EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced that EMC
Syncplicity has been positioned as a "Leader" by Forrester Research, Inc. in its
"The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013."
Forrester evaluated 16 of the most significant file sync and share providers across 26 criteria and recognized Syncplicity as a leader for its strong offering and solid strategy for success, receiving the highest score overall in content analytics, and the highest scores possible in security model, administration, content analytics, mobile strategy, sales staff, among other categories.
Forrester regards file sync and share a must-have capability stating, "file sync and share is borne of two requirements: the need to sync files on all devices and share files with colleagues and partners. These two capabilities cover scenarios ranging from email attachment replacement to file system replacement, from casual partner collaboration to compliant workflow in regulated industries."
In recognizing Syncplicity as a leader, Forrester states that EMC has created a strong offering by combining its global sales and service capacity with Syncplicity's solid capabilities. Forrester highlighted several strengths including security, and deployment flexibility. The report also noted that "EMC has done a good job of driving integration between Syncplicity and the existing
portfolio with content and workflow integration. So organizations with significant investments in EMC's
enterprise content management
system or EMC's
should give Syncplicity a hard look."
The Forrester report also notes that, "Syncplicity is a fit for organizations that require very tight control over content location – cloud versus on-premises – as well as fine-grained controls over the content itself."
