Best in Biz Awards: Citrix ShareFile Wins the Gold

Written by on November 19, 2012 in Product - No comments

The Best in Biz Awards honors companies and products for their business success each year. The awards program is judged by independent panels of members of top-tier business and technology publications, as well as analyst firms, like ABC, Bloomberg Businessweek, Entrepreneur, eWeek, Forbes, IDG, Inc., Network World, PC Magazine, USA Today and many more. More than 400 entries were received in this year’s awards program, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and regions in the U.S. and Canada.

We are proud to announce that Citrix ShareFile won the gold award for Enterprise Product of the Year. We are honored to receive this award as it reflects the level of ease of use, security, control and administrative functionality that we deliver. Four differentiating features include:

Built for business mobility – ShareFile was designed to meet the increased demand to work anywhere at any time from any device. In recognition of the need for mobile business tools, ShareFile released apps for iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, BlackBerry and Windows Phone later in the year. ShareFile iOS app downloads are more than doubling each quarter.

Secure – ShareFile offers the industry’s first unauthorized data access alert feature of its kind for mobile devices. Administrators can order a remote wipe of files and at the same time obtain a complete report on all files accessed, even while the device was offline, in the case of a lost or stolen phone or tablet. ShareFile also now features a poison pill feature to iOS apps and Android tablet that allows IT to set data expiration policies for mobile devices. Activity audits are available so that administrators can create reports and review access across the account.

Concierge-style customer service – Once you sign up, you get a dedicated rep – unlike competing offerings. This service has continued even as the company doubled its customer base in the past year.

Flexibility – ShareFile with StorageZones provides IT with the ability to choose optimal locations for storing their corporate data – on premises within their private cloud, in secure Citrix ShareFile-managed cloud storage or a hybrid of the two. This optimizes performance and helps organizations meet unique compliance and data sovereignty policies that require them to store data within their datacenter.
