Vaultize: A Proactive Approach towards BYOD

Anand.K.Kekre, CEO, Co-Founder,
Today, more and more enterprises are embracing the concept of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD), owing to its potential to bring increased productivity and connectivity across the organization. However, the trend is not devoid of challenges. For in¬stance, security is a key concern related to mobile adoption in the enterprise. Also, BYOD carries with it a whole host of compliance concerns. With US head¬quarter in New York, Vaultize provides a platform for enterprise file sync & share (EFSS), VPN-free anywhere access and mobile collaboration with built-in Digital Rights Management (DRM aka IRM), Mobile Content Management (MCM) and Data Protection (endpoint backup, encryption and wiping) capabilities. In today’s world of mobility, “We help enterprise IT mitigate security, data loss and compliance risks by giving “information-centric” end-to-end security, privacy and control of corporate data. With the mobile-first user experience, employees get to access, edit, sync, share and control corporate data from anywhere and on any device,” says Anand A. Kekre, CEO and Co-founder, Vaultize.

Vaultize offers solutions which form a crucial part of an enterprise’s BYOD approach. “We facilitate MCM through data access rights. This allows corporate IT to prevent data loss by controlling what users can do with data on their mobile devices,” adds Kekre. The company allows granular control over copy-paste of content or files, sharing or opening in third-party mobile applications, printing, email attachments. This is possible through Vaultize's policy driven control over the mobile app and its built-in document editor. Also, Vaultize’s Mobile Data Containerization technology ensures that data is stored in a secure container on mobile devices that facilitates secure BYOD. The container is always kept encrypted to protect it from unauthorized access with the ability for IT to securely wipe its contents in case a device is lost or user leaves the organization. Geo and IP fencing capabilities further protect the contents by wiping the container when the device leaves a pre-defined geography or IP range. All this together with AES-256 encryption of in-transit data provides unmatched end-to-end security. “Apart from the security components, we provide many end-user features like flexible group collaboration with selective folders, automatic conversion of attachments to links through Outlook plugin and upload permissions to third-party, that increases usability and productivity,” adds Kekre.
“We take an information-centric approach to end to end security by ensuring that corporate information and data always stays in control of IT. They enhance the security of corporate documents by embedding the digital rights management with¬in the documents themselves,” says Kekre. “The files shared across corporate fence are DRM encrypted such that they are only usable by the authorized recipients and within the authorized environment.”

The uniqueness of solutions, along with their client centric approach helps Vaultize to stand out from the rest. The case of DDB Mudra Group, the leader in integrated marketing and communications and services network, testimonies this fact. The enterprise has been using a traditional on-premise solution for file sharing and data protection. Because of the tremendous challenges with the traditional approach, there was a need for a solution that could not only address the data loss and security issues but could seamlessly fit their BYOD strategy. Selecting Vaultize to support its data protection and mobility strategy, DDB benefitted from next generation cloud architected platform for mobile collaboration, endpoint data protection, and secure file sharing & sync. Vaultize Enterprise Platform ensured that DDB Mudra Group gets lower TCO with faster ROI.

Going forward, Vaultize is planning to set its foot in Europe and Australia/ New Zealand. In addition, the company is planning to launch more services built around DRM and MCM.


We follow information-centric approach where security of corporate content is the focus, and not the control on end-user device. We ensure that end-users get to access, use and share the corporate contents seamlessly from any device they like and from anywhere
