Consumerization of IT has been instrumental in driving user adoption of consumer-style cloud-based file-sharing services, however the use of these services presents serious security challenges. Additionally, tools like FTP are failing users, compelling organizations to look for an IT-managed service that can deliver on users’ mobility, data sharing and collaboration requirements while giving IT teams the management and control they expect.
ShareFile is a secure and robust enterprise follow-me data solution that enables IT to meet the mobility and collaboration needs of all users. Unlike consumer-style file sync and sharing tools, ShareFile provides management and control functionality that allows IT to deliver a secure service and store enterprise data in the optimal locations to meet corporate data policies and unique compliance requirements.
This whitepaper provides a technical overview of how ShareFile can be provisioned on customer managed, Microsoft Azure cloud storage service.
