Secure file sharing synchronization

Enterprise file sharing presents some challenges. Keeping things organized and trackable across a wide number of users can be tricky, and keeping the various files in play synchronized is an additional challenge. So how can you find the best possible solution? We'll show you how to keep your file sharing secure and synchronized.

Share with others. Sync for yourself.

Think about what you do during your workday. You spend some time in the morning on your office desktop. Use your laptop while meeting with a client over lunch. Utilize your tablet or smartphone on the train ride home. Maybe log onto your home desktop in the evening.

It wasn't that long ago that we had to keep a thumb drive on hand wherever we went to transfer all this data from one device to the next — and accessing a file from a phone was impossible. Cloud-based solutions like ShareFile have changed the game.

With ShareFile, there's no having to re-send updated or corrected documents. No risk of someone referencing the wrong information. No need to save a file to different devices. All users can see real-time changes to the same document from all over the world on a range of platforms.

You can use ShareFile to:

  • Share files between five or 500 people
  • Get stored previous file versions for easy reference and increased peace of mind
  • Use a checkout featureto get exclusive access to a file for uninterrupted modifications

  • Record details of every change to a document with activity trackers

By simply creating a ShareFile desktop folder, you can use any device connected to the Internet to send, share, access or edit a file from any location and have it all stored in one easy-to-find place.
