GET UNPARALLELED STRUCTURE, AUTOMATION, AND MANAGEMENT CAPABILITIES FOR USER AND GROUP STORAGE

The key to productivity is eliminating tasks that slow you down. With automation at the heart of Senergy, you will never be held back again. The policies that you define govern every action on your network based on identity, time and location. With manual tasks now automated, your productivity won't suffer. 

Senergy: A critical component of a File Analysis strategy

An objective of File Analysis is to harness and reduce your "data glut". This begins with first defining the contents of your "dark data", and then determining which files to retain, archive, and delete.

Manage Data Assets

Ensure that your data is secure and being accessed by only the right people with Senergy's directory-enacted policies. Data privacy, rights and access analysis, data disposition and more are taken care of. 

Automated data governance helps your organization mitigate risk and increase network security.

Your organization's data is a valuable asset, and beyond securing it for your own internal operations, it also needs to be governed according to external data privacy regulations. Senergy helps you do this by applying user identity information to either grant or deny access to sensitive data. 

 

Automate Routine Management Tasks

Senergy automatically performs provisioning, rights settings, renames, storage transfers, vaulting, disposition and reassignments to save your IT staff thousands of hours of manual management. 

Every hour your IT department spends on manual management of network storage is an hour taken away from other IT projects. Let Senergy automate your user and group file storage lifecycle management, and reduce man-hour costs. 

Zero day start can be achieved through Senergy's on-boarding automation for employees or students. Have a home folder provisioned, create a personal folder in a collaborative storage area, establish access rights, set quota limits, and adjust the user's rights with role changes later down the road. If the user leaves, Senergy will even clean up the file storage and vault, dispose of, or archive the data properly. 

 

Get a Grip on Data Growth

Data management costs can increase dramatically if data growth isn't controlled. Senergy's policies can groom, archive, and dispose of files, or distribute them for load balancing. 

Lifecycle management is the easiest way to control data growth, through policies that automatically move, delete and distribute data. By only retaining necessary files on your primary storage, you can reduce the cost of backing it up and minimize device and facility costs. 

File Grooming is a great tool for controlling data growth, and can be done automatically through Senergy's defined policies by specifying the types of files that are allowed to be stored on your network. These policies can also be defined to remove data for users that have left your organization and distribute stored data across multiple servers when capacity thresholds have been reached. 

 

Increase Data Security

Set policies that control folders and dictate users' access rights, then let Senergy implement the policy settings. Only authorized users with defined roles can access potentially sensivite data and file storage. 

Role-based access is the best way to ensure data security, while still allowing users to maintain productivity.

Grant specific departments the access they need, while restricting what they don't by setting one policy that governs all members. Define where the system places each department member's home folders, the folders' access rights, disk-space quotas and more. 

The same access policies can be applied to manage storage for group members, where personal folders can be created in collaborative storage areas and governed by that group's directory-services-based policies. This is great for many school districts, who use this feature for course-specific storage areas where students can collaborate on projects. 

Simplify Data Migrations

A simple two-step process allows you to move data from eDirectory to Active Directory, and now from Active Directory to Active Directory. 

Migrate your network data without disruptions, while retaining file systems rights and with reduced costs. 

Senergy retains all important metadata and timestamp information with every migration. If users are logged in during a migration, Senergy skips over their home directories and proceeds with the initial migration process. It then checks back over skipped users until they are logged out and their home directories can be migrated, maintaining all user access rights as user and group storage are moved. 

Extend Your IDM System

Senergy has the power to take user storage action when your identity management system takes user account action, extending your identity management system. 

Because Senergy is tied to Active Directory, it can take user-account action along with user-storage action. Senergy takes the actions of the identity management system a step further with storage management by establishing a network home folder and provisioning the necessary documents the user will need in that folder. Senergy establishes the home folder’s location, access rights, and storage quota according to the user’s role. Additionally, it can establish access to group storage areas.

How can Senergy help address my organization’s mandates for compliance to industry and government regulations?

Senergy enables you to you demonstrate regulatory compliance for data retention, security, and access.

First, you can specify, within the Active Directory identity-based policies themselves, where user and collaborative storage will reside. This could be on shares or servers where sensitive corporate data is not stored.

Additionally, Senergy lets you set and then the product enforces file system rights when the user home folder and collaborative storage folders are created. Full Control is not a default right that Senergy grants to the user and thus, prevents potential security threats. If users have been previously been given Full Control, or any other right you wish to revoke, you can simply perform a Manage Operation in Senergy to enforce all users into compliance with the rights as indicated in the policy.

Finally, Senergy lets you indicate when and where to vault the user home folders when users leave the organization. With this knowledge, you can easily retrieve and restore this data when needed.

How does Senergy manage collaborative storage?

First of all, let’s define what we mean by “collaborative storage.” Collaborative storage is a shared storage area where a group of people in an organization can collaborate by sharing files. For example, a cross-functional project team in an organization might need a collaborative storage area where all members could access and submit project files.

Senergy lets you easily create collaborative storage areas through collaborative storage policies that you can assign to group objects or to an organizational unit (also known as a container). You can structure the collaborative storage in one of two ways:

  • Creating a single project folder where all project members have access and have the same rights.
  • Creating a project folder with a specified owner. The project folder has subfolders for each of the members of the group. This configuration is done through a process called “Dynamic Template Processing.”

Senergy works with Active Directory to ensure that only members of the Group object have access to collaborative storage. As new members are added to the group, they are automatically granted access to the collaborative storage. As members are removed, they are denied access, but the files that they submitted to the collaborative storage folder remain.

Why is the Cross-Empire Data Migration functionality sold as a separate add-on to Senergy?

The Cross-Empire Data Migration subsystem is intended for those customers that are undergoing a migration project from one platform to another. We recognize that this feature is not needed by all customers, so we have decided to only make this feature available to those customers that actually need it.

 
Is Senergy available only through direct purchase through Condrey Corporation?

The product may be purchased and delivered through one of the many great Condrey Corporation partners and resellers. A list of Condrey Corporation partners and resellers is available here.

 
Does the Active Directory schema have to be extended to support Senergy?

To enable collaborative storage or auxiliary storage management, you must extend the Active Directory schema to enable Senergy attributes. If you do not intend to have Senergy manage collaborative storage or auxiliary storage, there is no need to extend the Active Directory schema.

Note: You extend the Active Directory schema using SchemaTool.exe
