Partners: Make file servers mobile with SecuriSync File Server Sync
File servers are still very popular with IT admins. It’s easy to see why: they are easy to secure and back up, the hardware is getting cheaper and cheaper, they offer a lot of control… but employees are left struggling. They can’t access files offline, they have to deal with VPNs to get to files when they’re working remotely, and the mobile experience is terrible.
For partners, file servers bring their own limitations: they offer only a break/fix model with project-based pricing and limited professional services opportunities.
Of course, we know that some clients will really want to keep their file servers, even as you try to convince them of the many advantages of the cloud. But it doesn’t have to be a black or white argument. You can provide cloud-based file collaboration AND enable clients to keep their file servers… with SecuriSync® File Server Sync.
Benefits for your clients
The benefits for your clients are twofold.
- Employees are happier because they are more productive and mobile – they can access their files from anywhere, on laptops and mobile devices, and they don’t have to deal with complex VPN setup or using an FTP site.
- Management is happier because you’ve given them secure cloud backup of their files in real-time with powerful point-in-time file restoration in case they get hit by ransomware or other data loss events.
Benefits for you
Of course, you benefit as well. Adding SecuriSync with File Server Sync to your portfolio provides more revenue and higher margins when you add it to your clients’ existing file server investments. You also have the ability to create managed services around ransomware file recovery. And of course, because you’re an Intermedia partner, we give you training, sales and marketing help, J.D. Power-certified 24/7 technical support, and onboarding assistance.
