HAWTHORNE, NJ, JUNE 4, 2014 – STEALTHbits Technologies Inc., leading supplier of Data Access Governance solutions for Unstructured Data and Microsoft Infrastructure Management solutions, announced today the launch of a new File Sync and Share (FSS) Application discovery solution, designed to identify where any of the premier consumer cloud storage applications are running across an organization’s desktop and server infrastructure. The solution is being offered as a free trial and aims to help IT departments proactively identify where FSS applications exists as a first step in mitigating the risks they face with concern to File Sync & Share usage.
“Despite being extremely useful in a consumer’s personal life, the adoption of FSS applications for business-use means that sensitive business information is being left exposed.” said Jonathan Sander, Strategy & Research Officer for STEALTHbits. “In the event that an employee’s cloud storage application account is compromised, all of its contents are instantly made accessible with no possible recourse.”
“The first step in addressing this security concern is to identify where these cloud storage applications are running within your environment. The File Sync and Share Assessment in StealthAUDIT does exactly this.” said Alex Berger, Product Manager of Active Directory and Systems Governance Solutions for STEALTHbits. “Certainly there are multiple vectors involved when talking about File Sync and Share security as a whole, but rather than playing a game of ‘Where’s Waldo?’ with the FSS apps being used within an organization, we wanted to make it easy for everyone to pinpoint where their attention is needed.”
The StealthAUDIT File Sync and Share Applicaiton Discovery Assessment will identify instances of the following cloud storage applications in use, in addition to the host and user running them:
- Google Drive<
- OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive)
The assessment is free and available for immediate download from STEALTHbits’ website – http://stealthbits.com/solutions/file-sync-share-discovery-solution-download
