‘Gartner Cool Vendor’ Joins Dropbox Partner Network
ANN ARBOR, MI Nov. 4, 2015 – SkySync, a Gartner ‘Cool Vendor’ that enables organizations to easily integrate content with disparate storage platforms to Cloud services, today announced it has been selected as a Dropbox Premier Partner. The company is among an elite group of vendors to achieve Premier Partner status and has been selected for its ability to help enterprises securely sync, migrate or backup files to Dropbox with ease.
As a Premier Partner, SkySync will have elevated vendor status with Dropbox’s worldwide customer base that consists of 400 million users and 130,000 organizations that utilize Dropbox for Business. Given its Premier Partner status, SkySync will maintain a dedicated technical point of contact to evaluate early adoption opportunities for new Dropbox features and provide feedback on the API development roadmap.
Enterprise customers of Dropbox for Business, such as SkullCandy, leverage SkySync to easily bridge their on-premises storage systems – including Network File Systems, SharePoint and Enterprise Content Management platforms – with Dropbox in minutes, with zero coding. Now, enterprises can tightly integrate a wide range of storage systems with Dropbox without the hassle of time-consuming custom coding to do everything from increasing file transfer rates to automatically mapping file versions, user accounts, file properties and/or file permissions with a mouse click.
In addition to automating permissions, user account linking and network user home-drive mapping, SkySync eliminates restrictions on file name characters, file name length and file types. These restrictions – which affect Microsoft® SharePoint®, Office 365® and most other storage systems – are overcome by automatically transforming file names so file transfer operations run flawlessly.
“Being named a Dropbox Premier Partner is a significant milestone,” said Mark Brazeau, CEO of SkySync. “The joint customers we share with Dropbox are realizing the many benefits afforded by cloud storage agility, namely greater collaboration. We play a pivotal role in making this transition from on-premises to Dropbox completely seamless. The global market opportunities with Dropbox are enormous and we’re looking forward to furthering our partnership as we head into Q4 2015 and beyond.”
SkySync streamlines cloud adoption by enabling organizations to easily integrate content from existing storage platforms. SkySync makes it simple to migrate on-site system files and associated data across platforms or create fully bi-directional, synchronized hybrid storage scenarios. Architected for any size environment, SkySync is deployed at 1500+ businesses worldwide and across a wide range of industries. For more information, please visit www.skysync.com.
