Pogoplug provides secure and private cloud storage solutions. Pogoplug PC runs on any computer and makes its content accessible and sharable from anywhere. For users who want to access and share content without relying on a PC, Pogoplug sells devices that bring the contents of any attached hard drive, SD card or thumb drive online.
“We are a service. And the service is designed to take any hard disk that you buy off the shelve and cloud enables your disk drive, so that whether it is at home or the office; it’s actually connected to the internet, so you can use it from anywhere,” says Daniel Putterman, President and CEO of Pogoplug. “And we enable the service with a small appliance that we build and sell called the Pogoplug Device. This device is available in mass retail across the country at Best Buy and Wal-Mart.”
Pogoplug is led by experienced entrepreneurs from the digital media and security space and backed by Foundry Group, Softbank and Morgan Stanley. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, with a satellite office in Tel Aviv.
