TeamDrive Collaboration Solution Expanded to Linux Desktops

TeamDrive enables users to work across the Internet

Today’s release of its Linux client completes the cross platform collaboration solution TeamDrive, which is now available for Windows, Mac and Linux. TeamDrive enables users to work across the Internet, securely and easily. Whether you’re working as a team, mobile or between your home work station and your company: while guaranteeing your privacy, every single file and document, always up-to-date and even offline, is readily available to users by dint of TeamDrive. And on top of that, you can use any WebDAV server or pre-configured cloud hosting services of your choice. Both hosting solutions – the user’s own WebDAV server or the Amazon cloud services – provide a comparable unparalleled level of privacy and security through TeamDrive’s built-in encryption technology. The new TeamDrive clients support KDE and Gnome desktops on the latest distributions of Feodora, Ubuntu and Suse Linux.

The co-worker can convert the contents of a folder on his PC or notebook into a secure shared space by merely three mouse clicks and is able to continue working as usual at his computer without any expenditure of learning effort. He can use and work on this shared space in common with any number of personally “invited” users. OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, pdf documents, photographs, videos and all other file formats can be exchanged. Automatic versioning, backup and file synchronization greatly enhance all aspects of productivity. TeamDrive does its work nearly imperceptibly in the background.

TeamDrive‘s co-founder and COO, Detlef Schmuck, says, „TeamDrive takes charge of protection against unauthorized disclosure. For this purpose the security standards for the collaboration software are very high, despite its easy operation. According to our motto: ’My data belongs to me’, each user maintains complete control over his documents.” Owing to its high security standards, the collaboration software has been awarded the data protection seal of quality by the ULD (Independent Center for Privacy Protection).
