DURHAM, N.C. – CloudFuze said this week that it is now working with Citrix to provide Citrix ShareFile customers with access to enterprise content management systems.

Using the CloudFuze platform and the ShareFile StorageZone Connectors software development kit, customers can securely connect to and manage documents with leading enterprise content management systems including Alfresco, Microsoft SharePoint 2007 and EMC Documentum.

“People need to be able to securely edit files on mobile devices in order to be truly productive,” said Bill Carovano, senior director of product management at Citrix.

According to Carovano, this solution expands the types of enterprise content that users can access and edit from ShareFile on the go. Users will be able to access and edit Office documents stored in Documentum or annotate PDFs stored in Alfresco from an iPad.

The rise of new cloud storage options offers the potential for significant benefits including cost reduction, increased work mobility and collaboration, but it also adds file management complexity. Historically, file management was easy with local storage. The emerging cloud-based storage environment adds a complex set of management, integration and security issues that must be addressed.

CloudFuze aims to provide end users, developers and enterprises with a single platform that enables them to seamlessly access, share, manage and collaborate across changing file storage environments. For CloudFuze, the relationship with Citrix is part of the company’s growing role in the evolution of cloud collaboration.

CloudFuze was founded in October 2012 and is based in Durham.
