The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming fast, it almost certainly applies to your organization, and the consequences of getting it wrong are severe.
The time to get ready is now!
GDPR will require companies to have/provide a greater understanding of where and how sensitive data is stored, transferred, and accessible and in particular how companies police and audit this data.
Most companies today have multi-cloud environments as the benefit from mixing and matching the best technologies from various cloud and applications providers, but managing data is a daunting prospect, particularly with incumbent compliance legislation such as GDPR.
With the Storage Made Easy File Fabric, companies can have a single pane of glass for all corporate data, whether it is on cloud or on-premises, to promote a more unified productive experience for end users and to enforce a unified data security policy with full file event audit logging to track data access.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been approved by the European Union and, once it comes into force in May 2018, it will give data subjects significant new rights over how their personal data is collected, processed, and transferred by data controllers and processors. It demands significant data protection safeguards to be implemented by organizations. The time to get ready is now, as the consequences of getting it wrong are significant.
GDPR is coming fast, it almost certainly applies to your company, and the consequences of getting it wrong are severe.
The primary purpose of the File Fabric encryption feature is to protect a users/companies files on local and remote storage resources, such as Object Storage, Dropbox, Google Drive etc, and to achieve this in an easy and seamless manner.
When files are encrypted in by the File Fabric, users cannot access or share them directly from the storage service. The files need to be accessed through the File Fabric web or app clients because the key to decrypt the data is stored, encrypted, on the File Fabric server instance.
At Storage Made Easy we regularly run webinars to demonstrate the Enterprise File Fabric, showing how it can be used with one of our many supported cloud providers.

Storage Made Easy recommends all traffic to be secured with encryption, as a matter of fact, by default we enforce the user of HTTPS communication. That said the software ships with self-signed certificates, to get you started, and when you first connect you will be greeted by an Invalid Certificate message in most browsers as self-signed is fine for pre-production, setup and testing but real certificates need to be added for production. In this post I will show you how to setup a free of charge, trusted certificate with our product. Let’s Encrypt is the name of the Certificate Authority we will be using, who provide free SSL certificates for 90 days.
