Rating Stars Image 4.5

NetApp Filer is a highly scalable Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution. NetApp Filers are high-performance servers used by large enterprises to store documents and files while making them available as network shares via LAN. They are typically exposed as CIFS or NFS shares in Windows or Linux and offer low latency access to large files within the organization.

COVID-19 Challenges

Many organizations are instituting work-from-home policies for non-essential employees due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Accessing and sharing files stored in Netapp Filer storage is one of the major challenges you might find you and your team needing to overcome, as file servers are often only accessible through the local area network. After all, VPN access is complicated and prone to security issues, especially when mobile devices come into play. Staying compliant with data-security regulations can also be a challenge when new users start accessing sensitive files from home.

How Can FileCloud Help?

FileCloud can help employees working from home access enterprise file shares stored in any Netapp Filer system. Users can receive seamless access to all files without using a VPN. FileCloud also integrates with all of your organization’s existing IT systems (AD, NTFS and storage appliances such as NetApp FAS). With FileCloud, no migration of files and NTFS permissions is required, saving massive amounts of work and time.

Secure Remote Access

Securely access your enterprise data using any device, without a VPN. We offer multiple ways to access your organization’s files securely via web access, network drive, sync and mobile apps.

Mapped as Drive

Store your remote files in a local drive on your computer, and access them quickly and easily!

File Locking

File locking prevents accidental overriding by stopping multiple team members from opening, accessing or editing files at the same time. This lock can also prevent other users from downloading, or viewing file contents by other users.

Unlimited Versioning

Unlimited file versioning helps users rollback to any previous version of the file in case any unwanted changes are done to any file. FileCloud preserves unlimited versions of each file.

Ransomware Protection

Protect your data by automatically running anti-virus scan when uploading files. FileCloud’s heuristic file content scanning engine detects and blocks ransomware.

CIFS/NFS Support

CIFS and NFS are the primary file systems used in Windows/ Linux storage. FileCloud can easily parse existing file/ folder permissions to support CIFS/ NFS systems.

Active Directory Integration

Seamlessly integrate with Enterprise LDAP as well as Microsoft Active Directory support. Merge user accounts from existing systems.
