CloudFuze Provides Citrix ShareFile Customers With Secure Access to Files Stored in Enterprise Content Management

CloudFuze today announced that it is working with Citrix to provide Citrix ShareFile customers with access to enterprise content management systems including Alfresco, Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and EMC Documentum. Using the CloudFuze platform and the ShareFile StorageZone Connectors software development kit (SDK), customers gain the ability to seamlessly and securely connect to and manage documents with these leading Enterprise Content Management systems. The solution will be showcased at the ShareFile pod within the Citrix booth and in Citrix ShareFile breakout sessions at Citrix Synergy™ from May 6-8.

“People need to be able to securely edit files on mobile devices in order to be truly productive,” said Bill Carovano, Senior Director of Product Management, Citrix. “With CloudFuze and our new ShareFile StorageZone Connectors SDK, customers can expand the types of enterprise content that users can access and edit from ShareFile on the go. Users can access and edit Office documents stored in Documentum or annotate PDFs stored in Alfresco from an iPad.”

For CloudFuze, the relationship with Citrix is part of CloudFuze’s growing role in the evolution of cloud collaboration. CloudFuze supports integration with public, private and hybrid storage clouds and also enterprise content management systems within the corporate network. The rise of new cloud storage options offers the potential for significant benefits including cost reduction, increased work mobility and collaboration, but it also adds file management complexity. Historically, file management was easy with local storage. The emerging cloud-based storage environment adds a complex set of management, integration and security issues that must be addressed. CloudFuze aims to provide end users, developers and enterprises with a single platform that enables them to seamlessly access, share, manage and collaborate across changing file storage environments.

“We are excited to offer integration of the CloudFuze platform with the Citrix ShareFile software development kit (SDK),” said Ravi Poli, CEO of CloudFuze. “We also look forward to helping ShareFile customers gain broader access to their enterprise content. Further, this relationship demonstrates our commitment to helping customers benefit from new cloud and content management technologies.”
