Citrix Synergy 2017 is just around the corner! In addition to a live keynote from Citrix CEO Kirill Tatarinov and Innovation Talks from Malcolm Gladwell and Colin Powell, Synergy offers insights, intensive training and professional networking you won’t find anywhere else. And ShareFile is bringing a value-packed agenda to show users how to increase user productivity, streamline collaboration and modernize your IT infrastructure, all while maintaining best-in-class security and compliance features that leverage your existing investments in other Citrix Technologies. .

From Office 365 to FedRAMP, from the Cloud to desktop tools, and from custom workflows to flexible storage options you can use today, ShareFile has a lot to offer attendees at Synergy. Here is a summary of what ShareFile will offer at Synergy:

Using ShareFile for document approval and collaboration workflows

Stop endless email chains and save storage space by reducing the number of messages with bulky attachments. Plus learn how to collaborate on documents and gather feedback, approvals and electronic signatures. This session will cover the Document Workflows feature set and implementation and how to leverage Office 365 and Gmail to collaborate on documents.

Why should I use ShareFile if I already have Office 365?

Today, one out of every five corporate employees uses an Office 365 cloud service. Additionally, nearly 80% of enterprises surveyed by analysts indicated that they are already using or planning to use Office 365. With adoption becoming ubiquitous, understanding how ShareFile and OneDrive for Business work together will help you maximize the value of your Microsoft Cloud subscriptions.

Extend existing storage investments with ShareFile

Over the years, customers have made significant investments in private storage from vendors such as NetApp, EMC, HP, and Microsoft.  At the same time, there is growing demand for flexibility in how, when and where work is done. With ShareFile Enterprise, you can maintain your investment in on-premises storage repositories and still make use of them in the new world of a more mobile, agile workforce. This session will cover how StorageZone Controllers work and how to deploy them, along with best practices, connectors for network shares and SharePoint, SAML integration, and more.

Enhance your ShareFile capabilities with a unified Cloud Services API

ShareFile and RightSignature offer great capabilities, yet each has its own API, with different implementation and documentation. The Cloud Services API offers a macro view of all capabilities from these products in a uniform implementation. Join this session to learn about the capabilities of the Cloud Services API, as well as the multiple use cases where it can be used. We’ll also cover examples of solutions leveraging the API.

Deep dive on ShareFile security: IRM, DLP, RSZ

Is your data safe? Do you know if your employees are using personal online file-sharing accounts without IT approval—placing your corporate data at risk and opening your network to external threats? You need a strategy for making sure that end users do not send sensitive or critical information outside the corporate network without IT visibility and control. Join this session to learn how advanced security in ShareFile protects your corporate data from unauthorized sharing and redistribution by enabling IT to track and log user activity in real time and create custom reports to meet corporate data policies and compliance requirements.

ShareFile: all you need to know about authentication

Finally, all your files are stored securely and are available under your unique username and password on any device. This session will cover the latest feature announcements, including SAML identity provider options, using multiple for one enterprise account and user provisioning. You’ll learn why single-password access to data and files is important for enterprise users and how to simplify the management of storage. You’ll also get a preview of the new process for creating a SSO experience for network file shares and SharePoint Connectors.

FedRAMP – Security and compliance in a cloud world

As we move to the cloud, companies and governments want assurance that appropriate security controls are in place. When the data is inside our own data centers, we have awareness on and details about how information is stored and access. When moving to the cloud, ‘outside’ companies, such as Citrix, are used to hold data and processes critical to execution and security. In this session, learn how Citrix is embracing the US Federal Government FedRAMP standard and how, whether government or commercial, you can utilize the information in this important cloud security initiative to ascertain and grow confidence in the security of your data as you move to the cloud.

ShareFile Desktop Tools: how to choose the right tool for the job

ShareFile offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to desktop tools: Sync, Desktop App, and Drive Mapper address requirements for online access, offline access, disk space limitations and much more. While the flexibility is great, at times it is unclear which one is right for the job. This session will demonstrate the differences among the different tools and offer guidance on making the right choice for a Windows Desktop, Mac Desktop, and Virtual Desktop.

Why choose ShareFile over Box, Dropbox, Egnyte, Syncplicity, & other EFSS vendors

According to IDC, the enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) market will reach $2.3 billion by 2018. As the segment has grown, competition for market share has intensified. Join this session to learn about the major players in the market, the strengths and weaknesses of each, and why ShareFile has been named a leader in the EFSS industry by Gartner for three consecutive years.
