Why did NH Investment & Securities adopt FilingBox instead of using file servers?

NH Investment & Securities, who are the No 1. stock investment company in Korea, decided to stop using vulnerable SAMBA file servers, in favour of using FilingBox Enterprise instead.

They fully understood the vulnerability of their existing file servers. Cyber attacks have focused on holes in open source or OS and SAMBA file servers are one of the best targets for hackers.

NH Investment & Securities needed a new file server which is not vulnerable to cyber attacks and provides the same user experience of a network drive on Windows OS. To calculate the investment index and financial data, they have to use XLS files on the network drives, which require a shared network drive.

After receiving the warning from the external cyber security audit organization, NH Investment & Securities adopted FilingBox Enterprise as a replacement file server technology. FilingBox does not have SAMBA vulnerability and makes it easy for users to share and manage XLS files within FilingBox.

They needed to set an access policy for each folder without requesting an IT manager. Within FilingBox, they can share a folder with other team members and other teams.

Besides the benefit of user-oriented access management, IT managers also can reduce management time for over 20 file servers in the organization. After adopting FilingBox, IT managers only need to manage one FilingBox for 4,000 users. FilingBox provides productivity for users and IT managers.

Ransomware Protection

To protect your data securely, FilingBox stores your data on separate network storage, not on a local disk in your PC or server. It provides a network drive to PCs and servers like a conventional file server. However, it has the create-read-only security mode which can protect data from ransomware running on your PC and server.
