New partnership announcement: Fordway teams up with FileCloud

Jan 16, 2023

We are delighted to announce that Fordway has teamed up with FileCloud to enable enterprises to better manage, share and protect their files. FileCloud’s hyper-secure system includes a Compliance Center, Workflow Automation, and Zero Trust File Sharing.

With FileCloud, users can access and share files safely from anywhere, on any device, in complete security; whether your data is in Azure, AWS, on-premises, or hosted with a third party.

FileCloud offers seamless remote access, advanced file backup, sharing, and synchronization from PCs, mobile phones, and tablets. You can implement FileCloud to manage your own servers and NAS devices. As well as this, FileCloud can help to manage Microsoft Azure files and BLOB storage, AWS EFS and S3 storage and compatible storage from other public cloud providers.

With FileCloud you get to define where your data is stored, not the service provider. The fully integrated, enterprise-grade platform supports workflow automation and granular control of content sharing. You can also transfer files or create a collaboration space where files are stored that can be accessed at anytime from anywhere, without the need for a VPN.

Richard Blanford, Chief Executive of Fordway, commented, ‘’FileCloud fills a key niche in our portfolio to help customers better secure, share and manage their file data. It’s a simple, cost-effective solution rather than having to implement complex document and content management systems, which gives our customers control over data sovereignty and data governance that cloud-hosted shares can’t provide. We’re looking forward to working with FileCloud and building on our success with our first mutual customer.’’

Andy O’Gorman, EMEA Channel Partner Manager at FileCloud added, “We are absolutely delighted to announce Fordway as our latest Certified Reseller Partner in the UK. Fordway’s excellent pedigree and technical expertise within the mid-size UK Enterprise sector made this partnership a no-brainer for FileCloud as we know they are an ideal partner to help us achieve our ambitious plans for growth in this region – and we have already started to see proof of this in the early deals we have won together.’’

In a nutshell, Fordway customers can expect:

Secure File Sharing

FileCloud offers easy, secure shared access to your files for seamless remote working, with a set of features to help you protect your files. These security features include limiting the number of downloads, setting the time that files will be available for download, setting files as view only, restricting uploads, protecting download links with passwords, and more.

Simple Remote Access and Sync

The big advantage of having a secure cloud storage solution like FileCloud is having access to your files from anywhere using any device, FileCloud offers you multiple alternatives to access your organization’s files securely without a VPN. You can access your files via the web, a virtual drive, a mobile app, and browser add-ons.

Hyper-Security

256-bit AES encryption and SSL/TLS protocols secure data at rest and in transit. Active Directory and NTFS integration, two-factor authentication, and SSO (Single Sign-on) bring FileCloud into the pre-existing organisational infrastructure. Admins can rest assured knowing that certain security features are automatically built into the FileCloud platform while others can be enabled as needed.

These features include client application security policies, automatic anti-virus scanning of files upon upload, unlimited file versioning and file locking, custom metadata and content classification, endpoint device protection, comprehensive audit trails, and federated search capabilities.

Compliance

Data compliance is an evolving standard for security, as new technology and threats develop. FileCloud is responsive to the changing industry needs and regulatory landscape, offering a Compliance Centre as a standard feature. The Compliance Center provides an easy-to-use dashboard that connects FileCloud’s features and tools with regulatory requirements. Included GDPR, HIPAA, and ITAR configurations support compliance officers, IT admins, and CTOs in building a more robust compliance strategy.

Customisation

FileCloud is designed so that admins and users can customise their experience from beginning to end, and implement specific workflows for authorisation, control, and management of an organisations’ data.  FileCloud offers FileCloud Online (hosted by FileCloud), FileCloud Server (hosted on your own server and behind your firewalls), or a hybrid option of the two. Admins can customise other important aspects of the system like branding (your logos, your colours) and communication (ToS, emails, default language).

Control

FileCloud provides advanced Digital Rights Management (or DRM) that prevents unauthorised access, screenshotting, printing, and copying; data retention policies and various administrative features to maintain control over data such as file analytics and reports; role-based access to system administrators, and device management to manage all connected devices to maintain audit trails.

FileCloud’s focus has always been centred around keeping content collaboration secure while creating an easy-to-use interface for users and admins. Data control and protection is key for all companies, but truly necessary for sectors such as the Public Sector, Banking, Financial Services & Insurance, Healthcare, Pharma & Life Sciences, Aerospace & Defence, Manufacturing and Tech. FileCloud’s hyper-security and compliance options make it the prime solution for enterprises and government agencies.

Fordway is looking forward to bringing FileCloud on board and adding the powerful file management tool to our portfolio of IT solutions.
