Cloud Solution Delivers Secure Access, Search and Security for SharePoint Applications

Sunday, March 1, 2015.

SearchYourCloud (SYC) has announced that PDF Solutions has selected its patented federated search to enable secure access, searching and sharing on the SharePoint platform.

The three-year deal is reported to be worth $310,000 in products and services, demonstrating SYC's commitment to answering customers' search and security requirements and easing implementation.

PDF will be deploying the SYC SharePoint Online module for SYC's Cloud Platform, Secure Cloud Index, Outlook Enhancement, including SYC's Dropbox Security & Search Plugin, Box Security & Search Plugin, Google Drive Security & Search Plugin, and OS X Desktop Client. For mobile users, PDF will enable access via iPhone and iPad as well as Android phones and tablets.

"When PDF made the decision to transition to the cloud to reduce the cost of internal servers, the legal department would only allow the migration if it would be totally secure," said Gary Uyeda, IT Director at PDF Solutions. "SYC has the only platform that offers transparent, secure, file transfer and storage and the ability to use a single query from Outlook to do a deep, simultaneous search of email, desktop, corporate and cloud storage."

SharePoint is a web-based application platform for Intranet portals, document and file management, collaboration, and social networking. The SharePoint platform also features many process and workflow capabilities. SYC integrates easily with SharePoint and enables searching across all information, regardless of cloud location, with a single query.

SharePoint users can take advantage of SYC's patented search, which returns more select and specific results, in current workflows, from the desktop to the cloud with a single search query. Data and files are transported and stored to and from the cloud already encrypted to AES 256 standards and can be securely accessed from any authorised mobile or static device, with dynamically assembled keys.

Every time a user accesses a document, SearchYourCloud simultaneously encrypts it at the end device, and updates the in-memory search index making it the fastest and most secure search engine available. Administrators have complete control of all access, usage, audit and deletion of files in the system. For additional security, the index can stand behind the end user's firewall. The easy integration means that there is no disruption in the SharePoint functionality.

"We are excited to work with PDF and to launch the next version of SearchYourCloud, which will receive more widespread deployment in the coming months offering the same capabilities to enterprise, integrator and reseller customers," stated Simon Bain, CEO of SearchYourCloud. "The company relies on SharePoint for its business-critical applications, and needed a secure search. SearchYourCloud's revolutionary search access model met the need for efficient, secure access to critical data in the cloud."
