-- On the 1st of June, FileLocker™ will launch data storage for its application inside the UK, allowing businesses to sync, share, and collaborate within compliance of the Data Protection Act
MANCHESTER, England, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FileLocker™ will begin offering its file sharing solution, hosted in its UK-based data centre on 1 July, 2013. This puts FileLocker on the very short list of firms offering hosting for their file sharing services inside the European Union, specifically the United Kingdom, enabling compliance with the Data Protection Act.

FileLocker currently offers the option of hosting FileLocker privately in clients' own data centres or on-premise servers. This method is ideal for many firms who must own the hardware on which they host their cloud-based applications. However, smaller enterprises may not wish to invest in hardware for on-premise deployments. For firms that must store data within United Kingdom, but do not wish to deploy their own on-premise server, FileLocker will host its solution in a London-based data centre. The service retails at £6 per user per month.
Truly Secure File Sharing inside the United Kingdom
FileLocker employs end-to-end encryption from desktop to cloud to keep information completely safe. Files are protected before leaving a device with a personal passphrase known only to the account-holder, transferred over a 256-bit SSL connection, encrypted again and then stored in the FileLocker cloud. Also, files are kept for an unlimited amount of time and each-and-every past version can be restored (unlimited versioning).
FileLocker's UK data centre offers physical security features required for military-grade data storage. These include: 24/7 surveillance, biometric credential checks, backup generators, temperature and humidity controls. To backup within this data centre, please reach out to a FileLocker representative at http://filelocker.com/en-uk/collaborate-with-filelocker.htm.
FileLocker: Built by Data Protection Experts
FileLocker is created by Infrascale, whose technology powers over one-thousand cloud storage brands, including SOS Online backup. During its development cycle, FileLocker's underlying technology has been put to use by over a million individual and company accounts and shared over a billion files. Ken Shaw, CEO of Infrascale says, "Businesses in the UK are adopting file sharing at an alarming rate, which improves their productivity massively. However, the downside is that most of these apps store data in the US, clearly outside of the wishes of the DPA. FileLocker allows Great Britain's businesses to both increase their productivity with a robust collaboration tool and keep their data inside the country."
Infrascale connects people, devices and their data in ways that are truly secure.
Headquartered in El Segundo, California, Infrascale's cloud platform runs from eleven data centers on five continents. Infrascale's software spans mobile, desktop and cloud and powers FileLocker, Enterprise Protect™, SOS Online Backup and over one-thousand independent cloud service companies, VARs and MSPs.
