Acronis Files Cloud now available in Giacom Cloud Market
Monday, March 26, 2018
The easiest file sync and share solution by Acronis has now launched in the Giacom Cloud Market. Available at an exclusive introductory price to cloud services resellers, Files Cloud gives your customers access to their files wherever and whenever they need it. If you’ve been looking for an alternative to Dropbox Business, OneDrive for Business and Box, it’s a great time to start pitching Files Cloud to your customers.
An in-demand solution
It’s fair to say that File Sync and Share (FSS) solutions have been in demand for many years. According to Skyhigh Network’s Cloud Adoption & Risk Report, the average end user switches between three file sharing apps while at work. While the risk associated with storing data in multiple file solutions is high, switching between solutions is often necessary due to the way businesses collaborate with each other.
Unfortunately, there’s no ‘one fits all’ solution, as each business will have their preferences. For example, your customer may prefer using Dropbox, but another company they are collaborating with on a project prefers to use Google Drive to store all their working documents. This constant chopping and changing is tiresome, but it’s become so habitual to end users that they eventually find a way around their grievances.
How is Files Cloud any different?
As an award-winning security company specialising in backup software, Acronis uses FIPS 140-2 encryption to safely store files in the UK Acronis Public Cloud and enables them for secure sharing via over-the-air or on-device encryption. This means it’s one of the most secure FSS solutions on a public cloud environment, rivalling OneDrive for Business in the market space.
Unlike most solutions, Files Cloud can also enable users to edit files within popular mobile applications such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, meaning they have full control over files when away from the office. Plus, should they accidentally remove a file they wanted to share, users can restore deleted files from the Acronis portal without any hassle.
Securely share files without worry
Controlling where your customer’s files are, who they’ve been shared with and how long they’ve been in the public cloud can be a nightmare for anyone who manages data. And if there’s no clear audit trail, it can take businesses days or weeks to trace back through the document’s history. But with Files Cloud, it provides your customers with a full view of their transaction history and an enterprise-grade audit trail, so that users can easily find where the document is, who it’s been shared with and how long they’ve had access to it.
There’s so many more things your customers can do with Files Cloud, including sending public links securely and integrating other APIs.
