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.

This support for secure email link sharing has now been extended for Chrome users using Gmail using the Storage Made Easy Gmail Plugin available from the Chrome web store.
Once added this provides a new toolbar entry when composing Gmail’s on Chrome:
Once selected this prompts the user to log into their SME Account, if SaaS, or the user can set their custom endpoint if using the SME On-Site Enterprise File Share and Sync solution:
Once logged in the user is presented with their mapped clouds:
From here files can be shared as links can be shared from any of the mapped cloud directories:
If a cloud governance file policy has been set by the Cloud Administrator for the team account then the details here will be pre-populated otherwise options can be chosen prior to link generation. After this when share is clicked, the link is added to the email:

The SME Chrome extension works with any free/personal, team, or on-premise account and works with over 45 public/private cloud storage providers.
**Note: only team and on-premise accounts provide the Audit features
