FileFlex from Qnext is getting recognition as a key solution to help fight the rising incidence of cybercrime as the remote workforce gains momentum
Article published by The Northern Policy Institute recommends FileFlex Enterprise as a zero-trust solution to protect remote access and shared data
Toronto, June 9, 2020. In today’s new normal, corporate and government employees could be facing billions of dollars in additional costs from ransomware, phishing or malware attacks. Cyber attackers are getting smarter according to an article featuring FileFlex Enterprise published by The Northern Policy Institute on May 19, 2020. The report also states that as authorities and resources are focused on fighting the COVID-19 pandemic the elusive cybercriminal sees now as the perfect time to target vulnerable internet users who may be working from home for the first time.
“As the world fights a crisis of unprecedented proportions amplified by the misinformation campaigns of rogue nations to protect citizens and states, tools such as end-to-end encryption and zero-trust architecture need to be deployed in today’s mainstream enterprise hybrid IT infrastructure.” said author David Bruno, founder of Secure Swiss Data (now SafeSwiss®), Co-CEO of this global cybersecurity firm.
The report goes on to say, “the “never trust, always verify” model that underlies the FileFlex Enterprise zero-trust platform allows users to access their data from anywhere and any device without compromising on security. To date many remote workers feel somewhat safe in the knowledge that they are using a virtual private network (VPN), however this trend is not going to be maintained as, according to Gartner, “by 2023, 60 percent of enterprises will phase out most of their remote access VPNs in favour of zero trust network access” (Weinberg 2019).
‘Combining end-to-end encryption, along with our patented zero-trust platform allows users to securely access data and share their files from anywhere, using any device, in the most secure remote data access and collaboration application in the industry today.” said Anthony DeCristofaro CEO of Qnext, the developer of the FileFlex Enterprise solution.
Just think of accessing and sharing data like interacting with a bank teller. If you withdraw money from the bank, you aren’t allowed to go into the vault and get it yourself. You have to go to the bank teller. The teller verifies that who you are, makes sure you have the funds and that you have permission to take out that amount. The teller then gives you your money. FileFlex Enterprise does this with data as users access shared data remotely with no access to the data infrastructure – the data vault. The FileFlex Enterprise system trusts no-one and verifies everything – just like the teller.
“As the world fights a crisis of unprecedented proportions, amplified by the misinformation campaigns of rogue nations, Canadian authorities and industry leaders must work together to safeguard the nation’s health, data and future. We believe a solution encompassing E2EE and FileFlex Enterprise, driven by science and technology is the need of the hour.” said Bruno.
