Cloud Backup, File Sharing Now Easier Thanks to Intermedia
One of the major concerns (and drawbacks) to cloud adoption is the worry that if someone needs to access a file or document stored in the cloud, it will take too long to get it; or worse, that it won’t be there when needed.
Now, both of those concerns have been addressed and alleviated by an enhanced service that Intermedia offers--SecuriSync®.
Intermedia bills itself as a one-stop shop for cloud business applications. Its Office in the Cloud™ suite integrates the essential IT services that businesses need to do business—including email, voice, file syncing and sharing, conferencing, instant messaging, identity and access management, mobility, security and archiving.
Now, added to all that is SecuriSync, an affordable two-in-one solution that provides real-time back up and point-in time restoration for your computer. It’s comprehensive enough to accommodate businesses of all sizes.
According to the company, it can be deployed as part of Intermedia’s Office in the Cloud suite, as a standalone service, or as a complement to Office 365. SecuriSync contains additional file backup and sharing capabilities that integrate with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and other Microsoft Office apps.
“As users embrace file sharing and mobile devices, the deficiencies of traditional backup have grown clear,” said Michael Gold, CEO of Intermedia, in commenting on the rollout. “That’s why businesses have opted for two separate providers—one for backing up files and another for sharing and managing them. SecuriSync now bridges this gap with a single, cost-effective tool for using, managing and protecting user files.”
In addition to traditional cloud backup, the company notes that SecuriSync’s new features let channel partners offer additional value to their customers. “Partners can add new professional services, increase their margins above traditional cloud backup, and engage users deeper into the workflow to improve customer retention rates,” Intermedia said.
“I love how fast SecuriSync works to restore and back up files,” said Intermedia customer Charles Hausmann, VP of Specialized Services at Peloton. “It’s just another added benefit to using this service.”
