SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Syncplicity, the global leader of the hybrid enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) market, today announced SyncDrive, a new feature that provides users with instant access to all company files that they are authorized to see, on any device of their choosing, without syncing the files locally. Syncplicity now gives users real-time, secure and easy access to all enterprise data sources (such as migrated network drives, group file shares and home directories) without regard to folder size or the need to access the company network through a VPN. With the introduction of SyncDrive, Syncplicity continues to extend its lead in Digital Transformation by enabling IT infrastructure modernization and access to petabytes of data in legacy file shares.
SyncDrive redefines how users work with large volumes of data across the enterprise. As companies remove data silos, users have unprecedented access to corporate information. However, access to this data is usually complicated and cumbersome. SyncDrive removes these hurdles by providing users with access to all their files through their desktop (or any other device) regardless of the size of the folders being accessed. Users can selectively sync their frequently used files and folders locally and an intelligent cache ensures they need not worry about running out of storage.
"We are excited to announce SyncDrive, which in combination with Syncplicity's DataHub, enables organizations to vastly reduce their IT expense while delighting their users with unprecedented access to all their data on any device," said Jon Huberman, CEO of Syncplicity. "These twin solutions are revolutionizing how work gets done."
"With all the silos of information that pop up across the enterprise, employees waste far too many cycles digging through their online filing cabinets searching for the files they need," said Terri McClure, Sr. Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "Having a single view that spans silos is an important step in helping to increase employee productivity and end user satisfaction with the tools they are being provided by IT."
SyncDrive is currently in beta and will be generally available to all our customers later this fall. Syncplicity has been recognized by analysts and selected by customers for its ability to help large enterprises modernize their IT infrastructure. Syncplicity is the only vendor that offers this unique combination of features.
Syncplicity is the leading hybrid enterprise file sync and share and mobile collaboration solution that provides users with the experience and tools they desire and gives IT the security and control it needs, while significantly reducing infrastructure cost. Some of its customers include Siemens AG, Texas A&M University, EMC Corporation, State of Indiana, the Associated Press and the Boston Red Sox.
