Sharing Documents in the Security Age

You wouldn't shout out your Social Security number in a crowded mall, send an expensive piece of jewelry through the mail without insuring it or drop an envelope containing a check in the mailbox without sealing it shut.

So why would you take such reckless measures with your business data? Citrix ShareFile offers document sharing in a fast, easy, affordable and — most importantly — secure way.

ShareFile is a cloud-based file-sharing solution that cuts no corners when it comes to protecting your data. Here’s what we do to ensure your documents are shared securely.

Multi-Factor Authentication

A double layer of password protection keeps your files accessible only to selected users.


Your data remains encrypted during both the transfer and storage phases using up to 256-bit AES encryption — the same encryption protocol used by the U.S. government for sending top secret information.

Secure Datacenters

Our datacenters are SSAE 16 accredited and feature hurricane-rated roofs and multiple redundant power sources.

Server Backups

With ShareFile, your data doesn’t live in just one place. All files are regularly backed up to multiple server locations to guard against any disaster scenario.

Mobile Security

We take secure document sharing on the road by allowing you to track account activity or set expiration policies with our mobile app. Plus you’ll enjoy all the same security features on your mobile device as you do on your desktop, and you can even lock or wipe data from a lost or stolen device. 

Customizable Settings

Want to receive an alert when someone downloads a file? View a previous version of a file long after it’s already been changed? Or track a record of changes as they’re made? All of this is possible with ShareFile.

Don’t take any chances with your business information. Sign up for a free 30-day trial with ShareFile to experience the peace of mind that can be offered to your business by secure document sharing.
