Gartner: To the right, to the right – biz sync firms who've won in a box to the right...

Magic quadrant: Top marks for, er, completeness of vision, EMC

Security for virtualized datacentres

As if it needed another boost to its marketing efforts, EMC’s Syncplicity can be seen on the right-hand side of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant enterprise file sync and share box with Syncplicity, a timely marketing boost coming on Amazon's entry into the market with its Zocalo service.

Gartner MQ for enterprise file sync

The Leaders’ box contains, in rough order: EMC (Syncplicity), Citrix (ShareFile), Box, comfortably ahead of Dropbox (a Challenger) and Accelion.

Citrix bought ShareFile in 2011 and has made an undeniable success of it, which means that, while it may be ahead on "completeness of vision", Syncplicity is slightly behind ShareFile in the "ability to execute" stakes.

Microsoft, Google, IBM and Dropbox can expect to be joined by Amazon in the Challenger's quadrant when the report is refreshed.
