Axcient has accelerated the roadmap for Anchor and CloudFinder to assist MSPs with Work From Home (WFH) customer demand, the data protection software provider says.
The enhancements include Anchor backup capabilities for Zoom and RingCentral recorded meetings, and a new Anchor-ConnectWise Automate integration to ease RMM (remote monitoring and management) services.
The updates arrive amid surging demand for Axcient, an MSP-centric file sync and sharing alternative to Box and Dropbox. Indeed, Anchor saw a 70 percent increase in usage for MSPs seeking to deploy protected sync and share without VPNs, the company says.
Amid that surge, Axcient says it collaborated with partners to release such additional Anchor updates as:
New and more intuitive Anchor UX, requiring less clicks to complete actions.
Native Office 365 integration for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint online collaboration.
For CloudFinder, the Axcient software can now back up Microsoft Teams conversations and G Suite Team Drive, the company says.
