FileShadow for Slack Enables Smarter Workflow Between Platforms

FileShadow and Slack come together to collect, preserve, curate and publish workspace content

PROVO, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#cloudstorageFileShadow, Inc. today announces FileShadow for Slack, an integration where users of both platforms can collect, preserve, curate and publish their content so teams can smoothly collaborate. All files posted on Slack—whether or not they are visible or archived in your Slack channels—are viewable, protected and searchable in FileShadow.

FileShadow for Slack allows users to:

  • Automatically catalog and aggregate Slack files to your FileShadow Vault.
  • Start a Slack conversation within FileShadow over shared content, making it simple to discuss changes and updates to files.
  • Share FileShadow files to multiple Slack workspaces, channels and team members directly from within FileShadow.
  • Lessen the need to move between platforms by easily sharing FileShadow files in Slack or directly from within FileShadow.
  • Collect, preserve, curate, publish and search for Slack files right from FileShadow.

“With FileShadow for Slack, you can work transparently between Slack and FileShadow,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. “Any Slack user, for example those in engineering, legal, accounting and other industries, who have workflows and document-intensive back and forth with customers, colleagues and clients, will find value in archiving and protecting their Slack files in the FileShadow Vault.”

FileShadow provides a single, secure vault from which to search and access files from Slack or any other source. The service aggregates cloud storage accounts such as iCloud, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business; local storage (macOS, Windows Desktops, Windows Virtual Desktops); and network and direct-attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices.

FileShadow delivers easy access to your files. The files are automatically categorized through a machine learning process that analyzes the content of any file—OCR of PDF documents or image analysis of photos—and creates tags relating to the content therein. With that machine learning process, you can find better what you need through even simple searches. FileShadow also includes a version history of each file to maintain records of past changes.

FileShadow provides peace-of-mind when it comes to protecting internal company files derived from Slack. FileShadow provides “11 nines” of durability for optimal file protection from Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.
