KineticD, a provider of cloud-based backup and data recovery services for small and mid-sized businesses, announced that customers of its KineticCloud Backup Suite can now use Android smartphones and iOS devices to securely access corporate data files and applications from any location.
The vendor says a recent survey by research firm Gartner Inc. shows that 70% of respondents indicated they have, or are planning to have, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies that allow employees to use personal mobile devices to connect to enterprise data within the next 12 months.
As this trend continues to grow, KineticD says, enterprises and SMBs alike are finding it increasingly more important to deliver secure, remote access to company data.
With KineticMobile, the company’s newest addition to its KineticCloud offering, remote workers have the ability to quickly and easily share files and upload and instantly download critical business data using their mobile devices. And business and IT executives will be able to remotely manage corporate cloud data in the event their organizations’’ systems become unavailable.
"The continued adoption of BYOD has both large organizations and SMBs looking for solutions that provide employees with an easy, secure way to access cloud data," Jamie Brenzel , CEO of KineticD, said in a statement. "KineticMobile elevates BYOD devices to justified business productivity tools, putting the full power of the office computer into the hands of workers—wherever their business takes them."
KineticMobile is available immediately at no additional charge when companies activate an account with KineticD.
