Vaultize Introduces Enterprise Wipe to Its Mobility and File Sharing Platform

Enterprise File Sharing and Sync (EFSS) and Mobility vendor Vaultize strengthens its BYOD strategy by introducing Enterprise Wipe into its platform. Enterprise wipe is a security feature that reduces business risk by selectively erasing only enterprise-controlled data without affecting the personal content.

Mountain View, CA, August 01, 2013 --( Enterprise file sharing and sync (EFSS) and mobility vendor Vaultize today announced the availability of “Enterprise Wipe” feature to help businesses reduce data loss risk.

As enterprises start to leverage the increasing consumerization of mobile devices and adopt BYOD strategy to maximize corporate profitability, enterprise IT is facing multiple challenges with the ownership and protection of corporate information assets. Vaultize’s Enterprise Wiping helps IT reduce the risk of data loss by remotely wiping the data when a device (laptop/smartphone/tablet) is lost or an employee leaves the organization. The wiping is forensically-sound and compliant with US-DoD standards to help prevent any forensic recovery.

“The legal and financial risks for compromised data make data wiping technology a serious consideration for any organization whose employees carry sensitive data on their devices. For enterprise IT, the responsibility of data loss prevention comes with accountability as well. It is important that IT remotely wipes only the work data, leaving the personal data intact,” said Sebastian Joseph, Chief Technology Officer, DDB Mudra Group – part of the DDB Worldwide Communications - a leading marketing communications network worldwide.

“Unlike conventional remote wipe, which is heavy handed, that can potentially wipe out personal data as well, Vaultize selectively wipes only enterprise-controlled data based on corporate policies and without affecting the personal content – thus reducing the risk of negative consequences of erroneous wipe and privacy concerns,” said Anand Kekre, CEO and Co-founder of Vaultize.

About Vaultize:

Vaultize is a privately held company headquartered in Pune, India. It is funded by Tata Capital Innovations Fund. Vaultize has presence in more than 30 countries – including the US and Europe, through its channel network consisting of resellers, distributors, system integrators and MSPs.

Cloud-based file sharing and sync services have revolutionized the way people access and share information. People are freely using these services even for their official work, and hence sensitive corporate data is now residing in third-party clouds without the knowledge and control of IT — posing significant data loss, security and compliance risks. Vaultize comes to your rescue by giving a unified platform for file sharing, sync, endpoint backup, endpoint encryption, anywhere/anytime access to data on corporate file servers and enterprise mobility— everything with complete enterprise control and visibility.

Through Vaultize’s endpoint encryption, sensitive corporate information remains encrypted on endpoints ensuring protection against unauthorized access and potential data leakage from lost or stolen device. In addition to on-disk protection, Vaultize’s patent pending encryption technology used in file sharing and backup ensures that the data is encrypted or decrypted only on endpoints – guaranteeing end-to-end protection.
