-based environments with noVPN, firewall re-configurations or extra data stores. In addition, Copiun TrustedShare for Good gives IT administrators complete control over a mobile documents’ life cycle, as well as the app and data stored on the mobile device, which is vital for workers that interact with customers and partners, and sometimes when workers leave a company.

“Good Technology and Copiun Inc. have established a solid partnership to solve the security problems confronting enterprise organizations that are trying to tackle Bring Your Own Device challenges,” said Puneesh Chaudhry, CEO and co‐founder of Copiun. “We’re both focused on providing productivity solutions that offer device flexibility to mobile workers, with no compromises to the corporate data.”

Copiun TrustedShare for the Mobile Worker

Copiun TrustedShare offers simple, immediate collaboration that helps mobile workers increase productivity by connecting them to all the information they need to do their jobs – whether in the office or out. Key benefits for the mobile worker include:

More Access – Mobile workers can access, edit and share all types of business documents natively and securely on their personal mobile devices when and where they need them, ensuring the latest information is always at-hand. They also won’t have to be concerned with a slow or unreliable VPN connection or need to remember if they copied a file to a workspace. More Devices – Copiun TrustedShare works with the most popular smartphones and tablets in the enterprise workplace – whether corporate-issued or employee-owned, iOS or Android powered. More Document Stores – Copiun gives mobile workers secure native access to corporate documents stored anywhere -- in file shares or in SharePoint. Users can even check-in, check-out and access their own SharePoint sub-sites. Better Sharing -- Mobile workers can securely exchange documents internally and externally, capture forms and field data and publish RFPs, manuals, collateral and more – at anytime, from any device, using productivity solutions appropriate to their devices.

Copiun TrustedShare for the IT Team

Copiun TrustedShare lets IT executives say “yes” to BYOD and BYOA (Bring Your Own Apps) by helping secure, isolate and protect documents throughout their lifecycle – from access request through transfer, editing and publishing. This end-to-end governance also helps ensure complete regulatory and legal compliance. Key features for the IT Team include:

Secure VPN-less – Copiun TrustedShare provides secure VPN-less access and does not require IT to open up ports in the firewall, thereby eliminating the risks associated with hackers using consumer apps to infiltrate the corporate network. Costly and risky duplicate DMZ or cloud stores are not required either. Robust Policy Management – Copiun TrustedShare offers enterprise controls for enforcing multi-level entitlement policies according to user profiles for storing, emailing, printing and opening documents in other apps. IT administrators can even set expiration policies to limit the life of a document. Copiun provides scalable management through layered Active Directory group policies, too. Secure Document Container – Data in transit or at rest is always protected using either Good's FIPS 140-2 certified AES 192 encryption or Copiun's AES-256 encryption with the key stored inside the firewall using RSA 4096 encryption. Copiun prevents unauthorized transmission of corporate data by using a multi-factor authentication process with Active Directory credentials. Trusted App Sharing – Only apps that are authorized by an IT administrator such as Quickoffice or an internal corporate app can access data stored in Copiun’s secure document container. Loss Protection – If a device is lost or stolen, Copiun TrustedShare provides protection layers including passcode, remote corporate data wipe, and access revoke. Auditing & Reporting – Copiun’s policy and document life cycle management comes with full auditing and reporting including keyword search of files or user names.

Copiun TrustedShare for Good is available as a free download from the Apple App Store. A license must be purchased from Copiun or a reseller in order to activate the application. Users must be authorized by their Good Dynamics IT administrator.
