TappIn press releases and in the news.

TappIn now available through the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace

Tappin is pleased to partner with Rackspace to provide customers more freedom to access and share their data no matter where life takes them!

You’re moments away from a huge presentation and you’re ready to knock it out of the park. You open your tablet. You’re going to wow the audience. But, uh oh, the file you need isn’t there. It’s on your laptop, which is in the car … in your garage at home.

This may be an extreme example, but it just goes to show that when you don’t have access to all the files that you need, it can lead to frustration as well as a drop in productivity. Yes, cloud services can help with this, but even still, you may be lacking some of the necessary technology to truly make a difference.

Tappin makes it easy to access your content from any mobile device

TappIn changes that. At TappIn, we have developed a service that allows you to access files stored on any computer, server or cloud. Not only can you access and securely share files, but you can do so from any web browser and from virtually any mobile device, including the Android, iPhone and Windows phones.

“Rackspace customers look for flexibility and agility from an open cloud platform,” said Ven Shanmugam, senior manager for corporate strategy at Rackspace. “By aligning efforts with TappIn, we are eliminating obstacles that once plagued businesses by helping them leverage the cloud to gain unhindered access to their data. We’re excited to have TappIn available to our customers via the Cloud Tools Marketplace and we look forward to ongoing collaboration.”

TappIn gives customers the ability to instantly access and securely share virtually all of their files, no matter where they're stored: on office and home computers, office servers, or OnTapp cloud storage. Using SSL encryption to safeguard content, TappIn securely allows sharing of files from any web browser on your desktop and from mobile devices and platforms, including Apple iPhone®, Google® Android™ and Windows® Phone.

“Instant access to your data from anywhere can seem like a luxury for some, but it’s a critical part of day-to-day business activities for many others,” says Bill Buie, Globalscape executive vice president of sales and marketing. “There is rarely a substitute for ‘now’ and we’re excited to help connect Rackspace customers with their data quickly and securely, regardless of where they are or where their content is stored.”

After downloading the TappIn solution, all Rackspace customers will receive a 30-day free trial of the TappIn Pro Edition, which provides seamless, mobile access to your data, access to OnTapp secure cloud storage service, direct WebDAV access to your content, and administrative functionality to support groups of users. Customers can then choose to continue using the Pro Edition for $39.99 per year or switch to TappIn’s Standard Edition for $19.99 per year.

TAPPIN GIVES RACKSPACE® CUSTOMERS ACCESS TO THEIR DATA ANYWHERE, ANYTIME AND FROM ANY PLATFORM

TappIn Partners with ESET!

TappIn Inc. by GlobalSCAPE is proud to welcome ESET, the newest members of its affiliate partner program!  TappIn is so excited to make this announcement as ESET’s anti-virus solutions and proactive cyber threat protections have made them one of the best anti-malware vendors in the world.

A recent study showed that 81% of workers now use personal electronic devices in the workplace.  And of that 81% one-third of respondents said that their company’s data was not encrypted, making accessing it remotely very risky for business owners.  ESET has been delivering trusted internet protection for years, but the popularity of remote access has only very recently exploded.

A Little Bit About ESET

You already know how we here at TappIn started and how TappIn works, but we wanted to give you a little bit more information on ESET as well.  With millions of users worldwide, ESET is one of the most recommended security solutions in the world.  Their products are sold in over 180 different countries and they have headquarters in North and South America, Asia, and Europe.

"ESET has long been at the forefront of computer security with industry-leading virus and malware detection that protect against a host of evolving threats,” said Chris Hopen, President of TappIn, Inc.

And now ESET users can use TappIn to safely and securely remote access file sharing, picture sharing, and streaming music, all from almost any mobile device.  “TappIn’s approach to mobile content access offers secure access and sharing, and is consistent with the caliber of security our customers have come to expect from ESET,” said Andrew Lee, CEO, ESET North America.
