Irish Company Launches Affordable Online File Sharing for Business

Dublin, Ireland, June 19, 2009 --( ftopia, a supplier of secure online file-sharing workspaces, launches its new offer which has been designed for use by small and medium businesses, professional organizations as well as free lance and home-workers.

Accessible 24/7, ftopia offers an easy-to-use solution, which requires no technical training or long and complex installation. ftopia provides storage, sharing and file management on the web. An integrated reporting feature allows for full traceability of workspace access history.

Several customers already trust ftopia and have chosen the service to help them share with their business network on a daily basis. Amongst them, Artus Lawyers use ftopia as their solution for preventing errors that can easily occur with email while sharing case documents with clients and colleagues. Also, Scan & Target, a fast growing start-up company selected ftopia to be able to simply and rapidly share documents internally and especially with their mobile workforce.

Secure access to spaces, or e-rooms, is guaranteed by member authentication. Members can only access after an invitation from the room administrator. A very easy to use authorization system defines each member's access permissions as well as allowing the ability to delegate administration tasks.

ftopia is secured (communications encryption and redundant infrastructure), reliable (usage and performance assured) and flexible (an adaptable workspace that can evolve constantly based upon changing requirements). Available anytime, anywhere, ftopia makes it possible for its customers to significantly improve their productivity. No more CDs to be burned or calls to courier services to be made when sharing heavy files with partners, suppliers and customers.

Available now in its web version, the service will soon be enhanced by directory synchronization functions under Windows and Mac OS, as well as by applications for iPhone, Blackberry and Android.

In the current context of the world economic crisis, market analysts and in particular Gartner in its last study, are optimistic with regards to the development of cloud computing. Gartner Inc. predicts a very important growth rate (+ 30% from here to 2013 for paid applications on line): “Worldwide cloud services revenue is on pace to surpass $56.3 billion in 2009, a 21.3 percent increase from 2008 revenue of $46.4 billion, according to Gartner, Inc. The market is expected to reach $150.1 billion in 2013.” (Source: Gartner - “Sizing the cloud, understanding the opportunities in cloud services” March 2009).

Indeed, choosing ftopia represents substantial savings for both companies and independent professionals. ftopia proposes to offer all inclusive rates (no hidden costs, support and maintenance included) starting from €25 per month for 5 private workspaces and 10 users.

ftopia is available today in English, French and Spanish.
