The Need for Enterprise-Grade File Sharing
and Synchronization
An Osterman Research White Paper

Cloud-based file-sharing and synchronization (FSS) tools are among the hottest applications used in the workplace, offered by market-leader Dropbox, Inc. and a large and growing number of vendors. These tools, which broadly can be classified as “consumer-focused” because they are typically deployed by individual users and not as part of a coordinated IT plan, offer tremendous usability. However, non-enterprise FSS tools can create a number of problems, including lack of IT oversight for corporate content, an inability to find and produce data on demand, malware infiltration and other problems.  This white paper was sponsored by Accellion, Email2 and YouSendIt – information about each vendor is offered at the end of the white paper.
