Version 7 Preview Webinar Scheduled

We are excited to announce the Webinar of MyWorkDrive Server 7.0 soon to be released to preview. Version 7 adds many new features and enhancements including Azure AD(Entra) native authentication and Azure file shares over API support.

Join our resident experts Thursday, November 16th, 2023 at 9:00 AM PST (12:00 PM EDT, 4:00 PM UTC) where we will demonstrate the use cases for MyWorkDrive and 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 API’s and Azure AD/Entra. By providing Azure File Share access over API this greatly simplifies setup, reduces 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 API’s 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.

Road Map Review

We will discuss upcoming new features and enhancements planned for Q4 and 2024.
