NordLocker, a Nord Security encrypted cloud storage service provider, has introduced a business offering to give enterprises throughout the globe with top-notch data security.

We introduced NordLocker as a robust file encryption tool in 2019. Since then, the product has undergone a few solid development phases and is now positioned as an end-to-end encrypted cloud storage option with a file encryption solution. It was only natural for us to move forward and launch an encrypted cloud service for business clients to offer a secure, convenient, and cost-effective way to store and manage their data.”

Aivaras Vencevicius, head of product at NordLocker.


The admin panel available in NordLocker Cloud for Business is a centralized solution that allows corporate administrators to manage all users in one location. Admin features include license distribution and role and access control at the moment. In addition, user activity logs, account and file recovery, and user groups will all be available shortly.

Lock Share is a feature that enables NordLocker business customers to safely share whole lockers (protected files) with employees both inside and outside their company. It’s as easy as entering in the recipient’s email address. Currently, the capability is only accessible to NordLocker Business subscribers.

“Launching a business product is a big step for NordLocker. We are very happy about onboarding our first corporate clients who’ve been with us all along and finally received a tailored solution to keep their business files secure in an even more convenient way. Our future plans include expanding Admin Panel functionalities with different user management and activity log features, organization-wide security settings, SSO, and other enterprise-level attributes. Our main focus is to provide business admins with tools to ensure end-to-end security of their corporate data,” says Aivaras Vencevicius.

Virtuozzo | January 06, 2022

Virtuozzo, the alternative cloud platform leader announced that TLine is Latin America’s first digital and cloud service provider to offer its DevOps Platform-as-a-Service. Integrated with Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure, DevOps PaaS expands TLine’s core digital offerings to include easy-to-use, easy-to-manage automated cloud application development and hosting. The combined IaaS and PaaS solution also demonstrates the first deployment of Virtuozzo’s full stack designed to empower service providers with revenue-generating, alternative cloud capabilities. DevOps PaaS is now available to businesses across Latin America and the U.S. through TLine’s ConnectNow marketplace. “It’s imperative for all companies to digitalize, and all companies are therefore becoming software companies. But their appetite for digital transformation is not always matched by the right DevOps talent or capital needed to build and deploy the necessary cloud infrastructure. Using Virtuozzo, we’re making DevOpS PaaS accessible to everyone so they can automate application development, easily provision applications to physical infrastructure or virtual services, and ensure high availability and security all at the same time.” Carlos Pino, President and CEO, TLine Based on Jelastic technology, the turnkey DevOps PaaS eliminates the complexity, time and investment needed by service providers to build and provision their own digital technologies. It offers advanced automation tools, intuitive cloud management and an application marketplace in an easy-to-use, high performing and scalable cloud solution. Additionally, the integrated PaaS and IaaS solution runs in a single server cluster, maximizing ROI while reducing management costs. “Unlike competitive cloud platforms designed with the enterprise in mind, our technology is uniquely designed to complement service providers’ operation models,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CTO, Virtuozzo. “By leveraging our PaaS and IaaS together, TLine can easily support both legacy workloads and modern cloud native applications with pay-per-use pricing. Virtuozzo services are all controlled through a single point of management, too – so we simplify our partners’ day-to-day operations, reduce their overheads, and help them offer even better value to end users.” PaaS Webinar TLine and Virtuozzo will host a live webinar for service providers interested in learning How to Develop Your Platform-as-a-Service Business to Capture Growth.
