Forrester has named Intralinks VIA a ‘Leader' in its latest report The Forrester Wave:Enterprise File Sync and Share Platforms, Cloud Solutions, Q1 2016.

Intralinks, the global SaaS provider specialising in enterprise content collaboration solutions, has been recognised for its strong governance, rights management, technology strategy and security capabilities.

Forrester evaluated vendors based on 40 criteria, and noted that Intralinks VIA was launched to provide secure file sharing and content collaboration capabilities, particularly for regulated industries and cross-enterprise teams working with high value or sensitive content.

In the Forrester Wave report, the vendor received the highest possible scores for technology strategy, rights management, encryption, data sovereignty support, mobile protection and lifecycle management capabilities. The Forrester report also notes that, “plug-in free information rights management (IRM) is an important differentiator. Customers may use granular controls on files that are shared, even with external collaborators.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognised as a leader in the Forrester Wave report,” says Ron Hovsepian, Intralinks CEO and president.

“It's especially gratifying to be cited for our strong security, governance and rights management. File sync and share is an important feature of our enterprise collaboration solutions, which provide customers the freedom to work confidently beyond enterprise boundaries,” he says.

Built on a proven technology platform used by 99% of the global Fortune 1000, Intralinks VIA is designed to enable enterprises to facilitate document collaboration, content management, and secure file sync and share across and between organisations. Intralinks VIA can used by professionals as they work across a network of business communities, partners and remote colleagues and collaborate on valuable or sensitive documents, according to the company.
