As remote working settles into becoming more and more of a reality for many companies our experience is that many companies wish to facilitate direct end user access to Amazon’s Simple Object Storage, Amazon S3.
The reasons they want to do this are:
We are pleased to announce that the File Fabric has been added as an Rclone connector in the newly released 1.54 version of Rclone.
Rclone is a free open source command line tool that works across Windows, Mac and Linux to sync and work with remotely stored files.

Pandemic-driven increases in work from home initiatives along with incidents such as the recent Solar Winds data breach have increased the security imperative for data auditing.
Access to structured data is, for the most part, audited via database logs and application audit trails. On the other hand, for access to unstructured data, the fastest growing component of corporate data, there exists little to no unified access logging. This problem is compounded because organizations of even moderate size typically deploy storage across multiple data platforms – on premises NAS and windows filers, cloud applications such as MS OneDrive, Google Drive, SharePoint and, DropBox, to native cloud data stores as S3, Azure and GCP.by

One of the predominant use cases that many companies have is to enable file access to SMB file shares that live behind the corporate firewall , or indeed are hosted on IaaS infrastructures (such as Amazon FSX or Azure Files), without the need for a VPN and without reconfiguring permissions whilst using Active Directory or LDAP for authentication and also ensuring that data is secure and compliance legislation is satisfied.
This has of course become even more of a requisite during the recent Covid-19 pandemic in which there is a pressing need to enabled. such access for remote workers.
Accessing files over CIFS/SMB network over VPN using a mobile network is possible but access can be patchy, clients apps limited and it is often extremely slow.
The File Fabric enables this using its built in CIFS / SMB connector. This blog post will step through how to web enable SMB file shares.by
The team behind the Storage Made Easy Blog has published articles on the hottest topics of the year: remote working, challenges and changes in the way companies are dealing with data, or remote cybersecurity; are some of the topics covered.
Here are our top 5 picks:by
The core focus of the Enterprise File Fabric is providing multi-cloud content collaboration with strong cybersecurity and compliance protection for a company’s entire date state, whether that is file or object storage; and whether that is stored on-premises or on-cloud.
Having employees outside the office working and accessing data from different locations, this year more than ever it was crucial for companies to feel their data was secured.
Remote Working, or working on the move can often be the weak point of document compliance, but the File Fabric Apps and best-of-breed integrations mean that end user workflows remain the same and policy and compliance enforcement is unchanged.
Here’s a recap of the remote cybersecurity features that were reinforced within the Enterprise File Fabric this year:by

The shift from working from an office to working from home / remotely due to the pandemic looks like it is here to stay for many companies, even post pandemic. End users have had to cope with moving from being always connected via a high speed line to SMB shares to working across consumer broadband from B2B2C file services. Prospects and customers have helped us create a pretty clear picture of the problems this has caused them and below we outline the top three things that we have been told:by
