Social. Mobility. Context awareness. Nontraditional content. User experience. Consumerization. All of these were hot topics at the Gartner Portals, Content & Collaboration Summit in San Diego last week.
After scoring the highest rating given in Gartner’s MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing*, it was fitting for Citrix ShareFile to exhibit its solution to business and IT leaders at the event.
In the MarketScope review, Citrix ShareFile’s strengths included integrations with Citrix Receiver, Citrix XenDesktop, Citrix XenMobile and Citrix Podio, as well as the multi-product aspect of our portfolio including sync tools, mobile apps and more. We saw the effect these integrations can have in action at the summit, as attendees at the event were especially interested in how the ShareFile product works within their current Citrix environment.

Prior to using ShareFile, staff at PharPoint Research, Inc. had struggled to maintain an internal document management system and found that the costs of using a self-managed system outweighed the benefits. The company collects and analyzes results from medical research on behalf of its clients, so transferring large amounts of data was a key concern. Moreover, they needed a user-friendly process to make it easy for clients to get information. The internal system was difficult for users to navigate, required significant time for employees to manage and occasionally caused problems as a result of technical errors or the need to accommodate increased use.
ShareFile has become a globally-known file-transfer solution and its emphasis on security has made it a best-in-class solution for clients in the financial industry.
Security is of the utmost importance for clients in this industry. Every day advisors handle sensitive information such as Social Security numbers, quarterly performance reports, investment account numbers, billing statements and other personally identifiable information (PII). Most financial advisors are aware that this sort of information should never be sent via email, but it’s hard to find a solution that is both secure and easy to use. Advisors are often left playing a balancing act between security and simplicity, which leaves clients frustrated when the software is too cumbersome to use. In an industry where client relations is key, advisors need a service that they can be confident will fulfill security requirements without causing angst.
With Citrix being a sponsor of Telework Week, taking place this week March 4-8, we took the opportunity to sit down with Jesse Lipson, ShareFile Founder and VP and GM of Data Sharing at Citrix, to discuss his view on teleworking and the ever evolving work space.
As someone who has two start-ups under his belt and is leading a business at Citrix, how do you feel about the adoption of teleworking?
I feel like enabling teleworking in your business is very practical when trying to attract top talent to your company. Teleworking does not just encompass working from home, but also includes working away from the main hub, in satellite offices. Whether an employee is working from the main office, satellite offices or from home, I don’t want location to ever hinder me from bringing on a great employee. This is one of the reasons why Citrix has offices all over the world, to bring talent in from all over the world.
Do you collaborate on projects often with colleagues and clients? Are you constantly emailing files back and forth to give and receive feedback on important documents? If so, you can save loads of time and create an easier workflow for you and the people you work with by utilizing folders within ShareFile. You will fall in love with folders in no time after learning about these four ShareFile folder features!
If you have a certain group of people you work with on a particular project, you can create a distribution group to organize a group of users. Instead of adding several users to a folder or as recipients on an outgoing send or request email, a distribution group can be created to represent several users at once. Folder permissions to a distribution group will apply to every member. If for any reason you need to remove a member from a distribution group, they will lose folder access permissions given to that group.
