Private Cloud File Sharing
Why Private Cloud File Sharing? Do you wonder how secure your data is in the cloud? Does your organization have concerns that cloud storage providers may be legally compelled to disclose sensitive company data to authorities without informing you? There are frequent news reports of cyberattacks, data breaches, millions of compromised passwords, and information leaks happening on a daily basis.
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. Organizations 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, organizations 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. Simply install our software on a Windows server into a domain and integrate seamlessly with existing file shares without migrating files.
What Is a Private Cloud?
According to Gartner, 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 organizations 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 and in the organization’s private data center or virtual server solely under their management and control. 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. Lastly, a 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
A public cloud is a form of cloud computing accessible over the internet and shared among various organizations, unlike cloud computing exclusively dedicated to a single organization. A hybrid cloud combines public and private cloud resources. Generally, when files are moved to a public cloud, they are often converted into proprietary formats, which can tie the customer to that particular cloud provider. MyWorkDrive addresses these challenges with our portal software designed for Windows File Servers. MyWorkDrive enables immediate cloud access to a conventional File Server or NAS. This allows users to enjoy cloud benefits without sacrificing security or transferring files to cloud storage services that enforce vendor dependency. Enterprises can conveniently implement our file server sharing software to facilitate secure online access to cloud files.
