How enterprise file sync-and-share guards against data loss
Storage Magazine: Storage Gets Smarter
One of the distinguishing features of object storage systems is their ability to package more metadata with each object they store. That metadata could be used to restrict access, define a file’s lifecycle and its ultimate disposition. Other storage products are emerging that can do the same or similar type of data classification. This allows data management tasks to be automated via policies set by IT, thus creating smarter storage systems.
Enterprise file sync-and-share use has taken off in many organizations, but consumer file sync-and-share use can leave corporate data unprotected. In-house EFSS can help guard against data loss by giving IT oversight and control.
Today, organizations face a wide array of storage challenges. Luckily, there are myriad training and certification opportunities for IT pros looking to bolster their knowledge of the storage technologies.
