TechTarget reports that storage vendors throughout 2023 bet big on unified management and collaboration tools as what the market will want and what will help them stand out.
Panzura Edge, released in September 2023, enables users to create a software gateway for remote access to the CloudFS storage namespace. Edge adds file collaboration and security features to CloudFS to replicate a file-sharing experience like Box or Dropbox.
Other vendors agree that governance and policy controls will become more important for storage platforms. Legal and industry regulations, as well as proper data hygiene to protect against ransomware, will drive demand for these controls.
