Integration with Office 365 Brings Browser-Based Editing and
Real-Time Coauthoring to On-Premises Microsoft Office Files

FileCloud,
the leading file sharing software ensuring enterprise control in the
cloud, today announced that it has officially joined the Microsoft Cloud
Storage Partner Program. As part of Microsoft's Cloud Storage Partner
Program, FileCloud will enable Office 365 business users to open, edit
and save changes to remote Office files stored in FileCloud using a web
browser. Importantly, users can co-author and collaborate on documents
in real time on Office documents stored in FileCloud from anywhere.

Since its inception, FileCloud continues to break barriers and offers
unique customer choices. FileCloud gives Office customers a seamless
experience when working with Office documents regardless of how they are
accessed or where they are stored.

"We are excited to be part of the Microsoft Cloud Storage Partner
Program and to use the Microsoft Office 365 capabilities for our
customers across the globe," said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of CodeLathe.
"Browser-based editing of Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and
Microsoft Excel files, as well as working simultaneously on a document
via co-authoring features of Office 365, will allow our customers to be
instantly more productive and will be a great addition to many existing
integrations we have developed for Office, including Microsoft Outlook
and mobile apps."

Even when files and workloads are rapidly moving to the cloud, the
majority of organizations continue to store significant portions of
their data on-premises. FileCloud offers flexible options where
customers can pick a storage model (on-premises, the cloud or a hybrid
option) that suits their business needs. With this new Office
integration, FileCloud brings real-time collaboration and remote
co-authoring to any file regardless of where it is stored.

Rob Howard, Director, Microsoft Office Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp.
said, "We are excited to have FileCloud's participation in the Cloud
Storage Partner Program to further extend the availability of Microsoft
Office 365 to FileCloud's users. It's a unique integration that connects
FileCloud's technology directly to Office Online, so that customers have
a great experience for reading and editing Office documents stored
within their environment."
