Home PageOne of the lesser known features of the File Fabric is the ability to define widgets for the File Fabric home  landing page.

This enables both Admins and users to have an input into user home pages when they login to the File Fabric. This feature is available on the SaaS and Enterprise versions of the File Fabric.

The File Fabric Home Page is normally the first things a user will see, although there is a policy that File Fabric Administrators can set to make this the File Manager if they wish for a more streamlined experience, but nevertheless the home page is a great place for Administrators to add instructions for employees, shortcuts or other productivity widgets.

How to securely and productively enable employees to work from home using existing company data with the File Fabric

Remote Working CoronavirusOne of the things the Coronavirus Covid-19 has brought sharply into focus is the topic of employee remote working.  Whether this is to limit the spread of the virus or because employees are self isolating, many companies may find themselves in a position where a significant part of their workforce is working out of the office.

The aim of this post is to outline how the File Fabric software may help companies who wish to prepare or facilitate remote working.

Firstly some background on the File Fabric.  The File Fabric is a secure multi-cloud content management data collaboration solution. It does not provide any storage rather it indexes and works with existing on-premise or on-cloud storage silos. It unites files in these disparate storage platforms to provide a single cohesive way for people to securely work and collaborate.

The File Fabric has a strong ethos and governance and compliance of the data that it indexes and makes available providing event based audit and configurable compliance policies.

There are three ways to use the File Fabric today:

1.  For small businesses from our SaaS hosted platform. This version of the File Fabric does not have all of the features of the enterprise version.

2.  Enterprise Version that is self hosted by a company and can be deployable on-premises or on-cloud.

3.  For free using our self hosted personal version.
