This article will introduce you to Triella’s Small Business Cloud File storage solution by Paper42, and Efolder, Anchor product. It will also explain the benefits of this solution for businesses over other similar products.
Today there are many online file storage products, some of the better known are Google Drive, Microsoft One Drive, Box, DropBox, iCloud, Mozy and the list goes on. I am here to inform you that they are not all created equally and that when it comes to your business data, it’s very important to know why our Paper42 Triella Cloud file storage solution is the right choice.
Being a Canadian MSP, Triella is focused mainly on Canadian Law Firms’ IT needs, and if you are a Canadian Business, even if you’re not a Law firm, you should be thinking about where your data is being stored and how it is being secured, if you are in the market for Cloud File storage solutions.
Most Cloud storage products are developed by American based companies, and those companies use data centers located in the USA. The reason this matters, if you are a Canadian business, is because if your data lives in the USA, it is also subject to the American laws, meaning your confidential client information which is protected by the Privacy Act in Canada, could by accessible to the American Government though the Patriot Act.
If this doesn’t bother you then no problem, but if it is important to your business to maintain client confidentiality, then it should be very important to you. Our Paper42 solution stores client data right here in Canada, out on the East Coast in a PCI Compliant Data Center.
Many providers do not have proprietary solutions and do not actually develop the software themselves. For example, Datto Drive uses the Open Source solution called OnCloud which is a Linux based solution, and as well priced for the large amount of space they provide, it is lacking in many features our Paper42 solution has built-in that are important to business.
Paper42 is based on the Anchor Cloud Sync Software, a Product of EFolder. Which allows partners to either host their clients data with Efolder own data centers or Install the solution in their own data centers which is what Paper42 has done.
