SAN JOSE, Calif, Sept. 27, 2023 -- Panzura LLC, a hybrid multi-cloud file management company, today announced the general availability of Panzura Edge gateway. This scalable, enterprise-class file-sharing solution allows organizations to create private workspaces and securely share and update files stored within Panzura's Cloud File System (CloudFS).
Employees and trusted partners, inside and outside the organization, will have seamless file access anytime, anywhere, and on any device. They will also be able to collaborate on files within the protected, ransomware resilient CloudFS environment, without the need to export or make copies.
CloudFS delivers high-performance and low-latency file access across geographically dispersed locations, enabling organizations to consolidate their unstructured data into a "single source of truth" that can be accessed and shared from anywhere in the world.
Panzura Edge, which can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud, is designed to meet the file access and collaboration needs for C-Suite executives, IT managers, and business users in an ever-evolving work environment. It provides a secure way for using CloudFS-stored files for remote work and third-party collaboration, minimizing the risk of data leakage and exfiltration. IT and data managers gain granular control over all data, preventing loss or corruption, while business users gain intuitive controls for a seamless "anytime, anywhere" working experience.
This innovative solution addresses important enterprise concerns such as data security, tech sprawl, cost savings and revenue retention. It empowers CloudFS customers to easily access and protect their proprietary data, while increasing its accessibility both inside and outside the workplace.
"Panzura Edge is a game-changer for organizations that need to share data with authorized partners without sacrificing data control or security," said Don Foster, Global Head of Sales Engineering at Panzura. "When users need to collaborate using their mobile devices or across multiple locations around the world, Panzura Edge gives them an efficient and secure gateway for sharing their CloudFS-held files."

- Remote Access to CloudFS Data: Panzura Edge provides secure access to enterprise data anytime, anywhere, using any device and without a VPN.
- Advanced File Sharing & Collaboration: The platform allows secure sharing of files and folders both inside and outside of the organization, with full control retained over the data.
- Robust Security: Panzura Edge offers secure password-protected file sharing, two-factor authentication, and up-to-date encryption methods to ensure data security.

"Panzura Edge helps our team ensure productivity across all offices and remote locations," said one C-Suite executive user. "Our risk of data exfiltration has gone down dramatically."
