The benefits of combining EMC Syncplicity online file sharing service with EMC on-premise storage include:
- Increased Productivity: Users can easily sync, access and share files with anyone, anytime, anywhere and on any device for new levels of productivity and agility while giving IT the security, visibility and manageability they need.
- Flexibility and Ease of Management: Enterprises will experience the agility and continuous innovation from deploying a cloud-based online file sharing solution for users while retaining complete control over data and storage resources. It combines the rich set of Syncplicity's administrative tools and security, compliance and policy controls to manage sync-and-share functionality along with the unmatched manageability, scalability and resiliency of EMC storage.
- Reduced Compliance Risk and Increased Control: Enterprise information will reside on EMC storage, situated on-premise, subject to IT security governance and protection policies. Files are not duplicated both on-premise and in the cloud. With the EMC solutions, data objects stored on premise remain on premise and within IT control.

"Today's IT pros need to securely extend file sharing solutions to support the mobility and collaboration needs of an increasingly mobile, dispersed and multi-device workforce. The marriage of Syncplicity with Isilon and Atmos expands the choices users have for how they accomplish that, providing options that range from fully cloud based to behind the firewall, and provide a single vendor solution to do so. These solutions will help IT meet the need for user collaboration, while maintaining tight control for IT and massive scalability for enterprise data. Compliance and control are critical to enterprises today, and can be hard to achieve while simultaneously providing the flexibility and ease of management that are necessary to enable today's agile enterprise. EMC is catering to the new demands of end users and IT departments alike with these new solutions."
