Einstein gives you the freedom to access company servers, right from your phone and tablet.
And let’s face it,with all that brainpower at your fingertips, anything is possible.
Access servers across distributed offices and allow remote teams to collaborate as if they’re in the same room. One virtual location for all files — accessible from home, work, overseas, or in transit. Users can download a file, made edits, create subfolders, and upload new files to the group.
Simple Direct Access
Einstein connects mobile devices to your server. No need for a ‘middleman’ cloud…you get direct access to the information you need, when you need it. Users can view all of their files, and when they want to retrieve something, it is sent to the device. It’s like taking your server with you (but much more convenient).
A ‘No Brainer’ for IT
Files are stored on-premises. Legacy systems can be utilized. Users and devices are pre-approved. Data is shared with permissions. File access is traceable. Transfers are encrypted. All data, even meta-data, stays on the device. Devices can be wiped remotely. And it only takes only two minutes to set up. Einstein is an easy win. Done.
Choosing between a Cloud or On-Premesis solution? No need to choose when Einstein delivers the best of both worlds! You get all the mobility, simplicity, and cost benefits of a cloud solution. And you get all the security, control, and long-term savings of an on-premises solution. Polkast is an “on-premises cloud” that is the answer to your prayers.
With Polkast, our sales team can securely access, download and cache the entire Legacy Applications Data Library, plus both receive/upload the latest updates on active projects. All P2P, while on-the-go, from anywhere.

On-Premises Security, With Cloud Mobility ™
Full Control. Einstein is a private cloud with the security of on-premises file storage. All files stay on your own server so that systems and data can be controlled by IT and managed by the department.
No Internet Exposure. Files are never uploaded to the internet and never saved in Polkast. They stay right on your own server. With Einstein, you keep control over your content, every step of the way.
Save in Storage Fees. By utilizing the existing storage on your server, Einstein allows you to take advantage of the significant investment already made in hardware, without having to pay for additional storage packages on a cloud.
Easy as Pie. Everything should be this simple! Getting Einstein set up for you and your team takes minutes, not hours. And it’s so easy-to-use, that you don’t even need an IT department to get things rolling!

The Big Advantage. Einstein’s file virtualization system gives you have a virtual snapshot of all files on your company servers. You can see everything right from your mobile device. And all of those files are accessible with the click of a button!
Better than Syncing. It’s faster and more robust than clouds and services that rely on file syncing. With those guys, you can only access files that have been synced or uploaded. With Einstein, you can access all of your files…ALL of them…without having to sync or upload anything.
Flexible Security Footprint. Syncing requires you to sync files from everywhere, which exposes your security footprint in multiple locations. Einstein gives you a single file source, so there is a single security policy that is made visible from multiple places.
Full Oversight. Einstein empowers IT will full oversight of how and when company information is being used. It’s a virtual control tower that let’s you manage the distribution and access of all business content.
Centralized Dashboard. As an IT admin, you will love Einstein’s centralized dashboard that lets you manage the lifecycle of company files. You will see who accessed which files, when they were accessed, and on which device.
Access and security are the center of a medical practice. I have more than one office that patients can visit. Polkast allows me to access my information from home or either office so I always have the data when I need it.
- Dr. Fernando García-Rojas Rivera
Remote Wipe Capabilities
Security Threats. Remote wipe is a security feature that allows IT admins to identify a potential security threat and to wipe the at-risk device clean of company data.
Terminated Employees. What happens when an employee leaves the company? Einstein allows you to remove a user from the system, and to delete company content from all devices associated with that user.
Lost or Stolen Devices. What if you leave your iPad on the plane? Einstein allows you to remove select devices from the system and to remotely clear them of all data.
What’s Old is New. You have old hardware and devices, so put them to work for you! Einstein lets you turn your NAS device or Windows XP server into a fully functioning private cloud that your whole team can use.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Why pay a fortune for cloud storage or a new system? Reduce waste and use the storage you already have on your current servers. Your team and your wallet will thank you.
Return on Investment. You’ve already made a huge investment in IT infrastructure, so why change course? Einstein lets you take advantage of the investment you have already made in servers and computers.We just give you access to it.
Live Feed. Polkast provides a live-feed of all activities related to your data. You can visit the dashboard and instantly see which files were accessed at any given time.

Downloadable Activity Logs. Save a copy of your activity log that shows the full lifecyle of all corporate files and all users.
Advanced Permissions for Shared Data
Share Securely. Some files are more confidential than others and you don’t want everyone seeing everything. It makes sense to have different permissions and access rights for different types of files.
Individual Settings. Every time a file or folder is shared, the user must assign one of three access levels. They can identify one of the following:
- Viewer. A viewer can download the file to their device for viewing purposes.
- Collaborator. A collaborator can download and upload new content to the group in a specified folder or server.
- Manager. Managers have full access to all content and are capable of downloading, uploading, sharing, and adding additional users to Polkast.
Polkast is bringing to the table something that nobody has…It works across legacy systems seamlessly.
