A Leading Free Cloud Service, SugarSync Breaks Into the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies
SAN MATEO, CA–(Marketwire – Aug 20, 2012) – SugarSync, a free service that lets you access, sync and share all of your files and folders across all your computers and mobile devices, today announced that it has been ranked #99 on the annual Inc. 500/5000 Fastest Growing Companies list. This honor comes on the heels of SugarSync being included in the AlwaysOn Global 250 just last month, and adds to a long list of product and company awards the company has received this year.
“To be included in the top 100 fastest growing companies in the country is a great honor, and further validates what millions of customers as well as many leading international brands already know — that SugarSync is the leader in Cloud backup, access, sync and sharing,” said Laura Yecies, CEO of SugarSync. “A recent report has found that file syncing has emerged as the fastest growing Cloud service, and this ranking shows that SugarSync is a prime example of that growth.”
The 2012 Inc. 500/5000, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 21 to November 15 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 770% in sales growth. The median growth rate of this year’s Inc. 500 winners was calculated at 1,435% while SugarSync’s growth rate was a dramatic 3,130% in just three years.
“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” said Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
SugarSync has emerged as a leader in the Cloud storage, sync and share market, and has been selected as a Cloud partner by brands including Samsung, Lenovo, Fujitsu, SanDisk, France Telecom-Orange, Korea Telecom, SoftBank and more. SugarSync is consistently selected by consumers and brands around the world because SugarSync is the only Cloud solution that is built with the flexibility to sync all of a user’s folders (not just one), is available on the most mobile devices (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian — with Windows Phone 7 coming soon), and is the industry’s only true two-way sync solution for mobile devices. Industry experts also repeatedly select SugarSync as the best-of-breed Cloud service, citing the same strengths.
