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.

Since the pandemic, remote working is no longer optional, it is mandatory. Unfortunately, M&E workflows are ill-suited for remote work situations.
Traditional approaches to previewing, editing, staging and archiving large media files are unworkable over the Internet. With traditional workflows, production would grind to a halt as staff wait on long download / upload times, that is, if they can even access the asset in the first place.
Employee access from home creates potential security vulnerabilities. First and foremost, IT has to ensure unauthorized parties do not have access to proprietary assets and that communication links are secure.
Join us on Tuesday, April 14th at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST / 7pm CET, to learn how Cloudian and Storage Made Easy are defining the next generation of M&E workflows for remote workers.

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.

GDPR; 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.
