FileCloud | January 11, 2023
On January 10, 2023, FileCloud announced the addition of Zero Trust File Sharing, bringing another layer of hyper-security to the market's most robust content collaboration platform. The latest, Zero Trust File Sharing, enables users to collaborate securely with employees along with other personnel, including external partners, vendors and clients.
This functionality extends beyond modulating share permissions or setting Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies. Zero Trust File Sharing will become increasingly crucial for enterprises and organizations that handle sensitive or protected data, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Confidential Unclassified Information (CUI).
The emergence of cloud service technologies, remote access applications, and disappearing network edges have revealed multiple vulnerabilities in perimeter-based IT security models. The Zero Trust framework, built on a system of least privilege, provides a more resilient and adaptable approach that imposes identity authentication, regardless of where or how the request for access gets derived.
The U.S. Department of Defense has recently come up with a Zero Trust Strategy and Roadmap to eventually cover all U.S. government departments, which is likely to be adopted by the private sector. As a result, critical infrastructure sectors are ideal candidates for integrating Zero Trust File Sharing to protect their information systems from increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks launched by nation-states.
FileCloud's Zero Trust support enables enterprises to have an added layer of security on top of FileCloud's built-in access controls. The data within the environment is secured using a Zip file structure and password protection. The user can also set a Zero Trust password and create a sharing link to a file or folder.
The data remains inaccessible without this password, even with a shared direct link or in case of a data breach. Furthermore, the data remains protected by password-based encryption even if the Zero Trust protected folder is accessed via unauthorized means, including social engineering techniques.
Users who access the data with the Zero Trust password will also be restricted in their ability to edit or manipulate the data contained within the Zero Trust folder based on the share permissions.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, FileCloud is a leading hyper-secure content collaboration platform (CCP) providing data governance, industry-leading compliance, data leak protection, data retention and digital rights management capabilities to millions of users worldwide. Its complete CCP stack includes workflow automation and granular control of content sharing across most enterprise platforms. The platform offers powerful file sharing, mobile access and synchronization capabilities on public, private, and hybrid clouds to customers, including top Global 1000 enterprises, government organizations, educational institutions and managed service providers.
