Share Files Online with Privacy and Data Ownership
Email attachments were probably the most popular way of sending or sharing files online. However, there are size limitations, file extension restrictions, among other constraints. And you can't easily share an entire folder as an email attachment.
Using a personal Dropbox account or using Office 365 accounts are also popular ways to share files online with yourself, your colleagues, your business partners and your friends.
When it comes to business file sharing online for your mobile workforce, email attachment is no longer efficient and Dropbox is no longer secure. Sharing files online by sending files through a third party hosting service first creates data sprawl problems and compliance issues later. Who owns your data after your files are sitting some place else?
You need a solution to share files online privately, without sending files to a third party first and maintain ownership of your own files and folders.
Private online file folder sharing is possible?
Share files online doesn't mean you have to use a public cloud storage file sharing service, such as Dropbox or Office 365, even though these public file sharing services are popular among users.
For businesses, not only they have motivations for their mobile workforces to be productive and efficient, they also have motivations to protect their files and folders and to comply to regulations.
For businesses, setting up their own private file sharing services that work directly with their internal file servers is the best way to combine both the cloud productivity and the traditional security and compliance into one single solution.
