Storage Made Easy secures £3 million in growth funding to capitalise on compliance and governance of digital assets
UK Based Storage Made Easy has secured £3 million in growth funding to help police and secure files across the corporate data estate with their multi-cloud File Fabric solution.
Storage Made Easy provide a File Fabric product solution that provides data security and policy based compliance features for enterprise class companies.
Between on-premises, hybrid, and cloud environments the policing of data has become an almost impossible task for most companies. In addition to security issues, such as Ransomware attacks, new compliance regimes, such as GDPR, mean that for companies to ensure they are protected they have to implement their own polices and security across their entire data estate, including that which is provided by cloud service providers.
The Storage Made Easy File Fabric solves this problem and works with a company's existing file stores to provide not only policy based security but also, for example, insight into which files contain personal data, and also a 'single pane of glass' view into corporate data stores, unifying on-site and on-cloud file assets.
The product is also used extensively with Object Storage products, which form a key part of many companies future digital transformation and data growth plans. As most Object Storage provides only REST based API access the File Fabric provides a means to not only police the data that resides in Object Storage, but also easily allow end users to interact with it, directly from their desktops as they do with their existing filers.
The Storage Made Easy File Fabric is used by some of the worlds biggest companies and the company's customer portfolio includes one of the largest global social media companies, a global North American communications and technology leader, a large North American network broadcaster and additionally the product is also utilised in UK government, via the G-Cloud initiative, as well as by other international government bodies.
Storage Made Easy recently announced a growth reseller partnership with one of the leading S3 compatible Object Storage vendors, Cloudian, and additionally partners with other major vendors in the Object Storage space including RedHat, and Canonical.
"We are excited to receive this infusion of capital from our new and existing investors," said CEO and co-founder Jim Liddle. "They recognize the market opportunity and believe that Storage Made Easy is strategically positioned to build on the existing growth and success that has already been achieved. This new funding will primarily be spent on sales related resources as we push to grow our footprint in the enterprise. This investment validates our unique approach to making corporate data more productive and secure wherever it may be installed, on-cloud or on-premises."
