Version 5 continues our strident efforts on providing data leak prevention best practices and governance compliance with many security enhancements especially tailored to the Government, Healthcare, Financial, and Educational sectors. MyWorkDrive connects to your Windows Active Directory and enables instant secure online collaboration and editing with O365 using active directory and optional Duo.com two factor authentication. You own your data, no third-party cloud migration needed with a secure web client, desktop mapped drive, or iOS and android app enabled editing. MyWorkDrive is easy to install and manage for multiple stakeholders in various remote locations. Major regulatory compliance standards including HIPAA, GDPR, FINRA, and FIPS are easily attained while using MyWorkDrive to securely access and share files for Enterprise agility, efficiency, and lower cost of ownership.
The mobile workplace is a reality that every CTO knows that involves multiple stakeholders across various time zones and locations who need to collaborate often in real time. As we have heard in the headlines, one simple click on a wrong link in a phishing type email could compromise an entire network’s security, an enterprise’s brand reputation, eradicate customer loyalty, or render an institution’s governance compliance null and void. Conventional remote access via VPNs do not guarantee privacy and are expensive to maintain. MyWorkDrive’s Version 5 solves critical data protection problems.
