EMC plans to integrate Syncplicity with the Information Intelligence Group portfolio
Storage firm EMC has acquired cloud-based file management applications provider Syncplicity.
EMC plans to integrate Syncplicity with the Information Intelligence Group portfolio to enable organisations to leverage EMC’s enterprise content management, information governance applications and cloud storage.
The acquisition also extends EMC’s strategy of enabling the ‘New User’ in the Post PC era, those who want to access, share, collaborate and participate in business processes on their preferred device.
Syncplicity provides cloud-based sync and share capabilities required by enterprise customers and it will enable users to interact and share content on their device of choice with the security and governance IT requires.
The cloud-based file management firm will help organisations manage, sync, share and backup files across its’ extended enterprise, providing the tools they need to maximise productivity, protect their corporate data, and reduce infrastructure and support costs.
EMC Information Intelligence Group president Rick Devenuti said it believes that productivity and security are not mutually exclusive.
"In acquiring Syncplicity, we validate this concept by uniting enterprise ‘sync and share’ capabilities for the cloud with governance and rigor that is synonymous with Documentum," said Devenuti.
