Intermedia Gives Microsoft Office 365 Users a New Way to Back Up and Manage Their Files

Intermedia becomes the only file management provider to combine real-time collaboration and file backup

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The market's first 2-in-1 business-grade backup and file sharing solution just got better. Under the Microsoft Cloud Storage Partner Program, SecuriSync® by Intermedia combines real-time collaboration and file backup, giving Microsoft Office 365 users a brand new way to manage their files.

SecuriSync by Intermedia combines real-time collaboration and file backup, giving Microsoft Office 365 users a brand new way to manage their files.

Intermedia introduces Office 365 integration with SecuriSync
More than 1.2 billion people around the world rely on Microsoft Office, and Office mobile downloads have reached more than 340 million, and counting. Through this integration, Office 365 and SecuriSync users can now:

  • Edit files simultaneously.
  • Open, edit and save files (Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint) directly from the SecuriSync web interface.
  • Work with files without having to download and install desktop software.
  • Accelerate collaboration by viewing changes as they are being made – in real-time.
  • Add file backup and restore capabilities to Office 365.

"Office 365 is the gold standard of productivity software," said Michael Gold, CEO at Intermedia. "The file backup and collaboration features of SecuriSync make it a great enhancement to Office 365. Knowing files are backed up and can be easily and quickly restored is tremendously important for users and decision makers, which is why many Office 365 users turn to SecuriSync as a file management add-on. With this new integration comes the ability to edit files simultaneously, together with secure sharing and real-time backup – things that everyone needs."

Rob Howard, director of Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. said, "We are excited to have Intermedia's participation in the Cloud Storage Partner Program to extend Office 365 productivity features to SecuriSync users and their file backup capabilities."

File management optimized for the channel
SecuriSync is designed for partners. Because it's available to resell as a gray-label brand, SecuriSync allows MSPs, VARs, and solution providers to fully control pricing and margins, billing, bundling, and other elements of their customer relationships. This integration makes SecuriSync an excellent add-on for Office 365 users looking to increase file backup and collaboration capabilities. SecuriSync can be added to any customer environment, and as part of Intermedia's Office in the Cloud™ suite of integrated business applications.

Intermedia's leading partner program makes it easy for partners to sell and manage across the entire customer lifecycle, and includes sales and marketing resources such as campaigns-in-a-box, J.D. Power certified 24/7 support1, onboarding, a 99.999 percent uptime service level agreement, and more.

"Files are one of the most important assets of any business. SecuriSync gives my clients the ability to manage all of their files in one place, making it an invaluable service," said Peter Hanna, CEO at Robo 6k. "By now adding real-time collaboration to SecuriSync's file backup and restore capabilities, I'm delivering a huge value-add to my client base, and under my own brand."

Availability
Office Online integration with SecuriSync is now available in North America to those with an Office 365 license2. Extended market availability is expected to follow in the coming weeks. SecuriSync is also available as a backup enhancement to Office 365, one of several Office 365 integrated solutions.

About SecuriSync by Intermedia
Instead of deploying multiple vendors for different aspects of file management, SecuriSync combines backup, files sync and share and real-time collaboration into a single offering. SecuriSync eliminates traditional cloud backup's weak spots, including eliminating versioning gaps due to scheduled backups; providing the ability to access, edit and share files using an alternate device should backups need to be restored; offering protection for mobile devices without extra costs; and avoiding multi-vendor complications due to compliance and eDiscovery.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Further, serverless computing, cl...
