Fileboard Launches and Announces Seed Investment from Dave McClure

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Fileboard is a free service which allows people to manage their attachments and files on the iPad. Productivity workers today have hundreds of files scattered over dozens of local and cloud-based repositories. Finding the right file fast is difficult. Most iPad users are required to use different services such as email, Dropbox, Evernote and Fileshares to work and exchange files. As people interact with new people or organizations a new repository is created. This causes files and knowledge to be spread across a even more repositories. Fileboard allows iPad users to manage email attachments and cloud-based file repositories from a single, unified view.

“Most iPad users think of it as an attachment blackhole,” said Khuram Husasin, Founder and CEO of Fileboard “Now, Fileboard gives people the confidence and ease to manage their attachments and files on the iPad.”

We are also pleased to announce that Fileboard has accepted a seed investment from Dave McClure and 500 Startups.

How Fileboard Works

Fileboard’s platform allows productivity workers to add and manage multiple file streams such as email for attachmets, Dropbox and Evernote. Fileboard creates a unified view with different file streams showing recently updated files. The simple interface makes it easy to save, forward and retain any file, from any stream. Sharing files from one repository with users or backing it up on another is simple.

Fileboard plans to continue to add other services over the coming months. Fileboard plans to provide additional security, data loss protection, and role-based control features. These features will ensure that corporate IT departments can properly enforce data level security requirements for bring your own device (BYOD) users.
