With version 5.0, CTERA cloud storage gateways now feature integrated support for the company’s Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS), extending the cloud and enabling collaboration and cloud-based file access to user and project data at local area network (LAN) speeds. The latest release also offers integration with anti-malware software, enterprise mobility management tools (EMM) and data loss prevention (DLP) software to provide security and governance across the data services continuum. The platform also supports virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and Windows phone users, adding to pre-existing support for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, iOS and Android systems.
"The cloud has become a central point of aggregation for data that extends from the core of the enterprise to the farthest edges of the network," Jeff Denworth, CTERA’s senior vice president of marketing, told eWEEK. "And now, because IT operations can be delivered as a service, organizations can centralize data through the delivery of scalable services and process data using inexpensive cloud computing."
