SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Syncplicity, the leader of the hybrid enterprise file sync and share market, today announced that the company achieved accelerated growth in 2015. Syncplicity added several large enterprise accounts to its customer base, including the single largest enterprise file sync and share deployment in the world to date. These new accounts were a main driver of bookings growth and led to a 112 percent increase in users during the year.
The company's new bookings in the second half of 2015 were over 100 percent greater than in the first half of the year and continue to accelerate in 2016. Syncplicity ignited this strong performance by building on existing strategic partnerships, establishing new partnerships, expanding internationally and adding value for customers through new capabilities and user engagement strategies.
"Syncplicity has rapidly become the preferred choice of the enterprise due to its superior security, best-in-class user experience and substantial IT cost savings," said Jonathan Huberman, CEO of Syncplicity. "For enterprises today, a hybrid storage file sync and share approach is the most sensible and thoughtful way to marry the flexibility of file sharing with security compliance needs. By investing significantly in product development and solution delivery, we saw substantial adoption in target geographies like EMEA by organizations that seek this critical EFSS balance."
"One of the most important areas of innovation for the EFSS market in 2016 will be how solutions fit into existing infrastructure, workflows and processes within companies," said ESG Senior Analyst Terri McClure. "Customers should not be expected to rip and replace existing technologies, instead EFSS solutions should easily integrate with existing infrastructure, including security products for enterprise mobility management (EMM), data loss prevention, and information rights management (IRM). Syncplicity's integrations with the largest EMM players in the market, along with their native IRM capabilities and strong security and manageability features position it well to win large enterprise customers and continue to gain market share this year."
