The File Fabric provides various forms of encryption to protect files which has been touched upon previously in blog posts:
Use Encryption to Continuously Protect Multi-Cloud Data With the Enterprise File Fabric
Using the File Fabric to Provide Security of Data Across Storage Silos With Streamed Encryption
GDPR Watch – Transparent encryption of data
Why you, and not your storage vendor, need to manage your encryption
Encryption can be managed by IT at a data storage or folder level and it can be integrated with separate encryption vault, such as the Hashicorp vault.
There is however another type of encryption that the File Fabric supports, that is often turned off for end users in a corporate setting but which can be useful for certain use cases. This is personal or end user manage encryption. This type of encryption enables end users, for whom this is made available, to add their own encryption key for file uploads. This encryption key is not stored on the server. If lost the file(s) that have been encrypted are unable to be decrypted.

With so many employees working from home, organizations are looking for ways to enhance the security of their data, often spread between on-premises and cloud data stores, without compromising employee productivity and to comply with cyber insurance policies that may be, being added or renewed.
For enterprises using the Enterprise File Fabric™ , activating Two Factor Authentication (2FA) is an easy way to enhance access security on resources such as remote SMB/file and Object Storage with minimum disruption for end users.

Today, almost every aspect of our lives revolves around and is influenced by data. Various entities collect, analyse, and, more importantly, store our personal data, such as our names, home and IP addresses, and credit card numbers. This phenomenon was further confirmed by the 2020 UK Business Data Survey, which showed that 81% of businesses handle digitised personal and non-personal data from employees and customers alike. As these businesses expand, the use of data increases as well.

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.

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:
