Citrix ShareFile

ShareFile works very well for sending encrypted attachments through the Outlook app. The one-click feature makes it intuitive for users. There are two scenarios I can think of where it wouldn't fit as well. If you have a significant user base who does not use the Outlook app ShareFile may be harder to implement as users would have to go to the web portal. Additionally, the Outlook app has an automated feature where it will encrypt files over a certain size. This inconsistency can annoy some users but that will be more of a deployment detail.

Nextcloud

Nextcloud is well suited in any collaboration scenario where users wants to share comments and resources as well as organize events or work together.
It is also very well suited for non-profit organizations as it is free to use and very simple even for non-tech users.
I can't imagine scenarios where it might not be appropriate as running requirements are minimal (php, mysql) so even a single user could find benefit to use it as an alternative for basic icloud or gmail use (files with desktop and mobile clients, calendar and address book).

Pros

Citrix ShareFile

  • Authenticated electronic document signatures--self-signing, and sending out for signatures. This is a robust feature that also allows for additional information to be added to documents being sent for signatures, such as dates, notes, and items omitted but needed.
  • Encrypted emails through ShareFile, Citrix apps for Outlook, Gmail, and Mac email systems. Encrypted email messages cannot be cut/pasted, nor forwarded without encryption. If only the attachments need to be encrypted, the email message can be unencrypted. Also, two options for securely opening an encrypted email (one with less credentials, one with more).

Nextcloud

  • File sharing (internal, public or federated).
  • One software, many activities (files, address book, calendar, chat, edit, email) ...
  • Groupware, sharing between users or groups is really easy and finely controlled.
  • Integrations and many apps.

Cons

Citrix ShareFile

  • Software can close or quit all on its own sometimes.
  • The password reset can be a pain with all the "choose a picture" steps to prove you are not a robot.
  • I sometimes see issues with synchronizing long file paths and special characters.

The cost is fair and the program does what it has promised to do. Customer service is attentive. I'm not aware of any better-sounding file sharing systems out there that would tempt us to discontinue ShareFile.

ShareFile is so easy to use I was able to download all of my projects files and have them set up to sync before my supervisor could even come over to explain the process to me. It is a neatly organized and intuitive software that allows even the less tech-savvy to become power users.

Easy to use, easy to integrate with Outlook. I only gave it a 9 because I have found that sometimes it does not play nicely with Outlook and can slow it down. But, when that happens (not frequent), I restart Outlook and all is well again

We find that tickets circle around Level 1 techs and response time is slow as Australia is not in a great time zone compared to their support team. When escalated to Level 2 and 3, sometimes issues get resolved but we find many times that our environment is blamed and they do not always take responsibility of their platform. We have also sometimes had to escalate issues to our local technical and sales reps to see any progress on tickets.

I never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix ShareFile

Dropbox was sufficient, but it required downloading Adobe Acrobat. And I'll tell you this - many people in our organization aren't the best with installing the 'right' software (i.e., they do a Google search, click a link, click the wrong download button and install some other nonsense like a toolbar or what have you) and then it has caused more issues than are needed. ShareFile is plug & play.

Nextcloud

Even excluding the budget and privacy concerns, we selected Nextcloud for its simplicity of use and the UI is very clear.
It just does what it is supposed to do.
  • No license.
  • Much, much ease of use.
  • Not opening several windows.
  • No un-useful services.
  • No automatic update.
  • Control over data.
  • Open-source software.
  • Integrations.

Return on Investment

Citrix ShareFile

  • POSITIVE IMPACT: Considering the process we were using prior to ShareFile (FTP and WinZip), our ROI was almost immediate. ShareFile took the complexity out of the process and gave us control and audits over our file collaboration functions.
  • POSITIVE IMPACT: We all know that a happy user is soo much better than an unhappy one. I have approximately 20 users at this time and they have provided nothing but POSITIVE remarks about how simple and fast it is to use.
  • POSITIVE IMPACT: Centralized management as an IT Manager is paramount. ShareFile is easy to manage and deploy to end users. I would say it's as close to effortless as it can possibly be.

Nextcloud

  • We do not spend money on software license (unlike Office 365).
  • Very simple maintenance and upgrading.
  • Very simple backup and restore.
