Universal file access; sync across stationary and mobile devices. No more dependency on FTPs, VPNs, or file servers.
5-S provides file sync between PCs and mobile devices. It enables business users to sync sensitive corporate files between laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets, and the web. 5-S makes it possible for users to access all of their files on any device and to collaborate with colleagues, clients, and business partners.
5-S unleashes the power of mobility and maximizes the BYOD trend. Despite a diverse computing environment, 5-S let users be productive with their files, while giving essential control and visibility to administrators and business owners.
Unlike most consumer-grade file sync services, 5-S keeps business files safe by arming administrators with robust security and control features. Organizations can limit or control which devices are permitted to sync; completely audit file syncs and changes; remotely wipe the data from devices that are lost or stolen; and monitor and manage how employees are using their mobile devices.
448-bit Blowfish encryption on-device and in-transit
“Consumer cloud products — Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive and SugarSync — were built to protect insensitive documents, and some of those documents aren’t securely transferring across devices. 5-S File Services has the highest level of security for any cloud platform, ensuring that your sensitive documents (contracts, designs, client history) are safe from hacking and breaches. Note: some consumer products, like Google Drive, do not encrypt your data at all.”
Private encryption key management
“Consumer cloud products — Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive and SugarSync — are hosted publicly, meaning that everyone shares the same encryption key; when that encryption key is compromised, your businesses’ documents, your documents, and your personal documents will be vulnerable. This happened with Dropbox in August, 2012, when users had their logins and passwords stolen. With 5-S, you’ll have an encryption key that is exclusive to your business and documents, and not shared with anyone. You won’t have to worry about data loss.”
Remote wipes of endpoints and mobile devices
“Access to business documents is a privilege. With the FTP, VPN and file server, it is difficult to revoke the access that employees have. CSS 5-S File Services allows you to perform remote wipes of desktops for clients, former employees and rogue employees. This is complete control that businesses really need. Additionally, when an employee leaves, all files are auto deleted).”
Custom deleted file retention periods
“Consumer cloud products perform file trimming — that means that your deleted files are preserved for a very limited amount of time. If an employee (accidentally) deletes a file, it will be gone in a matter of weeks, or even days. With 5-S you can conveniently extend or shorten the deleted file retention periods, so that it you will never lose a file again.”
Granular user-access and security controls
“Each business has an organizational structure. CSS 5-S File Services allows you to set policies for individuals within your company, including which employees can share files, can delete files and revisions, access certain files, and what types of files they can upload. This administrative feature allows companies to provide certain employees with unique privileges.”
Revised file backup
“One of the biggest problems with VPN’s, FTP’s and file servers is the fear of file revision: when employee change/edit and upload a file, that file is permanently changed. Previous drafts and revisions are lost, permanently. CSS 5-S File Services stores file revisions which allow your employees to collaborate without worry.”
Managed file sharing for internal/external parties
What this means for you:
“You can share files with external parties through 5S and through unique web addresses. However, 5-S also allows you to monitor the files you shared within the company and externally. For example, you can see how many times the file has been downloaded, and set file expirations. Both of these features protect the propriety of your documents.”
Multiple folder backup (Documents, Desktop, Pictures, etc.)
“CSS 5-S File Services is customized for business needs, which means you’ll be able to sync all different file types. But because it’s tedious to sync and backup file-by-file, with 5-S you’ll be able to backup entire folders and the files within them.
