Citrix ShareFile is a secure cloud collaboration platform and file sharing app suite that enables access to files stored across multiple repositories so users and clients can work efficiently from anywhere. Supports hybrid architectures — IT can choose to store their data on-premises, in the public cloud, or a combination of both.
ShareFile’s access methods include native mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows, as well as desktop tools and sync clients for Windows and MacOS. ShareFile also offers native email integrations in Microsoft Outlook and Gmail, and users can access files through several Office 365 integrations, including from native Microsoft Office apps and Microsoft Teams. With other integrations, such as ShareFile for Intune and ShareFile for MobileIron, sharing options and methods can be whitelisted/blacklisted.

Tight Security for file sharing & cloud collaboration:
- For Customer Managed StorageZones where data is stored on premises through CIFS support and the ShareFile StorageZone Controller, customers can provide encryption keys to leverage Microsoft crypto libraries. Will work in FIPS mode to enable FIPS 140-2 encryption. For metadata encryption, customers can leverage Restricted StorageZones to encrypt file metadata that is stored on the ShareFile control plane. For Citrix Managed StorageZones where data is stored in various cloud availability zones, customers can leverage Amazon KMS and manage their own keys including key rotation use cases. All encryption is performed at the file level.
- Multilayer Security: Granular controls protect encrypted data at rest (with AES), in transit (with SSL), and during access and use.
- Enterprise Key Management (EKM): Company-owned encryption keys allow organizations to safeguard data within private on-premises and cloud repositories.
- Information Rights Management (IRM): The authentication process follows the file itself, ensuring secure access to sensitive content only by intended recipients.
- Data Loss Prevention (DLP): helps organizations enforce regulated industry requirements, company governance policies, and security parameters for audit reporting and compliance.
