  • There are numerous cloud-based storage services, including Google Drive, Dropbox and But you may not be able to view your docs properly and anyone that can gain access to your cloud can download your documents freely too File Name Here.ppt
  • You can make use of a VPN if you can find a client for your tablet or smartphone that will work with your corporate VPN provider. One issue for VPNs is that they assume all apps on your tablet are well behaved. Once you open up a VPN connection, any app can have full access to your corporate network. File Name Here.ppt

  • As we use smaller-screen devices, it gets harder to find a way to view these documents the way they appear on our large 25-inch monitors on our desktops. Some solutions might be able to transfer a document to a device, but then we waste time moving around and swiping, magnifying and dragging to see its contents clearly. Some solutions support only particular versions or file types, or do oddball conversions that result in some unexpected ways that make it difficult to view the content. This is a sample PPT slide showing you how it looks under certain circumstances. File Name Here.ppt
