Gladinet continues to enhance its solution for service providers seeking to deploy a private dropbox alternative.

Gladinet has announced the release of an updated Android client for Gladinet Cloud storage which allows users to open and modify cloud documents using any application on their Android based mobile device. The updated mobile clients make Gladinet's cloud storage access platform even more compelling. The company offers an extremely flexible cloud collaboration service to customers seeking a public dropbox alternative, but it is focused on allowing enterprises and service providers to deploy a private dropbox alternative using Gladinet Cloud Enterprise. That offering has been well received by customers, despite the missing mobile features that this update now addresses.

The BYOD phenomenon has presented many enterprises with the challenge of accommodating the access needs of employees with mobile devices. Their employees have become accustomed to the convenience of public cloud storage while their IT departments are more comfortable with the control and security of on premise infrastructure. Gladinet bridges that gap by allowing enterprises or their service providers to deploy an enterprise dropbox alternative with all the collaboration features users need, while maintaining complete control of the cloud storage and access infrastructure."

Gladinet's CEO, Jerry Huang, stated "We are pleased to provide our Android users with a significantly richer experience with this updated Android client that makes it easy to share any file or folder on their device, upload pictures and video directly to cloud storage, or synchronize existing folders to the Gladinet Cloud. The new client also allows documents in cloud storage to be opened and modified in place with any Android application."

The latest Android client can be downloaded from Google Play (fka the Android Market).
