Press release from the issuing company

Premier Cloud Services Enable Secure, Enterprise-Wide Sharing

Ramsey, N.J. – Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. (Konica Minolta) today announces the launch of FileAssist, a fully-managed file storage and collaborative solution developed exclusively for Konica Minolta and hosted by All Covered – Konica Minolta’s Managed IT services provider. The company’s first cloud solution, FileAssist is ideal for businesses of all sizes looking to collaborate and share information in a secure environment, while also improving workflow efficiency.

FileAssist helps reduce risk, cost and complexity by uniting an organization on a single and easy-to-use cloud-based document management application. Completing Konica Minolta’s Enterprise Content Management Services Portfolio, FileAssist delivers a fully scalable solution that processes the handling of documents in such a way that information can be created, shared, organized and stored efficiently in a secure cloud. FileAssist provides the flexibility for business owners to not only scale with their needs but also have seamless access between mobile devices, the multi-functional printer and the web client from anywhere and at any time.

Features of the new solution include:

  • Online File Sharing & Collaboration – FileAssist allows secure document sharing without the need to look for resources outside company walls.  It also eliminates the need to transfer large files, reduces the risk of compromising information security via email sharing, and helps simplify document collaboration via version control mechanisms.
  • Security & Compliance – FileAssist provides the necessary tools to meet rigorous privacy, security and legal requirements across a broad range of industries, allowing highly-regulated industries such as healthcare, legal, government and financial services to work within a private cloud environment. (HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, SSAE16, PCI and ISO 27002). Data is encrypted in transit and at rest in order to ensure superior security.
  • Intrusion Protection & Prevention – Advanced, multi-tiered security protocols work together in layers to protect the network at all times.  Security-monitoring software includes intrusion detection, virus scanning, system logs and notifications of suspicious activity in real-time.
  • Automated File Backup, Data Restore & Synchronization – Via FileAssist, organizational information is stored in a private cloud gateway and service-oriented architecture with stringent compliance standards.  Data is encrypted in transfer and at rest.  
  • Robust Administrative Console – Administrators can define global policies to meet internal and regulatory policies, as well as create customized user level access, connection boundaries, stringent data access rules and customized file retention rules. FileAssist also offers workflow templates to streamline complex storage and archival requirements.
  • State-of-the-Art Data Center – The FileAssist service is hosted in a highly secure data center environment, using Enterprise-grade infrastructure that is deployed and managed 24/7 by All Covered. 
  • Tracking & Audit Features - Essential tracking controls allow administrators to closely monitor company data, and user action reports itemize newly created and deleted accounts, password resets, and status and profile changes for detailed administrative monitoring at all times.
  • Business Mobility and Continuity – FileAssist offers version control and continuous availability.  By streamlining file sharing and workflow through a single portal, FileAssist offers synchronization, cross-platform compatibility, and mobile solutions within a single application and user experience.  
  • Direct Integration – The bizhub Connector for FileAssist app allows seamless integration for securely scanning, storing and sharing of information. With this bizhub MarketPlace app, users can browse through the FileAssist folders, access files, scan documents into selected folders or upload them onto any of the other FileAssist-enabled devices, all at the MFP panel. 

“Large-scale collaboration is essential to business success.  FileAssist simplifies the process of connecting people, practices and workflows – both internally and externally – without compromising security,” says Sam Errigo, Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services, Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. “Konica Minolta’s first solely developed cloud solution responds to customer demand for an integrated solution that operates seamlessly within existing workflow environments and enterprise content management solutions, with reliability, scalability and redundancy.”
