File Sharing 101: Best Collaboration Tool

File-sharing collaboration has become far more advanced than e-mails, flash drives and chat boxes. With cloud-based software platforms, such as Citrix ShareFile, you have the ability to streamline your workflow through anytime, anywhere access. Discover how you can collaborate by sharing files that become living documents among you and your colleagues.

Collaborate by sharing files

It’s the modern world. And you deserve modern advantages, such as the ability to collaborate with your colleagues through sharing files. With Citrix ShareFile, you have the benefit of working in a living document that is protected through various controls and security measures.

Before you consider a platform for file-sharing collaboration, it’s important to understand how it will protect your information and your users. ShareFile employs protocols used by the U.S. government and leading financial institutions, among other security measures:

  • SSAE 16 audited datacenters
  • AES 256-bit encryption
  • SSL/TLS protocols
  • Data storage locations
  • Disaster recovery centers
  • Activity alerts and reports
  • Remote wipe for lost or stolen devices

As an administrator, you can set permissions, assign access, require check-in and check-out, establish authentication processes — and much more.

Once you’ve confirmed that the file-sharing platform offers ample security,determine if it offers adequate file syncing as well. When you have the ability to sync files, it helps to ensure that everyone you’ve provided access to work with has the most accurate, updated information.

ShareFile provides a simple process for file syncing across all connected devices: just add the ShareFile Sync folder to sync your files, then save your files.
