TappIn, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of GlobalSCAPE (NYSE MKT: GSB), a leading innovator of secure information exchange solutions for businesses and consumers, announced today a partnership with QNAP whereby TappIn by GlobalSCAPE’s secure content mobility solution will be available to QNAP’s customers using the storage vendor’s popular NAS devices. TappIn provides a secure, integrated service for customers to receive mobile access to digital content stored on a QNAP Turbo NAS device from any web browser, tablet, or smartphone, including Apple iOS®, Google® Android™, Windows Phone 7®, and Kindle Fire. QNAP customers simply register for TappIn and begin accessing their files on any Turbo NAS device via the TappIn web application or mobile apps.
According to new research from International Data Corporation (IDC), the volume of digital information may balloon from 2.7 zettabytes this year -- the equivalent of filling 2.7 billion of Apple® Inc.'s priciest desktop iMacs to capacity -- to 8 zettabytes by 2015. The explosion of digital content is paralleled by the proliferation of devices on which people can access it. As this market’s demand continues to increase, QNAP’s integration of TappIn into its NAS devices will provide a solution for its customers that offers comprehensive local storage and simple and secure mobile file access, helping QNAP to continue its trend as one of the top providers of NAS and unified storage devices in the industry.
“As mobility increasingly makes every facet of our lives available at the touch of a screen, QNAP customers are looking for solutions that not only allow them to securely store their data, but access it anytime, anywhere,” said Jérôme Jaussaud, a product manager of QNAP. “By partnering with GlobalSCAPE’s TappIn, QNAP can now offer its customers secure access to the digital content they store on our Turbo NAS devices from any remote computer or mobile device, without the hassle or expense of moving or syncing that content to the cloud.”
