Gravitas has launched Gravitas Atmosphere, a secure, private, cloud-based online file sharing, sync and storage service, for the alternative investment industry.
Gravitas Atmosphere was designed for asset management professionals to access, share and synchronise corporate data or files from any authorised computer or mobile device anytime, anywhere, within a private, secure environment.
Gravitas has partnered with EMC Syncplicity and EMC Atmos to deliver Gravitas Atmosphere within the Gravitas Private Cloud, which is powered by VCE’s Vblock technology.
“The collaborative, dynamic ways in which we work have changed things dramatically and the alternative asset management industry is no exception,” says Patrick Mullevey, executive director of systems integration at Gravitas. “People expect to be able to access and share information across multiple devices seamlessly. Gravitas Atmosphere offers a highly secure, frictionless user experience with military-grade encryption, ease of management, and flexible, scalable storage using EMC storage within the Gravitas Private Cloud.”
In a Gravitas poll conducted this summer, 58 per cent of CTOs and COOs said they consider information leakage, storage, regulatory compliance and control of information flow to be major concerns. The same poll revealed that 80 per cent of the companies surveyed allow employees to use their own devices for work.
“The consumerisation of IT continues to transform the financial services industry and is fuelling demand for instant access to files across all platforms, devices and locations,” says Mullevey. “Gravitas Atmosphere answers this urgent call for enterprise-grade solutions that provide flexibility and adequate security and IT controls to protect critical data.”
