Many organizations have turned to document collaboration and management platforms including Microsoft SharePoint, Office 365, Dropbox and other cloud solutions to store and collaborate on this unstructured content.
However, many companies still use traditional File Shares where terabytes of data are continue to be stored and accessed. Some will migrate that content over to systems like SharePoint; others will continue to store and archive information in existing repositories.
With so much focus on new systems and the cloud, how are access and compliance being managed on your legacy file shares? The same data privacy and security concerns that apply to newer technologies are equally important for legacy systems.
NC Protect offers dynamic, real-time data loss prevention for Windows file shares and Nutanix Files. It continuously monitors and audits data and documents stored and shared on Windows File Shares against regulatory and corporate policies to protect against data breaches, unauthorized access, and misuse.
The NC Protect Difference: File Level Access and Sharing Control
NC Protect uses metadata-driven, file level security to restrict access to, encrypt, track and prevent the emailing of File Share content based upon the presence of sensitive or non-compliant information, offering content-aware data loss protection (DLP) capabilities for Windows File Shares. Organizations also using SharePoint for storage and collaboration can leverage NC Protect’s rules across both platforms to centrally manage policies, classifications and controls.
Based upon the business rules associated with its classification, access to a document or content item within a File Share can be restricted to a specific individual or group, even if a wider audience has access to the site or library where the item physically resides. With file level permissions, administrators can reduce the number of folder locations that get created (folder location proliferation) just to cope with another set of collaborative users. Managing file permissions with NC Protect is easy since they are based on the metadata values added at the time of classification.
