LONDON, ENGLAND, January 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Workshare today announced that Workshare Protect Server was named a finalist in the 10th Annual Info Security Products Guide's Global Excellence Awards in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Security category. The prestigious, global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions in all areas of security and technology.
With more than 1.8 million professionals relying on Workshare for secure file sharing and collaboration, Workshare Protect Server extends corporate data security policies to cover attachments sent by email apps and webmail from any mobile device. This means users can work the way they want, while eliminating the risk of inadvertently leaking hidden data and metadata. In doing so, Protect Server addresses enterprise collaboration challenges by meeting both IT demands for security and user demands for mobility and simplicity.
"Today's mobile workers want to be productive on the go, and this often means sharing files using methods and devices that aren't IT sanctioned," said Anthony Foy, CEO of Workshare. "It is the enterprises' duty to ensure their IT tools strike the balance between employees' need for simplicity and ease of use, with IT's need for security. Workshare Protect Server directly addresses both requirements, and we're thrilled to be recognized by Info Security Product Guide's Global Excellence Award for our ability to empower the next-generation mobile worker, as well as the IT team that supports them."
Details about each finalist are listed at http://www.infosecurityproductsguide.com/world/. Winners will be announced on February 24th, 2014 at the 10th Annual Info Security's 2014 Global Excellence Awards Dinner.
