FileWorks Online™ joins Twitter and other Internet-based services running on Amazon Web Services.
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — In a further commitment to security and availability, FileWorks™ is now utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS) for its secure online file cabinet FileWorks Online™.
Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) and S3 (Simple Storage Service) deliver a highly scalable cloud computing platform with high availability and dependability. The Amazon EC2 Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95 percent availability. AWS is used by such companies as Twitter, eBuddy and Animoto.
AWS is working with a public accounting firm to ensure continued Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and attain certifications such as SAS70 Type II. The AWS platform also permits the deployment of solutions meeting industry-specific certification requirements, such as HIPAA.
The implementation of AWS is seamless to FileWorks Online™ clients who continue to benefit from the security features within FileWorks Online™. The Intel® Certified seal indicates that FileWorks Online™ is enabled for Intel® technologies, free of all known significant security vulnerabilities, and monitored for security issues.
Extended site validation through Network Solutions' SiteSafe ensures 128-bit encryption during transmission and provides a $1 million relying party guarantee for financial transactions on the site.
Within FileWorks Online™ storage, all files are still encrypted while stored—a security feature rarely offered by other online document storage services.
