Soonr Workplace Praised by Leading Analyst Firm

Soonr, a leading provider of secure cloud-based mobile content management for business, today announced that Soonr Workplace, topped many end-user and IT-Administrator categories in a business-oriented “Online File Sharing and Collaboration Solution (OFS) Test Drive” conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), an integrated IT research, analysis, and strategy firm world-renowned for providing actionable insight and intelligence to the global IT community.

The assessment appeared in an “October 2012 Online File Sharing and Collaboration Test Drive.” ESG evaluated and compared 13 cloud-based online file sharing (OFS) services offering similar features, and ranks Soonr Workplace at the top of the list in a number of areas. With more than 125,000 current business users, Soonr is one of the fastest growing companies in the sector. “Our testers sometimes used words such as ‘perfect’ and ‘love it’ when evaluating this product—words not often otherwise heard from these testers who have examined and assessed so many OFS products.”

The Test Drive was divided into IT Administrator functions and End-Users functions. “Soonr Workplace excelled in many areas of the…Test Drive. It delivers several advanced features while providing an experience for administrators and end-users that is…simple and intuitive,”

Some of the highest praise was given by testers for Workplace’s mobile capabilities:

“…testers encountered no problems installing Soonr’s mobile app on their mobile devices, and opening and reading files was just as smooth for them. In fact, Soonr received the highest mobile device use rating of all solutions tested. End-user testers were especially happy with what they described as the “perfect” rendering of many types of files on their devices, and they reported that they ‘loved’ having an integrated way to edit them. They used the mobile app to perform tasks that included adding a slide to a presentation, then quickly propagating that new file to their synch folders on the website—doing it all without having to launch any third-party apps.”

“Our testers were extremely impressed that files stored in Soonr can be created, synched, and edited right from the Soonr mobile app (instead of downloading other apps to do the editing), remarking that any workers who travel will probably love Soonr Scribble, a way to annotate and comment on existing documents and save them as PDFs for collaboration.”

Evaluators expressed admiration for the ease of synching that Workplace provides…

“Our testers found that the Soonr synch agent delivers more data about users and their devices to an IT administrator than was the case with any other OFS product tested. The Soonr Workplace synch agent works elegantly, easily managing the synching of multiple and large files… Testers appreciated Soonr’s fast synch performance, even for files as large as 100MB…”

The report also praised the level of data and document security built in to Soonr Workplace:

“Soonr Workplace stands out with its file-locking capability to prevent version conflicts, its remote wipe capability to enhance security, its integrated editing function to assist mobile device users, and its ability to search for text within files.”

“The entire Soonr team is extremely grateful to Enterprise Strategy Group for including us in this Test Drive and providing this valuable unbiased assessment of all the business oriented Online File Sharing services on the market. This has given Soonr the chance to go head-to-head with some of our toughest competitors,” said Martin Frid-Nielsen, founder and CEO of Soonr. “We are delighted by the results, and very pleased with many of the insightful feedback offered by the individual testers.”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
