Zimbra Acquires Mezeo for Secure File Sync and Share, Cloud Storage
|By Business Wire
|July 15, 2014 09:20 AM EDT
a global leader in unified collaboration software, today announced its
acquisition of Mezeo,
a software company that provides secure file sharing and cloud storage
capabilities for service providers, governments and companies worldwide.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. With Mezeo’s strong technology
portfolio, which includes patents that cover aspects of storage
efficiency and file security, Zimbra will expand its unified
collaboration suite with file-sync-and-share, reflecting its commitment
to secure and private collaboration.
“Secure file-sync-and-share is critical for today’s users, and it’s one
of the capabilities Zimbra customers request most often,” said Patrick
Brandt, CEO of Zimbra. “With the acquisition of Mezeo, we are expanding
our product offering to now include user-friendly file-sync-and-share,
while also enabling complete control over data, which provides
tremendous value to our customers and partners worldwide.”
According to Forrester, “With consumerization driving employees to bring
personal smartphones and tablets to work, employees’ need to synchronize
files grew from a whisper to a scream over the past few years.
Twenty-one percent of global information workers use file sync
solutions. The scream will grow louder as the number of tablets will
triple to 905 million by 2017 to join the billions of computers and
smartphones used for work.”1
MezeoFile, a file-sync-and-share application, and MezeoCloud, an
on-premise cloud storage platform, enable IT professionals to meet
security and compliance requirements while offering end users an
intuitive user experience that is comparable to easy-to-use consumer
file sharing technology. For service providers, Mezeo’s white label
offering allows for integration into existing services to simplify
delivery and speed time-to-market. Mezeo’s employees, who have vast
experience in developing software and managing relationships with
services providers, will join the Zimbra team.
John Eastman, CTO of Mezeo, said, “Today’s service providers demand
capabilities that are secure and private, but which also integrate into
existing systems, applications and processes. That’s why we built our
solutions to fight loss of control and business data leaks. Our features
and benefits complement Zimbra’s approach to security and privacy, and
together we will enable Zimbra’s customers and partners to launch new
file-sync-and-share functionality quickly and securely.”
Under the Zimbra brand, Mezeo software will continue to be made
available on premise and in the cloud through the company’s global
network of service providers.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
