June 2, 2012 Leave a comment
Earlier this week, Azurati launched SharePoint2Go, a new cross-platform mobile SharePoint solution that allows mobile enterprise users to access Microsoft SharePoint securely on any smartphone or tablet.
Here are some of the key features of SharePoint2Go:
BYOD-ready (Bring your own device) and cross-platform support
Business users increasingly have an expectation that they will be able to bring devices that they purchase and use in their private lives in to the workplace and expect to be able to connect with enterprise applications, like corporate email, CRM and their SharePoint environment.
Whether your business has a Bring your own Device policy or a multiple mobile platform and device policy, SharePoint2Go is ready to provide access to your corporate SharePoint environment on any mobile device (and Apple Mac computers).

Concern over mobile security is the number one concern cited by CIOs and the main factor that is preventing the deployment of mobile applications for enterprise use. That is why Azurati has made mobile security a cornerstone of its enterprise mobile proposition. SharePoint2Go offers multiple authentication options (from 2-factor and SAML tokens, to forms and basic authentication). Additionally, the SharePoint2Go mobile environment is protected by 256-bit encryption and a zero footprint policy, meaning that no residual content or data is left on the mobile device, so that information security cannot be compromised if the device is misplaced or stolen.

Mobile optimized user experience
SharePoint2Go automatically renders the user interface design so that it is optimized for the smartphone or tablet being used, making sure that the mobile SharePoint user experience is consistent across different platforms and form factors.
Branding and customization
SharePoint2Go enterprise edition customers are able to brand and customize the SharePoint2Go interface – a small feature that can have a big impact on brand communications, particularly for customer-facing staff.
V-Parts™: support for custom SharePoint Web Parts
Many SharePoint environments include custom developed WebParts, or apps that provide views or access to other information, data and content sources, like:
- Company staff contact directory
- CRM pipleline
- Management reports
- ERP (SAP, Oracle or Dynamics) financial data
SharePoint2Go is unique in that it allows custom developed SharePoint WebParts to be converted in to mobile viewable V-Parts™ so that they can be accessed by mobile users via SharePoint2Go on any smartphone or tablet.
Central user management
Managing hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of users with SharePoint2Go is painless through the solution’s central user management and administration console.
Mobile user administrators can manage and administer user accounts from their mobile device or from a standard desktop browser. Deploying SharePoint2Go can also be conducted easily by central admistrators.
