Introducing SpiderOak Open License – Just in time for School

by with 1 comment

Over the last several months we have received requests for a version of SpiderOak that could work in compliment to the institutional setting – schools, colleges, universities, research centers, and the like. As the fall is now upon us, we thought it would be a good time to introduce our latest product that meets the specific demands of such institutions – SpiderOak Open License.

The Open License program allows an institution to purchase SpiderOak accounts in bulk and – of course – at a discount. A central admin can create one-time codes to be distributed among the associated users (e.g. students, faculty, school personnel, team members, etc…) and each member will gain access to a 100 GB incremental account. Accounts may also be closed by a central admin if the user ends up either graduating or moving on for various other reasons and this license then becomes available again for use. It is important to note that our ‘Zero-Knowledge’ privacy policy remains fully intact with each account; therefore, the only person that has access to the actual data being backed up, synced, shared, stored, or accessed belongs to the individual user and not the institution.

Further, for larger organizations that are managing hundreds or thousands of accounts, we have created APIs into the SpiderOak Open License program to make it easier to manage the overall process – tying more directly in with your current systems and protocols.

For more information, please feel free to visit the SpiderOak Open License website and don’t hesitate to contact us anytime at SpiderOak Open License Support.
