In the world of cloud and data mobility, there is an expectation that information can be accessed anytime, anywhere, and from any device. While this was originally driven in the form of public cloud services, enterprise users quickly took advantage of these services as corporate IT struggled to keep up.


This user driven move to store corporate assets in the public cloud was not without risk. Corporate information began to leak into public clouds outside of the traditional enterprise security perimeter and stored in places that lacked an appropriate level of enforceable security and compliance.


Since no one doubts the advantages of mobile data access for business advantage and agility, Hitachi Data Systems offers the ability for enterprises to allow their users to securely access anytime, anyplace, and from any device through Hitachi Content Platform Anywhere (HCP Anywhere).


HCP Anywhere is a file sync and share (FSS) application. The primary purpose is to provide the ease of use of a consumer-class FSS product such as Dropbox, with enterprise class functionality that organizations can host securely on-premises. At the core of HCP Anywhere is the Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) object store that provides the security foundation of this offering.


A fundamental design goal for HCP Anywhere is to be "simply secure". This means that HCP Anywhere is designed with security as core tenet of its development. HCP Anywhere allows ease of user experience and the enforcement of organizational security policies simultaneously.


This document describes the security aspects of the HCP Anywhere product related to secure access to the system, secure access to data, and protection from threats as well as data corruption.
