SugarSync began operations in 2008 from San Mateo, California. Since then, it has attracted millions of users including major brands such as Lenovo, SanDisk, and more. SugarSync offers automatic syncing, cloud storage, and backup to individuals and businesses. At Sugarsync, the main focus is on creating a user-friendly, highly scalable product for both mobile and desktop systems.
SugarSync provides users access to all of their files from any computer or mobile device. Its latest iteration, Version 2.0, was released last year. One of the major advantages of SugarSync as a cloud storage and backup service is that it runs on multiple platforms including Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Mac OSX, Windows, Windows Mobile, and even on Samsung SmartTVs. SugarSync offers businesses a centralized IT dashboard with the ability to assign data limits and to monitor activity on their company cloud. Data can be removed remotely, and stored data is protected with 256-bit AES keys. All data is automatically backed up, and syncing occurs in real time, allowing employees access to specified company data from any device.
One consulting firm, The Center for Sales Strategy, needed a dependable, convenient data management solution that was compatible with multiple operating systems and mobile devices. It also wanted to minimize its risk of hardware failure and data loss. SugarSync provided an all-in-one solution, offering The Center for Sales Strategy consultants the ability to share documents regardless of location. Since implementing SugarSync, the firm has suffered zero data loss.
