Vaultize Named the Leader in Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS), Mobile Collaboration and BYOD by Frost & Sullivan

  1. 1. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Product Innovation Leadership, Secure File Sharing, Mobile Collaboration and Backup Platform for Enterprises, 2013 Frost & Sullivan’s Global Research Platform Frost & Sullivan is in its 50th year in business with a global research organization of 1,800 analysts and consultants who monitor more than 300 industries and 250,000 companies. The company’s research philosophy originates with the CEO’s 360 Degree Perspective™, which serves as the foundation of its TEAM Research™ methodology. This unique approach enables us to determine how best-in-class companies worldwide manage growth, innovation and leadership. Based on the findings of this Best Practices research, Frost & Sullivan is proud to present the 2013 New Product Innovation Leadership Award in Secured Cloud File Sharing, Mobility and Backup Platform for Enterprises to Vaultize for its Vaultize Enterprise Platform. Presented to Significance of the New Product Innovation Leadership Award Key Industry Challenges Addressed by Vaultize With the advent of the smartphones, there has been a massive proliferation of the mobile workforce in recent years. However, this exponential growth has posed challenges in the management of data captured from various connected mobile devices. Some of the challenges are listed below. © 2013 Frost & Sullivan 1 “We Accelerate Growth”
  2. 2. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Lack of IT control Endpoint data is rarely filtered or protected through automated backup or on-disk encryption systems. This absence of IT control makes sensitive information from enterprises more susceptible to leakage and data loss. Lack of security with third party cloud services Though cloud-based file sharing and sync services have revolutionized methods of information sharing and data access, the consumer-centric system of the third party cloud is not adequate enough to protect sensitive information of enterprises. Deploying consumer cloud services for the purpose of enterprise data sharing incurs significant data loss and poses regulation and compliance risks to the organization. Need for a more flexible approach Unlike consumer cloud services, corporate file servers and content repositories are guarded with a high level of protection with controls. Hence changes in access patterns from mobile devices become important. This has generated the need for a more flexible approach to unify the data access technique irrespective of the location of data either from corporate file servers or consumer cloud. Mobile users now demand for the same method to access data from corporate file servers as that from consumer cloud. Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) trend Explosion of mobile devices have empowered millions of user to pick their smartphones and tablets for work related activities as well. Employees see this as benefit towards improved productivity, increased responsiveness and quick decision making. Companies are now forced to adopt formal BYOD policies, lack of which may jeopardize their sensitive data, exposing it to leakage and security risks. © 2013 Frost & Sullivan 2 “We Accelerate Growth”
  3. 3. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Impact of New Product Innovation Award on Key Stakeholders The New Product Innovation Leadership Award is a prestigious recognition of Vaultize’s accomplishments in Secured File Sharing, mobility and Backup platform for Enterprises. An unbiased, third-party recognition can provide a profound impact in enhancing the brand value and accelerating Vaultize’s growth. As captured in Chart 1 below, by researching, ranking, and recognizing those who deliver excellence and best practices in their respective endeavors, Frost & Sullivan hopes to inspire, influence, and impact three specific constituencies: • Investors Investors and shareholders always welcome unbiased and impartial third-party recognition. Similarly, prospective investors and shareholders are drawn to companies with a well-established reputation for excellence. Unbiased validation is the best and most credible way to showcase an organization worthy of investment. • Customers Third-party industry recognition has been proven to be the most effective way to assure customers that they are partnering with an organization that is leading in its field. • Employees This Award represents the creativity and dedication of Vaultize’s executive team and employees. Such public recognition can boost morale and inspire your team to continue its best-in-class pursuit of a strong competitive position for Vaultize.

  4. 4. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Key Benchmarking Criteria for New Product Innovation Award For the New Product Innovation Award, the following criteria were used to benchmark Vaultize’s performance against key competitors: • Innovative Element of the Product • Leverage Leading Edge Technologies for Mobility and BYOD • Flexible Deployment Options • Increased Customer ROI • Customer Acquisition/Penetration Potential Decision Support Matrix and Measurement Criteria To support its evaluation of best practices across multiple business performance categories, Frost & Sullivan employs a customized Decision Support Matrix (DSM). The DSM is an analytical tool that compares companies’ performance relative to each other with an integration of quantitative and qualitative metrics. The DSM features criteria unique to each Award category and ranks importance by assigning weights to each criterion. The relative weighting reflects current market conditions and illustrates the associated importance of each criterion according to Frost & Sullivan. Fundamentally, each DSM is distinct for each market and Award category. The DSM allows our research and consulting teams to objectively analyze each company's performance on each criterion relative to its top competitors and assign performance ratings on that basis. The DSM follows a 10-point scale that allows for nuances in performance evaluation; ratings guidelines are shown in Chart 2.

  5. 5. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH This exercise encompasses all criteria, leading to a weighted average ranking of each company. Researchers can then easily identify the company with the highest ranking. As a final step, the research team confirms the veracity of the model by ensuring that small changes to the ratings for a specific criterion do not lead to a significant change in the overall relative rankings of the companies.

  7. 7. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Criterion 1: Innovative Element of the Product Consumer grade file sharing and backup solutions pose potential security threats and data loss risks when used in an enterprise environment. Towards addressing these issues, Vaultize provides a unified platform for file sharing/sync, encryption and endpoint backup, and offers seamless access to corporate file servers providing visibility and control to enterprises. Being an integrated platform, Valutize negates the need for deploying solutions from multiple vendors in an effort to provide various functionalities. Viz-a-viz competing solutions that offer encryption only after the data is received at the server end, Vaultize implements its patent-pending encryption and de-duplication technology (both at source) which makes the data unreadable and unrecognizable even before it leaves the user device. Encryption facilitates in delivering secured file sharing and data backup to customers whereas de-duplication algorithm implemented at source ensures minimal amount of data transfer over network – very important for mobility. To further bolster its performance, the company offers an on-disk encryption technique, which protects sensitive information of customers on endpoints from unauthorized access and data leakage. Even in the case of device loss or theft, on-disk encryption ensures protection of data at rest. To handle data on the move, Vaultize encrypts customer data at the source device itself before transmitting them through a highly secure SSL connection during sharing, backup and syncing files. In addition, Vaultize also authenticates every communication of the network using the open standard for authorization (OAuth) to further bolster security. All the above-mentioned innovative elements of the solution ensure complete security for the owner of the data while it is at rest, while being transmitted over the wire and also when it is stored on the Vaultize server. The solution also allows users to configure access rights on the data for select members while using ‘Group sync’. Group sync, which is used for collaboration with other members in the network, demands additional protection to control sensitive information of enterprises from unknown users. Vaultize allows the owner of the data to set an access password and/or set an expiration date of the shared information. This ensures that only the configured members are allowed to view data and/or modify them if the owner permits. © 2013 Frost & Sullivan 7 “We Accelerate Growth”
  8. 8. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Criterion 2: Leverage Leading Edge Technologies for Mobility and BYOD With the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend amongst organizations, firms are on the lookout for a secure solution that can allow access and sync with corporate networks from any location at any time. This is facilitated by the mobility support of Vaultize, which allows users to sync data across multiple mobile devices from corporate file servers and Network-Attached Storage (NAS). Viz-a-viz competing solutions that incorporate additional solutions to access mobile devices, the solution from Vaultize has an in-built component for the same. This feature reduces cost and adds a layer of convenience for deploying Vaultize enterprise platform. Unlike other solution providers, Vaultize has a clear focus on striking a good balance between requirements of IT and individual users. It helps IT mitigate security and data loss risks, at the same time transform the operations into user-centric enterprises that empower employees with productivity tools to deliver more value to business. Vaultize allows secure access and sharing of data from endpoints, including smartphones and tablets, even when beyond corporate firewalls and without requiring VPN. This is possible because of the way Vaultize encrypts data at source and creates and end-to-end tunnel and relays data securely to the endpoints in a very similar way Blackberry enterprise server relays emails from corporate servers to handheld devices. This significantly enhances the value proposition of Vaultize – particularly for the enterprises looking to adopt formal (BYOD) policies. Criterion 3: Flexible Deployment Options Vaultize is clearly focusing on providing the solution to meet every enterprise’s need in terms mitigating data loss and security risks. Unlike most vendors that provide cloud-only deployment, Vaultize provides you the flexibility to choose deployment options— Vaultize public cloud, enterprise-grade appliance series, and private cloud/on-premise. Further, Vaultize offers Data Privacy Option (DPO) – an innovative concept through which Vaultize lets its enterprise customers retain the full control over encryption keys. With DPO, the encryption keys are never stored on any infrastructure that is not under enterprise control – ensuring that the customer is in complete control of privacy of data and, ownership of data is retained by the customer. This helps enterprises eliminate data privacy, data residency (sometimes known as data sovereignty) and data protection concerns – and hence further strengthening the security. And, Vaultize is the only vendor that provides this type of option. © 2013 Frost & Sullivan 8 “We Accelerate Growth”
  9. 9. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Criterion 4: Increased Customer ROI and Lower TCO By offering a cost benefits, improving flexibility and reliability the solution enhances returns for enterprises that invest in this solution. Cost Benefits Incorporating all the major security functionalities within a single backup solution helps organizations in reducing costs significantly compared to the module deployment model adopted by competing solutions. De-duplication at source enables minimal amount of data transfer over the network, thereby indirectly reducing cost from 90% reduction in bandwidth usage compared to the traditional approaches. Vaultize includes an intelligent de-duplication algorithm which recognizes widely used file formats such as Zip, Microsoft Office, PST and PDF. This helps reducing the file size for minimal bandwidth usage during data transfer. Flexibility Vaultize file sharing enables easy and fast sharing of links for large files instead of attachments within e-mail. The automatically generated URLs for every file stored in the Vaultize cloud can be easily shared with members along with required access rights. Link sharing provides flexibility of saving bandwidth and time significantly for enterprises. Reliability The advanced security technology incorporated within the solution ensures protection of sensitive data against security breaches and data loss. It also ensures compliance with regulations and corporate policies, thereby considerably reducing risks of monetary and asset loss for enterprises considerably. © 2013 Frost & Sullivan 9 “We Accelerate Growth”
  10. 10. BEST PRACTICES RESEARCH Criterion 5: Customer Acquisition/Penetration Potential With the presence of a competent worldwide network of partners, Vaultize reaches out to customers in major markets such as North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Vaultize leverages its strategic alliances with several key companies from different industries to utilize their sales reach and business relationship in order to distribute Vaultize across the globe. The company is also focused with its Reseller Partner Program, where partnerships are established with industry participants towards channelizing Vaultize to their customers. The growing trend of utilizing mobility and BYOD has opened up new opportunities for Vaultize to benefit from partnerships with system integrators and IT service providers. Incorporating next-generation file sharing and data protection solutions from Vaultize helps system integrators to offer secure services and solutions to their customers, ensuring better return of investment for the clients. In addition, inclusion of Vaultize into their solutions also expands the product portfolio for system integrators and IT service providers. Apart from the above-mentioned key partnership programs for the distribution of the innovative Vaultize solution, Vaultize also utilizes additional programs, such as the Managed Service Provider (MSP) Program and ISV Program to reach a wider customer base across industries around the world. Conclusion Enterprises face huge bottlenecks in controlling sensitive corporate data while sharing and backing up information on the cloud. To address this challenge, file sharing and mobility solution provider Vaultize (earlier known as Anoosmar Technology) has developed Vaultize enterprise platform, that leverages its proprietary patent-pending encryption and de-duplication technology implemented at source to provide advanced security and backup facility for businesses of all size. Vaultize is well positioned to gain attention in the market in the next 1 to 2 years, leveraging its strong partnership programs across the globe.
