PALO ALTO, Calif., May 16, 2016 – AeroFS, a leader in integrated collaboration solutions for the enterprise, today announced it has been recognized as a “Cool Vendor” in the Cool Vendors in Content Management, 2016 report by Gartner, Inc. The report points out that “By modernizing content management to enable stronger search and insight capabilities, IT leaders can optimize user productivity and collaboration.”

“We are honored by Gartner’s recognition for our solutions that we believe make enterprise file syncing and sharing (EFSS) easy and secure while also offering much higher performance, greater IT control, and significantly reduced cost of ownership,” said Yuri Sagalov, CEO and co-founder of AeroFS. “Our solution has achieved traction with world-class customers in health care, finance, automotive, telecom and other industries who are seeking to harness the benefits of workgroup productivity without sacrificing security. We are continuing to expand our suite of offerings to provide even more robust tools that will streamline the way teams and enterprises collaborate.”
