the next-generation document management platform, today announced the
introduction of its File Server Transformation Solution. With complete
Active Directory/LDAP Integration, Docurated instantly transforms legacy
file servers and cloud-storage solutions such as Box, Dropbox,
SharePoint, and Google Drive into secure, searchable, and actionable
knowledge and file sharing platforms. This means that Docurated not only
quickly provisions all of your users, but mirrors all of your Active
Directory permissions dictating what files they can access, a task that
could take months for an IT department to replicate.
Docurated has raised $3.75M in Series A funding led by Rogers Venture
Partners and in 2013 experienced 2,000% year-over-year growth, adding
brand name customers including Clorox, Digitas, Netflix, and Havas.
"File servers and shares remain some of the most prevalent content
repositories across all enterprises. IT departments seeking to unlock
the value of their trapped content by moving to a cloud-based file
sharing solution have to manually recreate their entire file and folder
structure, permissions settings, and workflow, over many months
resulting in massive management overhead and costs. That is, until now,"
explained Docurated CEO Alex Gorbansky. "With Docurated's File Server
Transformation Solution, IT departments can give uses the benefits of a
rich cloud-based knowledge solution while preserving existing
permissions. The whole process requires zero infrastructure change,
thereby dramatically reducing cost and drawing more economic value out
of existing file shares."
Docurated is the only solution that goes beyond basic user level
provisioning to provide granular file-level access control and
permission mirroring in the market. The Docurated File Server
Transformation Solution consists of a lightweight agent that indexes
content and reads Active Directory and LDAP permissions. The Active
Directory integration is set up through a simple, guided process and
leverages existing identity management systems, mirroring file system
access settings with absolutely no extra IT department effort. Docurated
automatically inherits all permissions based on existing Active
Directory/LDAP settings. Systems are kept in sync, with changes
automatically reflected in Docurated, including auto-provisioning and
deprovisioning of users and groups.
"We took an old file server with years of content and quickly
transformed it into a robust knowledge center," said Alexandra Wood,
Global Digital Product Director at Havas Worldwide. "We were able to
keep our existing infrastructure and security settings and gave our team
- which spans 75 countries - a powerful way to find and share their most
valuable information. This is truly a game-changing solution for any
team considering a move to cloud file sharing."
Docurated's cloud-based solutions offer the fastest and simplest way to
find and use content. With Docurated's smart approach to document
management, customers drive more economic value out of existing storage
investments. It's the end of files, folders and document tagging.
Docurated enables users to instantly find and use the exact and most
relevant page, paragraph, slide and chart without opening a single
folder or file, all while keeping
IT departments happy. Content in shared drives and systems like
SharePoint, Box and Dropbox instantly becomes visually searchable and
actionable. For more information on how Docurated helps
