What is ExchangeDefender LocalCloud?
ExchangeDefender LocalCloud is a completely cloud based file storage platform that provides multi-device sync, geographic redundancy and local storage. The ExchangeDefender LocalCloud system syncs across any device that has an agent loaded onto it and allows users to have access to files on every device no matter where they are, whether in the office, at home, or elsewhere. LocalCloud utilizes local caching on each machine which means users are not tied to an internet connection to access their data. With direct integration into the Microsoft Windows experience, users can access files and documents through a drive letter in Windows Explorer. This interaction mimics accessing a local hard drive or a LAN file server, making it familiar and easy for users to access their information. This allows for fast loading and utilizes the cloud to sync data across devices. The solution can be mapped for users as any drive letter outside of the C: drive letter, giving flexibility to partners in configuration.
LocalCloud is powered by the trusted ExchangeDefender platform; known for its robust features, military-grade encryption, and security protocols. The platform is the source of and provides protection for all of its email security, chat and web products. LocalCloud provides an exciting, new, local file sync feature, which allows clients to leverage the cloud service to synchronize documents across multiple PCs, while only accessing the cloud to sync information changes. This allows users to access their files and make modifications quickly, without waiting for files to download. By removing the need to manage files "in the cloud" with a limited functionality editor, ExchangeDefender LocalCloud is able to eliminate the problem which has plagued competing solutions. Data integrity, backup, and redundancy is also completely handled; by replicating data across multiple, secure data centers, LocalCloud provides a robust solution and adds an additional layer of security, with access to logs and security controls.
The major differences between competitive products are in the local caching from PC to PC, allowing immediate access on any machine; while built in security provides complete encryption of all files, and accountability provides logging, audit trails, as well as geographic redundancy.
With ExchangeDefender LocalCloud software, the behavior of the desktop does not change - files are still available locally and can be accessed as fast as any other file on the desktop. Sync, reporting and backups are done on the backend without client interaction and without purchasing expensive backup and encryption products.
ExchangeDefender LocalCloud Availability
ExchangeDefender LocalCloud is available through the ExchangeDefender Partner Program which provides branding and support in more complex environments. For businesses that require a local storage device, LocalCloud will have an available appliance option that will store all cloud files, documents, emails, and other content that is uploaded to the cloud, onto a local network device, (this option is slated for a Q4 release). With the transition of work taking place with and through the cloud, expensive servers and backup and disaster recovery solutions no longer make financial sense. ExchangeDefender has built LocalCloud to enable partners with the ability to deliver a solution that shifts the server component to the cloud, while keeping the documents local and accessible, giving small business user's access to their information in a manner in which they are used to.
ExchangeDefender LocalCloud is free and available for all new and existing ExchangeDefender partners. LocalCloud includes 1 GB of available storage for every configured user. Additional storage quantities are also available. The pricing for additional storage is provided only to channel partners through the ExchangeDefender Partner Program.
