The Secret is Out About Enterprise File-Sharing Solutions

Citrix ShareFile is a secure enterprise file sharing solution that allows users to easily share data with customers, partners and coworkers. You can control sensitive corporate data without tethering your employees to their desktop computers, and without worrying about data security. Here are the basics.

A is for access

Telecommuting is the wave of the work future; some 30 million Americans work from home at least once a week! Working away from the office saves money, increases productivity and even reduces turnover. But people can't be productive if they don't have access to their documents and files.

That's where ShareFile comes in. This enterprise file sharing solution gives employees a simple and easy way to upload, store, download and send the projects that they're working on. From iPhones and Blackberries to Macs and PCs, ShareFile gives you secure access to your files so you can work from home, on the bus, in a plane or anywhere else you go. There are apps for Apple, iPhone, Android and Windows phones, as well as iPad and Android tablets that offer all of the functionality of your PC.

B is for business

ShareFile Enterprise is built for business. It's more than just a file sharing and storage service. Implementation and management is fast and simple, and it builds into your existing infrastructure. Clients who use ShareFile are serious about security regulations and privacy policies. Our flexible, world-class security features accommodate what you need to protect data.

You can control how sensitive data is stored, accessed and shared. Create custom reports and track and log activity as your compliance needs require. ShareFile also integrates with data loss prevention (DLP) systems to restrict sharing based on DLP classification. Learn more about ShareFile Enterprise Security in this white paper.

C is for control

Every ShareFile user is different, and there's no one-size-fits-all solution. That's why our clients are able to customize their accounts at several levels. The ShareFile Platinum Edition offers a collaborative workspace where anyone can exchange, track and edit content without storage limitations. Platinum clients have unlimited cloud storage as well as access to RightSignature, so you can securely sign and send documents right from your phone, tablet or computer.

The Platinum Edition supports approval chains and movements towards enterprise "home drives," so users can store everything in one place. Security options let you control the storage and access of sensitive data, which can be stored on premises, in the cloud or a combination of both, depending on your organizational needs. It's a custom, cost-effective enterprise file-sharing solution offering everything you need — and nothing you don't.

Now that you know the ABCs of an enterprise file sharing solution, check out what ShareFile offers and see how it can help your business.
