Designed for Enterprise

Microsoft OneDrive has features like advance sharing, mobility and security like every other EFSS client. While OneDrive is a useful file sharing software, ShareFile is definitely a better OneDrive alternative for handling the needs of enterprises. With top-notch security and a powerful Admin system, ShareFile has been designed for enterprise.

Fits Every Organization

All organizational file sharing/collaboration requirements are not the same. They differ from industry to industry and from country to country – different data privacy laws/jurisdictions. ShareFile is not only a robust platform but also a flexible solution that can fit your organization file sharing/ collaboration work-flows perfectly.

on-premise/ IaaS

ShareFile can be hosted on-premise or on any IaaS (e.g. AWS, Azure). OneDrive is provided as a SaaS offering

End Point Backup

In addition to file sharing and sync, ShareFile offers endpoint backup. Onedrive doesn’t offer endpoint backup.

External File Sharing

ShareFile offers intuitive external file sharing capabilities to share files with partners, vendors and customers. Onedrive for Business offers complex, hard to manage external file sharing features.

Branding & Customization

ShareFile offers Unparalleled branding/customization (Change logo, change login screen, branded file sharing emails, Run on custom domain). Onedrive doesn’t offer custom branding capabilities.

Remote Wipe Feature

ShareFile supports remote wipe of files in client devices (PCs, Mobile apps). Onedrive doesn’t offer remote wipe or device management capabilities.

Metadata Management

ShareFile offers powerful metadata management capabilities to classify files using tags and custom meta data sets. OneDrive doesn’t offer meta data management

Better than Onedrive Enterprise

ShareFile offers manual retention,share deletion policies and manual classifications. OneDrive offers these features only in Enterprise E3 & E5 editions.

Ownership Transfer

ShareFile can transfer the file ownership to any user within the organization. OneDrive doesn’t offer this functionality.

Powerful Admin

ShareFile offers powerful administration features for system admins (Device dashboard, detailed audit log, reports and many more …)

Federated Search & GDPR

ShareFile offers federated search to support e-discovery and GDPR compliance. With OneDrive these features are available only in Enterprise editions.

Onedrive Alternative Client

ShareFile team is always looking to add features desired by enterprise users to assist them achieve better productivity.

For example, if you want anyone outside organization to share a file with you securely, you can share them a secure link to upload files without access to anything else.

With ShareFile you can enable syncing of files across Office 365. Many users wish to be able to share files from their personal Onedrive Account to OneDrive for Business Account.

While, OneDrive might still be thinking about it, ShareFile has already implemented this functionality.

You can do a lot more like, separate personal and business files within ShareFile, automatically shorten url’s, move files to another user account while deleting a particular user, get user side download statistics easily and even run ShareFile on a Linux client for Enterprise.
