FileCloud announces integration with Microsoft Teams

Integration allows Team users to share files across on-premises networks, storage devices, and FileCloud Online

FileCloud has announced the integration of its enterprise file sync, sharing, and data governance platform with Microsoft Teams.

The cloud-agnostic platform helps organizations share files and links conveniently and securely through a centralized workspace. FileCloud can be self-hosted on-premises, operated as an infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or accessed in the cloud.

“The developing hybrid work model has placed a spotlight on collaboration software, as companies look for ways to mix and match tools for employees scattered across multiple locations,” explained FileCloud.

“FileCloud’s intuitive connection with Microsoft Teams creates a smooth bridge between file storage and secure sharing,” added Madhan Kanagavel, FileCloud’s founder and CEO

“If we can eliminate context-switching by putting everything people need to get work done together in one place, we can make this hybrid model more efficient.”

The FileCloud extension in Teams is simple to install, and users can share information and files from FileCloud’s secure environment with coworkers, managers, and stakeholders in real time. Shared links are protected by FileCloud's comprehensive security features, including password protection, link expiration, and download limits.

FileCloud is also accessible via a tab in the Teams sidebar menu, allowing users to access metadata, comments, and file version history without switching between Teams and a browser.

The platform also integrates with Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to synchronize user accounts and groups. Built-in content classification engine allows customers to create custom search patterns and metadata sets for categorizing business documents.

Lastly, organizations can remotely wipe or block devices if they are lost or stolen, preventing unauthorized access.
