FileCloud Recognized in List for “Top 10 Content Security Providers 2022”

FileCloud was recently named in the GRC Outlook’s listing of Top 10 Content Security Providers for 2022. This list, compiled by a panel of experts, assessed solutions that protect client-side environments using content security strategies.

Securing Content in 2023

Ransomware and cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated, prevalent, and expensive. An IBM report on data breaches revealed that a data breach in the United States costs, on average, $9.44 million. (Data breaches globally are lower, with an average cost of $4.35 million.)[1]

Having a layered defense in place, like firewalls, antivirus scanning, end-to-end encryption, and two-factor authentication, help reduce the attack surface of an environment. However, creating a comprehensive content security policy takes resources, time, and expertise to implement, which can serve as barriers to small businesses or enterprises with complex infrastructure.

Furthermore, there are many solutions on the market, ranging from singular plug-in style solutions to comprehensive platforms that provide an all-in-one experience.

Picking the solution that meets your business needs is a challenge, especially when trying to balance against budget, ease of use, vital functionalities, and future needs in line with business growth.

The FileCloud solution aims to give IT admins fine-tuned controls over the environments they’re tasked with maintaining, while also providing a flexible and easy-to-use platform for end-users. Functional use is married seamlessly with cutting-edge security tools and systems.

As a comprehensive solution, FileCloud provides an array of choices so you can deploy FileCloud in the manner that best meets your needs. Choose between cloud, hybrid, or on-premises environments, with additional configurations to meet government regulations. Run FileCloud on a FIPS-enabled environment, opt for maximum security with 256-bit AES encryption, or deploy in GovCloud for a compliant, cloud-enabled solution.

Selecting your deployment model is only the beginning. FileCloud incorporates powerful security features, so you maintain control over your data without sacrificing user experience. Features include:

  • AES 128- or 256-bit encryption for data at rest

  • Zero Trust File SharingSM

Zero Trust File SharingSM

Zero Trust has become a hot topic when it comes to cybersecurity trends for 2023. We wrote a blog post about it, discussing how Zero Trust is being emphasized as the leading strategy to address cybersecurity concerns.

FileCloud understands how important a Zero Trust approach will be when it comes to securing sensitive data. That’s why we developed and recently launched our newest feature: Zero Trust File SharingSM.

End users can create and share Zero Trust files and folders, expanding on FileCloud’s hyper-secure collaboration potential. This new feature enables seamless coordination between internal and external teams. Clients, stakeholders, vendors, and partners benefit from easy access, while employees maintain control over data within a Zero Trust framework.

Zero Trust File SharingSM functions via FileCloud Zip file support to provide perimeterless security for data in transit in three easy steps:

  1. Create a Zip file
  2. Add password-protection
  3. Upload the necessary data

Users can then update, view, and even share Zip files with collaborators, much like any other file or folder in FileCloud. The Zero Trust password is never stored in FileCloud, ensuring that data is protected in case of a breach.

Shared Zip files can be set with read-only or read-write permissions. Users with read-only access can preview or download files. Users with read-write access can preview and download files, as well as add or delete files.
