I have both used the product, as well as recommended [...] and implemented it at other companies, for file storage and sharing across multiple departments (enterprise-wide). Needed a simple to use, yet reliable way to track, share and control documentation without needing staff dedicated to just the care and feeding of the system.

Sharefile is mostly used by the two largest departments in our company...Preconstruction and Operations. We use it in lieu of running/hosting an FTP site. Its main purpose in context is to host files we would like to share and collaborate with people outside our organization. The Precon department uses it to host files for bids and if we win the job the Sharefile site moves to the Op's department to share files for the rest of the project. It solves the issue of trying to share large files outside of our company. We also use Sharefile's Enterprise capability of making internal based files available to our remote employees in a mobile app from Sharefile.

We use Citrix ShareFile internally as our main data repository. All company-related documents are stored in a strict file and folder convention with strict policies and controls around access, control, and editing rights. We use both a local storage zone and a Citrix Cloud hosted zone as our primary platform is running off Citrix. The Cloud hosted element is utilized to take advantage of features such as cloud-based document viewing and editing. Also, we use rightsignature as our electronic signature platform which is tightly integrated with ShareFile. We enjoy the enterprise level features available to administrators and the audit reports. The Citrix Files app is generally used and for some customers we utilise the Sync app on a local file server, map the drive to power users. We find that copying large numbers of files is quite slow. We have also found that deep and complicated folder structures and long filenames greatly affects the performance negatively.

Citrix ShareFile is being used across the whole organization. We use it to satisfy our cloud storage needs. We use it for backup of ongoing course builds and to transfer material to be proofed by someone else at Aerolearn.

I use it kind of like Dropbox, as a place to securely store clients' tax files and tax returns. I love that I can easily invite clients to set up an account and grant them access to just their specific folder. It is wonderful that it is both cloud-based and desktop-based, like Dropbox and they auto-sync generally pretty seamlessly. This works great for being able to password protect sensitive documents, UNLIKE Dropbox.

We are a remote team that uses Citrix ShareFile as our "filing cabinet" for all our documents and shared client work. We also use it as a storehouse for our internal training, marketing, and other commonly used documents.

ShareFile was used for encrypted file sharing between clients. One of the biggest concerns in our industry was sending information that contains PII through email. ShareFile offered a way to both sends files through an encrypted portal as well as sending emails through the same portal. ShareFile was implemented throughout our organization as the go-to product for these situations.

We use Citrix ShareFile for all users for our cloud data storage needs. This software allows us to store our information securely and with backups where everyone can access it. We use the sync tool, the virtual drive and the Outlook add-in for data transfer. We do not need to house the data all on our own at a physical location.

The CEO and all contractors are users. Contractors include psychiatric rehab program (PRP) service directors, their PRP supervisor, and myself--the compliance officer (I am also one of two ShareFile administrators for our online account). As an accredited and state-licensed service provider with requirements to keep regular HIPAA-compliant client records and reports, we chose ShareFile because our needs for doing so were best met out of all the electronic medical records SaaS companies that we reviewed. We are a very small company, we currently don't offer psychiatric services, so we pretty much needed an a la carte SaaS that we could customize for record keeping, have robust encryption across other online platforms, and would offer secure authenticated electronic signing capabilities. We don't do our own billing, which was another feature we didn't need.

We use ShareFile as global warehousing and share for internal files regarding active company projects and archival information that may be needed at a later time. Being that it can be accessed from anywhere, and we have staff in three states it is a quick and easy solution for sharing files and projects across all of our teams.

Citrix ShareFile is very easy to use with clients. Setting it up was pretty straightforward as long as you read the proper way of setup. It can get complex but depends on what features and how much you want to integrate it. This is normal with any products that offers many services and different ways of integration.

Sharing files with clients is very straightforward, easy, and users did not require training nor did the clients (ones receiving the files).
I do think the price could be on the steep side. If Citrix drops it down then they could have more customers as it is very practical.

We use ShareFile for all of our field teams to be able to easily access the project documents while they are on site throughout our area of operations. Using ShareFile has helped our "out of the office groups" have access to all their necessary project documents while having them backed up, all without having to wait for long download times from remote servers. It also allowed our teams to share pertinent information with our subcontractors as needed while still keeping them safe from tampering.

Citrix ShareFile is used by my law firm to send and receive large-sized documents (over 5 megabytes). It offers the ability to securely send or receive the documents in an encrypted format. I particularly find that being able to offer a client the ability to send a large file without the client belonging to a file sharing service to be helpful. And my clients are comfortable knowing that the files are sent securely.

We utilize Citrix ShareFile mainly to share files across different firms. We are commercial real estate owners, and we need to work with floor plans every day. We work with architectural firms and brokerage firms that both need daily access to our floor plans, and we need a way for architects to provide us with our most up-to-date floor plans. This is a way for different firms to share files without us giving access to our servers. Secondarily, we use it for emailing large files or for maintaining some large marketing materials.

The ShareFile is used internally in several departments of our company, mainly the sales and marketing since we have branches in different cities and we needed that the officials were able to work remotely in the same project. A safe form from the Citrix ShareFile fits perfectly into it, and with it, officials in different places can work together on the same project. ShareFile helped to cover the distance in a single detail.

On the product side, we use ShareFile to upload documentation to support our physical products (i.e., web content, FAQs, dimensions, etc. for reference on our website).

On the marketing side, we use ShareFile to upload imagery used for the website and for email campaigns. It's an easy way for us to collaborate on projects, annotate files, access those files anywhere, and keep a running log of what our marketing efforts are.

We use Sharefile for several different functions. One of the most important is HIPAA compliant file reception from our customers which are medical clinics. It's easy to use and customers have never had an issue delivering things to us. One of the other important features is that it is easy to send large files to bypass email limits that are imposed by many IT departments.

ShareFile is used by a subset of our users. However, it is not restricted to any one department. Predominantly, ShareFile is used by those employees who need to access their data files wherever they might have internet access. We first began looking at ShareFile to provide a HIPAA compliant method of seamlessly accessing our documents and spreadsheets while at home or on the road.

The entire organization uses ShareFile. It addresses three distinct organizational needs:
  1. The ability to share large files by link or by the document.
  2. The documents shared can be password protected.
  3. The ability to electronically sign documents and to send them to third parties for countersignature.

We use ShareFile as a solution for all our storage both internal and external. It is really nice because clients can upload their documents directly to their files and we can share documents that are secured in various ways. I found it really effective and secure to send clients or their advisors a link to their files with an expiration date. This ensures we were security compliant and reduced the risk of cyber hacking.

Citrix ShareFile is has been an incredible asset to our marketing department. We needed to find a better way to work with our remote partners without having to worry about security. Citrix offers secure file sharing and it allows numerous members and contractors to collaborate on projects without having to worry about being in the same room! The customized workflows keep us organized but for us, the biggest win is the ability to collaborate on content through the Mircosoft Outlook integration.

Citrix Files (formerly ShareFile) is probably one of the best storage services around. It has strong security that maintains PICs compliance and has one of the fastest sharing platforms around. This was one of the last things we implemented for a completely cloud-based office environment and couldn’t be happier.

It's being used by the finance departments and it's used in IT. Customers can send users secure files in a ShareFile. Our staff gets notified and is able to download the files. It's a great way to send large files securely. We can place links in our email auto signature and on our website so our customers can send files to us.

At our financial institution we use Citrix ShareFile to send and receive important documents from our customers that contain confidential information. This secure way of transferring data is a very useful tool. Our IT department manages the administration part of the cloud based software. However, its used all across our organization.

We are an AS9100 company that must conform to the NIST 800-171 and the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement Clause 252.204-7012 due to doing business with the US Government. Citrix ShareFile is being used by our organization to securely transfer engineering data from our engineers, project managers and estimators to our vendors and customers. Due to the potentially sensitive nature of CUI (Controlled Unclassified Information), it is required for us to safeguard the information and know where it has been and where it went.
