In this research report, Gartner analyzes the emerging market for enterprise file synchronization and sharing products, and cloud-based services. These enable better productivity and collaboration for mobile workers, granting IT control with security and compliance capabilities.
Enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) offerings enable productivity and collaboration for mobile workers who use multiple devices, such as smartphones and media tablets, in addition to PCs.
Organizations must deploy EFSS services to secure enterprise information assets. Failure to provide these capabilities will subject organizations to information leakage threats caused by users who move data through uncontrolled personal cloud services.
