This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2013.06.12
At the Autotask Community Live event, eFolder,
Inc., a supplier of cloud data protection and BC services for the IT
channel, and Mezeo Software, Inc., a supplier
of cloud storage enabling software solutions for MSPs, announced a partnership
to bring cloud file sync services to MSPs throughout North America.
The combined solution will be sold and supported by eFolder and will offer
MSPs, solution providers, and VARs a business-class, secure, and
channel-ready cloud file sync service that meets the needs of SMBs. Available
to eFolder partners in calendar Q3, the eFolder cloud File Sync service will be
sold on a per-user per-month basis and allow partners to make
monthly recurring revenue and profit margins.
With the growth in mobility and BYOD initiatives, users have come to expect
anytime and anywhere access to files, across any device, be it smartphone,
tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. However, the first generation of
consumer-grade cloud file sync solutions has failed to meet the security,
compliance, and user control requirements that business users expect. eFolder
cloud File Sync supplies the benefits users need and want, such as ease of
use, anytime, anywhere access, and collaboration with team members, while
adding vital business-class features, such as data encryption in transit
and at rest, user and group level permissions, Active Directory integration,
user control and remote wipe, and a HIPAA compliant storage cloud. eFolder
empowers file sync, productivity, and collaboration, without compromising
security and control.
Like all eFolder services, eFolder cloud File Sync is built for deployment by
the IT channel. The service comes standard with the features in demand by MSPs,
including multi-tenant management and monitoring professional services
automation (PSA) integration, a brandable web portal, 200GB included cloud
storage per user, and a wholesale per-user per-month service fee
that drives recurring revenue and attractive gross margins.
"eFolder is filling a huge need in
the market," stated Dave Watts, president, NetFusion, Inc., a Los
Angeles-based MSP. "Consumer-grade
file sync solutions introduce massive data leakage risks for our business
clients. With eFolder cloud File Sync we get business-class features and a
HIPAA compliant storage cloud, allowing us to confidently deploy a cloud file
sync solution as a part of our fully managed service offering."
"We are pleased to be partnering
with Mezeo," said Kevin Hoffman, CEO, eFolder. "MezeoFile brings us powerful file sync and
collaboration software that has already been proven in the enterprise, and that
meshes perfectly with the scale and reliability of the eFolder Storage Cloud.
For over eight years, eFolder has been delivering channel-ready service
offerings by combining best of breed software tools with the eFolder Storage
Cloud. Mezeo is a welcome addition to eFolder's Open cloud strategy."
"We are proud to have eFolder join
our Service Provider program," said Rahul Bakshi, SVP sales and marketing, Mezeo. "Mezeo's software
solutions have strong alignment with eFolder's product strategy and great
reputation delivering enterprise grade, channel-ready services. The demand for
Mezeo's secure, compliant, and customizable File Sync and Share continues to
grow exponentially and we look forward to a long term, successful relationship."
