File Server Enablement with Ransomware protection
For years, the file server has been the authoritative location of corporate data. Small to mid-size businesses and enterprises still accessing files through a virtual private network, (VPN) or file transfer protocol (FTP) in today’s world seems both inefficient and inconvenient.
“File Server Enablement,” or cloud enabling the file server, is a feature offered with SyncBox that allows syncing to occur between the file server and the cloud. File Server Enablement adds the cloud productivity layer to the file server, allowing employees to access business-critical documents from their phones, tablets and laptops, anywhere and at any time.
File Server Enablement will map the entire file and folder structure to users or team shares in the cloud. The files are synced completely once, and from then on only the revisions are synced to the cloud.
The Benefits of File Server Enablement – Say Goodbye to FTP and VPN (and yes… Dropbox)
Cloud enabling the file server allows users to, access, read and change corporate data located on the file server using web and mobile applications on their preferred devices. In addition they can, revise, share and collaborate on files located on the file server like never before. By providing anytime/anywhere access to business assets, File Server Enablement can radically increase employee and organizational productivity; employees no longer have to grapple with the file server manually downloading and uploading versions of files.
File Server Enablement reduces the dependence on traditional outdated ways of accessing the file server, including FTP and VPN, which can be slow, complicated and inconsistent. Additionally, SyncBox File Server Enablement is a viable alternative to risky employee end-runs such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, etc.
SyncBox file sharing server enablement gives administrators and business owners a global view of their clients and the file servers they manage. This type of insight can reduce costs, redundancies, lost data, and ultimately labor.. and most importantly, ransomeware threats.
As an administrator or business owner, cloud enabling a file server gives unprecedented control and complete transparency. For example, administrators can easily…
- Block or give file server access to new employees
- View the activities of existing users
- Track a file’s revision history
- Throttle bandwidth usage
- Remote wipe devices
