Docurated Announces Revolutionary Active Directory File Server Integration

Docurated, 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 users 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.”

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media).
