ShareFile Named a Leader for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing

ShareFile from Citrix was recently named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing. This should come as no surprise. I detailed in a previous blog why businesses should choose ShareFile over competitors in the file sync and sharing space. Gartner states, “Leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand. They have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market positions as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus and invest in their offerings to lead the market and affect its overall direction. Leaders can be the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a significant, satisfied customer base and enjoy high visibility in the market. Their size and maturity enable them to remain viable under changing market conditions. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialized segments.”
Not only is ShareFile easy to use and packed with features, it is also a leader in security and compliance. ShareFile gives users a true enterprise class data service that can span across all corporate and personal mobile devices, while giving IT the control it needs to provide an easy to use anytime, anywhere connection to critical data. Aside from simple file synchronization, Gartner notes that leaders also provide support for features such as:

  • Mobility – native apps for all the major mobile operating systems
  • Security – password protection, remote data wipe, encryption in transit and at rest, logging and reporting of access
  • Administration and Management – integration with Active Directory and Single Sign-On capabilities
  • Content manipulation – file editing and note taking
  • Collaboration – check-in, check-out, and change tracking
  • Simplicity and usability – file drag-and-drop uploads, and optimized user interactions
  • Storage – choice of on premises, cloud-based, or a hybrid approach

ShareFile excels in all these categories and continues to push the envelope with new features being added every month. Just in the past six months, ShareFile has gained some new features:

Jesse Lipson, GM & VP of Workspace and Workflow Cloud at Citrix sums up the Gartner report by saying:
“We feel being named a leader in multiple Magic Quadrant reports provides further validation of our consistent innovation and strong focus on providing an integrated user experience for all apps. Citrix continues to advance the experience it delivers to customers with a ShareFile workspace that moves with enterprise customers across four types of devices, continuing to create new ways to work better from anywhere and with a unique approach to restricting document sharing based on a file’s contents to enable secure collaboration whenever inspiration strikes.”
