Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Using “Events and messages” available from the MAXI license, ProVide can run any number of organization specified security checks even before the files are allowed to be stored and reject the files that do not pass. Also, ProVide can trigger notification and action pipelines after the files are stored so that the appropriate authorities are made aware and can take required actions.

ProVide unlike many other solutions does not involve uploading, transferring or changing the current file structure. Instead ProVide enables structured and secure access directly to source files. ProVide furthermore integrates seamlessly to your existing AD or to custom user permission systems.

ProVide is a predominantly a software solution running on windows servers that enables structured, monitored and secure access directly to files within a current file storage system. ProVide in that sense does not involve any data migration or external cloud storage. Please note that Provide can also be run on cloud servers e.g. any VPS but still under your organizations control. We also have a ProVide AWS SAAS alternative for temporary or persistent cloud storage.

Generally NO, not at all! Provide can be installed and rolled out in under an hour for most organizations. It is easy to configure, easy to use, integrates with your current AD, and does not require any data migration or off-site file transfers. That said: if you go beyond the “standard” implementation ProVide is a real powerhouse when it comes to system integrations, scripting and advanced functionality. Our users come up with interesting scripts and adaptations and integrate ProVide into large systems daily. We still do not know how far you can take ProVide and such implementations increase the project scope. To cater for larger projects and integrations Provide is extremely portable and customizations using scripts, or software talking to directly to our ProVide API does not affect the ability to update the core system without affecting said customizations including both looks or functionality

Yes. ProVide was built from the start not to clog the windows registry (and preferably avoid it altogether). This means setup, settings, accounts and share administration is stored in folders so that you can move an entire installation between servers. Install on new server and make sure the new server has the correct security certificate (if using HTTPS), license, move relevant folders, and if included in the same a domain it will work.
