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
During 2020 companies have had to adapt to the new-normal situation of employees working remotely.
Access to company data coupled with secure collaboration and compliance monitoring became a key requirement of a companies digital transformation strategy. To strengthen support for this new way of working the Enterprise File Fabric strengthened its core feature set.by
We recently announced a new release of the Enterprise File Fabric. Probably one of the most exhaustive updates so far. Focusing on pandemic related feature enhancements on remote working and cybersecurity, and providing a powerful combination of privacy and collaboration that works with a company’s existing file and object data sets.by
One 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.
Let’s take a looks at some of the challenges and solutions that may be faced by remote workers and how the File Fabric solves them.by
This is a follow on from our similar blog post on integrating Slack with the File Fabric.
Microsoft Teams is an alternative to Slack that has gained a lot of traction particularly in the last couple of week because of the need for employees to work from home. We have had several requests of how the File Fabric can be used within Teams and this post outlines how this can be achieved.by
The File Fabric has a specific integration with Slack that promotes securely sharing files, from just about any storage repository, directly from Slack. To add the File Fabric to a Slack account simply add it from the Slack marketplace.by
While the Enterprise File Fabric’s shared team folders are great for organizations collaborating on files within their company, what happens when users want to be able to quickly share documents in a secure manner with people from other organizations?
That’s where the File Fabric Secure File and Folder link sharing comes in. No longer do companies need to leverage other services outside of their own environment for sharing, nor do you need to open up access directly to your storage.by
One of the key, powerful features of the Enterprise File Fabric is the ability for teams to simply and easy share and collaborate on files for the projects they are working on together, whatever the underlying local or cloud storage. This can easily be teams that are located in the same building, within the same continent or even across the planet from one another. The best part is that while the File Fabric can power this collaboration within an organization, it can also bridge the gap and securely allow teams across companies work on the same documents.
In this post, we’ll take a look at Shared Team Folders, allowing intra-organizational teams to work on the same file sets. Future posts will look at link and folder sharing, when you need to collaborate inter-organizationally.by
Across this year, we have announced the launch of some remarkable new features that confirm why the Enterprise File Fabric™ is becoming one of the most integrated multi-cloud, hybrid storage solutions.

I am Zaeem, SME’s Pre Sales Executive. I was asked to share my favourite SME feature with you all, so I thought hard about what was it for me that really stood out.
From the colossal arsenal of features like locking, client tools, file-sharing annotations, auditing, AD integration …….. so on and so forth. I had to pick one, but it was not that difficult for me, to decide what I think is one of the best, if not the best feature. My winner is Folder Permissions.
