Citrix ShareFile vs Syncplicity in our news:

2014. Citrix acquired digital signature service RightSignature



Citrix acquired RightSignature, the professional electronic document signing platform that marries Citrix's file storage, sync and sharing platform ShareFile. The two companies have been working together for the past year and integrated their solutions. Most users use ShareFile either with on-premises storage or to mobilize data in existing systems such as SharePoint or file shares. The integration with RightSignature helps users maintain security for confidential documents. RightSignature replicates the pen-and-paper signing experience in any web browser with an elegant, intuitive user interface. The integration is already available today as an add-on to all ShareFile accounts.


2014. EMC Syncplicity cuts prices



Forrester and Gartner call EMC's Syncplicity the best-in-class offering on the Enterprise Sync and Share market. But the company doesn’t want other factors to keep companies from embracing all that it has to offer. So EMC has bumped up storage limits for all of its offerings: Individuals with free personal accounts can now store up to 10 GB without incurring charges, subscribers to the business edition are allowed 300GB + 5GB/USER (with more available for a reasonable price), users of the departmental edition are allotted up to 1 TB without incurring extra charges, and storage on the Enterprise edition is unlimited, as it always has been.


2014. Syncplicity launches iPhone app expanding virtual private cloud capabilities



Cloud based file management service Syncplicity launched the new iPhone app that provides mobile access to all their files and folders, while meeting key business requirements such as security, backup and versioning. From their iPhone, Syncplicity users are now able to browse, share and manage all their files and folders, whether those files are stored on their PC, Mac, SharePoint servers, on the corporate network or in Google Docs.  This universal file access from iPhone includes shared Syncplicity folders set up for collaboration in businesses or sharing for personal use.  With Syncplicity, users can gain secure access to any file and folder anytime, eliminating the need to email file attachments or use laptops and VPNs to ensure access to all their files while mobile.  Syncplicity also makes mobile safe with built-in policy and permission controls, remote wipe, and complete end-to-end encryption for all data transferred, stored on the Syncplicity service, and stored on the mobile device.


2012. EMC buys file syncing service Syncplicity



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.
