Citrix ShareFile named a Leader by Forrester

Finding balance between security and compliance and workplace productivity and simplicity is a struggle all businesses face. Users want technology that just works and is reliable and simple. Businesses need technology tools to be secure and adhere to necessary compliance. Many business leaders and IT professionals feel these requirements are in conflict but at Citrix ShareFile, we bridge the gap and provide both.

ShareFile provides more than just the ability to share large files – it’s about enhancing the workplace experience, mobilizing workflows and collaboration while maintaining best-in-class security and compliance. For delivering this balance, ShareFile continues to be identified as a leader. We’re excited to share that leading analyst firm Forrester recently released its report The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise File Sync and Share Platforms, Cloud Solutions, Q4 2017, in which Citrix ShareFile is positioned as a leader.

In naming ShareFile a leader in the EFSS market, Forrester specifically called out ShareFile’s security and collaboration efforts:

Citrix differentiates with its process and security offerings. Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based Citrix provides cloud and hybrid deployment options for ShareFile, its EFSS offering. Customers can share and collaborate on files as well as get approvals or e-signatures in the context of a business process. Large files – up to 100 GB – are supported by default. Customers can protect content with DLP, mark sensitive items with configurable watermarking tools, and execute auditable transactions with digital signature support. A virtual data room (VDR) solution is available for sensitive deal room requirements.

Customers with data residency requirements can select from Citrix-managed storage planes in at least 8 countries The ShareFile application – executed from the “control plane”, which is available in two regions – US and EU. ShareFile has minimal support for cognitive services to optimize recognition, recommendations, or tagging.

Evaluate ShareFile when robust file sharing and task management is a top requirement, and flexibility in choice of cloud is desired. Existing Citrix clients can incorporate ShareFile as part of their broader digital workplace or mobility suite.

“In today’s work-from anywhere world, enterprises must deliver employees an easy-to-use solution that answers the need for productivity, mobility, and security,” according to Adolfo Rodriguez, VP, Product, Citrix. “ShareFile has long heritage as a leader, not only with the EFSS community, but also within the Citrix community. He summarizes, “For enterprises — frankly, for companies of any size — looking for an EFSS solution that has been built to work in virtualized environments without compromising security and storage choice, ShareFile is the best choice.”
