Wakefield, MA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Filosync Corporation today launched Filosync, a secure enterprise file sync and share solution. Filosync enables users to collaborate on files in real-time, and enables IT to control and protect those files. Filosync client apps are available for Mac and iOS. Filosync Server software is available for both Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud deployment and on-premises deployment on a variety of operating systems.
Filosync employs a "trust no one" approach to security. All files are encrypted on the client device before being transmitted to the server. Encryption keys are never stored on the server. All data are protected in-transit and at rest with AES 256-bit encryption. Filosync Corporation has no access to the customer's servers, clients or data.
"Many users of Arq, our popular Mac backup solution, have been asking for a file sync and share product that gives them control of the server side," said Stefan Reitshamer, founder of Filosync Corporation. "They're not allowed to put corporate files in Dropbox or other SaaS offerings for regulatory reasons because they can't control what those SaaS offerings do with the files. We built Filosync to bring file sync and mobile access features to customers who need to keep their data under their control. We believe that getting the benefits of cloud computing and mobile access shouldn't require handing your confidential files over to a third party."
The server side of Filosync can run on-premises on the customer's hardware, or in the customer's AWS account. "Flosync's AWS approach is the best of both worlds," Reitshamer said. "You get the benefits of cloud computing in that don't have to buy or maintain any hardware, but you still have control because it's your AWS account, not the software provider's account. And your files are protected because everything's encrypted before it's even sent to AWS."
Filosync's licensing and operating approach also removes risk for the customer. Instead of a SaaS or subscription approach, Filosync software is purchased as a traditional software license, with 1 year of support and upgrades included; ongoing support and upgrades are available for an additional fee. "Business customers wanted this license instead of a subscription approach because it reduces risk for them," Reitshamer said. "They want to pay for ongoing support because support keeps being awesome, not because the software stops working if they don't pay."
Filosync's approach of giving customers full control extends to pricing and setup as well. Pricing is straightforward and listed on the company's web site. Product setup is simple and takes 5 minutes or less.
