Public cloud services such as Dropbox are increasingly often used for the sharing of large files and making them digitally accessible. These products are often free and user-friendly. It goes without saying that cloud solutions are also popular in the business world. The downside, however, is that in many cases the data is stored in American data centres, giving the government access to all of this data. Despite the fact that some cloud services also opened European data centres this past year, Bart Jenniskens, Information Security Officer at BDO Global IT believes that public cloud services are not suitable for his organisation. By using a safe alternative, the storage and sharing of large files is just as easy.
THE FILECAP SOLUTION
Jenniskens: “The teams of BDO Global IT work on IT projects which also include the sharing of large files. This happens daily between colleagues, but also with external organisations. Our company network lacked the necessary structure and, at the same time, BDO applies the rules that we never put company information in the public cloud. This created a conflicting situation, of course. That is why we started looking for a storage service that offers the benefits of a public cloud service while being absolutely secure and which we could manage ourselves. We found this in FileCap”. Jenniskens and his colleagues compared various and different solutions. The main requirement was that the server is not hosted in a public cloud, but in the secured BDO environment. Jenniskens: “The solution that fitted our demands the most was FileCap. The product is easy to use; after logging in, you can start using it straight away. The FileCap server has no connection with other systems and is thus no threat to the network. Furthermore, the implementation is a piece of cake; you install it and it works.”
FileCap is a safe alternative for public cloud services
“The FileCap Server is located in the company’s own data centre and is also managed by BDO. If we have a problem or question, we can, of course, contact the people at FileCap as they have an extensive network and security expertise and are always ready to offer support. We have been using FileCap since 2015, to the full satisfaction of the BDO Global It teams who are stationed around the world and consist of 150 employees. FileCap gives us a safe alternative for public cloud services without having to burden our own network unnecessarily. A perfect solution!”
