FileCloud Online: Enterprise-Grade Content Collaboration Platform

FileCloud Online and Citrix ShareFile are secure file sharing solutions built for businesses. Compared to other players in the marketplace, both offer better external file sharing features like unlimited external accounts, Gmail/Outlook add-ins, view-only shares, and more. Both solutions specifically target organizations that do significant work with clients, vendors. and partners as part of their daily job.

Compared to ShareFile, FileCloud Online offers powerful data security features in addition to basic file sharing features. FileCloud’s governance module offers advanced data leak prevention (DLP), document retention, archival, and legal hold functionalities in addition to standard auditing. FileCloud data governance features are ideal for high security, external file sharing use cases like virtual data rooms, partner portals, and client portals. External file sharing use cases are prone to accidental sharing and data leaks. FileCloud’s Smart DLP capabilities can prevent accidental sharing of PII (personally identifiable information) data.

FileCloud Online also includes a powerful administration portal that offers a detailed audit trail (what, when, who, where, and how) and device management capabilities (remote wipe/block) to protect your enterprise content. System administrators can monitor all the file shares by users and can also keep track of system activity to monitor unusual access patterns for maximum security. They can also revoke any user shares from the admin portal. Corresponding features exist for ShareFile encryption and ShareFile data backup.
