External File Sharing & File-Based
Workflow Automation With O365
e-Share builds upon O365, providing simple, secure and branded file sharing and workflow automation involving clients, partners and suppliers
While Microsoft 0365 has become the workflow and collaboration tool of choice, many organizations are still using Box, Dropbox, ShareFile, SFTP or some other point solution for their external file sharing. With e-Share, organizations can retire these costly and complex point solutions, moving their users and use cases onto O365.
This greatly improves user productivity, lowers IT costs, increases client satisfaction, and makes sweeping digital transformation of file-based workflows practical through the secure, collaborative sharing of essential sensitive data with customers, suppliers and partners.
No Copying of Files In Order to Share Them
e-Share natively uses your existing cloud file storage for all file sharing: OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Box, Dropbox & Google Drive. This eliminates the copying of files into ‘yet another storage system’ that introduces version confusion, necessitates additional security and auditing, and complicates data discovery, retention and legal hold processes.
Share Files Using the Apps You are Already Familiar With
Users can share files using the Teams, Outlook and Office apps and workflows they are already familiar with. This improves user productivity, creates instant time-to-value, and nearly eliminates change management. It also allows users to self-serve more of their file sharing needs, e.g. large and bulk file sharing otherwise done via SFTP.
Strengthen Your Brand Reputation and Build Trust
Your brand reputation and trust relationship with your clients, partners and suppliers is all important. Strengthen both by presenting a totally branded UX when you share files. This also eliminates the recipient link blocking that is common with Box, Dropbox, Google and Microsoft when sharing files into highly security conscious organizations and with parties in China.
Unique Features to Improve the Productivity of Your File Sharing
e-Share was purpose built for external file sharing, with features not combined elsewhere. For example, files can be shared into your organization, recipients can be allowed to invite others to access a shared file/folder, multiple users can co-manage a Virtual Data Room build upon SharePoint Online, and files can be shared with clients from a group email address.
Build Upon Your Existing Security Policies & Tools
Whether Azure AD security groups, Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) sensitivity labels, SharePoint site labels, or 3rd party DLP systems, e-Share consumes your existing policies and integrates with your existing DLP tools so that sensitive files are only shared with approved parties with the least privileges to meet the business need.
Streamline External File Delivery, Collection and Validation
e-Share provides app connectors, built-in file validation, robust APIs and a simple, branded UX that allow file-based workflows involving external parties to be automated to reduce costs, improve quality, raise productivity and improve client satisfaction. Use cases range from delivering fund performance statements to collecting and validating compliance reports.
