Personal content management
solutions provider Primadesk, announced the launch of their flagship product,
an Internet and mobile application that provides users with centralized access
to their range of digital data dispersed across multiple online services, after
successful beta testing. The Primadesk app helps bring order to online life,
enabling users to search, manage and back up online accounts with one
interface, no matter what device they use. Primadesk incorporates the ability
to drag and drop content (documents, emails and photos) from one service
provider to another.
Primadesk Free Version
provides search and manage capabilities across any five service providers. The
Pro Version also includes the ability to back up personal online content, by
folders or albums or the entire account. In addition, Pro Version provides
unlimited access to more than 25 online services. Primadesk is currently
developing other features for Pro Version, including single sign-on to all
other online applications regularly accessed by users.
"When we launched the
Startup Accelerator program just a year ago, we expected our seed investments
to help place us at the forefront of industry trends. We are excited to see our
first investment, Primadesk, make excellent progress in the personal cloud
content management space," said John McIntyre, managing director of Citrix
Startup Accelerator. "We expect them to make significant strides this year as
they continue to get market traction and attract more investors."
In addition, Primadesk
Mobile Version provides users the ability to view all recent content from
online accounts on their Apple iOS or Google Android devices. Users can also
search and view all their photos and documents in one place. Mobile Version
puts users' cloud data right at their fingertips, so they can copy content from
one service to another on the go.
"IDrive EVS provides a
unique technology for encrypted and secure cloud storage. Partners like
Primadesk add immense value to our platform," said Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of Pro
Softnet Corp. "IDrive provides secure backup of your PC, Macs and mobile
devices, and with Primadesk, our users can also protect their cloud-based
content using our platform."
A recent report from
Microsoft estimated that the average Web user has approximately 25 online
accounts, with each one requiring its own log-in credentials and holding a
different slice of online life, and without the ability to integrate views and
share data. Primadesk is a solution for organizing, viewing and interacting
with this dispersed personal cloud content. With Primadesk, the consolidated
Web experience travels with the user from device to device, connecting cloud
services wherever the user might be.
"The rapid growth of Web‐access devices and cloud services has vastly increased
the amount of data that is created and stored on the Web," said Srinivasa
Venkataraman, founder and CEO of Primadesk. "Primadesk not only makes it easier
for users to access and manage that data with Pro Version, we also help them
protect that data through automatic backup. No matter where your content is
located, you run the risk of inadvertently losing it if you have only one copy
in the cloud."
