EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced that EMC® Syncplicity has been positioned as a “Leader” by Forrester Research, Inc. in its July 2013 report, “The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013.” Forrester evaluated 16 of the most significant file sync and share providers across 26 criteria and recognized Syncplicity as a leader for its strong offering and solid strategy for success, receiving the highest score overall in content analytics, and the highest scores possible in security model, administration, content analytics, mobile strategy, sales staff, among other categories.
Forrester regards file sync and share a must-have capability stating, “file sync and share is borne of two requirements: the need to sync files on all devices and share files with colleagues and partners. These two capabilities cover scenarios ranging from email attachment replacement to file system replacement, from casual partner collaboration to compliant workflow in regulated industries.”
In recognizing Syncplicity as a leader, Forrester states that EMC has created a strong offering by combining its global sales and service capacity with Syncplicity’s solid capabilities. Forrester highlighted several strengths including security, and deployment flexibility. The report also noted that “EMC has done a good job of driving integration between Syncplicity and the existing Documentum portfolio with content and workflow integration. So organizations with significant investments in EMC’s enterprise content management system or EMC’s storage products should give Syncplicity a hard look.”
The Forrester report also notes that, “Syncplicity is a fit for organizations that require very tight control over content location – cloud versus on-premises – as well as fine-grained controls over the content itself.”
Syncplicity enterprise-scale, cloud-based online file sharing solution simplifies end-user deployment and administration with on-premise storage that gives IT complete control of the storage layer, while continuing to provide Syncplicity in the cloud. Syncplicity provides advanced enterprise IT features and connectivity to the enterprise content management systems. Recently, EMC announced new enhancements to the Syncplicity enterprise file sync and share solution, enabling organizations to further improve business efficiency, drive productivity and extend IT security and control with Syncplicity Shared Links and enterprise-grade mobile device management (MDM). With Syncplicity Shared Links, users can easily send large files to internal and external recipients directly from their local machine without having to rely on email attachments.
