The Anchor Platform

The Anchor platform is comprised of multiple components:
  • Windows 10 Agent: Enforce control over unstructured data located on endpoint machines. 
  • Server Agents: Anchor, monitor, and manage data directly stored on internal network shares. 
  • 3rd Party Sharing and direct cloud consumption: Share and retain control of content to users and organizations that do not have Anchor. Work directly with anchored files stored in popular cloud services like Egnyte, Box, Dropbox, and OneDrive/SharePoint.
