“The momentum in the industry towards managing content in the cloud offers the strongest opportunities yet for organizations like Metalogix that can balance the productivity needs of the end user with the security and compliance needs of the business,” said Ben Levitan. “What attracted me to Metalogix was its unique position and heritage – 15 years of success, over 20,000 customers worldwide, a strong team, exceptional partner network and a strong product portfolio. I am excited to leverage that foundation and help our customers master what it takes to be successful in an increasingly complex cloud-based collaboration space.”
