Why use FileCloud over OneDrive?

Basic Operations

FileCloud is a powerful Enterprise File Sharing and Synchronization (EFSS) solution that offers centralized device management, federated search, role-based access, metadata management, and much more. FileCloud also provides selective sync, virtual drive, unlimited storage, enhanced security features, endpoint backup, and built-in ransomware protection.

While OneDrive is a useful file sharing software, FileCloud is a much stronger alternative when it comes to handling the needs of enterprises. With top-notch security and a powerful administrative system, FileCloud was designed for and can be tailored to fit your organization’s every needs.

Security and Risk Management

FileCloud comes with security features such as an end-to-end encryption for uploading data, 256-bit AES encryption and SSL/TLS secure tunnel for data storage and transfer, smart data leak prevention, two-factor authentication, antivirus scanning, and ransomware protection.

OneDrive requires the purchase of additional modules for multiple Active Directories, Single Sign-on (SSO), SAML authentication, and integration with existing home directories. You gain access to these features and more with FileCloud, including device management to block devices, remote wipe, notification to devices, and endpoint backup.

Auditing and Compliance

FileCloud provides built-in auditing capabilities to cloud systems and keeps track of all the activities ranging from user information accessing the cloud to the changes that are made on the information stored. Additional functionalities help enterprises ensure data remains safe and meet standards and protocols such as HIPAA, FINRA, FIPS 140-2, and GDPR.

OneDrive deals with the security aspect of an enterprise that stores data on the cloud environment and supports security and risk management. From a compliance perspective, OneDrive follows the SWIFT control framework, MAS TRM guidelines, GDPR, SOX compliance, and IT auditing and reporting standards.
