Multi-Cloud Document Collaboration with Secure Shared Links

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.

Multi-Cloud Shared Team Folder Document Collaboration

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.

Non-Proprietary Storage Workflows for Media Asset Management

Today’s Media and Entertainment workflows can depend on multiple storage types and their associated protocols.  Assets might be delivered via an AWS S3 bucket, Dropbox share, Azure Blob container, proprietary file acceleration vendor, FTP, SFTP, or a host of other new technologies.  Once delivered an asset needs to navigate Hot, Nearline, and Archival storages while being edited, conformed, transcoded, shared, distributed and broadcasted.

While some software vendors have updates allowing access to some of the cloud based storage protocols, other applications remain stuck exclusively on only internal NFS or CIFS access.  When this happens many workflows are downgraded to the lowest common denominator (CIFS/NFS) preventing the use of more cost effective, durable or highly available scale-out storage systems.  Alternatively, a CIFS/NFS gateway might be considered to “convert” protocols.  However, almost all gateways proprietize data and compromise the cost savings of scale-out storage.

The Enterprise File Fabric speaks multiple protocols/APIs, indexes data in-place and can eliminate workflow headaches without proprietizing the data.

Using the File Fabric to Provide Security of Data Across Storage Silos With Streamed Encryption

File Fabric encryptionGDPR; CCPA; PIPEDAR, Coppa, CalOPPA, Nevada Senate Bill 220, APP, New Zealand Privacy Act, Japan’s APPI.  Privacy laws are here to stay, more are approaching, and they are becoming deeper and wider.

Every organization looking to become compliant with the existing and emerging regulations will need to perform multi-dimensional analysis of how they are handling and storing personal data.

Ensuring data, particularly sensitive data, is secured when at-rest is critically important to data security.

The Enterprise File Fabric is a hybrid multi-cloud data management platform that  provides a unified solution for data security, compliance, search and collaboration.

The Enterprise File Fabric’s FIPS certified encryption feature not only helps to ensure data is secured at-rest, but also adds an additional layer of encryption when data is stored remotely. This post explores the various encryption options that are available.
