Collaboration application company Workshare has extended its platform's file sharing and sync features to the developer community. An open API is available to programmers to create apps that build on, customize for, and are integrated with Workshare's feature set.

This sharing, synchronization, and collaboration technology will help programmers share and collaborate on files while still maintaining a reasonable level of control beyond the firewall.

NOTE: Users can participate in existing collaborations or create new workflows, making location-tagged comments directly in the context of each page.

Features here include "Simple Sync", which allows Workshare files and folders to be synced between the online platform, Workshare Desktop, and Workshare Mobile. When online, files are always up-to-date with the latest comments and changes made by fellow collaborators.

Data is encrypted at rest and in transit using the highest level of encryption. In addition, Workshare Mobile Apps include mobile data management, ensuring tamper-proof security in case the device is lost or stolen.

"By exposing our API, we are extending our platform to developers and clients so they can benefit from our patented IP that has been developed around simple and secure collaboration. Our easy-to-use API is already attracting a growing number of developers and clients to the Workshare collaboration ecosystem as they build their feature sets into their own apps and back-end systems," said Anthony Foy, Workshare CEO.

The API is available at the Workshare developer hub where developers can review API functions that currently include adding Workshare folders, files, and users as well as setting Workshare permissions. At the hub, developers can map programmatic interfaces to back-office systems or internal documentation before developing, testing, and deploying custom applications.
