Intermedia’s Leading File Sharing and Backup Application – SecuriSync – Now Includes Anti-Malware/Antivirus File Protection

Bitdefender advanced anti-malware and antivirus protection is now integrated with SecuriSync, at no additional cost, to provide an extra layer of protection to keep files and content safe and secure

Intermedia, a leading cloud communications and collaboration provider to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and the partners that serve them, has announced that its leading, enterprise-grade file sharing and backup solution, SecuriSync, now offers advanced anti-malware and antivirus protection. This new layer of security provided by Bitdefender, a market leader in the Endpoint Security market, continuously protects files and documents from advanced cyber threats – including viruses, ransomware, and malware – and will be available for free to all SecuriSync customers.

Taking malicious threats – including ransomware – head on
According to recent research published by Accenture and the Ponemon Institute, in 2017 the average cost of cybercrime globally climbed to†$11.7 million†per organization, a 23 percent increase from 2016, and†a 62 percent increase over the last five years. Companies in the U.S. experienced the highest total average cost at†$21.22 million.

And as cyber threats continue to grow, small and medium-sized businesses, unfortunately, remain a primary target of hackers. Just because an organization may be classified as an SMB doesn’t mean its sensitive information is any less sensitive than a larger organization. But due to many SMBs not having the proper cybersecurity tools and consistently implemented security protocols in place, SMBs’ data can be much more vulnerable to hackers than their larger counterparts.

As a leader in delivering and supporting easy-to-use, highly reliable, and highly secure cloud-based business applications, Intermedia is continuously looking for opportunities to further protect customers in an age where mobility and real-time digital collaboration can further heighten threats and breaches. By pairing Bitdefender’s award-winning anti-malware solution with Intermedia’s popular SecuriSync file-sharing and back-up product, Intermedia is offering a level of security and peace-of-mind that many other solution providers do not. As a pioneer in machine learning, Bitdefender currently protects 500+ million users worldwide and is a consistent leader in independent, third-party studies that compare the effectiveness of anti-malware and antivirus solutions.

“Cybersecurity and malware rightly remain a source of deep concern for businesses, and that is why we will continue to invest in new capabilities that provide the level of security that our customers and partners require to conduct business as usual. Integrating Bitdefender’s anti-malware protection within SecuriSync is just another example of that commitment,” said†Ryan Barrett, Vice President of Security and Privacy at Intermedia.

“We built SecuriSync with the intent of making it the extremely intuitive, reliable and secure file sharing and backup solution that SMBs were looking for, and that’s what we did,” said†Bojan Dusevic, Senior Director of Product Management at Intermedia. “But as technology continues to rapidly evolve, so do the number of threats posed to SMBs and their data. We are always looking to provide a worry-free experience to our customers, and now that we’ve integrated Bitdefender anti-malware protection into SecuriSync, we are offering something that other file sharing and backup products can’t claim – continuous and powerful protection against threats from malicious files. SecuriSync files are now automatically scanned to spot and detect advanced cyber threats, including ransomware, that are developed by attackers to gain access to documents and systems. Account administrators can choose to activate Bitdefender, and end-users don’t need to configure anything to enable this vital functionality,” said Dusevic.

As part of Intermedia’s commitment to our customers and partners, this new integration is being included at no additional cost. That means SecuriSync clients can easily enable Bitdefender from their HostPilot control panel.†And as with other Intermedia products, SecuriSync with anti-malware and antivirus protection is delivered with a 99.999% uptime service level agreement (SLA) and includes J.D. Power-certified 24/7 support.

Another terrific opportunity for partners
Channel partners know Intermedia for providing the products and services their customers are looking for, while also delivering to partners the opportunity to realize the strong margins, profitability, and greater customer confidence and loyalty†they†are looking for. This new solution is further evidence of that – with Bitdefender anti-malware and antivirus protection, partners can now better address security vulnerabilities for their customers by delivering a product that offers a higher level of protection for the same price.
