Enterprise Strategy Group 'First Look' Review of PanTerra Networks' SmartBox Confirms Business Value of Integrated File Sharing and Unified Communications for Mid-Market Enterprises

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- PanTerra Networks, the leading provider of unified cloud services for mid-market enterprises, today announced that Enterprise Strategy Group's "First Look" review of the company's SmartBox confirms the business value of integrated file sharing and unified communications for mid-market enterprises. The analyst firm evaluated PanTerra's WorldSmart Solution which combines its cloud-based SmartBox file sync and share solution with the company's CloudUC unified communications service, concluding that the integration of the two in a business environment brings true value to enterprises and presents market differentiation in a crowded market space. Additionally, the extensive built-in security features and range of support options available within the centrally administered cloud-based platform further differentiates the combined solution and adds higher value for IT administrators.

Key findings from the "First Look" review include:

--  Compliance with the top five most important features for an online
    sharing and collaboration service for business:
    1.  Integration with existing applications
    2.  Ability to synchronize files across multiple device types
    3.  Scalability
    4.  End-to-end encryption
    5.  Sharing flexibility and ease of use
--  Support of multi-level sharing allows users to "explicitly" define
    shares and share users at any folder or subfolder level
--  Importing full contact information from Outlook, Google, Yahoo, or any
    generic *.csv file format
--  Built-in two factor authentication and remote login blocking for further
    security as more users integrate mobile devices into the workforce
--  Support of multiple administrators and multiple levels of
    administrators, for administration delegation across departments and
    locations
--  File upload performance is on par with the most popular online file
    sharing services (all of which were tested with the same file over the
    same network) and ahead of others ESG has tested

"Online file sharing is about more than accessing files from the myriad of end-user devices on the market today. It's about streamlining workflows for sharing and collaborating around files. ESG research has discovered that streamlining collaboration is a top reason for deploying these solutions for more than one in three surveyed companies using OFS solutions," said Terri McClure, senior analyst, ESG. "The value proposition of PanTerra Networks is clearly in its integrated communications/file sharing value. It is much more than just another file sharing solution. For IT departments looking to provide an integrated communications, desk and file sharing solution, this fits the bill nicely."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
