Acronis launched today its latest file and print sharing solution for SMBs and enterprises called Acronis Access Connect. Formerly ExtremeZ-IP, this new solution aims to integrate Macs into businesses and enterprises.
With this new release, Acronis Access Connect adds broad support for mobile workers to securely access files using iOS, Android, and Windows phones and tablets. This combined support across the range of PC, Mac and mobile platforms lets employees keep using the devices they love, while enabling IT departments to deliver a seamless, scalable, and problem-free file server access and print sharing experience for users.
Mobile workers and road warriors can now access their work files wherever they need them, using the Access Connect mobile clients for iOS, Android and Windows mobile devices. Minimal or no end user training is required for mobile users, especially those familiar with Mac and Windows file sharing environments.
For IT managers and professionals, Acronis Access Connect eliminates SMB protocol bugs, performance issues and compatibility problems related to integrating Macs into Windows environments, reducing help desk calls by as much as 70 percent.
Acronis Access Connect also installs in a matter of minutes on Windows servers, delivering immediate time-to-value for IT administrators and support personnel. This allows employees to be more productive when working with files on their PCs, Macs and mobile devices - whenever and wherever they choose.
