Dropbox-like app developed for NZ businesses

According to Layer3, Filecloud is designed to serve as a basic app for businesses, and as a document management tool for IT departments

Upper Hutt based Layer3 has developed Filecloud, an application similar in functionality to Dropbox.

The app is designed to serve as a basic application for businesses that want a simple file storage option, and as a administration and document management tool for IT departments that need analysis and auditing of file management information.

According to the firm, Filecloud data is fully encrypted (448 bit) and will sync across all devices. It provides for unlimited versions of documents, allows for re-instatement of deleted files and offers a full reporting suite.

Chief executive of Layer3 Hayden Kirk said the application took six months to develop.

“Our customers are all very comfortable with cloud file storage as a concept, but many of them prefer to use a New Zealand-based tool because it provides additional security. An added advantage of using a New Zealand-based cloud storage system is that New Zealand businesses will probably get free up and download traffic, depending on their ISP,” Hayden said.

The company’s Filecloud application sits alongside its virtual office suite and users are provided with full access to the company's local help desk.

“This means we can provide an end-to-end cloud computing solution for customers with just one PC or with hundreds," said Hayden.
