Citrix gains title as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing

Citrix has announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned the company in the leaders quadrant of the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS)1 report. The report evaluates Citrix ShareFile®, a secure file sync and sharing service that meets the mobility and collaboration needs of users and the data security requirements of enterprises. This follows the company’s recent placement by Gartner in the leaders quadrant of the 2014 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Suites2report.

According to Gartner, “leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand. They have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market positions as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus and invest in their offerings to lead the market and affect its overall direction. Leaders can be the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a significant, satisfied customer base and enjoy high visibility in the market. Their size and maturity enable them to remain viable under changing market conditions.”

With ShareFile, customers have the flexibility to choose where their data is stored – in the cloud, on premises, or a mix of both – making it a popular solution among global organizations. In fact, the majority of enterprise customers are opting for a combination of cloud and on-premises deployments over cloud-only deployments to support data sovereignty, compliance and performance needs. ShareFile also expands the types of data users can open and edit on the go. It unifies access to enterprise content management systems from mobile devices, making it easier to swiftly and securely take care of business from anywhere. It can also connect to users’ personal cloud storage accounts, enabling IT to bring corporate data from personal accounts into ShareFile for secure management.

ShareFile is a key component of Citrix Workspace Suite™, the market leading mobile workspace solution. Citrix Workspace Suite is the only complete solution for the secure delivery and management of mobile, web, SaaS and Windows apps, including email and collaboration, data and devices over any network from any cloud. ShareFile is also an integral part of Citrix XenMobile®, a full EMM solution uniquely delivering the best of mobile device management, mobile application management and enterprise-grade productivity apps.

We believe it validates that Citrix is a strong, comprehensive option for those considering enterprise-wide file synchronization and sharing deployments as well as EMM and mobile workspace investments. In fact, we’re seeing an increasing number of organizations choosing integrated solutions over standalone EFSS offerings as they recognize the value of deploying a complete mobile solution.
