Recognized as Powerful and Easy-To-Deploy – Delivering Same Capabilities Expected From Public Cloud Service, with Management Control, Data Security, and Pricing Public Cloud Services Can’t Touch

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – July 16, 2015 — / — Connected Data™ today announced that it’s Transporter™, private cloud file sync and share storage appliance, has been named a Computer Technology Review Most Valuable Product (MVP) 2015 Award winner. Meticulously reviewed by theComputer Technology Review (CTR) editorial team across comprehensive criteria that included product innovation, functionality, and affordability, the Transporter stood out as a powerful, easy-to-deploy solution delivering all the capabilities expected from a public cloud file sync and share service, together with a level of management control, data security, and pricing that public cloud services can’t touch. Moreover, with the addition of its Network Storage Connector feature, Transporter now enables mid-to-enterprise class business organizations to transform their on-premise network-attached storage (NAS) systems into secure, private cloud file sharing solutions.

“After a thorough review, we have identified a select group of innovative technology solutions that represent the standout leaders in their respective categories – solutions which we think should be at the top of every IT professional’s evaluation shortlist,” said Kim Kay, Associate Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, WestWorldWide, LLC, publishers of Computer Technology Review and IT Security Journal. “We congratulate Connected Data on its well-deserved 2015 CTR MVP Award win.”

“We are honored to have been named a recipient of the Computer Technology Review 2015 MVP Award, as it serves as another tremendous validation that the Transporter private cloud file sync and share appliance delivers the capabilities your business demands, with an ROI that simply cannot be beat by any competitor – certainly not those in the public cloud space,” said Dr. Geoff Barrall, CEO and Founder, Connected Data. “More specifically, Transporter enables its users to instantly access, sync, and share files from anywhere in the world, on any device, while leveraging existing infrastructure in order to maintain data control and protection and minimize expenditures. And now, Transporter also enables its mid-to-enterprise business clients to transform on-premise NAS solutions into secure, private cloud file sharing solutions by providing end-to-end syncing between mobile device and corporate NAS.”

Barrall continued, “Like many of our clients, the CTR editorial team also recognized that another key differentiator for the Transporter is that data protection and availability is ensured for the long-term. Unlike today’s relatively undifferentiated public cloud services that compete on price, are losing a ton of money, and pose a real risk to their customers’ data security.”
