The selection process for an enterprise-ready, secure file sync and share solution can often be stressful. But the end result offers big rewards when the right solution is selected, implemented and launched—ultimately increasing productivity for end users.

Watch and hear Enterprise Strategy Group senior analyst Terri McClure discuss:

  • Why users violate IT policies by using rogue file sync and share applications and the risks associated with these consumer-grade tools
  • The questions IT buyers should ask when evaluating an enterprise-ready, file sync and share solution for their organization
  • How file sync and share tools fit in to today’s enterprise and drive user productivity
  • How IT can use user adoption as a metric of success

Asking the right questions up front is critical when purchasing a file sync and share solution that will properly balance end user’s productivity and ease-of-use needs with IT’s data security and control requirements.

Gaining user adoption of an IT-approved solution is uniquely difficult for file sync and share products—because it will have to unseat an incumbent solution; the availability and use of consumer-grade file-sharing tools is already pervasive in the enterprise. And, getting users to adopt the new solution can be a challenge as well.
