Nomadesk Forges OEM Agreement With Hostbasket, a Telenet CompanyTelenet Customers Gain Access to Easiest & Safest Cloud Storage & File Sharing Software as Part of Hostbasket's Growing Service Offering (October 05, 2009)
GHENT, BELGIUM and ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/06/09 -- Nomadesk, the easiest and most secure on-demand file sharing software, today announced a strategic OEM agreement with the largest provider of broadband cable services in Belgium -- Telenet. Under the agreement, Telenet's Hostbasket division, which is Belgium's largest hosting company, will begin offering its SOHO customers access to Nomadesk's technology. Telenet customers will receive the power of cloud computing at a nominal monthly service rate, which will allow them to share, edit, synchronize and backup important documents with as many team members as needed. The service includes a virtual file server that gives users online and offline access from anywhere, at anytime.
"The Nomadesk service will bring our customers new and secure ways to share files and documents in order to boost efficiency of all team members. It will also reduce the infrastructure cost for our customers dramatically and boost their agility," said Alex Van Overloop, CEO of Hostbasket. "We are extremely excited to work with the Nomadesk team to offer innovative and quality services to Telenet and Hostbasket customers."
Millions of people risk losing their unprotected, critical data every day. As the amount of unprotected data stored on multiple devices increases, it becomes harder to synchronize and easier to lose. Keeping data secure, synchronized, backed up and available can be expensive and require in-house IT expertise. Whether customers are online or offline, working at the office or on the road, the Nomadesk service allows business teams to secure, sync and share data with no limits or change in behavior. Each virtual file server acts just like a hard drive, storing important documents in one place with local and remote access from a PC, Mac or iPhone. Users simply drag and drop their docs into a virtual file server, and files are immediately encrypted, backed up and available for file sharing.
"An important criteria for working with Nomadesk was the security both in the confidentiality and encryption of our customers' data and the architecture for the storage infrastructure. The comprehensible rights management and remote wiping of data when a laptop is stolen are features that make the software one-of-a-kind," said Mr. Van Overloop.
Nomadesk Co-Founder and CEO Filip Tack said: "The Nomadesk/Hostbasket partnership is synergistic -- it gives Hostbasket's current SMB/SOHO service offering a boost, while broadening Nomadesk's user base. We have similar deals in the pipeline all over the world with wireless carriers, mobile device companies and other global SOHO service providers looking to expand their customer offering with our award-winning on-demand file sharing software."
