Break Free from Dropbox with FileCloud - a Real Enterprise Solution

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 is a powerful, award-winning, enterprise file-sharing, sync, and endpoint product that can be self-hosted on-premises or hosted by us on AWS, Azure, or other cloud infrastructure. We have been recognized by the Gartner Customers’ Choice Award in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, and were named in the 2018 Gartner MQ for Content Collaboration Platform.

With an extensive variety of options 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 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 and domain names to create professional branding and user experience that align with 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 is a fast-growing file sharing and sync solution focusing on secure content collaboration. We are committed to giving clients a clean, no-friction experience, and providing maximum value with features designed for enterprises.
