Management & Access Control
When employees use personal file sync and share accounts for businesspurposes, you can wind up with data in different password-protectedlocations that you have no ability to access. The more places that sensitiveor confidential business data exists, the more likely it can be lost or accessedby unauthorized individuals. Recovery of older files can be particularlyproblematic when people use personal FSS accounts for business. It oftenmeans that, when someone leaves the company, the files leave with them.
Datto Drive brings employees together on a single business-grade FSSplatform. Our management portal is designed to give administratorscomplete oversight of their business’ data. Admins get granular, policy-basedaccess controls over user accounts. They can view files created by formeremployees, create or delete user accounts, edit account privileges, setstorage limits and more.
Consumer-class FSS utilities use public cloud infrastructure and encryptdata at rest to protect against security breaches. For most FSS users this is adequate, but many businesses have more stringent security requirements -- especially those that are subject to specific compliance regulations. For thesebusinesses, consumer-grade FSS security doesn’t pass muster.
Datto Drive offers business-class security options. Data can be encryptedin-flight using the secure TLS protocol as well as at rest in our cloud datacenters. The ability to encrypt data while it is being transferred givesbusinesses the end-to-end security they need. Datto Drive administrators can set different security levels for different types of data, as well. Also, DattoDrive has activity logging that enables users to see exactly who accessed and modified a document over the course of its lifespan. Finally, Datto’s cloud datacenters are owned, operated and maintained by the the company and featuretop-notch physical security measures.
Total Data Protection
Files on which users are actively collaborating are highly relevant to currentand future business. So, it’s important that users have the ability to quicklyrecover files that were accidentally deleted, corrupted or otherwise sullied. Datto Drive offers versioning, which allows users to rollback to previousversions of files without opening a helpdesk ticket. Self-service restoreincreases user productivity, while reducing the administrative burden on IT.
Datto also uses a variety of data integrity and protection methods to protectagainst data loss in its cloud data centers. Our 200+ PB cloud is designed toprevent data loss. Based on the ZFS filesystem, it has built-in data protectionmeasures including mirroring and data integrity checking. Also, data centersfeature N+1 or greater redundancy for all network components and systemcomponents to avoid data loss from hardware failure.
