CodeLathe has released the latest version of its Tonido FileCloud, an on-premises enterprise file sharing and mobile access solution. The solution offers new file sharing, security and administrative features to enable complete and seamless integration with enterprise IT systems.
Living strictly within an organization’s four walls, the private cloud solution offers organizations complete ownership of their infrastructure and data while providing web-based and mobile access. It has been chosen by NASA, the YMCA, St. Claire University, the University of South Carolina, the Government of Gibraltar, Hyperion Technology and Societe Generale, among others,
"We tested a variety of cloud storage solutions, but costs were prohibitive, the servers weren’t on premises, and they were not customizable in the options we needed to implement,” said Kevin Hera, IT Manager, Scheck Industries, a national industrial contractor. Hera cited FileCloud’s use of Active Directory as a means of authentication and on-premises installation as two primary reasons Scheck Industries went with the solution.
“We chose FileCloud because it allowed us to ensure that all data is kept secure within the corporate network as well as backed up,” said Dean Mather, IT Manager, Call Design, a consulting firm that specializes in workforce optimization. “Ultimately, we have total control over out information.”
Tonido offers privacy and support for iOS, Android, Windows 8 and Blackberry devices.
File Sharing: Users can now share files with external partners via the web and mobile devices. External partners who are not users can also upload files to FileCloud. Users can also re-share files and folders, share with groups and download a whole directory or multiple files as a compressed zip file.
Security: Mixed mode authentication now allows admins to add users who are not part of their organization’s Active Directory. Furthermore, integration with ClamAV, an open source antivirus engine, now detects and prevents viruses from being uploaded into FileCloud. The system’s enhanced dashboard also offers additional system statistics including log folder size, groups, network shares and user shares. Deleted files and folders can now be restored with new recycle bin support.
Administration: Admins can integrate FileCloud groups with existing Active Directory groups and existing user home directories via CIFS using the new Smart Mount feature. The new update also provides simple REST API’s to allow easy provisioning of user accounts. Finally, FileCloud now provides a one-click button for updates, access to shared files using WebDAV protocol and multi-tenancy support, which allows the admin to run multiple instances of FileCloud on the same Apache server.
