Ninefold offers secure ‘Dropbox-like’ cloud storage for SMBs
Monday, 30 April 2012 16:21
Cloud computing enterprise, Ninefold, has launched the Ninefold SMB Cloud Drive allowing SMBs with 1-100 users “to store, access and share data while keeping it secure, local and simply accessible.”
It joins the company’s Business Cloud Drive, released in February for businesses with greater than 100 users. It’s billed as “a competitively-priced Dropbox-style secure document storage/sharing service that incorporates the price of bandwidth in an effortless monthly plan. Just like the Business Cloud Drive it uses the Oxygen Cloud platform that underpins the Oxygen cloud storage service within the US.
However, unlike Dropbox, it comes with Role-based access controls with centralised administration and the facility to remotely wipe devices should one be lost, stolen or an employee leaves the business.
According to Ninefold “Compared with other, often free, public storage offerings, Ninefold SMB Cloud Drive offers customers secure, local data storage – particularly people with data residency, compliance and privacy concerns around online documents and knowledge. Typically, this includes organisations with specialised intellectual property, accounting and legal data, in addition to creative/digital agencies. “
There is an introductory offer until the tip of May and then standard prices kick in. Entry price is $39.99 monthly for 5 users, 50GB storage and unmetered bandwidth. Additional users are $11.99 per thirty days and extra storage capacity $19.99 per 100GB monthly.
