With FileCloud, system administrators shouldn’t have to click more than once to perform critical activities. Currently, the quick links include Add Users, Add Groups, Add Network Shares & Add Administrators.

Single Sign On (SSO)

When the same group of users needs access to a plethora of different applications, creating custom authentication for each application ruins end user experience and makes it nearly impossible for system administrators to maintain varied authentication lists. FileCloud can easily integrate with existing authentication systems within an enterprise.

SAML SSO Support

FileCloud can be easily integrated with OKTA. In this setup, OKTA acts as the identity provider and FileCloud as the service provider.

Encryption In-Transit & At Rest

With data interception and data leak on the rise, FileCloud uses the most secure technologies to satisfy any demanding usage situation. The SSL/TLS secure tunnel secures files during transmission and protects from data interception. In addition, FileCloud has adopted the 256-bit AES encryption for encrypting data at rest, which is impossible to decipher in case of data leak. This allows enterprises of any size to easily secure their data using FileCloud’s built-in secure technologies. Just configure and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with complete security.

Protect Data In Transit

FileCloud administrators can turn on SSL to enable secure sharing. Simply get a new SSL certificate, configure the underlying Apache web server to use the certificate, and enable HTTPS protocol. We highly recommend disabling HTTP and/or automatically re-directing all HTTP requests to HTTPS.

Protect Data At Rest

FileCloud supports storage-level encryption and provides an easily configurable tool to encrypt files at rest. FileCloud uses 256-bit AES encryption, which is one of the strictest encryption standards in the world. AES encryption is approved by National Institute of Standards and Technology for federal use.

Ransomware is a specific type of malware that encrypts files and forces the enterprise to pay a ransom to get the key to restore the files. Ransomware is hard to detect and can be devastating to the enterprise. Enterprise File Sharing and Sync (EFSS) solutions exacerbate the problem since EFSS solutions provide many endpoint agents that access, synchronize, and backup data to central repository, significantly increasing the risk of infection and propagating the infection.

“…nearly 40% of all businesses experiencing an attack in the past year” (source: The Guardian)
“…during 2015, law enforcement saw an increase in these types of cyber attacks, particularly against organizations because the payoffs are higher. And if the first three months of this year are any indication, the number of ransomware incidents—and the ensuing damage they cause—will grow even more in 2016 if individuals and organizations” (source: FBI)

Detection & Proactive Alert

FileCloud’s heuristic engine uses rules to detect any suspicious activity. For example, if a ransomware was uploaded disguised as a Word document, FileCloud would detect the threat by checking the file content signature vs. its mime type. If FileCloud detects that the file wasn’t really a Word document then FileCloud stops the upload and sends an alert to the administrator.

Granular Permissions

FileCloud supports granular permissions for folders that enable custom permissions. Using granular permissions, organizations can build permission tree to protect any sensitive data. Even if a folder is exposed to ransomware via Drive or Sync clients, the client apps cannot spread the infection to the folder with sensitive data.

Recovery

Backing up and versioning of files can be effective mechanism to recover from a ransomware attack. In the event of a ransomware attack in a client computer, if the data had been versioned in FileCloud server, then the client computer data can be restored using older versions from the server. FileCloud offers unlimited versioning and endpoint backup to help companies develop effective anti-ransomware strategies.

Ransomware Protection in FileCloud

FileCloud introduces industry-first heuristic engine to detect ransomware. Additionally, FileCloud offers features to help enterprises develop effective strategies to counter ransomware.

Customization is an effective deterrent

Email spoofing is one of the primary delivery method to send malware to end user computers. With Dropbox and other public SaaS products, hackers can easily spoof the email and users aren’t usually aware of what is behind a link because every email and link look the same. Filecloud offers many customization options.

Unique brand experience

You can customize FileCloud to provide unique branding experience and professional look that you want to give to your employees, partners and customers. Such a differentiated experience helps users to flag any suspicious content that doesn’t adhere to the experience.

Customize-able email content

With FileCloud, all your communications will have your logo, and unique content that you have created, which is harder for an external hacker to know and replicate.

Url with your domain

FileCloud runs under your domain names and users can easily detect malicious request by looking at the URL (unlike Dropbox where every URL has Dropbox domain)

Backup

You can backup the entire server including user data and settings. Offers full or incremental backups. Comes with flexibility to schedule backups.

Restore

You can fully restore the FileCloud installation in case of any failure. Allows secure backup and restore across Windows and Linux.

Export. Freedom from vendor lock-in

You are not locked-into FileCloud, unlike many enterprise file sharing and sync solutions. ‘Export’ makes moving away from FileCloud simple. With just a click, you can export all or subset of files stored in FileCloud to a normal file structure.

FileCloud Backup Server

Data loss can be expensive, and could disrupt your key business operations hence having a good disaster recovery plan is critical to any business. To help with disaster recovery, FileCoud offers ‘Backup Server’, which backs up your entire FileCloud installation. This feature is offered as part of core product (starting version 11) at no additional cost.

Note that ‘Backup Server’ is different from using FileCloud as a backup system to backup a few files. In case of ‘Backup Server’, all the files, user data and settings stored in FileCloud will be backed-up.

Improve your productivity

You can automate many of your routine file related activities, freeing you up for high rewarding tasks. For example, if you want to clean-up a folder every x days, you can set a work flow to perform the action at set interval. Automation not only reduces physical workload but also saves you from having multiple mental threads and to-dos, making room for more complex and productive tasks.

Operate in real time

Simple automation can help you work in real time and be updated continuously. For instance, your team is waiting for an important file from a partner and you want to start working immediately after partner uploads it. In this case, you can set ‘an action’:to send a notification if ‘a condition’:a file were added to a specific folder. This simple workflow would save you from checking your folder every 10 mins looking for an update.

Enable checks and controls

FileCloud supports complex conditions those give admins more control to enforce policy, protect data etc. For example, you could automatically enforce a policy such as ‘disable access to guest users who haven’t logged in for x days’. Also, you could use workflow for security checks, such as ‘receive an alert if a sensitive file were updated’.

Workflow Automation

FileCloud’s workflow automation enables enterprises to design and manage processes with simple ‘if this (a condition) then do that (an action)’ logical statements, similar to IFTTT. Users can use these ‘condition:action’ combinations to automate many file related tasks from developing business processes to enforcing policies.

Multi Office Synchronization – Files, Users

Each branch office instance mirrors the main FileCloud server at HQ. FileCloud not only replicated files/folders but it also replicates all related data such as users, groups, comments etc.

Mix Match Infrastructure, OS

FileCloud provides the flexibility to organizations to run branch office FileCloud instances on variety of infrastructure and OS. FileCloud ServerLink technology handles the complexity in the background and keeps these instances in sync.

Enable checks and controls

FileCloud supports complex conditions those give admins more control to enforce policy, protect data etc. For example, you could automatically enforce a policy such as ‘disable access to guest users who haven’t logged in for x days’. Also, you could use workflow for security checks, such as ‘receive an alert if a sensitive file were updated’.

Simple Pricing

With one simple pricing, organizations get the full benefit of branch office. Cross-office synchronization enables tighter integration across team to deliver their products, services and supporting functions. Benefits significantly outweighs the cost.


Branch Office Synchronization

A single file server in the headquarters wouldn’t be able to provide same level of performance to branch offices that are located across continents. With a single server, users in remote branch offices will observe latency when accessing files remotely. To alleviate the problem, the branch offices can have their own FileCloud instance and FileCloud ServerLink technology synchronizes files across multiple FileCloud instances.

Granular Folder Permissions

FileCloud offers granular permission control over folders. Allows organizations to manage access permissions at any folder and subfolder level. Admin can ensure appropriate level of access for every user, by assigning individual folder level permissions.

Allows flexible permissions

Admin can set read/write/delete/share permissions for any user at any folder level. Even if an user has permissions for some actions at a top level folder, a specific subfolder can have different permissions.

Allow certain users to set Granular Permissions

Administrators can allow specific users to set granular folder permissions, giving more control for specific team folder accounts.

Enforces access for all actions

All aspects of FileCloud follow these granular folder permissions setup and configured this way including content search, sync, locking, comments etc.
