Enterprises, especially those in highly-regulated industries like financial services and healthcare, need to be able to control file sharing based on the content inside the files themselves. Through integrations with leading data loss prevention (DLP) systems, ShareFile will classify items based on their content and enforce sharing restrictions based on data categories.
Key benefits include:
- Leverages customers’ existing DLP systems – no additional costs for customers
- Files uploaded to ShareFile on-prem are classified by DLP system for data security and compliance
- IT admins able to view restricted file activity in both their DLP system and ShareFile
- Once connected, ShareFile restricts actions on files based on the customer’s DLP classification
Example: Employee uploads document containing restricted data (social security number), which violates company policy, the DLP system classifies the document, ShareFile accepts document and then automatically restricts further action to the file.
Customer-managed StorageZones data in Amazon Web Services
ShareFile StorageZones gives IT the flexibility to choose where data is stored. Customer-managed StorageZones can now be deployed in Amazon Web Services, with full support for data storage in Amazon S3. This enhanced support enables businesses to benefit from the elasticity and flexibility of the cloud while maintaining ownership of their own data and encryption keys.
ShareFile continues to strengthen in this area and remains the leading EFSS provider with the most flexible on-prem and hybrid storage options available for customers: customer-managed datacenters, private cloud storage services from Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services, or a combination of both (on-prem and hosted in the cloud).
Increase Data Protection
Restricted StorageZones is an option for customer-managed StorageZones that increases data protection. Files and metadata in a Restricted StorageZone are encrypted with your keys, and access is limited to users in your enterprise.
