FileCloud Announces NextGen Breach Intercept, Expands Anti-Virus Integrations for Enterprise

 

FileCloud, today announced NextGen Breach Intercept, its expanded anti-virus integration capabilities and end-to-end data protection for the enterprise. With advanced security features including support for FIPS 140, FileCloud enables organizations to store, manage and collaborate on their most critical content with agility, security, compliance and with sovereignty over their data.

“Malicious attacks can cause business interruption, have deep financial impacts or even destroy an organization’s reputation,” said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of FileCloud. “At FileCloud, we enable secure collaboration across an organization and protect their data regardless of its location. Our NextGen Breach Intercept addresses the increasing threats organizations are facing, by integrating with anti-virus solutions to defend, detect, and recover securely and within compliance requirements.”

Content collaboration is central to many organizations’ abilities to conduct business. With increasing devices and endpoints that can access, upload and share data, protecting data is critical. With FileCloud’s NextGen Breach Intercept, any file that is uploaded or synced is scanned for viruses. If a malicious file is found, a systems administrator is notified. This new version can be integrated with any anti-virus solution that supports ICAP protocol.

“By using FileCloud, we’ve helped hundreds of clients enhance their collaborative practices while maintaining strict security and regulatory requirements,“ said Jan Schmidt, Marketing Director, BUSYMOUSE. “FileCloud gives us the complete flexibility to select the infrastructure and security solutions to solve a variety of use-cases for our clients. It has made such a positive impact on how our clients collaborate within their organization and with their own customers.”

With 85% of an organization’s content housed on on-premise file servers, enterprises are adopting cloud strategies that combine private and public clouds in blended infrastructure environments to achieve business agility, security, compliance or data sovereignty reasons. FileCloud is an advanced, scalable platform that solves the needs of large enterprise organizations. NextGen Breach Intercept will be available late September 2018.

FileCloud Expands Its Single-Sign-On Support by Announcing Integration with OneLogin

 

 

FileCloud, a leading cloud-agnostic enterprise file-sharing and collaboration platform, recently announced an integration with OneLogin to provide enterprise customers with a seamless method to authenticate users. OneLogin is a fast-growing provider of Single-Sign-On and Multifactor Authentication (MFA). Using this integration, companies can now provide access to FileCloud accounts using their OneLogin’s Single Sign-on feature (SSO). The integration means that instead of using a separate user id/password for FileCloud, users can log in into FileCloud using a company-wide Single-Sign-On user id/password.

SAML has become one of the most popular enterprise SSO standards, enabling users to access all of their enterprise cloud applications after signing in just one time.  FileCloud enables SSO authentication via SAML with specific support for Okta, Centrify, OneLogin, and Microsoft Azure Active Directory.

Leading enterprises and government organizations rely on FileCloud for storing and collaborating on their business-critical data. Organizations require a highly-accurate and easy-to-use method of identity verification in order to keep sensitive information safe while providing a simple user experience. FileCloud helps them accomplish this through various security features and integration with external apps and services such as OneLogin.

Some of the advantages of integrating FileCloud with OneLogin SSO

  • Quick on-boarding of users into FileCloud
  • Simple management – one place to manage authentication across applications including FileCloud
  • Easy-to-use method of identity verification for end-users. One user id/password across many application and services

For technical details on how to integrate OneLogin as an SSO provider with FileCloud, please visit the support documentation: https://www.getfilecloud.com/supportdocs/display/cloud/Integrate+OneLogin+with+FileCloud or email our technical support team support@codelathe.com

“From inception, FileCloud has championed data ownership and control,” said Amar Kanagaraj, CMO of FileCloud. “As companies and governments realize the importance of data ownership, FileCloud’s value proposition is resonating with the market. Especially in the post-GDPR era, with an increased need for solutions like FileCloud those offer data ownership and control.”

Enterprise File Sharing and Sync Platform FileCloud Launches Industry’s First Microsoft Office Online Server Integration

FileCloud is the only EFSS platform for Windows Servers that brings seamless browser-based document editing to on-premise file servers.

AUSTIN, TEXAS – March 23, 2017 – Today, CodeLathe launched the integration of Office Online Server with FileCloud, the IT Industry’s one and only Enterprise File Sharing and Sync platform for on-premise Windows Servers. This new integration brings powerful Office document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) web editing capabilities to on-premise Windows file servers. Microsoft Office Online Server enables organizations to deliver browser-based versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote behind their firewall. FileCloud expands the capability by allowing users to edit files through a browser, even from outside the firewall.

Users can select any file stored in FileCloud, open it via the Office Online Server, edit it, and then save it back to FileCloud without ever leaving the browser. This industry leading integration supports Microsoft Office documents (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) and offers significant benefits for firms that use file servers as their common file repository. More details on FileCloud and Office Online can be found here: https://www.getfilecloud.com/filecloud-office-integration-office-online-office-add-ons-outlook/.

We recently deployed the new browser-based document editing capabilities (offered by FileCloud and MS Office Online Server Integration) on our platform, and we have got a tremendous response from our customers. This new integration allows our customers to access their documents on the road, which makes it so much easier to work flexibly. It definitely makes FileCloud one of the most powerful EFSS in the market – said OfficeBox, a private cloud provider from the Netherlands.

According to the survey conducted by Spiceworks, a community of system administrators,  more than 87% of on-premise, physical and virtual servers run the windows server operating system. It is a well-known fact that Windows file servers are the primary component in any enterprise file sharing infrastructure. Many organizations use Windows file servers as an organization’s central repository to store and share files among employees, partners, and customers.

Even though file servers are well known for their utility and can be deployed easily, they have limitations when it comes to organization-wide file sharing.  The limitations of file servers include:

  • Lack of simple mobile and web access
  • No file versioning or recycle bin support to retrieve older versions
  • Requires VPN for remote access
  • No audit trail/access logs
  • Can’t share files as a link

Using Filecloud, organizations can easily convert their existing Windows file servers to a powerful enterprise file sharing and sync solution that addresses these limitations. FileCloud offers web and mobile access, unlimited file versioning, detailed audit trail, private, as well as temporary and password protected shares. FileCloud also adheres to the existing file access controls (ACLs) and doesn’t require VPN access.

FileCloud is the first Enterprise File Sharing solution to bring browser-based document editing to on-premise file servers. FileCloud helps organizations to extract more value from their on-premise file storage infrastructure by bringing powerful enterprise file sharing features to their windows file servers – said Venkat Ramasamy, COO of CodeLathe.

FileCloud is the fastest growing enterprise file share, sync, and mobile access solution. FileCloud is used by thousands of organizations around the world including Fortune 500 companies, governments, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and managed service providers. FileCloud can either be self-hosted or subscribed to as a SaaS service, giving customers the flexibility to pick a cloud deployment model that is perfect for them.  FileCloud is widely recognized for delivering 5x more value than the competition – in addition to file sharing and sync, the FileCloud base product includes endpoint backup, data leak prevention (DLP), unparalleled customization options and HIPAA compliant auditing.

Powerful File Analytics and Business Intelligence features

The amount of data being managed by enterprises is staggering and growing every year. According to a projection by IDC and EMC, stored data by enterprises will grow to 40 zettabytes by 2020, resulting in a 50-fold growth from the beginning of 2010. This explosive growth in enterprise data brings new security and regulatory challenges to IT departments. To protect and manage this data deluge, organizations must understand the data composition, volume of data as well as file sharing and data access patterns. FileCloud’s new business intelligence layer responds to these challenges by providing file analytics, usage analytics, client device distribution, access reports based on Geo IP, peak usage and workload patterns. More details on FileCloud’s file analytics and reports can be found here.

Managing and organizing Enterprise information is a multi-billion dollar problem and there is no one-size-fit-all solution. Public SaaS offerings like OneDrive, Dropbox and Box takes a commodity approach to solve this problem by offering a standard feature set to everybody. But when it comes to Enterprise File Sharing each business has its unique needs and requirements based on the industry vertical (Finance, Healthcare, Insurance, Government, Manufacturing), geography (US, Europe, Middle East, China, India and Others) and size (Large, Small or Medium Business).

Unlike OneDrive, Dropbox or Box, the Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of FileCloud is its versatility. FileCloud can be adapted to many different functions, use cases and business processes. One can use FileCloud for simple file sharing or use FileCloud to run the company’s whole document management process by utilizing its advanced functionalities. You can host it on-premise or on cloud or use our hosted service. That’s what makes FileCloud very competitive and compelling.

The best fighter is not a Boxer, Karate or Judo man. The best fighter is someone who can adapt on any style. He kicks too good for a Boxer, throws too good for a Karate man, and punches too good for a Judo man
– Bruce Lee

We believe in this quote. We intend to create the industry’s most versatile, unified file platform that organizes enterprise data, enhances collaboration and productivity while providing ironclad data protection. FileCloud 14 is a one very big step in the direction to achieve that dream. We like it and we hope you like it too. We will be thrilled to get your feedback and comments.
