SpiderOak Launches First Completely Private Enterprise-Class Cloud Services

By Calvin Azuri, TMCnet Contributor

SpiderOak recently announced it has launched SpiderOak Blue, the market’s first private enterprise-class cloud storage system. Businesses and Organizations will now be able to completely own and manage all of their data, irrespective of where it is stored.

SpiderOak Blue has been specifically designed to offer quick, efficient deployment and administration. Businesses will be able to retain full data ownership in SpiderOak's robust, fault-tolerant, high-performance and fully scalable environment.

"Today's companies struggle with the consumerization of their IT infrastructures,” said Ethan Oberman, CEO of SpiderOak. “When employees use consumer-oriented tools for enterprise purposes, they run the risk of exposing company data to applications and cloud infrastructure that guarantees neither privacy nor confidentiality. SpiderOak Blue combines the ease of use that consumers demand with an advanced enterprise system that lets companies retain full ownership over their data in a 'zero-knowledge' privacy environment."

Key features of SpiderOak Blue include simple, Web-based management console for user provisioning, reporting, group permissions and space management; Detailed statistical and trouble-shooting reports on user activity; LDAP / Active Directory user account integration; RSA (News - Alert) SecurID integration; Private Cloud Capabilities; Installation of your own cloud behind the corporate firewall; Bulk create and manage user accounts; download and editing via CSV; and corporate-level managed controls that can be pushed down to all individual clients.

"There is no question that the cloud storage market is experiencing rapid growth as enterprises realize the inherent value of storing data in the cloud,” said Richard Stiennon, Chief Research Analyst at IT-Harvest. “The real 'X factor' for companies hosting data in the cloud is their fundamental approach to how they not only view security, but privacy. As the cloud storage market continues to mature, privacy will continue to play a critical role in terms of a multi-tiered security infrastructure. You can't lose what you can't see – this is the essence of the 'Zero Knowledge' approach."

SpiderOak Blue will also provide businesses with easy MSI (News - Alert) installers for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, the ability to follow policy-set permissions in the Windows Registry or as a text file in Linux or Mac and Simple Straightforward Pricing, letting businesses pay for space and divide it among users as and when required.
