Synacor Inc. (NASDAQ: SYNC), today announced a significant expansion to its reseller relationship with AZTi (Accops and Zevoke Technology, Inc.), which will incorporate Zimbra 8.8 into a secure messaging collaboration service for its business customers throughout Japan. The powerful, cloud-based service combines Zimbra with state-of-the-art application security offerings for an all-in-one solution that meets the increasingly stringent needs of enterprise grade buyers in the region. AZTi expects to activate 10,000 Zimbra 8.8 accounts by end of Q3 this year and more than 100,000 by Q1 2021. AZTi has already lined up a range of prominent resellers for the solutions, establishing a strong foundation for early success.
“Our firsthand experience with Zimbra, track record of success delivering it to customers and close work with the Company’s developer team on planned enhancements makes it the best choice for our cloud collaboration platform initiative that will drive AZTi’s future growth,” said Hiroyuki Kashima, Director, AZTi. “We are building a next-gen offering and Zimbra is up to the challenge for ensuring that the critical collaboration aspect of the service offers high value and performance.”
AZTi serves enterprise, academic, and government organizations throughout Japan, delivering customized IT solutions. Key Zimbra features AZTi will leverage to deliver the cloud-based service include advanced fast search capabilities, an intuitive user interface, extensibility for flexible customization, and scalability to serve the most demanding use cases from the AZTi’s system management perspective. In addition, the all-in-one secure cloud collaboration service overcomes management complexity challenges while still offering multiple layers of security for business administrators. It is ideally suited for organizations that range from hundreds to thousands of users.
”Zimbra was built for customization and smart integration and we’re excited to expand our work with AZTi as a result of the key features and functionality that make our globally popular email and collaboration solution shine,” said Steve Davi, EVP of Software Engineering, Product Management and Technical Operations for Synacor.
Zimbra’s growth continues to be fueled by its differentiation as a highly-customizable, extensible, feature-rich and value-driven collaboration platform that continues to add new functionality. Zimbra Drive was recently upgraded to add complete file sync, sharing and storage while Zimbra Docs introduced the ability to create and collaborate using documents, spreadsheets and presentations. These features can be used right inside the Zimbra Web Client.
