Initiatives to deploy the Enterprise File Fabric™ are often driven by infrastructure managers who need a way to give WFH workers frictionless access to the organisation’s on-premises and on-cloud data. This is great use case for the File Fabric and we endorse it wholeheartedly. At the same time we think it is also important for the enterprise’s information security professionals to understand the File Fabric’s security features, both so they can ensure that the File Fabric’s configuration aligns with the organisations information risk management standards and also so they can realise operational benefits provided by the File Fabric’s rich security oriented feature set as they go about their work of managing information security risk.

Using the File Fabric’s Home Page feature for Employee information
One of the lesser known features of the File Fabric is the ability to define widgets for the File Fabric home landing page.
This enables both Admins and users to have an input into user home pages when they login to the File Fabric. This feature is available on the SaaS and Enterprise versions of the File Fabric.
The File Fabric Home Page is normally the first things a user will see, although there is a policy that File Fabric Administrators can set to make this the File Manager if they wish for a more streamlined experience, but nevertheless the home page is a great place for Administrators to add instructions for employees, shortcuts or other productivity widgets.
