This new offering enables businesses to consolidate all their file sharing, sync and backup needs to one solution.

FileCloud Online subscription starts at $480 per year for 5 users and comes with 1 TB initial online storage. Additional user licenses can be purchased for $96 per user per year. FileCloud Online offers 100 GB storage for every additional user.

  • Sandbox Architecture – Our unique site sandbox architecture isolates every customer site from other customer sites for maximum security.
  • Built-in Ransomware Protection – FileCloud Online offers industry’s first file content heuristic engine to protect files from ransomware attacks.

We have looked at the following products: Dropbox, Box, Owncloud and Egnyte. The reason we chose FileCloud over the other products was the combination of the following features: File Sync and Share, Endpoint backup, Active Directory Support, SSO, Outlook Integration, Mobile Device Management, Access and Monitoring Controls. These were all features we wanted in one product, and FileCloud was the only one to have them all – said Dimas Rosario, IT Director of Kawa Capital Management.

FileCloud Online is hosted in a secure, world class data center infrastructure designed for 99.99% availability. FileCloud Online also lets customers store their data in the region of their choice, starting with Germany, Ireland, Sydney and Bombay to satisfy any data residency requirements.

FileCloud Online is a no brainer choice when it comes to choosing an enterprise file sharing and sync solution. FileCloud Online offers SMBs both EFSS and Endpoint backup in one service at a compelling price point. For a 100 user deployment, SMBs can save over 10K and get excellent ROI when compared to other cloud based EFSS products. That’s quite a savings for SMBs – said Amar Kanagaraj, CMO of CodeLathe.

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.

The drive app will make remote files appear locally as a local mounted drive.

During file access, FileCloud Drive fetches the file from the cloud on demand to provide transparent file access for end users. It doesn’t consume permanent local disk storage. Companies from highly regulated verticals like finance and health prefer FileCloud Drive Client because the files never need to be stored offline. FileCloud Drive for macOS is now available from our website: https://www.getfilecloud.com.

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.

See FileCloud Analytics Dashboard in action below,

Advanced Admin Reports

FileCloud v14 also brings the following administrator reports:

  • Gets a view of all the non-browser clients that connected to the file cloud instance
  • All non-browser clients grouped by client OS (For example: Windows, Darwin, etc.)
  • All non-browser clients grouped by client Type (For example: FileCloud Sync, FileCloud Drive, FileCloud iOS app, etc.)
  •  Get the distribution of files based on extension (For example: docx files, xlsx files, etc.)

Apart from the major features, FileCloud also brings hundreds of product improvements, bug fixes and security updates. You can find the complete release notes 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.

Self-Hosted Enterprise File Sharing Platform FileCloud 12.0 Brings Branch Office File Sharing for Businesses

serverlink
AUSTIN, TEXAS – April 26, 2016 – CodeLathe, a leading provider of Enterprise File Sharing and Sync platform, announced today the immediate availability of FileCloud 12.0. The new release is, by far, the most innovative and feature rich version of the IT industry’s leading file sharing and sync solution.

“When it comes providing solutions to companies to ensure that they have secure, fast and reliable access to organization data via web, desktop, and mobile, FileCloud 12.0 resets the bar for the entire industry,” said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of Codelathe. “When we founded the company we made a commitment to our customers to continue to innovate and provide solutions that are several generations ahead of our competition. With FileCloud 12.0 we are providing our customers and prospects with the absolute best enterprise file sharing and sync software.”

FileCloud 12.0 distinguishes itself from competitors with FileCloud ServerLink, the industry’s first remote office and branch office feature that addresses latency, and high availability requirements between sites that are situated across broad geographic locations.

As an example of how FileCloud ServerLink can be used, imagine a large multinational company that has numerous offices in multiple countries. The company frequently experiences unacceptable data download speeds when trying to access files. Delays between information query and delivery significantly impacts productivity. To solve the problem, organizations deploy FileCloud ServerLink to their branch offices to dramatically improve access speed to data, reduce latency and get faster access to files irrespective of physical geography.

FileCloud ServerLink can also be deployed as Hybrid Cloud utilizing both on-premise as well as cloud infrastructure. For example, an organization might want a FileCloud site locally on the LAN for fast local access and a remote site on the cloud (AWS, Azure or Google Cloud) for remote file access. In this case the local FileCloud site can be connected by ServerLink to the remote FileCloud site on the cloud to keep data replicated.

FileCloud 12.0 also provides users with full text search. Now, users can search for files by content contained within documents that have the following popular file extensions: txt, pdf, doc, docx, xlsx, ppt, and pptx. The text search is supported on both managed and network shares.

Another benefit for Microsoft Office users is the new FileCloud add-on for Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Now Office users will be able to open, edit, and save files to FileCloud directly from the application on a PC.

More highlights of the FileCloud 12.0:

Mobile Offline sync to iOS devices – Users can sync folders (one or two-way) directly from the FileCloud server. This is a significant benefit to users who work in disparate job sites and need to update their iPads without benefit of an internet connection. Mobile Offline will be available for Android devices soon.

Mobile 2FA Support – Beginning with FileCloud 12.0, CodeLathe will support the Google Authenticator two factor authentication.

Faster access to network shares by NTFS file permissions – FileCloud 12.0 will seamlessly improve the access performance of existing network shares and NTFS file permissions.

For complete list of new features please check the release notes.

FileCloud 12.0 starts at US$999/year for 20 users. Pay-as-you-go service provider licensing (SPLA) starts at US$2500 for IT service providers.

FileCloud is available through 108 partners in 55 countries around the globe. FileCloud customers include the world’s leading space agency, five of the top 500 legal firms, the largest title insurance company, the US’s leading home builder, and the third largest poultry producer.

Self-Hosted Enterprise File Sharing Platform FileCloud Launches “Drop the Boxes” Campaign for Businesses

Free FileCloud for Dropbox Business or Box customers who are ready to switch

AUSTIN, TEXAS – Dec 10, 2015 – CodeLathe, a leading provider of Enterprise File Sharing and Sync platform, launched a customer acquisition campaign today—“Drop the Boxes”—that offers Free FileCloud for Dropbox Business or Box.net customers with an existing Enterprise Agreement. With FileCloud, Businesses get complete control of enterprise data, total security, custom branding, easy integration and exceptional ROI when compared to public SaaS file sharing products like Box and Dropbox Business.

FileCloud empowers corporate IT departments and managed service providers allow businesses to create their own secure file sharing and sync platforms. Since FileCloud is a pure-play software solution, businesses can choose to deploy it on premise or on public cloud IaaS services, depending on their needs.
“FileCloud is undoubtedly one of the powerful file sharing platforms available today. It has all the features required by security conscious enterprises. We are making it easier for businesses to switch to FileCloud by offering it free for a year. We welcome businesses to make use of our offer that can save thousands of dollars every year,” says Venkat Ramasamy, COO of CodeLathe.

The important differentiators between FileCloud and the other file sharing and sync solutions include: the ability to self-host on-premise or on the cloud; custom branding and easy integration capabilities with existing enterprise systems; and its unique data security implementation that monitors and fixes data leakage, which is a critical component for clients in the financial, government, research and health sectors.

“Running Dropbox Business or Box could be an expensive proposition for CIOs and IT managers. For example, 1000 user licenses from Dropbox Business or Box costs approximately $180K per year. With a proper cost-benefit analysis, IT managers can easily find out that ROI can be improved by switching to FileCloud, which costs less than $25K per year for 1000 users,” says Madhan Kanagavel, CEO of CodeLathe.

Global 2000 companies trust FileCloud across all industries in 65 countries around the world. NASA, Mentor Graphics, Max Planck Florida Research Institute, Millersville University, Sanderson Farms, Andrapradesh Government and Salvation Army are few of the most notable FileCloud customers.

CodeLathe Announces FileCloud EFSS Suite on AWS GovCloud for Government Agencies

FileCloud – Enterprise File Share and Sync Solution comes to AWS GovCloud

Austin, Texas (May 18, 2015) – CodeLathe, the leader in enterprise private cloud, today announced the immediate availability of a new and extremely secure version FileCloud for government agencies. Federal and state agencies can now deploy and self-host FileCloud using the secure Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud infrastructure to back up, save, and share files in a secure environment.

FileCloud on AWS GovCloud is an ideal solution for government agencies that want complete control and security of its files.  In a typical file sharing SaaS application, service providers typically give cookie-cutter functionality to all customers and tenants. As a result, data is often co-mingled, which is a major security disadvantage for customers that need complete control of its information.

With FileCloud on AWS GovCloud, each agency can self-host its own file sharing system that meets both the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) standards. ITAR controls the import and export of defense-related articles, services, and information. FedRAMP is a government program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services.

The agencies that adopt FileCloud on AWS GovCloud have complete control over the system – from encryption keys and domain name, to terms of service and security policies. The data never co-mingles with other tenants in the system, and the system setup is handled completely by the agency.

“FileCloud is used by government agencies, and leading research institutions across the world,” said Madhan Kanagavel, chief executive of CodeLathe. “By making FileCloud available to government organizations through AWS GovCloud, they now have the ability to host information in a secure cloud infrastructure that is compliant to ITAR and FedRAMP standards.”

FileCloud apps are available for all desktop computers, laptops, and handheld devices across all mobile operating systems. FileCloud’s most important differentiators is its unique ability to monitor, prevent, and fix data leakage, which is critical for government agencies. All controlled unclassified information that is created by government employees, regardless of location, is fully protected when accessed using FileCloud.

FileCloud for government agencies is available for immediate download at www.getfilecloud.com. Pricing for FileCloud via AWS GovCloud starts at US$999 for 20 licenses per year. Additional user licenses cost US$25 per user per year.

Customers will experience the flexibility and total control of FileCloud, as well as the scalability and reliability of AWS.

FileCloud is the leading, self-hosted file sharing, sync, and mobile access solution for small-to-large businesses. By using FileCloud and AWS’s infrastructure (EC2, EBS, S3) businesses can create their own branded file storage solution (complete with company logo and domain) in a few minutes at a compelling price point. FileCloud client apps are available for all major desktop and mobile operating systems including Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, Windows, and Windows Phone 8.

FileCloud provides users with secure access, file sharing, and sync from anywhere. It provides endpoint backup, data leak prevention (DLP), and HIPAA compliant auditing. FileCloud can be run under any domain and is easily customized to reflect your organization’s brand. FileCloud’s unique capabilities are: the ability to monitor information; prevent and fix data leakage; and assure corporate data is protected across all devices (including laptops, desktops, smartphones, and tablets).

“In contrast to managed public cloud enterprise file share and sync offerings, FileCloud hosted on Amazon infrastructure provides the best of two worlds: the complete control, flexibility, data separation and customization of FileCloud; and the scalability, resiliency of the AWS infrastructure. Further, FileCloud costs only 25$/user/year, which is 20 percent of the price of other managed EFSS offerings,” said Madhan Kanagavel, chief executive of CodeLathe.

AWS Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) platform was founded in 2006, and operates in 11 geographical data centers, or regions, around the world.
