It isn't all that often that the IT world in the United States gets a bright new import from Italy. This happens with cars and food, perhaps, but not with IT products.
Milan-based Boole Server, a provider of enterprise file sharing and data protection in Europe, has announced the opening of its two North American offices in San Francisco and Boston, as an expansion into the U.S. market. Boole Server's on-premise-only data server provides serious security: full military-grade encryption to secure data beyond perimeter and device-centric controls and keep it from falling into unauthorized hands.
There are now as many as 729 different cloud applications in use at the average company, executive consultant Laura Yecies told eWEEK, and many apps include confidential corporate data. Leading international companies, including Barilla, UnipolSai, Giorgio Armani, Tod's and Versace, are taking back control of their data by using Boole Server for collaboration, sharing and the highest level of data security in the industry (encryption keys at 2,048 bits).
Boole Server is location-agnostic and secures data, files and messages wherever they reside—from messaging apps, flash drives, folders, SharePoint and mobile apps to online document editors.
"We envision an end to corporate data breaches through smarter file sharing and data-centric security," said Valerio Pastore, founder and CTO of Boole Server. "Our pioneering use of the strongest available encryption is the remedy that the market needs to secure confidential information from prying eyes—whoever they may be."
Boole Server encrypts everything, but data access remains flexible with granular access rights. Data is always encrypted, at rest, in transport and even when in use by the user, Yecies said. Sharing is possible with both internal and external users, yet data control remains in the hands of the file owners. Full audit trails and dynamic access policies work anywhere and everywhere, Yecies said.
