Zimbra Acquires Mezeo: Adds Cloud-Based Secure File Sharing Capabilities

By | July 15, 2014
I have a very keen feeling of déjà vu. It’s hard to believe that we were communicating the acquisition and planned merger of Zimbra and Telligent on this exact day last year. And today, I have the pleasure of announcing that Zimbra has acquired Mezeo, a software company that provides secure file sync and share and cloud storage for service providers, governments and companies worldwide. Why is this news so exciting? Secure file sync and share is critical for today’s users, and it is one of the capabilities Zimbra customers request most often. By acquiring Mezeo, it allows us to expand our product offering to now include user-friendly file sync and share, while also enabling complete control over data. We also gain standout technical talent and IP (including patents that cover aspects of storage efficiency and file security). Overall, this acquisition adds tremendous value to our network of more than 1,000 partners, 500+ service providers, and 200,000+ organizations using our platform.… Read more »
