FTP is not a four letter word

ftp_illustration5In this drag-and-drop world of content sharing, saying that companies should remember the joys of FTP is a bit like your dad saying you “really need” to check out Steely Dan. You’ve heard of it, but it sounds complicated and out of date.

But nothing could be further from the truth for organizations with massive amounts of data and complex folder structures that need to be stored and shared in the cloud. In certain environments, FTP can be better than HTTP for sending a large or complex structure of files. Thankfully, Onehub can help you marry the power of FTP uploads with the convenience of browser-based collaboration.

Here’s why FTP can be a good thing when uploading files in bulk: Read More…

custom_domain

Everything is better when you make it your own: bespoke suits, your lunch order, even cloud-based collaboration is way better when you tailor it to your needs. That’s why Onehub offers custom domain mapping.

Custom domain mapping puts your Onehub Workspaces on a domain that you control. So instead of your users visiting Onehub.com to access your content, they do everything through your site.

Massive preview options = more productivity and more security

file_preview

Being able to preview many different file types directly from within Onehub is a great way to boost your productivity and keep your data more secure.

Get more done
Having to switch between multiple apps to preview a document is a giant roadblock to productivity. That’s why Onehub supports previews of 35 different file types — so you don’t have to switch between (or even install) different apps.

Need to review a Word document, a video or even a CAD file? Do it all (and way way more) from within your Onehub Workspace. Just launch it from Onehub and start looking at it right away. Even better, you can do all your reviewing on your mobile device or tablet in Onehub, so you can get even more done when you’re on the go.

Better data protection
Onehub’s expanded preview capabilities also helps keep your data more secure. With our granular permission settings, the files you share can all be viewed within Onehub and can’t be altered. Your team can see your documents — but they can’t change them.

Additionally, by keeping tight permission controls and everything viewable within Onehub, you limit how your files can be shared, so you know who has access to your work.

Here’s a list of all the file types you can preview while in Onehub. Read More…

Hackers target law firms

network_securityIt’s not just big companies that face serious threats from hack attacks — the law firms that represent them are banding together to share information as they become the latest targets for hackers and online criminals. According to a report by The New York Times:

Law enforcement agencies have long been concerned about the vulnerability of United States law firms to online attacks because they are seen by hackers and nations bent on corporate espionage as a rich repository of company secrets, business strategies and intellectual property.

We’ve written before about how Onehub makes security a top priority for our online file sharing and collaboration. With bank-level encryption, robust permission controls and audit trails, Onehub goes to extreme lengths to protect your data.

A number of law firms have selected Onehub not only because of the enhanced content protection, but also because we offer firms enhanced services like client portals and virtual data rooms.

If you’re a law firm looking for a better way to protect your clients and your client’s data, contact us to see what Onehub can do for you, or try Onehub for free.
