Why FileCloud is the Best Citrix ShareFile Alternative?

Best ShareFile Alternative

Looking for the top ShareFile alternative? Look no further. Citrix ShareFile is an EFSS solution where you can securely store, send and sync files. It is a good file-sharing program but an expensive one. FileCloud provides the same set of features as Citrix ShareFile and much more at a much lower cost. FileCloud focuses on security, reliability, ease of use and cost, making FileCloud a similar but better among alternatives to ShareFile.

Fits Your Organization Workflows

FileCloud easily fits all organizational needs with seamless capabilities and ease of use. FileCloud offers flexibility and customization to enterprise workflows, making FileCloud an asset to your enterprise. You can use a company logo, custom login screens and (best of all!) run FileCloud on your custom domain. Admins can control user groups, control file/folder access, and assign password protected permissions,  or restrictions whenever required.

Unparalleled ROI With FileCloud

Compared to Citrix ShareFile alternatives, ROI (return on investment) with FileCloud is very high since we offer all Citrix ShareFile features along with many more enterprise sharing benefits while still being affordable. You can self-host FileCloud on-premise for seamless secure access, but you cannot setup Citrix ShareFile on-premise. FileCloud has server sync function without restrictions, whereas the Citrix ShareFile Enterprise Sync Manager has already been deprecated.

FileCloud Received Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Distinction the third consecutive time! 92% of our customers are willing to recommend us.

Check Detailed Feature Comparison Below Between ShareFile and FileCloud

For users looking to opt ShareFile for the Enterprise Sync, (which will be fully deprecated as of October 31, 2019, and and will no longer function for customers) will need to look for another solution which offers a solution to sync two folders on a file server. FileCloud’s ServerSync converts your Windows file servers into a powerful enterprise file sharing, sync platform. ServerSync maintains copy of files and permissions between the cloud and on-premises storage and enables a hybrid cloud approach that allows traditional LAN access when on-premise, and cloud access when off-site or remote.
