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.
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."
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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.
In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
