The interchangeable use of personal and business email accounts is a major data concern, but Colligo hopes to bridge the divide between employees and IT departments through more secure, cross-device email management and data synchronization.
Colligo on Tuesday announced several major updates to its mobile content platform, Colligo Engage, which includes three new specialized apps for Colligo Engage users: Email Manager for iOS, Briefcase for Android and Email Manager for Outlook.
Briefcase for Android is an online and offline document management tool for SharePoint and Office 365, while Email Manager for Outlook enhances Colligo’s Sharepoint and Office 365 integration with better scalability. Colligo claims Email Manager for iOS is the first native iOS application that enables email filing and classification on SharePoint and Office 365.
Colligo says the three new Colligo apps, currently in Beta testing, provide a solution to the challenges of business security presented by Io, and were created to integrate with the same devices employees use every day, while also still providing Enterprise-level risk management, compliance, and data loss prevention.
Barry Jinks, President and CEO of Colligo, says employees look to apps to access data from any device, "but along with that comes heightened security and governance concerns that are creating unprecedented challenges for IT.” The apps are managed and secured in the cloud on the Colligo Console platform, which is itself built on Microsoft Azure.Colligo also announced several updates to Colligo Console today, which now includes single sign-on support and the ability to create and manage user groups.
