Ricoh, Syncplicity partner to drive mobile file sharing

Syncplicity said it has announced its strategic partnership with Ricoh Americas Corporation.

Through the partnership, Syncplicity expands Ricoh´s portfolio of services that help organizations access and share information anytime, anywhere to realize the benefits of information mobility.

Syncplicity is an enterprise-grade file sync and share solution with an award-winning user experience that gives users secure and easy access to files anytime, anywhere, on any device, while giving IT the security, manageability, and control it needs through a policy-driven hybrid cloud.

According to Osterman Research, 68 percent of business users are storing work-related information in a personally managed FSS solution — without visibility or approval from IT. Syncplicity offers organizations an enterprise-class tool that not only enhances user productivity, but also has industry-leading security and compliance features such as a policy-driven hybrid cloud, native mobile device management (MDM) and rights management to ensure data security. Further, recent upgrades have extended Syncplicity´s native MDM capabilities to deliver unmatched mobile data protection.

Syncplicity is a leading enterprise-grade file sharing and mobile collaboration solution that provides users with the experience and tools they desire and gives IT the security and control it needs. Some of its customers include Texas A&M University, Merck, the Associated Press and the Boston Red Sox. In July 2015, global private investment firm Skyview Capital acquired a majority stake in the company from storage giant EMC.
