Transporter allows you to deliver your own cloud service for file syncing and sharing that is identical to those from popular services like Dropbox and Box, on easy to deploy hardware appliances that you own and control.
The Cloud Experience Employees Want
For modern users, traditional file servers and NAS systems become a hindrance to sharing and collaboration. Users must navigate a shared drive hierarchy to find files within unintuitive structures created by somebody else and are required to use slow and unreliable VPNs for remote access. Transporter removes these limitations by enabling employees to work in ways that are identical to those they enjoy from popular cloud services but safely within the work environment. Users are able to personally organize shared files and folders on their computers in a way that makes sense to them, access those files from mobile devices, and sync data from home or on the road.
Complete Data Privacy
While public cloud providers may employ encryption technology, it’s meaningless if they have access to the private encryption keys. Box, Dropbox and many other public cloud storage companies hold the private encryption keys for your data meaning they can access it at any time. Transporter generates and stores your private encryption keys directly on your appliances. This means the data is directly under your control and nobody else, including Connected Data, has any access to your files. Transporter is the first business class file sync and share solution to meet all of the privacy requirements necessary for sensitive medical, financial and legal data.
Total Control of Data Location and Redundancy
Public cloud file sync and share providers store data in unknown locations with uncertain data protection policies. Not only does this increase the risk of unauthorized access or information loss, it potentially violates industry and government regulations. Transporter only stores data on devices authorized by you at locations you select, eliminating privacy concerns and automatically syncing data exactly where required for high speed local access and multi-site redundancy.
Significantly Faster than Public Cloud
Public cloud services route all file requests to and from the cloud, even if the employees sharing those files are in the same building, on the same local network. Not only does this result in poor utilization of the business Internet connection, it also prevents you from taking advantage of your investment in an on premise high-speed network. Transporter appliances allow you to locate data exactly where it’s needed. Transporters intelligently distinguish between local and remote operations to ensure employees always benefit from the fastest possible performance.
Automated Replication and Synchronization
Replication technologies from traditional storage companies are often difficult and expensive to deploy. Even for businesses with the required expertise and budget, these replication solutions are typically active-passive and limited to just a few systems. All Transporter appliances include automated, fully active replication and can sync in real-time between an unlimited number of Transporters, no matter where they are located. This allows you to distribute data to the locations and offices as required. Whether you have two offices or hundreds of locations, Transporter can automatically move the data to where it’s needed.
Compatible with Your Backup Infrastructure
A major challenge for businesses using public cloud for file sync and share services is that there is no easy way to back up the data for disaster recovery purposes. These services assume their internal backup capabilities are “good enough” when in reality there have been many documented cases of permanent data loss. We recognize that every business has it’s own requirements for backup and data protection. In addition to offering automated offsite replication, Transporter appliances are also compatible with your existing backup infrastructure. You finally have a cloud service that allows you to choose how data is protected.
