Using MyWorkDrive, organizations can provide secure access to their employees. MyWorkDrive supports the complex username/password requirements built into Active Directory as well as DUO two-factor authentication. All data exchanged transmitted is encrypted using SSL, a standard security technology for encrypting data transmission. MyWorkDrive ensures data is fully encrypted using advanced AES 256 encryption with TLS 1.2 during transmission. In addition, MyWorkDrive fully supports accessing files encrypted with Windows Server file encryption (Encryption at rest).
With native support for NTFS and Access Based Enumeration no login information or access to files is ever stored or used by MyWorkDrive. All file access is granted in the context of the currently logged on user only. As an additional security precaution we have designed MyWorkDrive so that it is not possible to grant more privileges to shares in MyWorkDrive than are already provisioned in Windows under NTFS – we inherit existing permissions providing for least privilege access.
MyWorkDrive has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of “enterprise-ready” for its MyWorkDrive Secure FileShare remote access software. Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides an objective and detailed evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).

Data Retention and Archiving
MyWorkDrive allows customers to enable cloud access to files with existing data retention and archiving policies. Since no data is ever changed or stored by MyWorkDrive, existing backup software, archiving and data retention procedures may be maintained or customized to meet the needs of the business. With the entire suite of Windows server features still available, MyWorkDrive can be configured to meet the needs of organizations of any size. Should the customer ever need to restore data, retrieval is simple since it remains in NTFS format. Typical Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) products require backing up complicated SQL databases and restoring entire virtual machines – sometimes many years later. With MyWorkDrive customers need only restore the original NTFS bases file system.
Logging and Reporting
All access, modifications, deletions and user activity is logged. Any file changes are logged with an audit trail and information about who changed the file and when (Date and Time) it was changed. Audit logs can be searched based on keywords or exported as needed for additional discovery and reporting.
Data Loss Prevention
MyWorkDrive helps organizations prevent file records from accidental deletion. If a user deletes any sensitive files, this information is logged. Since MyWorkDrive ties into Windows Server shadow copies, previous versions or deleted files can be restored easily. MyWorkDrive administrators can also enable our Data Loss Prevention (DLP) feature which allows users to only edit or view, but not download or delete files at the share, user or global system level.
MyWorkDrive’s integration with Windows Search (all versions) and dtSearch (enterprise) enables users to search for files by name or content within the files. Only files the user has permissions to are returned in any search results. All access controls are maintained and presented to the user.
With Device Approval, the administrator can control what devices with install clients are able to connect to the MyWorkDrive server – including Windows, macOS, iOS and Android. Devices which have not been approved will not be allowed to connect. Users attempting to connect from an unapproved device will be provided with a message that indicates approval is required in order to use that client.
Robust Remote Access
MyWorkDrive provides multiple options for secure remote access. Our browser based web interface provides the most elegant and functional user experience in the industry without requiring syncing of documents to local PC’s and enables users to edit documents online in Office 365 without moving them to the cloud (MyWorkDrive is the only software vendor that provides this option). In addition, MyWorkDrive provides our mapped drive and mobile clients that enhance and improve end user productivity for anywhere file access without the security concerns and management of VPN’s.
