When accessing content, Acronis Files Advanced requires that the user authenticate in the same way that a corporate user is typically required for other network resources. When giving access to existing file servers, NAS and SharePoint servers, Acronis Files Advanced enforces the same file access permissions that apply to standard network clients, namely NTFS permissions or ACLs. Acronis Files Advanced clients connect securely using HTTPS, encrypting all data on the network. For many organizations, Acronis Files Advanced mobile clients will connect over a secure VPN connection or through an HTTPS Reverse Proxy server, adding a further level of security.
Files synced to or stored on a mobile device within Acronis Files Advanced are encrypted at all times and can be further protected by an application lock password at the user or administrator’s preference. Note that, once files are opened into another app, the security responsibility passes to that app. This ‘Open In’ capability can be restricted by whitelist/blacklist or disabled.
