Improve security and control with ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana)

October 10th 2016

In a production environment, data continuously flows into our system (Alfresco) from different servers, but with the time it can get larger and larger. As the data grows larger, our analytics will slow up, resulting in sluggish insights. So, are you wasting lot of time and effort on retrieving and analysing valuable business insights from your logs?

Our solution - ELK Stack (collection of Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) is a log analytics platform which resolves these problems. In a nutshell, Logstash collects and parses logs, then Elasticsearch indexes and stores the information. Kibana then presents the data in visualisations that provide actionable insights into one’s environment.

 


Add An Extra Security Layer To Protect Your Content

September 21st 2016

Have you ever wondered why your sensitive information should stay locked behind a simple username and password combination? Nowadays, we have several instances where our personal or official information is misused as a result of basic username and password authentication vulnerabilities. This is the common threat faced by all of us!

Our solution provides extra layer of security, two factor authentication and reCAPTCHA to effectively protect your content from other security breaches. Verification with two factor authentication requires two independent factors to be provided for authentication. Also reCAPTCHA helps to protect your content from external threats while letting reap people pass through with ease.

Alfresco and Open Data through Open Standards

November 20th 2014

Open data is the idea that certain data should be freely available for everyone to use and republish as they wish, without restrictions from copyrights, patents or other mechanisms of control. Probably the most common Alfresco use case is driven by organisations wanting to be able to manage their documents from an internal point of view, where security is key.  But there are other use cases like with Universities & some Government departments where sharing information and knowledge is just as important as how you store and manage it.

Learn in this months web talk how Alfresco can provide these capabilities under extended standards and how Zaizi has taken care of these use cases.

 


Alfresco Content Recommendation

October 16th 2014

Enterprise Content Management systems such as Alfresco provide great features to organise your content. For example, Alfresco provides aspects, categories and tagging to organise documents.  

However to organise your documents, the end user has to "manually" add the relevant tags or assign the correct category. This is where machine learning comes in to play. Machine learning learns the data, and in our case, content.  This can be applied to organise, find and analyse large volume of content much more effectively and automatically provide relevant, personalised recommendations.

Join Zaizi on this quick 10 minute web talk to learn just how this can be done for any organisation.

 


External Collaboration (Enterprise to enterprise sync)

September 4th 2014

Alfresco in the cloud allows you to securely share documents and files with people outside an organisation, without allowing public access to its on premise Alfresco instance. But not all organisations can, by law or by choice, store their documents outside their country jurisdiction, or give up full control over hosting and security policies. 

For those who cannot take advantage of Alfresco in the cloud, it is entirely possible to customise an Alfresco on premise instance to synchronise to another one, which then will effectively act as a private cloud. 

Watch this quick demonstration to learn how to:

- Securely engage and collaborate with external stakeholders, while retaining full control of the system.
