110 New Customers Added In Q2

Synacor Inc. (NASDAQ:SYNC) today announced that its Zimbra open
source-based email and collaboration platform is seeing increased
rollouts by governments and enterprises globally. In the first half of
2018, there have been more than 230 new deployments of Zimbra, with 110
of those customers added in Q2. Since announcing Zimbra 8.8 late last
year, Synacor has continued to add enhancements, including Zimbra Talk
V2, updates to Zimbra Briefcase for shared document, spreadsheet and
presentation collaboration, and enhancements to storage and security.

With the recent releases, customers can take advantage of new user
experience features and tech stack enhancements such as real-time
backup, ActiveSync across mobile and desktop, hierarchical storage
management and better delegated admin functionality. New rollouts of
Zimbra this year include Foxcraft Homes (U.S.), Bharat Heavy Electricals
Limited (India), Hiwin (Taiwan), Skyora (UK), and ASAL: Algerian Space
Agency (Africa).

"Synacor has emerged as an important partner for us as we've evolved how
we communicate as an organization and consolidated the tools we use to
collaborate," said Davesh Singh Assistant Director at Unique
Identification Authority of India (UIDAI). "The company's continued
commitment to innovation around Zimbra with rapid release updates
ensures we continue to have the flexibility we need to move as fast as
our business demands."

Zimbra 8.8.8 and 8.8.9, released in April and July 2018, introduced
Zimbra Talk V2, an enterprise-level messaging platform inside the Zimbra
Web Client, capable of one-to-one and group messaging and
videoconferencing, and file and screen sharing. The releases also
feature updates to Zimbra Drive and Zimbra Briefcase that include
seamless synchronization and sharing of files between users, wherever
they are and on any device.

Members of the Zimbra community will meet at Zimbra ACTIV8
Vietnam
and ACTIV8 North America to provide input to the future
direction of the platform. Key discussions from past events have
centered around driving continued adoption, being cloud-friendly in
addition to on-premises, offering modern and easily customizable user
interfaces and automatically addressing user traffic.

"Zimbra's success with more than 4,300 customers is a result of our
unrelenting commitment to meeting the needs of our customers and a
passionate community of channel partners and developers who continue to
push us forward every day," said Marcus Teo, Senior Vice President,
Enterprise Sales & Marketing at Synacor.
