Cloud collaboration company YouSendIt is debuting a new product today called Workstream. Designed specifically for enterprises, Workstream is a file sharing platform for businesses, and offers deeper integration with Microsoft SharePoint and helps users securely share content beyond the firewall and across mobile devices, desktops and the Web.
For background, YouSendIt was one of the pioneers of file sharing, offering a service that mainly appealed to behind-the-firewall customers who were unable to send large files via email due to Microsoft Exchange limitations.
Workstream integrates with Microsoft Active Directory and Outlook and aims to make, accessing, sharing and managing content between customers, suppliers or partners from inside and outside the firewall easier and more secure. The company also offers a SharePoint plug-in so users can seamlessly and securely share files externally with partners, customers and vendors straight from SharePoint.
The file sharing platform has support for sharing across iPhone, iPad, Android, desktop (on Mac and Windows) and the Web. Workstream also enforces encryption on mobile devices and provides policies such as mobile application passcode enforcement and remote wipe of application data.
Currently, YouSendIt has 28 million registered users worldwide.
