PORTLAND, Ore.--()--Office 365® does not require that you send all your data to Microsoft®. CompanionLink Software has published a how-to guide ( for those with an Office 365 license. The guide shows how to download and configure Microsoft® Outlook® 2013 to keep business contacts, calendar events, and notes secure on your local drive. CompanionLink offers secure sync solutions for PC and Mac that avoid sending your database to a Cloud vendor who may share it with outside parties.

“ USB Sync is powerful, secure, and has a role in today’s world! ”

“ USB Sync is powerful, secure, and has a role in today’s world!” says Wayland Bruns, CEO of CompanionLink. “Recent disclosures show that any data stored in the cloud may be passed on to other parties, and permanently stored on servers which may be hacked or viewed years from now. By switching Office 365 to use a local PC install, and using CompanionLink and DejaOffice for USB or encrypted Wi-Fi synchronization with mobile devices, businesses can keep their data secure and private. The DejaOffice App for Android has an encrypted mode and ability to password-protect private records so valuable contact and calendar data cannot be viewed or copied even if your phone is lost or stolen. ”

Office 365 is sold by Microsoft as a cloud subscription service that stores email, documents, contacts, and calendar agendas in the cloud. Office 365 licenses allow you to download Outlook locally, and you can configure it to keep your Email, Contacts and Calendar privately stored on your own computer. CompanionLink USB Sync costs $14.95.
