The new File Fabric Slack application enables on-premises and on-cloud files to be securely shared through Slack
Storage Made Easy (SME) has announced that they have released a Slack Application for integration with the File Fabric Slack. This new integration allows users to set security controls on how long a file can be shared for, the number of times the file can be accessed, and adds encryption and/or password protection to access the file.
Slack is a cloud-based collaboration tool that connects teams, providing a single place for messaging, tools and files. Users of the privately hosted, or on-cloud, versions of the SME File Fabric, can now take advantage of the Slack integration for ultra-secure file sharing with team members.
The File Fabric supports over 60 storage connectors enabling shared file access with Slack from WebDav and Windows Filers, in addition to Cloud solutions such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Storage, Google Cloud Storage, IBM COS, Cloudian, OpenStack Swift, SFTP, FTP, and many more.
Jim Liddle CEO said: “As a tech company we use Slack and in truth part of the reason for developing the integration was for our own use. We wanted the ability for private file sharing through Slack for files we store on filers in our offices, as well as files that are stored on public cloud infrastructure such as Amazon, Google or Azure. We think many companies will want to use it in a similar way.”
Customers use the Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Fabric to unify corporate data islands and provide a ‘single pane of glass’ for security, encryption, audit, data discovery and content search.
