    Share On

    Remote file transfer, as the name suggests is the process of transferring a file on a remote computer or a device, over the air. This is carried out with the help of a file transfer application. In the world of hyper-connected devices equipped with applications, email or a cloud-based storage app like Google Drive is commonly used for remote file transfer. Also, messenger apps and social network apps are widely used for transferring files remotely.

    For devices used in a corporate environment, IT admins need to transfer files remotely using a more secure alternative. Also, on managed devices deployed as kiosks, the above-mentioned apps are not necessarily allowed. 

    Moreover, the IT teams need to have remote file access on the corporate-owned devices to troubleshoot device errors or issues. This holds especially true for unmonitored devices. 

    Using remote file sync, IT teams can access files on a device operating remotely without any manual intervention.

    Scalefusion MDM offers remote file sync for corporate-owned Android devices. Using Scalefusion remote control file transfer feature, IT admins can:

    • Access files on a remote device

    • Delete a file from a remote device

    This feature is available within the Remote Cast & Control feature of the Scalefusion dashboard.
