Spring Release 2018: What’s New

What’s new with Syncplicity? 

The Syncplicity product and engineering team has been busy building new enterprise features.  We continue to innovate across four pillars that drive value for our customers:

  • Innovative User Experience, the user
  • IT Modernization, IT
  • Advanced Data Protection & Security, Security + Governance
  • Ecosystem Collaboration, Developers

You'll see that the Spring Release brings some very exciting features that empower the entire Syncplicity ecosystem from administrators to users, but this release has a strong emphasis Innovative User Experiences (user) and Ecosystem Collaboration (developers).

Watch the webinar “Spring Release: What’s New with Syncplicity”.

Innovative User Experiences

Power + Usability

This spring, we released an improved desktop experience, one that is both innovative and powerful.  We have combined the strength of multi-folder sync (the ability to sync any folder on your desktop to the cloud) with the power to seamlessly stream files from the cloud to the desktop. 

With this release, you have the benefits of multi-folder sync like real-time backup, recovery from Ransomware combined with streaming files from the cloud without using storage – accessing millions of files without consuming storage.

Available on Syncplicity Windows App 5.4.0, not currently available on Mac. 

Folder Insights + Notifications 

With our new notifications users have more visibility into their folders and files than ever before.  With notifications and digest, that users can set for daily, weekly, monthly – users receive an update that summarizes activity.  At a glance – users can see what content has been shared, re-shared, changed and deleted.

Removing the guesswork.  These types of features help users in subtle yet, powerful ways from understanding personal collaboration activity to knowing who is responsive, to being alerted to changes in a file so that you can keep abreast of new content.

External Sharing
As we continue to evolve our sharing models, to address our customers’ need to provide users with secure sharing, external sharing is a top priority. We address three levels of sharing – Internal, Affiliate and External.  Now, users can easily view from Syncplicity online if their folder is being shared with an external partner, internal or if the folder has been shared by an external partner. This helps users manage external collaboration and sharing – helping avoid data leakage while giving IT more granularity over external sharing.

This features requires activation, please contact your Syncplicity Customer Success Manager.

Advanced Data Protection

Improved Security for Regulated Industries
For security conscious industries, we now offer client certificate based authentication for Syncplicity Windows App and the Syncplicity web client. This additional level of security supports using client certificates allowing mutual TLS/SSL authentication against Syncplicity storage. Only users with the correct certificate installed will be able to access corporate data.

This new feature ensures only trusted devices can access company data, providing heightened security. 

Customer owned encryption keys is also available in a controlled release for customers and prospects, giving you, the customer, ultimate control over your encryption keys, ensuring no unauthorized 3rd party can access your company files.

Application Whitelisting – Control Access to Syncplicity API
Prevent unauthorized applications from accessing data from Syncplicity.  Administrators have the ability to enable and disable application whitelisting and specify application keys to whitelist. Giving companies the control over what applications connect to Syncplicity and the ones to be blocked.I

Define specific capabilities for applications accessing Syncplicity.

Application Scopes
With this features customers can limit what API calls are made to the Syncplicity API. Applications Scopes provide control over Syncplicity’s APIs that an application can call, providing Enterprises complete security and control based on their security policies for external applications on each of the APIs.
