DroboAccess allows secure and encrypted remote access so that files are always accessible anywhere, at any time, and on any device. Users can access files from a web browser, or directly from a mobile device using a dedicated iOS or Android app. It allows users to host their very own private and personal cloud storage solution using their own Drobo. DroboAccess is available on the Drobo 5N and B810n. It will enable users to securely share folders or files via links with read only and R/W privileges along with password protection options.

Expanding myDrobo platform functionality
DroboAccess extends the myDrobo service, which provides a secure way for many applications to access data stored on a company’s network attached systems. The myDrobo platform addresses the issue of accessing information on a firm’s storage array that sits behind a secure home or office firewall. With myDrobo, data transfer from the Drobo to a portable device is encrypted end-to-end and each Drobo carries a unique SSL certificate. It is this model of simplicity that allows users to extend their storage investment into hosting the applications they need securely.

In addition to DroboAccess, applications such as Koken, a photo library app and WordPress, a popular blog app resides within the myDrobo platform. This set of downloadable DroboApps will enhance the capabilities and the experience of the Drobo 5N and B810n, providing the ability to host your own blog using WordPress and share photos with a sophisticated gallery app using Koken, directly and securely from Drobo.

We are excited to bring DroboAccess to our 5N and B810n customers as the next logical progression for our myDrobo suite of applications,” said Rod Harrison, CTO, Drobo. “The DroboAccess solution is not only important for our prosumer customer base, who need to access their data remotely, but also for SMBs, who need the ability to share company information in a secure manner with their mobile workforce.
