This Magic Quadrant represents a snapshot of the Enterprise File Synchronisation and Sharing (EFSS) market, as of July 2015. The Magic Quadrant for EFSS solutions is intended to help CIOs and business and IT leaders that are developing their EFSS strategies to assess the right products or services to support them.
Enterprise file synchronisation and sharing (EFSS) refers to a range of on-premises or cloud-based capabilities that enables individuals to synchronise and share documents, photos, videos and files across mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and PCs. Sharing can happen between people (for example, partners and customers) within or outside the organisation, or on a mobile device, as data sharing among apps. Access to files in enterprise repositories (such as file servers and content platforms) from mobile devices or remote PCs extends user productivity and collaboration to modern use cases. Security and collaboration support are critical aspects for enterprises to adopt EFSS.
