PKWARE Introduces Viivo for Business to Provide Security, Visibility and Control of Corporate Files in the Public Cloud

MILWAUKEE, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PKWARE introduces Viivo for Business, software that secures sensitive files that are stored and shared in public cloud environments like Dropbox®, Box®, Microsoft SkyDrive® and Google™ Drive, while providing administrative visibility and control.


With Viivo for Business, companies gain visibility into data sharing and usage analytics for how public cloud storage services are used within the organization. Working with the public cloud, Viivo for Business empowers organizations with controls for data security and management of users and access.

"Public cloud providers have made sharing easy, but also dangerous. Businesses need a way to ensure security for employees working with sensitive files in the cloud while also providing traditional IT controls and visibility," said Jim Lewis, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at PKWARE. "Viivo for Business gives professionals strong security for collaboration in the cloud without changing user workflow."

Viivo encrypts sensitive data before it is stored and shared in the public cloud, eliminating the risk of exposure. Built with ZIP compression, Viivo reduces file size by up to 95%, enabling faster cloud synchronization and decreasing storage costs.

The public cloud makes sharing simple. Viivo makes it secure. Try Viivo for free.
