Depending on your company’s policies, there are three ways you may be able to access your data: on your Windows or Mac device, via your company’s URL, and on your Android or iOS device.
We recommend starting with Workplace for Windows and Mac as a launching point for your work day. You’ll sign into Workplace and use your mobile device for sign-in verification. In the Workplace desktop window, you'll see your work front and center.
And, you can easily access your data in the Workplace web app just by selecting the icon in your desktop window, so there’s no need to sign in a second time. Our user-friendly interface allows you to find your work no matter where you're logged in.
And when you’re on the go, your Android or iOS device gives you access to many of these features as well.
Let’s take a closer look at see what gets launched in each of these platforms.
Files and Folders
The Workplace file system is cloud-based, which makes it easy to access your work right from your Windows or Mac, web, and mobile apps, so you can keep working where you left off. Work on your files locally and automatically sync them to the cloud so they are available on any device with Workplace installed.
And, collaboration has never been easier, and safer. You can share folders and invite colleagues and clients to exchange and edit documents in a compliant, user-friendly work space.
Websites and Secure Browser
Everyone uses web apps, such as Salesforce and Google Docs, for the benefit of accessing their work from anywhere, through any web browser. However, if you’re working with sensitive data in a local, unmonitored browser, your company and customer information could be vulnerable.
Workplace offers a secure browser running in the cloud that is accessible right from your Workplace for Windows and Mac app, so you can have a seamless workflow, and peace of mind knowing your data remains protected. We'll go over more details about Secure browser in an upcoming module.
And to complete your workflow solution, Workplace for Android and iOS gives you secure access to your company data while on the go. Not only does our mobile app provide a multi-factor authentication channel that we call Sign-In Verification, it also syncs your files and company directory.
As you can see, Workplace is where you access all of your work, with just a single sign on. And after that, just click and go!
In the next module of the Workplace Stronghold course, we'll introduce you to Dynamic Access Control.
