LogMeIn,  Inc.  Analyst  Notes

On March 12, 2014, LogMeIn, Inc. (LogMeIn) reported that it has introduced Cubby Enterprise, a new business version of its cloud file sync and share product. The Company informed that this version is designed to help IT professionals manage sensitive company data in the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and bring-your-own-app (BYOA) era. Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn, commented, "The consistent refrain we hear from our more than 100,000 SMB IT customers is that today's file sync and share solutions fall into two camps: complex, managed offerings built for IT but loathed by employees, or consumer-grade offerings that win over employees but fall far too short on security and control. Unfortunately, that has left too many businesses with little choice but to either aggressively block such consumer apps or, more often, allow their use and take on the inherent security risks of company data being shared across both work and personal devices. With Cubby Enterprise, we're aiming to give businesses the best of both worlds by bringing together LogMeIn's deep understanding of IT management with our proven experience building popular apps."
