- As WPC starts, Azurati puts the spotlight on mobile 'BYOD' SharePoint
Milton Keynes, UK 5th July 2012 - Azurati has today announced that two of the UK's leading Microsoft SharePoint Systems Integrators, Content & Code and Kynetix, have officially become partners and will be providing Azurati's secure mobile BYOD solutions to enterprise customers. This follows the recent launch of SharePoint2Go™, a cloud-based service that Azurati claims is the first to make mobile Microsoft SharePoint access truly simple and secure on any smartphone or tablet.
The announcement coincides with the annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), this year being held between 8-11 June in Toronto. Azurati will be attending the event.
"Ensuring that our mobile enterprise products are easily available through a select network of expert partners in the US and Europe is a top priority for 2012. We are delighted to start with two world-class partners and are actively developing similar relationships with other companies worldwide," says Ronan Lavelle, CEO, Azurati.
Both new partners bring their own specialities. Content & Code is widely recognised as being one of the UK's leading providers of SharePoint solutions and is a previous two-time Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year. Established 20 years, Kynetix specialises in the financial services market.
Says Tim Wallis, CEO of Content & Code, "We've worked with the Azurati management team in previous ventures and know that they understand what the huge install base of SharePoint users really need. Mobility and security are imperatives for enterprises considering BYOD initiatives and mobility strategies, and with SharePoint2Go, Azurati is fulfilling that need."
Says Paul Smyth, Kynetix, "We work for some of the leading names in the financial services market who have high expectations and look for robust, mission-critical solutions that are at the cutting edge of technology. Azurati SharePoint2Go is a perfect fit and we have a lot of confidence in Azurati's future roadmap."
Built on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, SharePoint2Go is designed to address the barriers or concerns that the 65,000+ organisations worldwide that have deployed Microsoft SharePoint may have about addressing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Mobile security features are the heart of the SharePoint2Go solution, making it one of the most secure mobile SharePoint solutions on the market today, combining a range of features unmatched by rivals. A demonstration and free trial is available on the Azurati website.
Headquartered in Milton Keynes, UK, Azurati has been formed by seasoned industry professionals. R&D is the cornerstone of Azurati and the technical team has many years' expertise gained in mobile application development, as well as SharePoint and security solutions, within organisations including Open Text, Hummingbird and Digital Equipment Corporation.
