GroupLogic Introduces mobilEcho 4.0, Giving Users Sync and Mobile Access to SharePoint Servers
mobilEcho Client Management Improvements Offer Users More Flexibility to Edit and Access Files from the Device of Their Choice
ARLINGTON, VA — July 31, 2012 - GroupLogic®, the industry’s leading provider of software products that unlock the power of new enterprise platforms, announced today the latest version of its Mobile File Management (MFM) solution, mobilEcho. With mobilEcho 4.0, users now have access to corporate content via enterprise file servers, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and SharePoint. In addition to SharePoint integration, mobilEcho 4.0 also contains updates to client management and an administration console enhancement.
“Enterprise investment in content and document management is continuing to grow, which means the use of corporate files and documents on smartphones and tablets is also increasing,” said Chris Hazelton, research director, mobile & wireless, at 451 Research. “At the same time, it is necessary to keep these devices secure, especially when accessing and editing documents. Organizations need to marry the user’s need for easy and convenient access to documents with the IT department’s need to exhibit a level of control that ensures policies remain intact.”
“mobilEcho has enabled us to access documents from wherever our employees happen to be, changing how we do business and enabling us to work more efficiently,” said Brandon Covert, director of information technology for the Cleveland Browns. “We appreciate that GroupLogic is constantly updating the product to ensure we always have the features and capabilities we need, right when we need them. We also use SharePoint extensively in the organization, so remote SharePoint access is a great addition to the mobilEcho solution.”
A summary of the updates and features within mobilEcho 4.0 includes:
- Support for access to Document Libraries on SharePoint 2007 and 2010 servers
- Additional client management policy settings:
- Wipe or lock client app after not contacting the mobilEcho Client Management server for a number of days.
- Disable storage of files in the ‘My Files’ folder.
- Disable the ability to configure an app lock password.
- Disable the ability to bookmark folders.
- Client management console enhancements for improved experience managing 1000’s of users:

“Adding SharePoint server access to mobilEcho’s already robust feature offering is a direct response to the needs of our customers, many of which work for highly-regulated enterprises,” said Brian Ulmer, GroupLogic product manager. “It’s required that any access they have to corporate content be secure and centrally-managed, so making it just as simple for the user to use as it is for IT to configure is the key to successful implementations.”
