Enterprise Sync: The Benefits of Desktop Sync, For the Entire Office!
ShareFile is proud to announce the newest addition to our collection of integration tools: Enterprise Sync. With this new feature, we are excited to improve the ability of our software to integrate with the workflow of entire offices and corporations by offering better support for network and server environments. Enterprise Sync builds on the convenience of ShareFile Desktop Sync by making this feature easily deployable by a single administrator.
Released in January, ShareFile Desktop Sync quickly became the most popular feature available in the Power Tools line. Like all of the Power Tools, Desktop Sync was designed to better integrate the ShareFile web-based service with processes that our clients already utilize on a daily basis for faster and more streamlined file transfer. With Desktop Sync, local folders can be designated to synchronize with folders located on your ShareFile account, allowing files and folders to be managed through an Explorer or Finder screen. Sync jobs are created and managed though a user-friendly interface, and the development of the tool has been part of a broad effort to offer solutions that are compatible across operating systems. Desktop Sync boasts the ability to run on Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems.
By popular demand, the Enterprise Sync tool introduces the following capabilities to our Desktop Sync tool:
• Compatible with server and network environment
• Ability for an administrator to create and manage sync jobs for multiple user accounts
• Constantly run sync jobs or schedule jobs to run at only designated times
• Detailed logging on each sync job
These features will allow IT departments and other administrators to coordinate sync jobs across offices, and to back up files at the times convenient for them. This can allow for constant syncing, even when a user isn’t logged in, or only at specified times, such as in the evening outside of normal office hours to allow for less drain on network bandwidth.
Enterprise Sync is a big step towards increasing ShareFile’s ability to provide businesses with the most cutting edge and intuitive tools to improve security and convenience in file transfer. Along with the Outlook Plug-in, ShareFile API, and ShareFile Command Line Interface, Enterprise Sync can help businesses ensure that they receive all of the benefits of the ShareFile service by promoting consistent use across an office and single-user administration.
We are looking forward to adding even more improvements and supporting features soon- look forward to more updates over the next few months!
