“CTERA provides secure enterprise file services from edge to cloud with a two-tier architecture,” said Sabo Taylor Diab, Vice President Global Marketing at CTERA Networks. “We use a CTERA Edge Filer that sits in the branch office, and a CTERA Drive App that sites on the endpoint devices and provides full access to the data. It’s a fully cloud-agnostic platform that gives full ability to store and access the data. It addresses multiple use cases, with remote office filers, multi-site collaboration, and content distribution being the top three, with others including workspaces, VDI file services, endpoint backup and tiering and archiving. These are licenses for each use case.” Security is also a selling feature, with a 100 per cent in-firewall, source-based encryption, private key management, two factor authentication, remote data shredding capability, and full regulatory compliance, including FIPS 140, GDPR and HIPAA.
