HELIOS Document Hub offers private-cloud file sharing for mobile users

HELIOS Document Hub allows businesses to conveniently and securely share documents to iPhone and iPad users. Remote document access and file synchronization, along with document previews, and Spotlight search, make server files readily available to mobile users.

Hannover, Germany, March 22, 2016 – HELIOS Software today released HELIOS Document Hub 2.0, which allows companies to securely share intranet file server volumes to mobile users. Remote users will enjoy the ease with which they can use their iPhones and iPads to access documents residing on the company file server. Administrators will appreciate the enterprise grade security and access controls protecting these company assets.

HELIOS Document Hub is a mobile app that connects to the HELIOS WebShare web portal running on a company’s file server. With Document Hub, remote iOS users can browse and preview server files. Documents can be downloaded to Document Hub for offline use, and opened in other applications. Photos and documents created or edited on the mobile device can be uploaded to the server. Server files can quickly be found via the Spotlight search system, browsed in list mode, or via the convenient gallery view with zoomable document previews. File synchronization copies specified server files and folders to Document Hub for offline use.

WebShare runs on a company’s file server to enable it as a “private-cloud” web portal. Multi-user support is built-in by design, server file permissions are enforced, and user authentication is fully compatible with enterprise directory services.

Helmut Tschemernjak, CEO of HELIOS, notes that “WebShare and Document Hub make integration of mobile users into corporate networks easy yet secure.” He adds, “the versatility and ease of use facilitates collaboration, and the syncing system allows automatically publishing manuals, marketing materials, and daily reports to users in the field.”

Unique benefits of the HELIOS Document Hub 2.0 solution:

  • Multi-user secure access to intranet server volumes
  • Private cloud  – no additional data copies on third-party servers
  • Server defined synchronization brings devices quickly up to date
  • Gallery image previews – ICC color optimized
  • Spotlight search – mobile devices find server files quickly
  • Enterprise grade security – enforces intranet users and permissions
  • Integrates with existing file server solutions

HELIOS WebShare and Document Hub are ideal for businesses of any size. Complete product details can be found on the HELIOS website.
