Video Blog: Catching Up with Syncplicity

EMC acquired Syncplicity in May of 2012. Since then the company has been pretty quiet when it comes to announcing new functionality. Not completely quiet - it announced a new enterprise edition, and support for on-premises storage (Atmos and Isilon) - though data needed to be migrated into the Syncplicity environment even for existing Isilon users. There were other announcements, like secure shared links. But in a crowded market where Box and Dropbox seem to dominate the airwaves, EMC needed to make a splash. The new Syncplicity functionality does. The client is intuitive and easy, and (hallelujah) now has integrated editing (something Soonr introduced years ago but that has been slow to be introduced across the board - Accellion, Citrix Sharefile, and Workshare now have it along with EMC, but it is a small group of vendors that do it. As a frequent tablet user I truly appreciate this). EMC also added information rights management (IRM) policies for shared files like read/write, copy, print, watermark, screen capture, etc., to protect corporate data. It added some more collaborative and social features as well as admin rights. Watch the video for more details from Jeetu and Dave - and keep an eye out for a brief we are publishing that covers the new product in detail.
