Remote Working, or working on the move can often be the weak point of document compliance but the File Fabric Apps and best-of-breed integrations mean that end user workflows remain the same and policy and compliance enforcement is unchanged.
The File Fabric™ provides advanced ultra secure file sharing features across ALL corporate data stores. These include time expiry, password protection, restricted download access, and promoting a named link sharing policy whereby users are required to outline why they created a share link.
Post user authentication resource access is validated by the File Fabric™ in real- time and designed to scale globally.
Security measures such as encryption of data will become data protection standards which companies will be expected to utilise or face possible breach and fine consequences.
The File Fabric™ provides FIPS compliant encryption and can be configured to encrypt all data for all on-premises or on-cloud data
Access to files and data can be restricted by GEO location or IP address as an extra means of protection.
To satisfy legislation companies will need to track 'who' had access to personal data, 'when', and 'why'.
The File Fabric™ implements full file event auditing enabling companies to have complete time series audit logs for all file events.
Events can also be integrated using log aggregators such as Splunk, consumed by analytics tools such as Apache Spark, or event stored on a BlockChain based HyperLedger.
Personal data (PII) is defined very broadly under the GDPR as any data that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The challenge is how to find this data and how to continue find it and police it.
The File Fabric™ is integrated with a best-of-breed open source content management search application called Apache SOLR. This enables the File Fabric™ to index content and make it available for search to authorised users.
File Fabric™ administrators can set up an 'Audit Watch' on specific folders which enables them to be informed in real time of any activity on any file or combination of files to promote breach protection.
The File Fabric™ is document-centric and is an enabler for companies to easily access, manage, share and control multi-cloud file access within and outside the company.
The File Fabric™ adds an effective control point for multiple storage and data repositories repositories be they inside the corporate firewall or in the cloud.
The Enterprise File Fabric provides a comprehensive control and management solution that addresses ransomware attacks and protect and secure customers’ digital data across all company data points, such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, Office 365, G Suite or any of the 60+ storage and data clouds supported.
Documents can be restricted using 'view only' access permissions and trackable digital watermarks can be set to further protect document access whilst all access is audited and tracked to satisfy Compliance regimes.
Creating Policies is key mechanism in the enforcement of data processes and ultimately a key mechanism to achieve compliance of the GDPR.
The File Fabric™ makes this easy with a comprehensive set of policies that span encryption to file sharing security and Governance.
A compliance health check report is built in to make provide pro-active pointers to policies that may be missing or need enforcing.
The Enterprise File Fabric™ can be deployed on-premises or on IAAS.
The on-premises option enables companies to keep their governance and compliance hub behind the company firewall.
Deploying on-premises also enables a hybrid option for content protections that is stored outside of the company.
If companies are using Microsoft of Amazon IaaS extended infrastructures then the File Fabric can be easily be deployed on EC2 or Azure compute infrastructures.
If you can't connect you cannot protect!
The Enterprise File Fabric™ solution acts as a non-invasive proxy to data storage and applications that store data. It can be connected as required to content repositories such as Google Drive, SharePoint, Alfresco, Documentum, OpenText, SalesForce, Amazon S3, FTP, WebDav, CIFS etc.
In all over 60 content connectors can be used.
