FileCloud Enterprise Antivirus Integration

With Top Security Standards, FileCloud now integrates with Enterprise antivirus solutions like Symantec Protection Engine, McAfee or any other anti-virus that supports ICAP protocol. This, thereby, enables secure collaboration across any organization and protects their data regardless of the FileCloud location.

Furthermore, these security features address the increasing threats organizations are facing, by integrating with anti-virus solutions to defend, detect, and recover securely and stay within compliance requirements.  

Hence, with this feature, you as an administrator or a corporate IT Security manager can rest assured, knowing you have protection from Ransomware using a content heuristic engine.

FileCloud DocIQ- The Ultimate Add-in for Collaboration  

In today’s workplace, it is a common practice for multiple stakeholders to collaborate with the same document. However, this approach typically requires employees, customers, and partners —  to switch between apps, send emails, and keep track of messages. So, when using FileCloud’s DocIQ assistant, organization and display of relevant information come about without ever leaving the document. Therefore, DocIQ empowers you to accomplish tasks faster. 

Available as an add-in to Microsoft Office, DocIQ brings together relevant information from various streams into an intuitive and easy-to-read format that allows collaboration across the globe and multiple devices. Features include:

  • Avoid conflicts by using file lock when many users want to edit the same document
  • Prevent other users from downloading files currently being edited
  • Display details of persons you have shared files with and manage sharing access
  • Read and maintain notes and comments alongside the document

If the ‘Lock’ option is OFF, then the ‘Prevent Download’ option cannot be switched ON (2) and only if the ‘Lock’ option is ON, can the Prevent Download’ option be ON (3). Whereas, if the ‘Prevent Download’ option is OFF, the ‘Lock’ Option can still be switched ON (1).
