PolicyPak for SugarSync

Cloud storage brings many advantages to your users, which is why it is so popular. At PolicyPak we know there are a number of cloud storage application choices used within enterprises today, which is why we strive to support as many as possible, including SugarSync.

Your users depend on the most current copies of their files, which is why the synchronization element of these cloud based applications is so critical, so critical that you certainly don’t want your users configuring these applications.

That’s where PolicyPak comes in. PolicyPak enforces and locks down the optimum setting values that you, the administrator, want your users to have. PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Keep your SugarSync configuration settings enforced and streamlined with PolicyPak. Check out this video to see how it’s done:

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface as SugarSync itself. This application is of no use if it isn’t running at all times so use PolicyPak to make sure that “Start SugarSync when my computer starts up” is always checked.

The easier you make things for your users, the less help desk calls they will generate. You can use PolicyPak to clearly create a separate local drive for this application by ensuring that “Mount SugarSync as a local drive” is always checked and go and select a drive letter to match it. Then to make sure that your users can’t modify this configuration uniformity you can use PolicyPak’s signature feature, ACL Lockdown. ACL Lockdown locks your desired application settings all the way down to the registry itself, preventing registry savvy users from altering your desired settings directly within the registry. Simply right click on your desired settings and select “Perform ACL Lockdown.”

SugarSync is a cloud based application, which means it needs to access the Internet, which means it must be configured correctly for proxy settings. PolicyPak can ensure that SugarSync always has the correct proxy information so that Internet connectivity is always ensured. You can lock down this setting as well as any setting within this application with ACL Lockdown.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage SugarSync, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, Lync, Java, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.
