Controlled External File Sharing

Common External File Sharing Challenges

File Access Limitations

Access Limitations

  • Provisioning external users for access to corporate systems is complex, limited or non-existent
  • Personal sharing solutions provide little control over identities of external accounts
Uncontrolled File Sharing

Uncontrolled Sharing

  • Personal sharing solutions lead to file duplication
  • No way to quickly expire or revoke access, after file is shared
Limited Visibility of Data

  • Unable to identify sensitive data in files before granting access
  • Lack of audit trails on files, folders, and user permissions
