Syncplicity positioned furthest along in “completeness of vision” for second year in a row*
SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 28, 2015 –Syncplicity has been recognized as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS). According to Gartner, “EFSS has become a priority for organizations to enable a modern, digital workplace for employees, partners and even clients.” The selection follows on the heels of Syncplicity becoming an independent company after its acquisition earlier this month by private investment firm Skyview Capital.
Syncplicity was evaluated against competitors based on the ability to execute and completeness of vision criteria. The study represents a snapshot of the Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing market as of July 2015 and aims to help CIOs and business and IT leaders assess the right tools to support their needs.
“We believe it is an enormous validation for Syncplicity to be recognized by Gartner as a Leader two years in a row. It supports what we hear from our customers every day; we have a rich product that addresses their key enterprise file sync and share requirements of delivering a great and intuitive user experience that complies with the strictest IT security policies,” said Jonathan Huberman, CEO of Syncplicity. “As an independent company, we plan to build on this success by creating a broad ecosystem of partners aligned that share our goal to make file sync and sharing easy, secure and integrated with any organization’s IT platforms and systems.”
