SugarSync Announces Unlimited Storage, Unlimited Users and New Pricing for Business Accounts

SugarSync, a premium Cloud service that lets you access, sync and share all of your files and folders across all your computers and mobile devices, today announced a new pricing and capacity structure for its business accounts. The new SugarSync for Business plan includes a flat price of $550-per-year (or $55-per-month), which includes three users and unlimited storage.

In addition to uncapped scaling of Cloud storage capacity to meet a business’ growth and demand, companies can add an unlimited number of users at any time for $125 per additional seat, and with just a few clicks.

“Businesses of all sizes use SugarSync to accelerate productivity and collaboration,” said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. “We have witnessed the ultimate example of consumerization of IT over the past year, including tremendous adoption of our service by businesses that are storing more and more data in the Cloud each day. We want to allow companies of all sizes and their teams to have the capacity they need at an affordable price, without having to worry about quotas or storage.”

SugarSync enables its tens of thousands of business customers to easily access, sync and share business-critical folders and files from any device on any platform, even the desktop — without forcing users and groups to work out of a single folder like other solutions do.

SugarSync’s business plan features include:

  • Unlimited Storage - Scalability of capacity to meet the demands of businesses of all sizes.
  • Unlimited Users - New support for unlimited seats to meet the needs of large organizations.
  • Flexible Sync - Sync any file or folder across any device. Just select something to sync and forget about it; it works automatically in the background.
  • Collaboration - Send files of ANY size from any of your devices, to anyone. Choose read-only or add/edit permissions for everything you share.
  • Trusted and Secure - File transfers use TLS (SSL 3.3) encryption. Data is stored in multiple carrier-grade (SAS 70, Type II) data centers using 128-bit AES encryption.
  • Mobile Access - No extra charge for unlimited devices. Access your files using any Web browser or SugarSync mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, Blackberry, Symbian and Windows Mobile (with Windows Phone coming soon).
  • Admin Dashboard - Add seats at any time, monitor user activity, assign storage limits per account, and more.
  • Disaster Recovery - Backup, restore and sync your data after a hard drive crash. Multiple stored versions of every file. Full automated backup.
  • Free Live Support - Real, helpful humans. You can chat, email or use our toll-free phone support.
  • Easy Billing - Consolidate all those accounts. Single-point billing allows you to manage your billing online.
  • Outlook Plugin - Save email storage by sending links to files directly from Outlook instead of bulky attachments.

For those who would like to test drive the business service, SugarSync offers companies a free 30-day trial.

“SugarSync makes it seamless for our 130-plus users to all stay in sync, and to share and access data across groups and the entire company,” said Ryan Smith, Helpdesk Manager for RichRelevance, a provider of dynamic personalization for the world’s largest retailers. “It’s a very powerful, flexible and secure Cloud service that greatly enhances the way we do business.”

SugarSync recently unveiled its 2.0 version of the product, including new features that make it easier than ever for groups to share and find files. This includes drag-and-drop sharing; link sharing of large folders; a “SugarSync Drive” capability that allows users to see their entire SugarSync Cloud right in their file systems, and an enhanced search functionality to quickly search all folders and data on all computers and devices, as well as the ability to search content that other team members have shared.

Given the growth of its business offerings, the company is also hiring for its business sales and support teams.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
