Though the adoption of cloud computing and other solutions that help implement the idea of remotely data access leads to improved job flexibility, it comes with its own setbacks, the greatest of which is security.
In what is definitely a move to improve on the ease of using such systems while enforcing superior security, OpenText announced its new tools that will help in social collaboration and sharing of information securely, whether it’s on the OpenText’s cloud offering or on-premises deployments.
The tools comprise Tempo Box (News - Alert), which allows users to share, synchronize and store information across their devices and Tempo Social for social collaboration with enterprise-grade security, compliance and customization functionality.
With Tempo Box, employees can manipulate critical company information on the go, while adhering to company policies and general industry regulations. It works to complement on-premises solutions, specifically the Tempo Box Express and Tempo Box Content Server Edition, enabling organizations to control its entire content repository when need there be.
According to the senior VP of research at OpenText, Muhi Majzoub, Tempo Social merges seamlessly with Tempo Box to deliver a secure and foolproof file sharing and synchronizing system. In his opinion, this interactive platform allows customers to realize their full enterprise value through social technology.
By subscribing to services from OpenText’s collection of Tempo products, you open a world of improved collaboration, access to collective intelligence, collaborative working environments, secure file sharing and synchronization, intuitive Web interfaces and so much more.
Chief information officer at OpenText, Steve Hunt, acknowledges the fact that though users are embracing the idea of sharing and synchronizing information across devices, security remains a significant hindrance to coming aboard, and a menace to those who have already adopted the technology.
OpenText’s new tools will no doubt hamper this issue, which has always has controlled the way in which enterprises adopt cloud computing and data sharing and syncing. As part of eating its own dog food, the company’s internal deployment of Tempo Social recorded an impressive 1,000 unique profile registrations worldwide.
