CEO Yuri Sagalov and Marketing VP Jeff Harrell to Present at Gathering of CIOs and Senior IT Executives

PALO ALTO, California – September 30, 2015 – AeroFS, the leading provider of private cloud collaboration solutions for the enterprise, today announced it will be speaking and exhibiting at the Gartner Symposium/ ITxpo 2015 in Orlando, Fla., October 4-8. During the symposium, billed as the world’s most important gathering of CIOs and senior IT executives, AeroFS CEO and founder Yuri Sagalov and AeroFS vice president of marketing Jeff Harrell will speak about how the company’s private cloud enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) and collaboration solutions meet the challenge of boosting team efficiency while protecting company data.

“Employee-led adoption of cloud services is great until it runs into the security and data sovereignty implications of the public cloud, and most enterprises lack enforceable policies that address cloud-based file sync and share solutions,” said Yuri Sagalov, CEO and founder at AeroFS. “Our private cloud EFSS and collaboration solutions address these challenges by placing everything behind the enterprise firewall, eliminating the tradeoff between ease of use and security while enhancing user productivity and efficiency.”

  • Jeff Harrell will speak on October 7 at 2:45 p.m. in the Emerging Technology Pavilion Theater, “Satisfying InfoSec and Employees: EFSS on Your Own Infrastructure.”Attendees will learn how AeroFS secure enterprise file sync and share and collaboration tools keep company data private while enabling users to work more efficiently.
  • Yuri Sagalov will speak on October 8 at 12:00 noon in ITxpo Theater C, “EFSS and Collaboration Tools that Make Users and InfoSec Happy.” Attendees will learn how AeroFS secure enterprise file sync and share and collaboration tools meet the robust security requirements of today’s savvy organizations while simultaneously enhancing user productivity and efficiency.

Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015 attendees in Orlando are also invited to visit AeroFS on the exhibition floor at booth # ET43. AeroFS staff will be on hand to discuss attendees’ current business challenges and show them how they can use AeroFS Private Cloud ESSF solutions to enable their users to share files easily while avoiding the security and privacy risks of public cloud services.

About AeroFS

AeroFS delivers a highly secure, enterprise-class file sharing and synchronization solution that enables enterprises to better control and secures enterprise data and increase collaboration among users. Like Dropbox and other online file-sharing offerings, AeroFS users simply drag and drop files into an AeroFS folder to sync and share with colleagues and external collaborators. Unlike those offerings however, AeroFS is deployed on the enterprise’s own infrastructure, so enterprise data stays under company and IT control. Files are shared directly between users’ devices, and enterprise data never resides on AeroFS servers. The company has 50,000 customers across 2,000 organizations and is funded by blue-chip investors, including Avalon Ventures, Andreessen-Horowitz, Y Combinator and others.
