Luis A. Alonso, S&M Cloud co-founder said: "We provide a storage as a service solution to our customers partnering with IBM SoftLayer and Storage Made Easy, enabling secure access to SoftLayer from any desktop, web and mobile devices. Grupo Urbegi is one of our most important clients using the SME Enterprise File Fabric."
Cristina Solar, Finance Director from Grupo Urbegi, said: "We are operating in Spain, Colombia and Mexico in our 10 offices. After evaluating other providers, we decided to implement the Storage Made Easy solution as it was the best product we tested so far. We needed to set governance and audit controls, and also had a requirement for a Hybrid Solution to access data in a secure way on different public clouds. We are a company with an emphasis on adhering to the law with regards to protection of personal data, particularly as we work with vulnerable people. It is therefore imperative for us to know who, where and when data is being accessed."
In addition to SoftLayer, the Storage Made Easy Solution currently supports more than 50 private and public data clouds and services such as OpenStack, Amazon S3, Cloudian, SwiftStack and others.
Storage Made Easy CEO Jim Liddle said, "Security and privacy are without a doubt the biggest concerns when it comes to adoption of the cloud. A company often feels that it loses direct control over many aspects of security with regards to data stored on Cloud. The Storage Made Easy solution provides a way of handing control back to companies so that they can easily policy set, control and monitor data, in addition full audit logging reports that can be handed off to a compliance officer if required."

About Storage Made Easy
The Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Fabric enables IT to regain control of "cloud sprawl", unifying private and public file sharing into a single, converged storage infrastructure that can easily be managed and be used to set governance and audit controls.
The SME solution offers a "blanket" that enterprises can privately apply to wrap around all their data: on premises, within a public cloud, or on a third party software vendors' cloud (SharePoint or SalesForce for example). Customers use SME for security, encryption, audit, and control as well as to provide a data unification platform.
