Flexible and Intuitive Data Compliance

Data security and compliance are two overlapping yet distinct concepts. Security involves all the tools, protocols, hardware, and software that go into protecting data from unauthorized or malicious access. Data compliance indicates that minimum levels of security required by regulations have been met. Different regulations may set standards for one element of data (e.g., storage, sharing permissions, password requirements, etc.) or the entire platform (encryption, retention policies, admin capabilities, etc.).

Regulations leveraged by industries, countries, and global institutions ensure that organizations have sufficient infrastructure and protocols in place to protect sensitive data from loss, misuse, corruption, or theft. These protective standards are increasingly important as more data is generated and physical data is digitized.

Responsive to Industry Needs

Data compliance is an evolving standard for security, as new technology and threats develop. Requirements are updated, which makes compliance a moving target. A proper solution is responsive to the changing industry needs and regulatory landscape. As an enterprise-grade, file storage and sharing platform, FileCloud is committed to developing real solutions for security and compliance needs. This includes maintaining an evolving knowledge of requirements and the creation of innovative tools that address regulatory pain points.

Compliance-Conscious Tools

FileCloud offers powerful and intuitive tools that help address data compliance requirements. The examples listed here are just a few of the features you can leverage within your FileCloud environment. Take the tour to find out how FileCloud can support your data compliance strategy.

  • Data Leak Protection (DLP) – through custom metadata sets and a content classification engine, admins can build an automated array of DLP rules to safeguard data and prevent leaks.
  • Digital Rights Management (DRM) is another tool that helps protect confidential documents, files, and e-books against unauthorized copying and distribution. Limit sharing, printing, and screenshots, encrypt files and folders, and revoke access at any time.
  • The Compliance Center is an easy-to-use dashboard that connects FileCloud’s features and tools with regulatory requirements. GDPR, HIPAA, and ITAR configurations support compliance officers, IT admins, and CTOs in building a more robust compliance strategy.

Data Anonymization

Integrated protections scan file and folder uploads for potential threats. Endpoint backups protect data and minimize loss.

Data Leak Prevention

DLP provides protection throughout the data lifecycle. Admins can create and modify rules easily to safeguard files and folders.
