Private Cloud File Sharing
Why Private Cloud File Sharing? Do you wonder how secure your data is in the cloud? Is your company concerned that legally any cloud storage provider may be required by law to provide sensitive company files to authorities without your knowledge? Consider a few reports on data breaches: On a daily basis the news is rife with reports of attacks, data breaches, millions of passwords hacked and information leaks.
When files are stored in the cloud instead of on an on-premise file share many companies have found they need to plan for significant investments in increased bandwidth and redundant internet connections to come close to the speed and availability of private cloud file shares. Companies also run into additional support costs supporting sync clients that fill up hard drives, chew up company bandwidth and cause end user frustrations. With MyWorkDrive software, companies no longer need to choose between costly and insecure public cloud file sharing or complex migrations to locally hosted sync and share SQL based servers. Enterprises simply install our software on a Windows server into their domain and integrate seamlessly with existing file shares without migrating files.
What Is a Private Cloud?
According to Gartner Private Cloud Computing Private cloud computing is a form of cloud computing that is used by only one organization, or that ensures that an organization is completely isolated from others. When running a private cloud computing services are offered either over the Internet or a private internal network that are only available to a select set of users instead of the general public. In addition, a private cloud is typically managed and controlled by internal IT staff to prevent data leakage, breaches and information sharing with external entities. This gives companies many of the benefits of a public cloud – including self-service, scalability, and productivity – with the additional control and security available from dedicated resources over a computing infrastructure hosted on-premises, in the company’s private data center or virtual server under their management and control only. In addition, private clouds deliver a higher level of security and privacy through both company firewalls and permissioning to ensure operations and sensitive data are not accessible to third-party providers. Private cloud is not always on-premise – it’s really about who controls data privacy, not where it’s located or managed.
Public Cloud Migration & Vendor Lock-in
Public cloud is cloud computing that’s delivered via the internet and shared across organizations as opposed to cloud computing that is dedicated solely to your organization. A hybrid cloud is an environment that uses leverages both public and private clouds. Typically files migrated to public cloud are converted and stored in proprietary file formats locking customer into the vendor. MyWorkDrive solves these issues with our portal software for Windows File Servers. With MyWorkDrive, a traditional File Server or NAS is immediately made available in the cloud. Users experience the cloud without compromising security or migrating files to cloud storage providers that require Vendor Lock-In. Enterprises can easily deploy our file server sharing software to provide secure online cloud file access. Learn More
