Mobile security advancements from Accellion

Accellion has boosted it enterprise-class security features by including two-factor authentication (2FA). The kiteworks 2FA can be configured per user profile, enabling administrators to determine if all standard users must use 2FA, or just restricted users. Alternatively, administrators can create custom user profiles to enforce 2FA.

The kiteworks security capabilities include:

  • secure mobile container—ensures the security and compliance of all content stored locally on a mobile device;
  • secure integrated mobile editor—enables users to securely open, edit and create MS Office files, and annotate PDFs without having to use unsecure third-party editors, and allows users to create, edit and annotate all within the kiteworks secure mobile container;
  • selective remote wipe—wipes enterprise content saved in the secure mobile container when a device is lost or stolen;
  • whitelist helper apps—centrally manage and control which applications are allowed to open files within the kiteworks mobile app and prevent users from opening files using unsecure consumer apps; and
  • PIN access—configure offline PIN settings with full administrative control for accessing files in the secure mobile container.

Additionally, the new kiteworks full content search capability enables users to quickly find relevant content searching and filtering any content stored within kiteworks. Users can filter content based on file/folder name, author, date/time, file type and size. Further, the kiteworks custom branding capabilities allow organizations to customize the look and feel of the kiteworks solution to make consistent with corporate branding and identity.
