Company Updates

AeroFS named Cool Vendor by GartnerJust over two years ago, we launched AeroFS to bring secure collaboration to traditional enterprises, and this week, AeroFS was recognized by Gartner as a “Cool Vendor”. We’re thrilled and honored to be highlighted in this year’s report, an undoubtedly impressive accomplishment for our small team.

Naturally, we already think we’re pretty cool. It’s not something we go about saying to random strangers in the street or at tradeshows, “Hey you, come check out why we’re cool!” But when we talk about AeroFS outside of AeroFS, there’s usually that tangible “aha!” moment when we explain what makes us different and you can pretty much hear the person thinking, “Wow, that’s pretty cool!” Sometimes, they even say it out loud!

What is it that actually makes us cool? These are some of our own favorite cool-factors:

  • Smart Routing™ Technology – Enables sharing large files at line speeds by synchronizing files directly between users’ machines without having to upload to intermediate repository.
  • Flexible Storage Options – Your files stay wherever you keep them. We integrate into existing IT infrastructure by deploying an on-premise virtual appliance.
  • Email Attachment Manager – Inbound emails are stripped of attachments on the server side and saved to a predefined repository; outbound email attachments are replaced with a link.

But don’t just take it from us. If you want to know what Gartner thinks, read the report! If you’re already a Gartner customer, you can read it here (requires a login).

Not only are we proud to be recognized by a premier analyst firm, but the recognition and appreciation of our hard work from customers is evidenced by the impact our solutions have on teams of all sizes.

At AeroFS, we remain committed to solving real customer problems through innovative technology just as we did when we set out to provide a secure Enterprise File Sync and Share solution in 2013. The needs of our growing customer base continue to reveal a changing landscape in the way teams work together and we’re working to bring content to the center of collaboration.

We look forward to sharing an exciting new solution coming soon – stay tuned!
