Completely automatic, it's that simple…


    Challenge
    Trends such as mobile workforce and bring your own device (BYOD) increase
    pressure on IT departments to manage and secure devices and data.

    The need to collaborate and share data with third parties,
    customers and partners add to this chaos and complexity.
    Users increasingly turn to unsecure, consumer-style cloud services
    for access to their data and files across all of their devices,
    as well as the ability to share those files with others.
    Consumer-focused solutions that do not provide adequate security, management and enterprise oversight.

    Solution - The OBC FileCloud
    To help IT regain control over employee file sharing, The Online Backup Company (OBC) offers OBC FileCloud
    - an enterprise-class, secure and robust service that meets the mobility and collaboration needs of all users.

    OBC FileCloud - OBC Datacenter  - Picture
    All data is stored in Sweden or Norway and meets all requirements of
    the The Swedish Data Inspection Board and the Swedish Personal Data Act (PUL).

    OBC uses multiple data centres to its application and data, providing essential redundancy and security.
    All data centres employ physical security, strict access policies and secure vaults and cages against fire,
    flood and technological disruption.


    Encrypted Local Drive (The Vault)
    OBC FileCloud - Encrypted Local Drive - Picture
    OBC FileCloud creates a secure area on your local hard drive, the Vault.
    Vaults act just like a hard drive on the user’s computers,
    storing important documents in one place with remote access.
    Users simply drag and drop their files into the virtual local drive,
    and data is immediately encrypted, backed up and available for sharing with others.

    The information is encrypted using AES 256 and compressed before being sent over to OBC Datacenters.
    The information can only be decrypted with customer's own encryption key (the key is kept by the customer).


    Remote Wipe
    OBC FileCloud - Remote Wipe - Picture
    Keeping your local data encrypted and password protected,
    is only the first line of defense against data theft.
    In the event your computer is stolen, OBC FileCloud uses a
    unique serial number assigned to each device to give the ability
    to remove all files and folders on your OBC FileCloud Vault
    as soon as someone try to access them.
    The tracking allows to locate the missing device on Google Maps.


    Continuos File Backup
    OBC FileCloud - Continuous File Backup - Picture
    Hard drives crash and computers get stolen, but that doesn’t mean data will be lost.
    Every time a file is changed or a new file is saved on a Vault,
    it gets backed up and stored in OBC’s data center.
    OBC FileCloud service works quietly in the background without interfering with your productivity.
    All files are backed up to redundant servers and stored in OBC Data Centers.


    Restore a Previous Version
    OBC FileCloud - Synchronise and Restore a Previous Version - Picture
    Security is also available when files are accidently deleted.
    So even if you saved a bad change, or if the file has been damaged or deleted,
    you can restore the file to an older version with only a few clicks.
    OBC FileCloud retains 14 daily backups of all you data.
    This allows you to retrieve the past version with a simple
    restore function from the OBC FileCloud portal.



File Sharing and Collaboration
    Folder and File Sharing
    OBC FileCloud - Folder and File Sharing  - Picture
    OBC FileCloud makes it simple to share files internally as well as with external partners, clients and vendors.
    Whether you are sharing one file, or an entire folder with hundreds of files, a few clicks is all it takes.
    When recipients click the link, they will be able to download the file or the entire folder.
    You can send password protected or public links from your desktop, from the web,
    or from your smartphone or tablet.


    Collaborate with Shared Folders
    OBC FileCloud - Shared Folders with FolderLink - Picture
    OBC FileCloud allows you to provide access to an entire folder of files on your secure server.
    Instead of initiating a file download, FolderLink directs the recipients to a web page
    where they can view and upload files, if given authority to do so.
    FolderLink is simple to use and can replace more complicated services like FTP.


    Apply Folder Permissions
    OBC FileCloud - Apply Folder Permissions  - Picture
    OBC FileCloud gives you flexibility and security when sharing information.
    You can give permission for others to edit files so that your team can collaborate on a project.
    Or you can share a folder as "read-only" so recipients can view the files, but cannot make changes.
    Your data is always up-to-date and available to team members, whether they are online or offline.
    The service automatically synchronizes and updates files to the OBC’s data center and
    across the local drives of your team members.


    File Notifications / Access Controll
    OBC FileCloud - Access Control - Picture
    Keep track of when others add, delete, or modify files within your shared Vault.
    File Notifications allow you to set e-mail alerts on specific files or entire Vaults so you
    can keep track of any changes to your files and easily discover new and updated content.
