Small- and medium-sized businesses are about to get a huge boost in cloud storage options as Cbeyond launches TotalCloud File Storage, offering security and functionality.
The company says the new cloud storage will provide simple and secure platforms for businesses of all sizes. In addition to secure and compliant cloud file storage, it offers sharing and backup services for business media and data.
With the cloud service world growing fast as more users and businesses head into the cloud and want security for their files, the move should be a boost for the company in the ongoing battle for market supremacy.
According to the company, it will be demoing the new TotalCloud File Storage at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. Observers are already excited about the possibilities of a more integrated and innovative cloud storing service that caters to SMBs.
Cbeyond has been pushing forward on cloud technology of late and the TotalCloud File Storage (TCFS) "provides a simple, intuitive and affordable solution to store, share and access confidential files with top-level security."
That should be a huge boost for those interested, especially after cybersecurity concerns have risen over the past few months with a number of hackers getting personal data from the largest online companies, including eBay.
According to a 2013 Cbeyond Business Leader Snapshot survey, more than four in five SMB leaders said that security, productivity and collaboration software were most important for their business. Now, Cbeyond is hoping that its new cloud service will deliver on all those ideas to help businesses grow and function more smoothly.
"TotalCloud File Storage is designed to address the needs of today's dynamic businesses as it lets teams work more collaboratively, remotely and securely," said Drew Kimball, director of product management for cloud services at Cbeyond.
"With easy scalability, customization tools and common-sense pricing, it can be invaluable for SMBs of any size that need reliable, anytime, anywhere access to business data and files," he added.
With more and more companies entering the cloud service market, or existing companies updating and upgrading their service, Cbeyond knows that it needs to act quickly to get a piece of the sector.
"The evolving cloud market for SMBs requires a new partnering approach, which represents exciting opportunities for both Cbeyond and Microsoft as we explore a new model that targets and recruits more Microsoft partners more effectively," said Chris Gatch, CTO of Cbeyond.
"The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference is also a great venue for partners seeking to get a first look at new, highly scalable cloud-based services such as Cbeyond's TotalCloud File Storage."
The conference runs through July 16 in Washington, D.C., at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
