Well, it is official now! The new version of CodeTwo Public Folders is finally here. And it is not just a regular update, but an upgrade to version 5.0. This new release is by far the biggest milestone in the development of this powerful Outlook sharing plugin. With its new features, like the unique Internet synchronization, or the built-in File Sharing App, CodeTwo Public Folders 5.0 goes far beyond simple Outlook sharing and opens up completely new possibilities to users. Here’s what’s hot in the new version of the program.
Share Outlook over the Internet – no Cloud involved!
We thought about it for a long time and we finally did it. The new Internet synchronization feature allows you to share Outlook with multiple users wherever you are, no matter if it’s your local office, or a different office across the seas. What’s the most important, our Internet synchronization mechanism involves absolutely no Cloud services – and this is what really makes it stand out in the crowd. Why? Because in this model the only place, where your precious company data is stored is always your secure company network. Your shared information is never uploaded to any external servers where other people could possibly hack it or steal it.
Of course, if you still wish to share your Outlook data within a local network only, the program will let you do that. It’s up to you.
Data security and encryption
Because we do not use Cloud servers, it is always YOU, who remains in full control of your shared information. With CodeTwo Public Folders you do not create any sorts of accounts or virtual discs anywhere in the Cloud. All shared Outlook items travel always directly between the linked machines and the only place where they are actually saved are their local hard drives. This method, combined with data encryption and the advanced access rights options of CodeTwo Public Folders, is probably the highest security standard you can presently get!
The built-in File Sharing App
We do realize that oftentimes Outlook sharing is simply not enough. That’s why the new version of CodeTwo Public Folders is equipped with a built-in File Sharing App, which allows you to share all sorts of Windows files outside your mail client. Again, the synchronization occurs in real time and without using the Cloud, you can do it either through a local connection or the Internet.
Other new features and improvements
Apart from the above mentioned novelties, the program gained a whole set of other improvements. Here’s what else has been implemented in version 5.0 – just to mention a few of them:
- New user’s interface (Outlook icons and the Administration Panel).
- Improved security: central management of logins and passwords.
- Improved security: it is possible to use Active Directory credentials.
- Improved security: access to the Administration Panel is secured with a login and a password.
- New licensing model. The program is sold in two modes: with or without the Forwarding Service responsible for the Internet syncing.
- Mobility: the program is now compatible with the CodeTwo Sync for iCloud plugin to let you sync shared info with iCloud. (Learn more…)
