Secure Collaboration

Secure Universal Access to Enterprise Content

The kiteworks solution extends the value of existing content systems by enabling VPN-less mobile access and secure external sharing of enterprise content. Users can link content from multiple data stores in a single kiteworks folder, which can then be shared securely with external users. Documents of record are always maintained in the source system, along with a complete audit trail. With kiteworks, end users get a single universal point of access for working with all enterprise content regardless of where it resides. Popular content sources supported include:

  • Microsoft SharePoint 2007, 2010 and 2013
  • Microsoft SharePoint Online
  • Windows File Shares (CIFS and DFS)
  • Documentum 6.6, 6.7 and 7
  • OpenText Content Server 10 and Livelink 9.7.1

Document and Project Collaboration 

kiteworks allows teams to streamline workflows by allowing internal and external stakeholders to manage tasks, organise content, as well as comment, add new versions, lock/unlock, update, synchronize, share, and send files. Users can create sub-folders and manage permissions by assigning individuals or members of an LDAP group as a Manager, Collaborator, Viewer, or Downloader.

Enterprise File Synchronization 

To help meet the demands of today’s 24/7 business environment, the kiteworks solution enables users to have secure access to the latest material for team collaboration, from any device wherever. kiteworks provides enterprise organisations with secure, managed, and flexible file synchronization along with the IT controls, management and security that enterprises require.

With kiteworks file synchronization, users can quickly, easily, and securely access the latest information across mobile, web, and desktop using continuous and on-demand sync. All files placed in a user’s My Folder are continuously synchronized; and all files placed in sync-enabled shared folders are synchronized via on-demand or scheduled sync. Files are synchronized via the kiteworks secure cloud to ensure that users have access to their Enterprise content, online and offline, across devices from wherever. 

Using kiteworks file sync, business users can quickly access the latest presentations, spreadsheets, financial documents, and product specifications across all devices to increase business productivity. Users can synchronize any file type, ensuring that documents are securely available when and where needed.
