On January 30th, SOS Online Backup’s CEO Ken Shaw discussed SOS Collaborate Private Cloud bringing an enhanced level of security to document management solutions:
“Consider an employee of a defense contractor using something like Dropbox. What happens to those files when the employee leaves the company? That’s enough to give any CIO or CTO heartburn,” said Ken Shaw, CEO of SOS Online Backup. “Think of SOS Collaborate as a secure, enterprise-friendly Dropbox that a company can host on their own infrastructure. I can put a file in the SOS Collaborate folder on my desktop, and immediately have it in the cloud. Then I can share it, edit it, access it from all my devices, and without realizing it as a user, I’m doing it all over my company’s own secure infrastructure.”
SOS Collaborate brings multiple document management features to organizations of any size.
- Large file sharing
- Web-based document editing, commenting, and group notifications
- Share secure links to files and folders
- Flexible administrative controls
- Audit trail reporting
