Substantial Savings

FileCloud Online gives you more, for less. Take our 100 user deployment package for example: with a 3-year subscription, clients can save over $18,000 in comparison to a similar service such as Dropbox Business Server Backup. Plus, we offer unlimited free external web user accounts — an offer almost unheard of in file-hosting services.

FileCloud Received Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Distinction the fourth consecutive time! 92% of our customers are willing to recommend us.

Dropbox enterprise security has long-since dominated the file-sharing market. However, recent decisions — uninformed price hikes, forced upgrades, privacy issues and non-consensual application installations to name a few — have driven even long-term Dropbox clients to start looking for effective alternatives. We provide exactly this. FileCloud Online is a powerful, award-winning, enterprise file-sharing, sync and endpoint product hosted on AWS infrastructure. We have been recognized by the Gartner Customers’ Choice Award in 2018 and 2019, and were named in the 2018 Gartner MQ for Content Collaboration Platform.

With a massive variety of choices for data-center regions — US East, US West, EU, Australia and Hong Kong — we aim to meet all your needs, from data residency requirements to low latency access – similar to dropbox business server locations. In addition to file-sharing and -syncing, FileCloud Online also offers endpoint PC, mobile and file-server backups to your cloud. Our platform allows for full customization: our clients can use their own logos, domain names to create the professional branding and user-experience of their company vision. Our files are protected securely through customer encryption keys, and all of our clients receive legendary support from professional engineers who will work with you to ensure your deployment is a huge success.

FileCloud Online is a fast-growing, privately owned company that, unlike many of our competitors today, answer first and foremost to our customers.
