Aragon Research, a technology-focused, California-based research firm announced Hightail as a Hot Vendor in its soon-to-be released Mobile Content Management research report.
Cloud vendors clearly need to be more flexible when it comes to storage and access. Currently, many enterprises are not willing to put 100% of their data in the cloud, and we agree. But, as Aragon reports, the critical issue arises when someone needs to securely share content that is stored on premise, with someone that is outside of the enterprise—like a partner, custoer or vendor. Very few options exist that enable secure content sharing outside your company’s firewall—other than Hightail.
The second issue is around access. Employees do not just want to be able to access all their data at all times on any device, but once they are on that device they want to be able to easily and quickly find the file they are looking for, no matter where it is stored. With the increased amount of data repositories that are cloud-based or on-premise, employees are increasingly having issues with locating the critical file they need now.
Aragon Research strongly recommends Hightail as a vendor that enterprises must look at based on these growing content needs. Jim Lundy, Aragon founder, stated in the report, “What makes Hightail hot is that it has successfully transitioned to a full enterprise offering, combining the original ease of use of YouSendIt with solid policies for security and control that make it easier to validate compliance. This positions Hightail well for the emerging Mobile Content Management market, which is the new way forward to manage content outside of a repository.”
