Latest version delivers next-gen private cloud computing platform and new capabilities in mobile support and security
Infrastructure software company Autonomy has introduced the latest version of its flagship document management offering, WorkSite version 9.0.
The company said the new version delivers next-generation private cloud computing platform and new capabilities in mobile support and security, to enable users with on-demand secured access to matter content from anywhere at any time on any mobile devices.
The WorkSite is built on Autonomy’s ‘Meaning Based Computing’ technology and provides a shared environment for storing business content and a system for tracking updates, milestones, and communications. The electronic and paper documents and other media are consolidated in a central library, making them easier to find, share, and reuse, said the company.
With WorkSite 9 users can access the same content inside or outside the office through a platform and device of their choice and can telecommute with a broadband connection or even if they are limited to access via a mobile device, added Autonomy.
WorkSite 9 also allows customers to assign certain types of content within the store as "sensitive" and this sensitive content is automatically encrypted by the WorkSite platform to protect sensitive customer data from cyber attacks, said the company.
Autonomy said that WorkSite 9 delivers the next-generation cloud computing platform. With the next- generation cloud computing platform, customers can have their own private cloud or leverage Autonomy’s cloud services for document management, scanning and workflow. Customers can access the services via traditional desktop clients (thick clients), Web-based interfaces (thin clients) or via a mobile device (micro clients) with the help of the new WorkSite 9 platform.
Autonomy Protect CEO Neil Araujo said with the increased use of mobile devices in today’s business environment, email usage has gone up, but the need to capture and manage email and keep information up-to-date remains.
"The latest release of WorkSite 9 significantly enhances workers’ productivity and responsiveness to customers’ needs by allowing secured access to the repository from the latest preferred user devices," said Araujo.
