Dubai, July 30, 2014 - Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security and positioned by Gartner in the Leaders Quadrant for User Authentication1, is expanding its CloudEntr access management service with a new feature for secure file sharing. CloudEntr is the all-in-one solution for securely managing logins and files in the Cloud. Companies using the solution can immediately benefit from the single sign-on (SSO) and two-factor authentication capabilities applied to file-sharing, for secure and convenient collaboration between employees, partners, and end customers.
CloudEntr offers IT managers centralized administration to control access and gain visibility into business applications and file exchanges. The new file encryption and sharing feature enables users to easily upload and share files through their online vault. Users can also set access permissions at the individual-and group- levels, from read-only to full-access. The high-end security provided by CloudEntr offers the industry’s most advanced encryption method2, and the added protection of separating the management of encryption keys in CloudEntr from the storage service holding the encrypted files.
“While more companies are migrating to the Cloud for its convenience and cost benefits, data breach prevention remains a major challenge to achieving the level of trust and confidence companies need to fully embrace cloud services,” said Francois Lasnier, senior vice president of Identity & Access at Gemalto. “CloudEntr leverages Gemalto’s expertise in strong authentication to offer a holistic solution that places data protection and access management directly in the hands of businesses of any size, so that they can capitalize on their cloud investment without compromising security.”
