Another day, Another Accolade! Citrix ShareFile has been honored as the Best New Product of the Year – Enterprise and SMB category in the Best in Biz Awards 2017 International.

We are thrilled to announce that Citrix ShareFile has been named the silver winner in Best New Product of the Year — Enterprise and SMB category in Best in Biz Awards 2017 International. Best in Biz is the only independent global business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications from around the world. Almost 300 public and private companies hailing from all sectors of the global economy from more than 30 countries competed in Best in Biz Awards’ fifth annual International program.

Winners in the program were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of judges hailing from a wide spectrum of top-tier publications and media outlets and from 15 countries and all continents. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Each year, only editors, writers and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards can best leverage the expertise, experience, and objectivity of its influential judges to determine award winners.

 More than twenty years after the internet became a must-have tool and medium for businesses, it’s fascinating to see how leading firms, as encapsulated by this strong crop of Best in Biz Awards contenders, demonstrate how far we’ve come,” said Mathew Schwartz, judging his fourth Best in Biz Awards competition. “I was especially struck by how strong the cloud computing segment continues to be — not just apps but also infrastructure — and how even with the best technology in the world, user interface design and the user experience remains so crucial.” — Mathew Schwartz, Data Breach Today (United Kingdom)

Key ShareFile differentiators include:

Security by design: 

We understand the challenges in balancing security and user experience. Our vision is to enable security automation based on data and its contexts like user, device, location, operations and other relevant data. Key security features that enable our success include

  • Multilayer Security: Granular controls protect encrypted data at rest (with AES), in transit (with SSL), and during access and use.
  • Enterprise Key Management (EKM): Company-owned encryption keys allow organizations to safeguard data within private on-premises and cloud repositories.
  • Information Rights Management (IRM): The authentication process follows the file itself, ensuring secure access to sensitive content only by intended recipients.
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP): DLP helps organizations enforce regulated industry requirements, company governance policies, and security parameters for audit reporting and compliance.
  • Security, Global Performance, and Regulatory Compliance: ShareFile ensures compliance with privacy laws and sensitive data residency requirements (including HIPAA, HITECH, and SOC-2) in regulated industry sectors.

Data Source Choice:

ShareFile is one of the few offerings that gives organizations the choice of where to store files, allowing selection of the option that best meets the company’s needs, including any cloud, on-premises, and hybrid IT infrastructures. ShareFile serves as a “single pane of glass” for multiple storage repositories, and delivers value for content stored within ShareFile as well as outside of ShareFile via “Connectors” that allow users to connect to network shares, Microsoft SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Google Drive, and personal cloud connectors, extending connectivity to all your digital sharing and collaboration tools.

Streamline User Collaboration with Document Workflows:

ShareFile’s simple, customized, intuitive user interface integrates document workflows and empowers teams to get more done faster. Built-in co-authoring, feedback, and approval processes give colleagues a convenient hub to collectively create, review, modify, annotate, track document changes, and get legally binding signatures in real time.

Optimized for Virtualization: 

ShareFile is the only EFSS solution that is optimized for the unique storage and performance requirements of virtualized environments. This means organizations can use ShareFile for all their workers, whether they are in the field using mobile devices, in the office on a laptop or anywhere using virtual desktops.

Secure Mobile Access

ShareFile enables mobile productivity with read-write access to data, allows employees to securely share files with anyone and sync files across all of their devices. ShareFile also allows users to securely provide and request sensitive data and documents that are needed for the service.  IT also gains the flexibility to store enterprise data in the most optimal locations and leverage existing investments to meet compliance and performance requirements.
