Intermedia Launches Secure File Syncing Beta Program

SecuriSync Enables Users to Safely Share Files Across Home, Work Computers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) - Intermedia, the global leader in Microsoft Exchange hosting, today announced a beta release of SecuriSync™ -- the company's proprietary file synching service. Available to hosted Exchange 2010 and hosted Exchange 2007 customers as a free beta, the file syncing service enables employees to share files across multiple computers. Employees can, for instance, work on a document on their office computer and then open the same document from their home computer. Changes made from either computer are synchronized to assure the file is always current.

"File synching is gaining in popularity because of its productivity benefits, but our customers -- many of them in professional services -- want options that secure the experience for employees," says Jonathan McCormick, chief operating officer, Intermedia. "We built SecuriSync to address this need. It runs over the same secure infrastructure that our Exchange hosting environment does -- and is managed from the same central point of control. For instance, our customers have the ability to disable an employee SecuriSync account. This prevents employees who are no longer with the company from making changes to data."

SecuriSync integrates with a company's Active Directory to add security that is critical to professional services firms and other organizations handling sensitive information. Intermedia customers can manage SecuriSync and the data stored on its servers from the same user-friendly HostPilot® Control Panel they use to manage hosted Exchange service.

SecuriSync's additional security benefits include encryption of user passwords stored locally, as well as secure traffic between the SecuriSync client and servers. Redundant servers with multiple nodes are used to operate the service, and data storage is based on SAN with regular backups. SecuriSync beta customers receive unlimited storage per user. Once SecuriSync is out of beta, customers will receive five GB of storage per user.
