This solution enables organizations to securely share and collaborate on files in the cloud with colleagues, customers and business partners while maintaining visibility to, and governance of, content from within Autonomy WorkSite.
New file sharing services have made it easy for consumers to access and synchronize their content at any time, from anywhere and on any device; the expectation has grown among employees that they should find the same user experience in the workplace.
Corporate users face challenges when sharing large files with coworkers, customers and partners. Document collaboration by email creates version-control confusion, causes strain on servers and increases storage costs. This wastes time, stifles collaboration and often prompts organizations to restrict sending files via email.
Consumer file sharing services offer an easy-to-use alternative, but create another silo of content, disconnected from the internal content management infrastructure. This presents significant challenges to properly securing and governing information in the cloud, exposing companies to increased risk, rendering these services largely unsuitable for the enterprise environment.
Autonomy LinkSite combines an enterprise-grade document and email management system with the ease of use and simplicity of a consumer solution. It provides the enterprise with a single, integrated, user-friendly tool for external file sharing and collaboration. Autonomy LinkSite enables a single file or an entire project folder to be shared in the cloud with internal and external collaborators, directly from the Autonomy WorkSite application. Benefits include:
Team collaboration beyond the firewall: Autonomy LinkSite extends the traditional workspace context from Autonomy WorkSite into the cloud. This enables users to share files securely and collaborate with individuals both inside and outside the firewall. Files may be password protected and set to expire in a specified timeframe, enhancing content security.;
Single point of access: Autonomy WorkSite users have access to all their files, whether stored within the enterprise content management system or shared externally, through a single interface. This allows them to view, edit, share and search both cloud-based and on-premises content from one place, helping them save time and improve productivity.;
Full device synchronization: Files shared via Autonomy LinkSite are synchronized across all employee devices, and can be accessed through any web browser, letting users work how and when they need to.
