Collaborate with anyone in a secure, unified workspace

Work easily and securely with anyone and improve your client experience

A flexible workforce relies on a secure way to get work done with clients and co-workers no matter the location or device. But seamless, secure access is often complicated by fragmented applications and scattered data storage. You need an agile content collaboration solution with enterprise-grade security controls that automates workflows and integrates with existing systems. The result is a unified, secure solution that removes friction and keeps the focus where it should be–on your customers.

Executive summary

  • The need for remote collaboration is stronger than ever, which in turn requires a robust solution where employees can work securely, share and collaborate.
  • Gain control over your data by choosing a file sharing solution that gives you flexible storage.
  • With Citrix Content Collaboration, every review and approval are brought together in a single shared view, so employees don’t miss a beat in their pace of productivity.

Why do organizations need enterprise file sync and sharing?

 

When companies don’t provide a file sync and sharing service, employees often use their own personal tools. IT has no control over how data is being stored or shared, and may not be aware of compromised data until it’s too late. This can be even more risky when employees use their own tools to share files with third parties.

An EFSS service combines the convenience and simplicity of a personal file-sharing service with enterprise-oriented features to boost productivity for users—and to increase security, flexibility, and control for IT. Common services include:

  • On-premises or cloud storage options
  •  Granular access control, secure authentication protocols, and authorization policies
  • Remote wipe, device lock, passcode protection, white/black listings, and data expiration policies
  • Real-time tracking and auditing of user activity
  • Integration with enterprise directory services to simplify authentication and user provisioning
  • Upload and download restrictions, file expiration dates, and restricted access based on network location

What are the benefits of enterprise file sync and sharing?

EFSS solutions offer many advantages, including:

Anywhere access: People are no longer limited to a single corporate-owned device or office location to get work done. Today’s increasingly mobile workforce expects to be able to access what they need, from any device or location, with a consumer-like experience. EFSS services enable mobile work styles by allowing users to sync files across all their devices and easily access what they need from anywhere.

Data loss prevention and disaster recovery: When data is centrally stored and managed with an EFSS service, your data is better protected from data leakage, whether from a cybersecurity attack, a lost or stolen device, or employee error. EFSS services make it easy to keep data backed up and secure, and to plan for disaster recovery.

Document workflows and collaboration: More EFSS services are evolving to include workflow and content collaboration capabilities, such as document management to ensure the safe exchange of internal and external-facing documents—contracts, proposals, training tools, onboarding paperwork, performance reviews, marketing collateral, sales presentations, product information, and more. Other common features include:

  • Legally binding e-signatures
  • Automated notifications to remind users to review and/or approve requests
  • Workflow automation with built-in co-authoring and feedback and approval processes
  • Version control so employees can track document changes across multiple data sources and devices
