Citrix Named a Leader for Cloud and Hybrid Solutions in Enterprise File Sync and Share PlatformsDecember 18, 2017
Citrix is positioned as a leader in both The Forrester Wave: Enterprise File Sync and Share Platforms -Cloud Solutions, Q4 2017 report as well as The Forrester Wave: Enterprise File Sync and Share Platforms -Hybrid Solutions, Q4 2017 report. The two new, independent Forrester Wave reports evaluate enterprise files sync and share vendors.
According to The Forrester Wave, Cloud Solutions report, "Citrix differentiates with its process and security offerings. Citrix provides cloud and hybrid deployment options for ShareFile, its EFSS offering. Customers can share and collaborate on files, as well as get approvals or eSignatures in the context of a business process. It supports large files – up to 100 GB – by default. Customers can protect content with data loss prevention (DLP), mark sensitive items with configurable watermarking tools, and execute auditable transactions with digital signature support."
Moving beyond traditional EFSS solutions, ShareFile is a content collaboration platform that focuses on collaboration, user productivity, infrastructure modernization, security, compliance and integration. ShareFile supports hybrid architectures – that is, synchronization and sharing functions are provided as a service, while corporate files can be kept either in the ShareFile cloud repository (through Citrix ShareFile StorageZones), on third-party clouds or on-premises (through Customer-Managed StorageZones).
A recent Citrix-commissioned Wakefield Research survey captures how cloud-based apps (including hybrid) and services are redefining the nature of work for office professionals of all ages, across the U.S. According to the survey, employee expectations for flexibility – in terms of where, when and how work gets done – continue to rise, along with demand for collaborative work environments, like the ShareFile content collaboration platform, which help improve workforce experience, engagement and productivity. The study surveyed 1,300 office professionals in the U.S. across major industries including healthcare, public sector (government and higher education) and financial services.
"To remain competitive, organizations are looking beyond traditional EFSS solutions. Citrix delivers a unique content collaboration platform that includes capabilities like workflow, digital signature, and multi-cloud/hybrid storage, all while ensuring content is secure," said Adolfo Rodriguez, vice president, product, Citrix. "We believe being named a leader in both cloud and hybrid solution evaluations gives our ShareFile customers confidence. As organizations embrace cloud solutions, Citrix continues to drive innovation that helps increase productivity, while keeping apps and data secure at all times."
