Citrix Content Collaboration vs. the competition 

With the growing need for organizations to mobilize their business, the ability to sync and share files with employees both inside and outside of the organization is a critical part of daily life. Unfortunately, many businesses rely on consumer-grade file sharing services or other “lightweight” startup tools—which leaves them vulnerable to a number of data security risks and compliance regulations.

Citrix Content Collaboration is an industry-leading file sync and sharing solution that meets the needs of today’s mobile business without compromising security. With a robust set of features and integration capabilities, IT can feel confident that data is kept safe without a complicated deployment process.

Our company is no longer reliant on OneDrive, Dropbox, or Google Drive. ShareFile offers enhanced security over shared files and who is accessing them.
