Support for Multi-Tenancy

The new multi-tenancy feature allows our partners serve multiple customers using single instance of FileCloud. The key value proposition of FileCloud multi-tenant architecture is that while providing multi-tenancy the data separation among different tenants is also maintained . Every tenant has the flexibility to customize their site branding and workflow as they wish.

With new multi-tenancy support anyone can launch their own Enterprise grade File Sync and Share service similar to Dropbox for Business or using existing data center infrastructure or using amazon IaaS.

Support for enforcing permissions on NTFS shares

Many organizations use the NTFS permissions to manage and control the access permissions for internal file shares.  It is very hard to duplicate the access permissions to other systems and keep it sync. Now FileCloud 6.0 enables access to internal file shares via web and mobile while honoring the existing NTFS file permissions.  This functionality is a great time saver for system administrators and provides a single point of management.
