We are excited to announce that the webinar of MyWorkDrive Server 7.0, which is soon to be released to preview, is now available for viewing. Version 7 adds many new features and enhancements including Azure AD(Entra) native authentication and Azure file shares over API support.
In the webinar, we demonstrate the use cases for MyWorkDrive including the new features and enhancements in MyWorkDrive version 7.0.
Azure AD/Entra ID Native Authentication
Starting with version 7.0, we are adding a new option to authenticate using Azure AD/Entra ID which will no longer require setting up SAML or integrating with Active Directory. SMB and Azure file storage will utilize Azure AD/Entra ID users and groups assigned to shares natively when determining user access.
Azure File Shares API Access
Currently, in MyWorkDrive 6.x, Azure File Shares can only be accessed through SMB and Active Directory. In version 7 we are adding the ability to connect to Azure File Shares through Azure APIs and Azure AD/Entra. Providing Azure File Share access over API greatly simplifies setup reducing complexity and ongoing costs as Active Directory will no longer be required on Azure File Shares. In addition, Azure File Shares over API greatly improves performance with lower-tier Azure storage.
Azure Blob Storage API Access
In version 7 we are adding the ability to connect to Azure Blob Storage through Azure APIs and Azure AD/Entra. Azure Blob Storage supports NTFS-style permissioning at the file and folder level using Data Lake Gen2. Our goal will be to support Data Lake/Azure AD fine-grained permissions through our Azure Blob Storage API integration.
