Overall Satisfaction with Citrix ShareFile

We utilize Citrix Sharefile by either uploading or download important, confidential or super large files from our vendors, consultants, legal teams, internal teams (across geographic and lines of businesses). It serves as a secure way of downloading/uploading information and addresses this specific business need (versus emailing PDFs which may not fit, sending our CDs which takes time, or sending print outs the old fashion way).

Pros

  • User interface - setting up log-in is not hard
  • Email alerts for tracking purposes
  • Download is seemless

Cons

  • Naming convention (a lot of the files I download just states File.zip which is generic)
  • Single log-in function
  • Easier drag and drop of file functions
  • Time - Much faster than obtaining files the old fashion way
  • Organized - Know when things are being downloaded
  • Email alerts - Good interface
I have only used Google Drive for personal use for uploading and downloading information and files. ShareFile is already a leader in this space (versus smartstreet).
Specific scenarios where Citrix Sharefile is well suited: I would say that the best scenarios are when you have large Adobe PDF files that you can't easily email out because of file size, or annual compliance documents that is confidential. The ease of use (assuming no internal firewall) allows items to be downloaded pretty quickly.

Less Appropriate: Obviously, wet signature folks.
