Use default authentication or directory services such as AD and LDAP to ensure that only authorized users can log in to FileCloud. 

2) Access control

Set up user and admin permissions to control who can access which data.

3) Data Encryption

Use encryption options for data in transit and at rest to protect its confidentiality and integrity.

4) Deployment and Network Hardening

Keep your infrastructure safe from unwanted access by using secure ports.

5) Governance

Fully employ FileCloud's governance features to make sure your data is safe and saved or deleted when it should be.

6) Secure file sharing

Ensure that users share files securely by setting up defaults such as share expiry dates, file change notifications, and download limits.

Deter attacks by using antivirus software, and limiting file extensions uploaded.

8) Maintaining a history of system actions

Configure audit logs to keep track of system events.

9) Client Device Protection and Management

Control user devices through remote client management, and use client application policies to set restrictions on actions.
