CTERA EFSS  -  Secure, encrypted file sharing for your end users



Cloud49 is partnered with ATOS to deliver the CTERA EFSS solution via the DCS program for applicable agencies.

Cloud49 delivers the CTERA EFSS solution via a Texas DIR cooporative contract (TSO-2643) for agencies wishing to procure the solution outside of the DCS program.


Cloud49 deploys the CTERA EFSS solution to give agencies a secure alternative to consumer file sharing applications. CTERA EFSS is a private, secure, and vendor-neutral solution for file sharing. It gives end-users the ability to synchronize files and folders across all devices and in remote oces, with easy-to-use file sharing and workspaces for team collaboration.

CTERA EFSS can be deployed as a fully private, behind-the-firewall solution in your datacenter, or as a ‘virtual private’ solution leveraging scalable public cloud infrastructure – always allowing you to retain complete control and ownership of your data.
