CTERA Portal Enhancements Simplify Cloud Migration
The secure file services company also announced CTERA Portal, which supports user authentication through the platform's new SAML 2.0 capabilities.Secure file services specialist CTERA Networks updated its cloud data management capabilities for its Portal to help businesses implement file service and data protection strategies. The enhancements to the company’s platform are designed to help IT organizations migrate data across data centers and cloud infrastructure, optimize storage infrastructure costs through intelligent file management and simplify user access to enterprise data through new identity management integrations. "Our customers are increasingly looking to reduce the amount of friction related to storing their data in private and on-premises and virtual private cloud environments," CTERA's senior vice president of marketing Jeff Denworth told eWEEK. "For a variety of reasons—ranging from cost considerations, to data privacy, to business continuity strategy and even to a broader application agenda—customers are continually evaluating options regarding their cloud strategy and optimizing their deployment models based upon an evolving set of priorities." The platform is powered by CTERA’s cloud service delivery middleware. IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) organizations leverage this middleware to create, deliver and manage cloud storage-based services such as enterprise file sync and share (EFSS), in-cloud data protection, endpoint and remote server backup and office storage modernization.
Any organization moving data within or across clouds needs assurance that their files are protected and secure, Denworth noted.
