Our Vision: Your Files, Your Cloud
At CTERA we want to provide enterprises with the best experience in managing how files are stored, accessed, shared and governed in a world where data flows between clouds, and users work and collaborate on the go. Data silos and storage tied to a specific location or hardware are in the past.
Born In The Cloud, Founded Upon Security Expertise
CTERA was founded by IT security veterans, who in 2008 identified the transformation that cloud computing would bring to enterprise IT, and the challenges this transformation presented for infrastructure management, data governance, privacy and security. In a world where data follows the user as it flows between clouds, offices and endpoints – the focus was on building a private cloud storage as a service platform that could centrally manage how security and governance follows the data wherever it flows.
At CTERA, we quickly realized that point solutions are not the answer to the growing fluidity of file use across the enterprise. Point solutions generate data silos, do not provide a holistic view of data governance and data security, and create IT management overhead and costs that are entirely avoidable.
The only way to usher in a new era of file services is to deploy a comprehensive, flexible, ‘born in the cloud’ platform – the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform. Everything you need to deploy and manage file services such as sync & share,
backup, and remote branch storage is built into in the CTERA platform.
Enterprises deploy the CTERA platform from private and public cloud (VPC) infrastructures, with no compromise on security and performance. As a cloud native solution, CTERA offers secure and efficient protocols, RESTful APIs and a multi-tenant data security and service management model to enable the security and operational efficiencies demanded by today’s IT-as-a-Service organizations.
