Secure file sharing is a critical element to keeping an enterprise’s life blood—its intellectual property—pumping and protected.
Beyond simple file sharing, users need the ability to collaborate inside and outside of the organization by having access to their personal digital workspace across all their devices while giving IT all the control they need to keep IP secure.
Typical solutions involve multiple technologies from various vendors that don’t necessarily play nice with one another or work well all the time. At Citrix we’re empowering our customers to say yes by providing unique solutions that help embrace virtualization, cloud, secure mobility and more.
Problem: Current file sync-and-share solutions are not designed for the unique storage and performance requirements of virtualized environments.
Solution: Citrix ShareFile has been designed with hosted desktops in mind. In fact, ShareFile is the only enterprise file sync-and-share (EFSS) solution optimized for virtual desktops. Whether your company uses Citrix XenDesktop or any other virtual desktop solution, you can use the same file sync-and-share solution across both physical and virtual endpoints, and across on-premises and cloud storage.
With ShareFile, users are fully supported on hosted virtual desktop solutions like XenApp and XenDesktop. Content appears as a mapped Windows drive and users stay productive in the native Windows experience.
Citrix customers are already taking advantage of ShareFile and its unique virtualization capabilities. They are enjoying reduced storage costs and increased performance of file-syncing in virtualized environments. What’s making this possible is the recently introduced ShareFile Drive Mapper, which gives users access to all of their ShareFile data—as well as their network drives or SharePoint data—in one centralized location without draining their local storage.
Citrix is also helping enterprises embrace mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives by providing on-demand access to remote files and folders regardless of how much local storage is on the device. This solution also equalizes the experience between physical and virtual desktops, further increasing productivity by delivering a consistent user experience. And no matter what device the end user carries, ShareFile gives customers the freedom to store files on-premises, in the cloud or a combination of both.
The bottom line? ShareFile is the only EFSS solution built for virtualized environments that allows users to truly embrace mobility across any device while protecting enterprise intellectual property.
