Cybersecurity is no longer the sole domain of the IT department or chief technology officer, thanks in large part to the booming industry of cybercrime, malware, and ransomware-as-a-service. Everyone within an organization is responsible for network and IT security, regardless of their position.
However, as more people are tasked with cybersecurity responsibilities, mismanagement or even circumvention of cybersecurity protocols becomes likely – especially when a cybersecurity policy interferes with productivity or efficiency.
Additionally, more governments and industries around the world are establishing cybersecurity requirements to address user and data security concerns. The new year is already shaping up with an emphasis on artificial intelligence and regulatory compliance support. Now more than ever, it’s critical for organizations to implement cybersecurity solutions that are both easy to administer for IT professionals and easy to use for the layperson.
FileCloud v23.232 offers convenient compliance templates and streamlined security tools to make cybersecurity easy for everyone.
Ensuring that data is not only available but visible (searchable) is a major component in effective collaboration, data security, and compliance. FileCloud has long offered federated search, PII visibility, and content classification based on metadata and content.
With the latest release, FileCloud brings new enhancements to the Content Classification engine that powers FileCloud’s Smart Content Classification, including artificial intelligence, a visual rule builder, and a testing playground.
Admins can integrate FileCloud with OpenAI to classify content using artificial intelligence and natural language queries. For example, AI-powered classification can capture unpredictable content such as “PII that include names of individuals, addresses, and phone numbers.”
By overhauling the Smart Classification dashboard, we have made it so creating, testing, and deploying classification rules are simple and easy for people of all skill levels. In the previous iteration, FileCloud admins could enable automatic content scanning and metadata tagging for new files. In turn, this classification automated the application of sharing, retention, and DLP policies.
However, this process required some knowledge of coding and syntax, restricting the functionality to individuals with a certain level of technical knowledge and confidence. With FileCloud v23.232, department heads, team leads, and other business managers with admin-level privileges can easily create classification rules to automate file upload and policy application!
But that’s not all!
Admins will also be able to test out rules with a built-in simulator before deploying them in their environment. Furthermore, FileCloud can now integrate with OpenAI to classify content based on natural language.
These UI improvements ensure that automated content classification in FileCloud addresses a full range of data visibility needs without requiring specific expertise or a huge time investment to manually create rules.
As data privacy and security regulations expand across governments and industries, private and public sector organizations strive to implement necessary changes to support compliance.
Yet the maze of regulatory requirements can be difficult to comprehend. Additionally, the resources often required to evaluate IT infrastructure, identify gaps, and implement solutions can be costly. This is especially true for smaller organizations serving in critical sectors that may not have a dedicated IT budget or team (e.g., non-profit organizations, municipal governments, and private healthcare practices).
FileCloud’s Compliance Center, initially released with v21.2, helps ease compliance burdens. Compliance templates for ITAR, GDPR, and HIPAA connected regulatory requirements directly with FileCloud solutions for data control, security, and privacy.
As the compliance landscape has developed, so too has the Compliance Center. FileCloud v23.232 offers two new templates: the US Federal cybersecurity standard, NIST 800-171, and Saudi Arabia’s Personal Data Protection Law (PDPL). These new templates expand FileCloud’s ability to support and simplify compliance across a greater breadth of global regions and industries.
Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a critical tool when it comes to sharing classified, sensitive, or otherwise confidential data. FileCloud makes it easier than ever to share data using DRM protections with our Secure Web Viewer.
The Secure Web Viewer is accessible directly within FileCloud, in the same menu as FileCloud’s other hyper-secure sharing options. There is no need for users or admins to download a native client. This means that even the least technical end-user can send and receive DRM-protected documents directly through their FileCloud portal.
FileCloud’s latest release is a robust enhancement to our product, and we’re excited to share with clients and prospective customers. We believe these features will bolster compliance, data governance, and secure file sharing.
