RSA Conference 2018 Takeaway: Cloud Computing Is Not Secure

Data security and privacy compliance regulation was top priority at RSAC2018 because of the EU’s GDPR deadline looming next month on May 25th. Last week San Francisco’s Moscone’s Center was host to the security show of all shows, RSA2018 with over 500 vendors and 40,000 attendees from all over the world.  One thing became very clear from all the exhibitors, keynotes, speakers, special programs, and podcasts – if you rely on the cloud then protecting your data and securing it is critical for file sharing.

As the only file sharing/file remote access software solution vendor at the RSAC show, MyWorkDrive had amazing feedback and an overwhelmingly positive response exhibiting and providing demos at our booth of our latest version release.   RSAC Broadcast Alley was host to MyWorkDrive’s CMO, Jackie R. Bruckman and MyWorkDrive’s CEO, Dan Gordon recorded live discussing all the ways MyWorkDrive can help Enterprise in all sectors stay secure and compliant.

MyWorkDrive met with decision makers and security professionals from all over the world and has been busy on-boarding new clients this week immediately following the show.   MyWorkDrive had an overwhelmingly positive response demonstrating our secure file share remote access solution at RSAC2018 for enterprises .   The overwhelming take away was that many Enterprises need MyWorkDrive to simplify their data security compliance for safe file sharing while making users more productive and reducing costs of support or migrations to new Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) systems.

The Cloud is only someone else’s server after all and it’s time for many sectors to think outside the cloud.   Windows file sharing with NTFS security is tried and true and may not be as glamorous but we are empowering Enterprises across the globe to make the right decision about their most critical data while making users more productive and eliminating the security risks of cloud storage.

MyWorkDrive Debuts GDPR & HIPAA Compliant File Share Tool at RSA Conference in SF April 16th – 20

The quintessential cybersecurity conference will be held in San Francisco’s Moscone Center next week, April 16th – 20th www.rsaconference.com

MyWorkDrive releases version 4.1!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 3rd, 2018 (San Francisco, CA)

 

MyWorkDrive– the San Francisco based Start Up redefining file sharing and instant content collaboration, releases its most robust version this week to happy Enterprise partners worldwide. HIPAA, FNRA, and GDPR compliance is a breeze whether you are accessing your company’s digital assets from a mapped drive, web browser, or via an app in iOS.  New enhanced features in version 4.1 include:

Ability to Open and Edit CSV Files Online & Network Shortcuts, New Upload/Download Timeouts, and New Security Controls.

MyWorkDrive was recently featured in the industry expert online journal, StorageSwiss touting MyWorkDrive’s solution to the industry standard Enterprise File Sync and Share problems. Essentially MyWorkDrive cloudifies your own data center and allows remote users across your enterprise to access files instantly and easily and edit in real time by using a web browser login, a mapped drive, or an app for iOS on a phone or iPad.

The global Enterprise File Sharing and Synchronization (EFSS) market is currently valued at approximately 1.45 Billion USD and is projected to reach 8.59 Billion USD by 2025. EFSS providers are third-party cloud vendors who require an Enterprise to migrate all digital assets and files first and then sync before being able to share.  This is costly, time consuming, and frustrating as company agility, productivity, and growth are key drivers in this inter connected global marketplace.  Why migrate and be required to sync your files when your real priority is instant collaboration online?

“We are really happy with our improved security controls for all our Enterprise partners and their remote users using MyWorkDrive.  We know instant collaboration performed securely is paramount as we continue to be a trusted partner in file share alternatives.”

Dan Gordon CEO & Co-Founder of MyWorkDrive.
