Start-up Delivers Cloud Based Content Management Service

Corporations have been moving information from the premises to the cloud. As they make that transition, small and medium businesses want to ensure that only authorized individuals access their content, a need that start up Gogobeans is trying to address.

Corporations have been moving information from the premises to the cloud. As they make that transition, small and medium businesses want to ensure that only authorized individuals access their content, a need that start up Gogobeans is trying to address.The company announced Gogobeans.com, a cloud service that enables companies to store, organize, and share digital property. The vendor relies on four tier security to protect each asset. Companies can determine whether to share data with specific individuals or popular social media networks, like Facebook, Twitter, and Digg.

Users can search by keyword or file name to locate digital properties stored or connected to their personal Gogobeans lockers. Companies track their beans like FedEx packages to ensure they have been received by the intended recipient. Gogobeans provides up to 1G bytes of storage at a monthly subscription price starting at $5 per user.

The vendor has targeted an area of growing interest, but it does face significant competition. Boxnet, Digi-Data Corporation, and SpringCM have estalished their cloud based content management services. In addition, cloud based data storage suppliers, such as Amazon, EMC, and Nirvanix, have been looking to expand their services and gradually adding content management like features. Consequently, Gogobeans may have difficulty making a name for itself.
