FileCloud Introduces Metadata System Across Private and Hybrid Cloud Storage for Enterprise Content Discovery

FileCloud, provider of a cloud-agnostic enterprise file sync and sharing solution, has added content discovery capabilities with metadata tagging features to empower enterprise organizations to organize and search files more fluidly.

The solution enables enterprises to organize and collaborate on information across any private, public, or hybrid cloud, said Madhan Kanagavel, CEO, FileCloud. With this release, metadata support unites critical content management capabilities with discovery to address day-to-day use cases in any industry.

According to FileCloud, enterprises using traditional folder and file hierarchies often struggle to organize files, discover content, and manage context associated with their files. FileCloud metadata system allows users to define and store custom data associated with their files. Later, the metadata can be used for seamless content discovery including pre-defined attributes such as list items, integers, decimals, dates, and boolean when needed.

The new capabilities will enable many advantages for speed and security, according to the company.

Instead of browsing through files spread across hundreds of folders, customers can organize files using metadata. For example, a marketing analyst can filter via the metadata attribute “website” and view all the files spread across many folders.

The ability to monitor whether security tagged files are shared with wrong permissions can reduce the risk of data leakage and provides better data governance. If a metadata set defines the security level of a group of files as high, medium, or low, administrators can search across all files labeled “high” and perform an audit.

And finally, because search and content discovery often requires a file’s specific name to locate, if a user doesn’t know the exact name of the file needed, it can be a time-consuming process. However, with broad metadata capabilities, FileCloud users can locate files easily searching metadata associated with files.

Metadata tagging is available now. More information is available at www.getfilecloud.com.
