FileCloud announces Zero Trust File Sharing that will provide an extra degree of hyper-security to one of the most sophisticated content collaboration platform available.
Users will be able to securely interact with external partners, clients, and vendors in addition to other employees by using FileCloud’s Zero Trust File Sharing feature. This feature displays more than just changing share permissions or establishing Data Loss Prevention (DLP) rules. Businesses and organisations that work with valuable or classified data, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Confidential Unclassified Information (CUI), will be more and more forced to use zero trust file sharing (PII).
A hyper-secure content collaboration platform (CCP), FileCloud is a major industry provider of data governance, compliance, data leak protection, data retention, and digital rights management features. The entire CCP stack is completely integrated with granular control of content sharing across the majority of enterprise platforms and workflow automation.
The platform provides strong file syncing, mobile access, and sharing features on private, public, and hybrid cloud. Millions of people utilise FileCloud, which has its headquarters in Austin, Texas, including top Global 1000 companies, educational institutions, governmental agencies, and managed service providers.
“With FileCloud’s Zero Trust File Sharing, an enterprise can implement secure file sharing throughout their network as part of a larger Zero Trust strategy,” stated Anis Abdul, CTO, at FileCloud. “Zero Trust File Sharing will also support compliance with federal and global information security regulations as well as organization-wide cybersecurity policies that mandate limited access to sensitive data.”
The emergence of remote access software, cloud service technologies and the disappearing network edge has revealed weaknesses in perimeter-based IT security architectures. Regardless of the source of request for access, identity authentication is enforced by the Zero Trust architecture, which is built on a concept of least privilege.
A Zero Trust Strategy and Roadmap was recently released by the US Department of Defense. It will eventually apply to all government departments of United States and is expected to be adopted by the commercial sector. To protect their data systems from increasingly complex cyberattacks launched by nation states, major infrastructure sectors are excellent candidates to adopt Zero Trust File Sharing. Businesses can add an additional layer of protection on top of FileCloud’s built-in access controls thanks to its support for Zero Trust. To safeguard data within the environment, Zip file structures and password protection are used to achieve Zero Trust. The user will have the ability to specify a Zero Trust password and create a sharing link to a file or folder.
The information cannot be accessed without this password, regardless of whether a direct link is supplied or a breach happens. Even if the Zero Trust protected file is accessed by social engineering techniques or another method, the data is still secured by password-based encryption.
Ray Downes, FileCloud’s CEO said,“FileCloud already works with several governments around the world to provide hyper-secure content collaboration, file sharing, and workflow automation. Many of the building blocks for a Zero Trust environment exist within FileCloud, including role-based access, audit logs, encryption, and granular permissions. Developing a Zero Trust File Sharing solution further augments the platform’s capabilities when it comes to securing data, both within and beyond an organization’s network perimeter.”
The ability of authorised users to alter or modify the data in the Zero Trust folders will likewise be restricted when they use the Zero Trust passcode to access the data. Recipients of the sharing link will have read-versus-write restrictions depending on the share permissions. As part of a full Zero Trust strategy, Zero Trust File Sharing develops a hyper-secure, user-driven, file-sharing container that expands cooperation outside an organization’s IT perimeter.
