Using IDPWorkDrive, organizations can provide secure and easy file access to their employees. IDPWorkDrive supports the complex username/password requirements built into Active Directory (hosted domain) as well as DUO two-factor authentication. All data exchanged transmitted is encrypted using SSL, a standard security technology for encrypting data transmission. IDPWorkDrive ensures data is fully encrypted using advanced AES 256 encryption with TLS 1.2 during transmission. In addition, IDPWorkDrive fully supports accessing files encrypted with Windows Server file encryption (Encryption at rest).
With native support for NTFS and Access Based Enumeration no login information or access to files is ever stored or used by IDPWorkDrive. All file access is granted in the context of the currently logged on user only. As an additional security precaution we have designed IDPWorkDrive so that it is not possible to grant more privileges to shares in IDPWorkDrive than are already provisioned in Windows under NTFS - we inherit existing permissions providing for least privilege access.
IDPWorkDrive software has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust rating of enterprise-ready for its IDPWorkDrive Secure FileShare remote access software. Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides an objective and detailed evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
Data Retention and Archiving
IDPWorkDrive allows customers to enable cloud access to files with existing data retention and archiving policies. Since no data is ever changed or stored by IDPWorkDrive, existing backup software, archiving and data retention procedures may be maintained or customized to meet the needs of the business. With the entire suite of Windows server features still available, IDPWorkDrive can be configured to meet the needs of organizations of any size. Should the customer ever need to restore data, retrieval is simple since it remains in NTFS format. Typical Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) products require backing up complicated SQL databases and restoring entire virtual machines sometimes many years later. With IDPWorkDrive customers need only restore the original NTFS bases file system.
Logging and Reporting
All access, modifications, deletions and user activity is logged. Any file changes are logged with an audit trail and information about who changed the file and when (Date and Time) it was changed. Audit logs can be searched based on keywords or exported as needed for additional discovery and reporting.
Data Loss Prevention
IDPWorkDrive helps organizations prevent file records from accidental deletion. If a user deletes any sensitive files, this information is logged. Since IDPWorkDrive ties into Windows Server shadow copies, previous versions or deleted files can be restored easily. IDPWorkDrive administrators can also enable our Data Loss Prevention (DLP) feature which allows users to only edit or view, but not download or delete files at the share, user or global system level.
IDPWorkDriveâ€™s integration with Windows Search (all versions) and Search enables users to search for files by name or content within the files. Only files the user has permissions to are returned in any search results. All access controls are maintained and presented to the user.
Access Based Enumeration
IDPWorkDrive integrates with Windows Server Access Based File Enumeration feature. Users only see folders for files for which they have Active Directory permissions. This ensures that users only see files they have permissions to on the Windows file shares and overrides any folder shares made available to them in IDPWorkDrive for least privilege access. This feature is enabled by default in IDPWorkDrive and does not require manual or duplicate permissions management by the systems administrator.
Robust Remote Access
IDPWorkDrive provides multiple options for secure remote access. Our browser based web interface provides the most elegant and functional user experience in the industry without requiring syncing of documents to local PCâ€™s and enables users to edit documents online in Office 365 without moving them to the cloud (IDPWorkDrive is the only software vendor that provides this option). In addition, IDPWorkDrive provides our mapped drive and mobile clients that enhance and improve end user productivity for anywhere file access without the security concerns and management of VPN's.
