About Storage Made Easy:
Storage Made Easy is the trading name of Vehera LTD which has offices in the UK, USA and Switzerland. The SME solution allows IT to regain control of “cloud datasprawl” 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.
