YakaDrive Provides the Granular Access Control You Need to Guarantee Your Files are Safe and Accessible.

Shared drives are designed for sharing files – but they need to do so intelligently.

Shared drives allow organizations to function. They make collaboration happen. They’re foundational to modern work.

But too many consumer-grade shared drives don’t offer sufficient levels of access control. For federal agencies and secure organizations, that’s a problem. If shared drives don’t offer customizable access control, they can become dysfunctional, disorganized, and even dangerous.

That’s why YakaDrive offers comprehensive access control capabilities. It’s designed to give you full control over who can access which files. You’ll get total customization over permissions and alerts to ensure that the people who need to access files can – and the people who don’t, can’t.

Here’s how it works.

Control that Balances Security and Accessibility

Using shared drive access control, YakaDrive enables administrators to precisely protect and preserve the confidentiality of sensitive information stored in the platform.

At the same time, it permits the shared access and collaboration that’s needed for work to happen in a modern organizational environment.

This balance is enacted on two levels.

Object-Based Shared Drive Access Control

YakaDrive gives users the ability to precisely control access to and visibility of files that are stored in the drive at a granular, object-based level.

This means that access levels can be controlled from object to object – not just at folder levels, but all the way down to file-level permissions, too.

Each object in YakaDrive is equipped with its own unique access controls which specify the sensitivity of the object’s data, and allow for customization over which individual users, groups, and roles can access it.

When users authenticate, the system determines their role and their privileges for accessing files at varying levels of sensitivity or “classifications”. In all of its user interfaces, the system then dynamically filters users’ views of files so that users see only what their privileges and objects’ access controls permit them to see.

They do not see anything that their access controls do not permit them to see.

The bottom line: files are kept safe.

Users’ view of folder and files is precisely and continuously filtered to ensure the confidentiality of sensitive data in the system.

User-Based Access Control

Alongside object-level shared drive access control, user-based access controls allow YakaDrive admins to shape permission settings based on a user-centric methodology.

Users and groups can be assigned granular permissions for viewing, accessing, and editing files and folders. User privilege level then works in tandem with object-level permissions to create a secure, filtered view for every user. This is enabled on both individual user and group levels.

The end result is comprehensive control over who can access folders and files, along with comprehensive control over the specific objects that each user can access.

A Shared Drive You Can Trust

YakaDrive is built to allow for total access control, based on technology that’s been proven in the high-pressure environments of US Federal Intelligence agencies.

Best Practices for File Management

No software can keep your files clean, but YakaDrive can help. Object level access controls mean you don't need to store multiple copies of the document in multiple folders just to solve permissions issues.
