Manage all network-stored files

Not just files associated with user and group storage. In addition to policies, Micro Focus Storage Manager “operations” can automatically copy, move, and groom any file based on type, age, last access, and more. Operations are ideal for archiving or deleting orphaned files and removing temp files.

Controls data access

Let Micro Focus Storage Manager implement the policies’ settings so that only authorized users can access potentially sensitive data.
