Enterprise search firm Simplexo has unveiled a secure service that allows users to access and search files stored on PCs, Macs and web-based storage systems using any internet-enabled device via the cloud.
SearchYourCloud offers access to content such as documents when on the move. After installing SearchYourCloud software on a PC or Mac, users can then access data from their machines remotely, even when the machine is turned off.
Information is accessed using Simplexo's HTML 5 web-based application, which is optimised for iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry devices.
Simplexo is confident that there are no security issues as the firm uses secure remote access technology. This avoids the need to establish a direct network connection between a mobile and host computer or network, explained Simon Bain, chief technology officer at Simplexo.
"To enable data to be accessed when machines are off, Simplexo stores data securely in the Amazon S3 cloud," he told V3.co.uk.
"When connecting with cloud-storage services such as Dropbox, users will be able to search for content. This is done without encrypting data so we are able to index to ensure it is still secure."
Additionally, the service allows read-only access to emails from Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Microsoft Exchange and POP3 providers.
Simplexo will offer the service through partners from 11 July. Pricing is yet to be confirmed but is expected to take the form of a monthly subscription.
V3.co.uk will be testing SearchYourCloud soon and will post a hands-on review in the near future.
