cloudAshur Remote Management Console

The cloudAshur Remote Management Console provides the IT Administrator full visibility and control of all cloudAshur modules deployed within the organisation. Administrator capabilities include temporarily disabling or resetting cloudAshur encryption modules, restricting file types, viewing user log files, displaying user’s location, as well as restricting the time and locations users can access their cloudAshur.

The next generation remote managed
data storage solution

The iStorage cloudAshur is the next generation of remote managed data storage devices. Rather than store encrypted data on a local device, such as a flash drive or hard drive, the encrypted data is stored in your preferred cloud platform, allowing for real-time, ultra-secure collaboration and limitless data storage.

By using the cloudAshur Remote Management Console, organisations can protect confidential data stored in the cloud and take control of its security.

Full control

If an employee leaves the organisation, or if a cloudAshur module is lost or stolen, the Administrator can deny access to the cloudAshur platform by remotely resetting the device, which deletes all Admin/User credentials as well as the encrypted encryption key.

If a user attempts to access highly confidential information from an insecure location, geofencing restrictions can be implemented. At iStorage we believe that data rights are human rights. It’s time for you to take back control.


Temporarily disable or reset (remote kill) users cloudAshur modules

In the event of suspicious activity, a lost or stolen cloudAshur module or an employee leaving the organisation without returning their cloudAshur encryption module.

Geofencing and time fencing

Restrict the time and location of where and when the cloudAshur encryption module can be used by each individual user.

Restrict file types

Control what file types are being uploaded and shared in the cloud (EXE, PNG, PDF, etc…)

Encrypt file names

With this feature enabled, not only is the data encrypted in the cloud, but all file names are also encrypted.

View users log files

full visibility of each user’s activity in the cloud, such as what files they are uploading, downloading, modifying or deleting. Log files can be exported.

Display users location

The IT Administrator can view the location of all cloudAshur modules via an on-screen map.
