FileCloud is the Best Citrix ShareFile Alternative

Check Detailed Feature Comparison Below Between ShareFile and FileCloud

ShareFile for Enterprise Sync will be fully deprecated as of October 31, 2019, and will no longer function for customers. Those customers will need to look for another solution that offers file and folder syncing on a file server.

FileCloud’s ServerSync converts your Windows file servers into a powerful enterprise file sharing, sync platform. ServerSync maintains copy of files and permissions between the cloud and on-premises storage and enables a hybrid cloud approach that allows traditional LAN access when on-premises, and cloud access when off-site or remote. Not all Citrix Sharefile competitors offers this feature.

For enterprises who are looking for a robust alternative to Citrix ShareFile security, FileCloud is simply the best solution out there. You have unlimited storage with 100% control over your data.
