The WFH phenomenon demanding accelerated, secure and controlled collaboration

Hybrid, scaleable, protected file sharing - Built for MSPs

Andrew Johnson, Managing Director

Presenting in person at the Adelaide meeting


Apps like Dropbox and OneDrive are the perfect fit for individuals, freelancers or small agencies looking to store and/or quickly share files and folders with friends or clients. But these tools are far from able to meet small to medium-sized businesses’ (SMBs) requirements.

Any company - whether five or 500 employees - needs to ensure its most sensitive and confidential files remain fully under the company’s control. Vendor numbers in this enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) solutions space seem to be exploding. ReportLinker’s May 2020 Report tells us that the global enterprise file synchronisation and sharing market was valued at USD4.23B in 2019 and is expected to reach USD16.99B by 2025.

So what’s driving the demand for solutions offering safer enterprise file access, synchronisation and sharing? COVID-19 globally has increased the demand due to the viability of employees working from home. The adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy continues to be a growing trend of our mobile workforce and digital workplace. Underpinning all of this has been the switch from on-premise models to cloud-based integrated solutions.

This presentation talks us through Manage Protect’s business cloud storage solution providing enterprise-ready security and collaboration enablement – Workplace. We’ll dissect who the solution is for, why in today’s world, security is more important than ever before, and cover some of Workplace’s compelling features such as hybrid operation (on-prem fileserver & WFH integration), automated ransomware detection and reversal, business grade permissions and user management, tight integration with Google Docs and Microsoft 365 and optimised “Smart Sync” technology providing easy access to all files without using up disk space.

Simply put, Workplace adapts to a businesses’ needs, making adding or removing people from a virtually shared environment a swift experience. It genuinely offers integrated Mobile Document Management (MDM) and device security where Admins can add or remove emplo
yees from accessing the Workplace cloud, making sure data remains under company control no matter what.

Andrew will bring a vicious ransomware virus with him from NSW, which he will release on his unsuspecting Windows 10 desktop and we can all see how Datto workplace handles this situation... 

All things working as promised, we will experience the destruction and remediation both from an end customer and partner perspective live!
