Mount Laurel, NJ –March 24, 2015 – Talon, the leading provider of Microsoft™ File Aware application performance, intelligent file caching solutions for distributed enterprise infrastructure, today announced a new version of its MobileFAST™ file sharing application.

Key Features from the new release include:
· Offline & Online Access to your files and folders

Building on its flagship RemoteFAST™ product, Talon’s introduction of MobileFAST™ in 2013 presented a number of technology and economic firsts to the mobile marketplace. Today, the new MobileFAST™ provides seamless integration as clients can automatically collaborate to create a high performance, distributed workforce whether using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. Clients are fully integrated with enterprise security, allowing for AD log on, remote wiping capabilities and secure transport with no VPN requirements. Laptop users have full offline networking mode with local virtual cache, preserving Windows semantics.
“Talon’s MobileFAST™ provides secure global file access and sharing for remote workers utilizing laptops, or even BYOD. This is how people work today, from wherever they are and the advantages of being able to share files directly with colleagues, from any location securely is critical,” said Jaap van Duijvenbode, Product Director, Talon. “We are pleased to unveil our latest updates and new version of MobileFAST™. We know the increased capabilities will provide enterprise organizations with a solution to the ‘client vs. regional office’ dilemma, by providing multi-site collaboration, anywhere, anytime access, regardless of device and ensuring data integrity while significantly lowering TCO.”
MobileFAST™ is available to Talon clients free of charge. All smartphones, tablets, and laptops can be equipped at zero cost.
