IBM Connections Adds Secure File Sync and Share Offering On-premises

View Comments
Following the release last quarter of our secure file sync and share offering in cloud, today we have just released the equivalent offering for those customers who would like to deploy this on premises. This new offering gives customers a new way to buy IBM Connections and get just the Files portion of the platform. This makes it easy to get started and customers can grow and buy the entire IBM Connections suite once they are ready to use other capabilities such as Communities, Forums, Ideation, etc.

The capabilities have already been highly praised by analysts such as Forrester and OVUM. In fact, check out this report from OVUM to find out why IBM Connections is a strong candidate to provide all the benefits and features an enterprise user might need from a file sync and share solution.

This offering includes:
  • Mobile apps for iOS and Android
  • Desktop plugins for Microsoft Windows and Mac (including integration into Microsoft Office 365 Desktop apps such as Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and Excel)
  • External file sharing (ie. share files with people outside of your organization)
  • Share files with individuals or groups
  • Lock files for editing to prevent conflicts
  • View files online without having to download
  • Control who can view/edit your files and who can re-share them 
  • View who has downloaded your files and which version they have
  • See how the file has been shared throughout your organization
  • and more... ! 
Available add-ons:
  • Compliance and Governance support 
  • Real-time co-editing of files without downloading 
Here's a demo of the plugins and mobile apps in action:
