2012 - EMC buys file syncing service Syncplicity. Citrix ShareFile is in panic


Dropbox for business continues to conquer the Enterprise. EMC, the developer of the largest and most complicated enterprise content management system Documentum, has acquired the small file storage and syncing service Syncplicity. It's assumed that this service will enable Documentum users to work with files stored in the ECM system from their mobile devices. It's interesting that EMC has a daughter company - VMWare, which is developing its own similar service Project Octopus, but apparently, the EMC could not wait any longer, because it's an urgent issue. Indeed, the main competitor on the ECM market - Open Text has already launched such a file syncing service Tempo in the beginning of the year. Syncplicity - is one of the oldest DropBox competitors. While this startup hasn't achieved such popularity, but it was originally more business-oriented and its security features much stronger than in DropBox.
