Gladinet, a leading provider of access and collaboration solutions for file servers and clouds, has announced the availability of an upgraded iOS client that can automatically backup photos and videos from company-owned iPhones and iPads to a company-controlled file server or private cloud.
Generally known for its ability to remotely access and share files over the internet using file servers or private clouds, CentreStack’s secure file sharing platform now includes Media Backup. This allows enterprises to maintain complete control of sensitive photos and videos by replicating them to corporately owned file servers. Or, if enterprises replicate the data to a private cloud, control is preserved by maintaining control of the private keys used for encryption, thereby preventing third party access.
Consumer oriented media backup solutions such as iCloud and Google Photo usually fail to meet these requirements by forcing enterprises to store corporate data on third party servers. Though convenient, this may not serve an organization’s best interests if iOS devices capture sensitive recordings, photos, plans and schematics that should remain private. Even in less sensitive situations—like an architect using an iPad to take pictures of buildings, real estate agents taking pictures of houses, or marketing personnel creating a company wide photo library—businesses may often prefer a media backup that sends pictures and videos directly from company owned iOS devices to private, company owned file servers instead of an individual's iCloud backup stored on Apple’s servers.
Furthermore, when consumer grade services store data in the cloud, they usually have to access private encryption keys. For example, a recent Reuter’s exclusive exposed Apple’s access to its customers’ private encryption keys, allowing them to access any iCloud backups. And while we’re certainly not suggesting nefarious intent, many companies would prefer to store iOS backups on corporate servers for privacy or compliance reasons. More urgently, their desire to avoid the increased risk of attacks from hackers tempted by the enormous amounts of customer data that the encryption keys stored by Apple provide access to.
In reference to CentreStack’s enhanced capability to meet these requirements, Franklyn Peart, Gladinet’s CRO and Co-Founder noted, “Our customers are finding more incentives to provide remote access and collaboration with on-premises file sharing solutions. And CentreStack has always been known for data privacy, whether providing remote access to file servers on-premises or making it easier to create cloud file servers. So we’re excited by the opportunity to provide our customers and partners a new Media Backup feature that reflects our continued focus on providing data privacy, security and sovereignty without compromising user experience.”
