Code42’s SharePlan Named an “Innovator” in Aragon Research Globe™ for Mobile Content Management

Report recognizes enterprise file sync and share solution for its “strong security options,” calls it “ideal for enterprises who have stringent security requirements”

Minneapolis — Oct 20, 2014 

Code42, the leader in endpoint data protection and management for business and enterprise, today announced that its SharePlan enterprise file sync and share solution was recognized as an “Innovator” in the “Aragon Research Globe™ for Mobile Content Management, 2014”¹ report dated Oct. 15, 2014.

The Aragon Research Globe is a market evaluation tool that graphically depicts Aragon Research’s evaluation of a specific market and its component vendors. The report reviewed 20 eligible vendors who offer mobile content management (MCM) solutions, and evaluated their respective abilities to securely manage content in the cloud, on mobile devices and on-premises. Code42 was recognized as an “Innovator” for its strong security model and unique go-to-market strategy. Unlike other enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) providers, Code42 offers secure, on-premises file sync/share and endpoint backup on an integrated platform with all user data managed from a single, intuitive admin console.

“By tapping into its deep experience in secure data backup and recovery, Code42 developed an enterprise-ready file sync and share solution offering strong mobile content security options, including the option to keep encryption keys onsite,” said Jim Lundy, founder, chief executive officer and lead analyst for Aragon Research. “Code42’s SharePlan is ideal for those enterprises facing stringent data security requirements, and those reluctant to use a public cloud offering.”

“Our customers value SharePlan’s ability to support their strictest security and compliance requirements while delivering an easy-to-use application that drives productivity,” said Mitch Coopet, co-founder and head of product at Code42. “Unlike other EFSS options that force organizations to choose between security and usability, SharePlan gives them both—in a single platform that can be deployed on-premises.”

Code42 is a proven leader in endpoint data protection and management—its CrashPlan enterprise endpoint backup solution protects the data of more than 30,000 business customers worldwide. As the report points out, “Code42 isn’t really new in MCM, since it has been doing content management for all files living on the device with its CrashPlan backup offering for over five years.”

SharePlan and CrashPlan are two unique applications—solving two very different business problems—powered by the Code42 EDGE Platform, which is an attractive model for modern IT teams. The report continues, “Code42 represents a new trend where enterprises that are looking for overall endpoint backup and recovery may also buy MCM capabilities as well.”
