Document editing in browser - Office Online Server and LibreOffice Online Integration
FileCloud 14 integrates with Microsoft Office Online Server and Collabora's LibreOffice to bring seamless browser based document editing capabilities.

This industry leading integration supports Microsoft Office document types (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) and Open Office document types (*.odt, *.odp and *.ods).

Drive application for macOS
FileCloud 14 brings a new unique Drive application for macOS that addresses many enterprise use cases. FileCloud Drive is an ideal client for users working on laptops (on Windows or macOS) where local disk storage is limited. The drive app will make remote files appear locally as a local mounted drive.
During file access, FileCloud Drive fetches the file from the cloud on demand to provide transparent file access for end users. It doesn't consume permanent local disk storage. Companies from highly regulated verticals like finance and health prefer FileCloud Drive Client because the files never need to be stored offline. FileCloud Drive for macOS is now available from our website: https://www.getfilecloud.com.
File Analytics, Business Intelligence and Admin Reports
The amount of data being managed by enterprises is staggering and growing every year. According to a projection by IDC and EMC, stored data by will grow to 40 zettabytes by 2020, resulting in a 50-fold growth from the beginning of 2010. This explosive growth in enterprise data brings new security and regulatory challenges to IT departments. To protect and manage this data deluge, organizations must understand the volume of data, types of data as well as file sharing and data access patterns. FileCloud's new business intelligence layer responds to these challenges by providing file analytics, usage analytics, client device distribution, access reports based on Geo IP, peak usage and workload patterns.
