LOS ANGELES, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FileLocker™, the industry's truly secure data sharing solution, is officially available for resale starting today. Qualified technology resellers can sign up to distribute FileLocker evaluation accounts to their customers at no charge. When end users purchase FileLocker, channel resellers begin receiving recurring commission on all sales of FileLocker to their customers – for the life of the sales contract. Program details can be found at http://www.filelocker.com/partners.
"Web-based collaboration is undergoing massive adoption by SMBs and corporate America. But this adoption has left out the channel – until now. FileLocker allows IT providers, VARs and MSPs to bring a web collaboration solution to their customers," said Ken Shaw, CEO of InfraScale™.
Truly Secure File Sharing
Built by world-class data protection experts, FileLocker represents the next generation of data sharing platforms that takes a fundamental step forward in security. Unlike other file collaboration services, FileLocker protects data by encrypting it locally, in-transit and in the cloud. Other web-based file sharing services send private files to the cloud in their raw, unlocked format – portraying private data as safe when it arrives in their cloud. The real risk is that data is decipherable if hacked while in transit and again while stored in their cloud.
FileLocker employs end-to-end encryption from desktop to cloud to keep information completely safe. Files are protected before leaving a device with a personal passphrase known only to the account-holder, transferred over a 256-bit SSL connection, encrypted again and then stored in the FileLocker cloud. Also, files are kept for an unlimited amount of time and each-and-every past version can be restored (unlimited versioning).
Private Cloud Deployable
Companies also have the option of running FileLocker in their own internal network, using their existing hardware and infrastructure. FileLocker can be hosted behind a private firewall, utilizing the software's end-to-end encryption between client and cloud. According to Gartner Research, up to 55% of corporate CIOs prefer their file storage behind the firewall. Jeff Boles, senior analyst at Taneja Group says, "We've been carefully watching this space to see who would be first to innovate inside the enterprise walls with a Dropbox-like solution, and [InfraScale] looks like they're first..."
A New Market Opportunity for IT Resellers
IT resellers have previously been shut out of the collaboration software market. FileLocker's free account model (five users) allows channel partners to take advantage of its viral components – seeding the product with targeted downstream customers and earning recurring commission when customers upgrade. FileLocker's security features will also appeal to downstream customers in financial, legal and medical fields, who must ensure that customer data is protected and not decipherable.
Amazing Security, Amazing Price
FileLocker is free for five people and up to 25 GBs of cloud storage (5 GB per person). For more than five people FileLocker is just $5 per month per person. At this price FileLocker comes with completely unlimited cloud storage, the secure FileLocker Desktop Sync app and powerful administrative controls and reporting.
