Authentic8 Extends Virtual Browser Capability With Secure Cloud-Based Storage

IT Administrators Using Authentic8 Silo Can Now Configure Encrypted, Cloud-Based Storage for Users and Groups

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2015) -  Authentic8, the leading provider of virtual browsers for the enterprise, has released secure, cloud storage options for organizations seeking to manage sensitive files. Authentic8 Cloud Storage combines an encrypted, cloud-based storage solution with a secure and policy-controlled browser, allowing organizations of all types to implement complete control over their data.

"Businesses rely on the browser for everything from email and productivity apps to mission-critical DevOps configurations," says Ramesh Rajagopal, co-founder and President of Authentic8. "The dependence on local devices for file storage can lead to data breaches and ransomware infections. Authentic8 Cloud Storage gives IT administrators the ability to prevent data loss and malware infections by integrating a cloud-based file system directly into a secure and authenticated browser. Standalone browsers and standalone cloud storage solutions are effective, but it is the linkage between the two that makes the Authentic8 solution unique."

With the release of Cloud Storage, customers have the ability to provision encrypted storage space and control file-system access on a per-user level. Configuration options include:

  • Per-User Storage -- created for each individual user
  • Shared Storage -- shared within a group of users
  • Temporary Storage -- created at session start and purged at session end
  • Local Device Storage -- traditional access to the file system of the local device
  • File Encryption -- each storage partition is encrypted with a unique, customer-specific key
  • Retention Period -- automatic deletion of files after a specified time period

Cloud Storage is available now as an add-on to a Silo subscription, and administrators can deploy Cloud Storage to some or all users based on policy configurations in Silo. Contact Authentic8 for more information.
