SpiderOak, a 'zero-knowledge' privacy cloud technologies company empowering file backup, sync and sharing from all devices including mobile, has announced that it will offer unlimited cloud storage to business users. The company is adopting an aggressively simple pricing model that will enable users to get unlimited storage space, endpoint devices, file sizes or historical versions with a flat fee of five dollars per month.
Ethan Oberman, CEO of SpiderOak, said in statement, "After analyzing the market and seeing the convoluted ways other providers use metered pricing for certain levels of storage, we believe the simplicity and flexibility of a flat rate model is the best approach and it continues to resonate strongly."
In addition, SpiderOak also launched a new enterprise-grade mobile application and enhanced enterprise management console.
By providing 'Zero-Knowledge' privacy approach, SpiderOak is allowing its clients to safely and securely put their sensitive data in the cloud while getting unlimited cloud storage and complete control and ownership over company data.
The main idea behind this simple pricing model is that the company wants to accept lower margins in some businesses but increase client base and overall earnings by going after a grab bag of growth opportunities.
The new SpiderOak Blue Enterprise Management Console 2 has been completely redesigned with a new, more user-friendly interface that provides greater management and control capabilities. It enables administrators to provision new users directly through the management console or the upload of .csv files, and delegated administrator access and reporting.
The company has designed a new mobile application specifically designed for enterprise users and it provides greater flexibility during deployment and will soon include options like remote wipe.
SpiderOak allows organizations to sync their data across any operating system and offers the most flexible deployment options, from hosted storage to an on-premise solution (deploying a Private Cloud behind an enterprise's firewall).
