According to an Ovum Ltd. report published today, “AirWatch Secure Content Locker currently merits the title of ‘best-in-show’ in terms of features that matter to users of computers and mobile devices.” The research firm has named Secure Content Locker a leader in its latest report, the “Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting an Enterprise File Sync and Share product.”
The report is Ovum’s first to focus on the enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) market. In the report, Ovum assesses the top 19 vendors based on execution, technology and market impact to help inform potential buyers about the most viable EFSS solutions on the market. AirWatch was named one of six leaders and scored highest overall in Ovum’s technology assessment. Criteria included file synchronization, file sharing, collaboration, content management, search, social, desktop and mobile features.
Secure Content Locker earned a leadership position for its “best-in-show” end-user functionality, advanced search capabilities and the ability to easily extend access to third-party enterprise content management systems such as SharePoint. Secure Content Locker integrates with more than 30 enterprise file repositories.
According to Ovum, which recently merged with Informa Telecoms & Media, the decision to produce the report was catalyzed by the findings of a prior global study. In the study, the research firm found that 89 percent of employees who use file sync and share technology at work are using at least one consumer product, and nearly a third are using three or more consumer products.
Moreover, only 9 percent of users are satisfied with a single commercial product. According to Ovum, “These figures paint an anarchic picture of file sharing and document-centric collaboration within the workplace, and support Ovum’s thesis that while there may be an enterprise file sync and share solution to address almost every business need, there is no product that meets them all.”
By integrating with and extending existing EFSS solutions to mobile, AirWatch Secure Content Locker is poised to become the leading mobile solution in the space, backed by the strength of a comprehensive enterprise mobility management platform.
