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.

This complexity has often lead to companies setting buckets to public to enable access which in turn has led to its own issues in terms of breaches or unauthorised access.
Yesterday’s Blog post demonstrated how the File Fabric Audit events could be stored on a HyperLedger Fabric BlockChain solution. Today’s post compliments that and shows how each file’s integrity can be validated by a checksum.
The move to Cloud is for many companies is both a blessing and a curse as it creates a potentially larger attack vector surface areas for would be hackers coupled with an increased reliance on external providers who may themselves be attacked.
Our CEO recently published a blog post on how the Storage Made Easy multicloud API can be used to build streaming audio and video Apps that unifies audio and video content from disparate clouds into a single namespace which could be used as part of an audio or video streaming service. The post provides links for downloads of the Apps built (also contained at the foot of this post).
