Picture it: an employee wants to easily share company documents, so they sign up for any one of the big popular sync and share services without their boss’s knowledge.
This means the company’s data is now being stored in a location that is totally unfamiliar to either internal IT or an IT service provider and it’s not clear how well the data is being secured. Once that employee leaves the company, all that sensitive data could potentially go with them.
This is the scenario we can help MSPs avoid with Intronis ECHOshare, the new business-grade file sync and share solution for SMBs. And it’s a pain point you can easily address to take advantage of the growing enterprise sync and share market.
CRN Magazine spoke to this opportunity back in the spring. According to the report, file sync and share is becoming much more popular in the channel -- primarily because IT services providers recognize the demand for secure, centrally managed file sharing.
The real problem you need to address for your customers is that they are losing control of their data. Any attempt to be defensive – by banning sync and share products or resisting BYOD in the workplace – is often met with backlash. That’s because employees will do whatever it takes to make their jobs easier, even if it means skirting company policy.
The channel, CRN explains, is uniquely positioned to help SMBs take an inclusive approach to file sharing and management – and profit from this new potential revenue stream. The report cited Osterman Research data that says the market for file sync and share will expand by a compound annual growth rate of 5.7 percent by 2017.
