Together this allow administrators to securely benefit from the cloud as an Enterprise-grade file server and storage solution, in the same way they previously enjoyed on-premise solutions like SharePoint and Windows servers.

"For UK cloud companies such a Storage Made Easy it is a route for UK Cloud companies such as ourselves to win government contracts."

About Storage Made Easy:
The Storage Made Easy EFSS solution
is storage agnostic and can be used as an Enterprise File Share and sync solution with one or more public or private storage clouds.
The solution allows IT to regain control of "cloud data sprawl" by unifying private / public company data and privately used employee cloud data solutions into a single converged infrastructure. This can easily be managed and be used to set and enforce governance and audit controls for file access and sharing in addition to providing deep content search of indexed data.
This approach provided a solution to the "shadow IT" conundrum and makes it possible for companies to find a balance between the protection of corporate data and employee data by allowing businesses to monitor, secure and audit all data silos, be they private or cloud or company or employee, from a single access point.
