FileShadow Enhances Amazon WorkSpaces With New Solution

Provo— FileShadow, Inc. today announces an optimized cloud vault solution for Amazon WorkSpaces within Desktop as a Service (DaaS). With the new solution, individual users can now have all the benefits of an accelerated desktop deployment within Amazon WorkSpaces, with the additional benefit of FileShadow’s secure, reliable and searchable cloud vault. FileShadow enhances Amazon WorkSpaces’ compute and applications platform with the integration of a secure, cloud storage solution.

With FileShadow, files are collected and accessible anywhere, anytime through Amazon WorkSpaces. And, with edit in place features, all file versions are stored directly in the FileShadow vault, creating an added layer of security and convenience.

One of the issues that accompany virtual desktops for both individuals and businesses is how to secure long-term storage of users’ files. FileShadow is the secure archiving solution to this problem, and provides the added benefits of aggregation from multiple storage sources and advanced searching capabilities within Amazon WorkSpaces. Users simply install the FileShadow Desktop App on Amazon WorkSpaces with Windows 10. With Amazon WorkSpaces users get a fast, responsive Windows 10 desktop they can access anywhere, anytime, from any supported device.

“FileShadow delivers the benefits previously only available in enterprise deployments to individuals, SMBs and SMEs, giving them the ability to deploy virtual desktops with our integrated storage,” said Tyrone F. Pike, President and CEO of FileShadow. “With our cloud file assurance technology, we’ve given users quality, safe and secure storage services at a fraction of the price, without the need for IT support.”

The service is free of charge for up to 100 GB of data. Subscriptions are available for more storage ($15/month for 1 TB; $25/month for 2 TB; each additional terabyte is $10/month). Subscriptions for FileShadow for Virtual Desktops are available for $25/month for 2 TB, and each additional terabyte is $10/month.
