BUFFALO, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC), the leading provider of next-gen startpages, TV Everywhere solutions and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, has selected Savvis, a CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL) company and global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, to pilot a new cloud email offering that uses Savvis' colocation services.

Under the multiyear agreement, Savvis will provide direct access to managed security, structured cabling and consulting services through its reliable, carrier-diverse colocation facilities. Synacor will provide webmail services for CenturyLink's consumer Internet customers.
