SpiderOak Blue Secure Enterprise Cloud Storage Launched
Offering three levels of plans
SpiderOak has just released its new business cloud storage service, to compete with the likes of Dropbox.
The company claims that SpiderOak Blue is the world’s first “truly private enterprise-class cloud storage system”, with security obviously being a major factor on the subject of storing business data inside the cloud.
There’s nothing complex about this safer storage offering, however, SpiderOak says that it’s just as user friendly, as its existing online storage and back-up solutions.
SpiderOak Blue takes security and information privacy so seriously that businesses using the system could be assured that even SpiderOak staff can’t access their information, not even under a subpoena.
There’s a different boon, in the case of centralised data management being provided to firms, so the IT department doesn’t should administer each user account separately.
Ethan Oberman, CEO of SpiderOak, commented: “Today’s companies struggle with the consumerisation in their IT infrastructures. When employees use consumer-oriented tools for enterprise purposes, they run the chance of revealing company data to applications and cloud infrastructure that guarantees neither privacy nor confidentiality.”
“SpiderOak Blue combines the convenience of use that buyers demand with a complicated enterprise system that lets companies retain full ownership over their data in a ‘zero-knowledge’ privacy environment.”
SpiderOak’s service is built with easy deployment and administration in mind, and comprises of 3 products. SpiderOak Blue is the fundamental secure storage platform for small to medium-sized businesses, with your next step up, Blue OpenLicense, placing data ownership inside the hands of end users. That’s aimed more at schools and universities.
The enterprise level solution, Blue Plus, uses an open source virtual machine, running at the company’s infrastructure, to facilitate the management and control of knowledge.
