1-8-2018 2-56-05 PM
There are many solutions available for file sharing and syncing over the Internet nowadays, most file sync and share solutions are not designed for the unique storage and performance requirements of virtualized environments.
Citrix ShareFile is developed with hosted desktops in mind, so you can use the same file sync and share solution across physical and virtual endpoints, and across on-premise and Cloud-based storage locations.
According to surveys, around 70% of knowledge workers use Cloud file storage and sharing tools for their work activities, and many of them say they use unsanctioned tools daily.
ShareFile provides industry-leading security, auditing capabilities, and compliance controls for safe content sharing, allowing organizations to safeguard data, documents, content, users, and devices with one solution.
ShareFile serves as a balance to the existing Microsoft infrastructure, extending the value of Office and Office 365 subscriptions and leveraging Azure investments. No wonder companies want to take advantage of the benefits of Citrix ShareFile. By having that in mind, ShareFile adds value to your existing infrastructure because organizations want flexibility to choose where their data is stored on-premises, on their Azure Cloud or a combination of both in order to meet their specific needs for data control, compliance, performance and of course costs.

Features and Benefits:

Document Management: ShareFile ensures safe exchange of internal and external-facing documents including contracts, proposals, training tools, onboarding paperwork, perfor­mance reviews, marketing collateral, sales presentations, and product information.

ShareFile extends an organizations’ data strategy beyond data stored in ShareFile to include existing network file drives, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business –allowing a single point of access to all data sources. Using Storage Zone Connectors makes it easy to securely access documents which otherwise cannot be accessed outside of corporate networks or on mobile devices.
In conclusion, mobile access to enterprise data is a critical component of full productivity for mobile workers. While workers demand an enjoyable experience, organizations are concerned about secure and seamless access to internal resources. Which is quite obvious! ShareFile Storage Zone Connectors help enterprises provide secure mobile access to data residing behind the corporate firewall or NetScaler. This solution extends the value of SharePoint and network drives in a BYO (Bring-Your-Own-Device) world and enables enterprises to fully mobilize data with Citrix ShareFile.
