Former SpaceX CIO and Broadcom executive Ken Venner joins external file sharing & content collaboration technology innovator e-Share as President and Chief Product Officer. The announcement was made by Nicholas Stamos, CEO.

Before SpaceX Ken spent 12 years scaling Broadcom from $400M in revenue to $8.6B as their CIO and SVP of Corporate Services. At SpaceX and Broadcom, Ken had responsibility for IT strategy, planning and cybersecurity for both corporate and customer initiatives with a focus of making “IT Like Air”.

His innovative thinking and vision will inform our strategic direction, helping us increase the market share and profitability of e-Share,” said Stamos.

Ken’s track record of scaling organizations and building simple to use technology solutions that streamline organizations will power e-Share’s plans for massive growth. He will also be instrumental in expanding the company’s operations, development and implementation delivery teams.

“I’m very excited to join the e-Share team. As a founding investor, and an active user of their product, I am thrilled to be working with the team to drive the future direction of our offering. In these challenging times, the need for a secure, easy to use collaboration solution, that enables companies to share information in a compliant way with customers, suppliers and business partners, puts e-Share in a perfect position to deliver highly differentiated solutions to the market.” said Venner.

Portal Updates, Sharepoint Bot Support, OpenID Tweaks

e-Share Blog

This week, e-Share updated our client web portal, removing our venerable “Collaboration Management” navigation option and replacing it with direct links to “My Shares” and “Shared With Me”.

Here’s a screen shot from our alter-ego, Bank2Trust – because our service is always re-branded:

B2T MS updated

Additionally, the portal now highlights shares that will expire in 3 or fewer business days. e-Share users can access that here. In the near future we’ll add an option to allow you to receive notification via email as well.

Now, when accessing shared content via the new design, secure conversations can now be sorted by date or conversation. You can also size the conversation pane however you’d like:

BT SC updated

The account settings page has also been updated. Among other things, the “Notifications” tab has been removed, and the “Notifications” toggle option is now located under “Preferences”.

B2T - Settings updated

We also added support to our External Collaboration Bot so it can share content from SharePoint, if you use that as the storage mechanism for Teams.

e-Share - Trusted share

You can optionally copy SharePoint content to OneDrive prior to sharing. This allows you to send a snapshot of a document to an external recipient, and continue internal collaboration (and updates) to the internal copy.

We also made a number of updates to our OpenID support, going directly to the login provider instead of pausing at our re-branded portal page.

Users are taken directly to the web portal after logging in.

If you have questions about any of these updates, please send us a comment. Thanks.

Edit Share Subject, View Office Docs Online, Private Conversation Mode

e-Share Blog

This week, e-Share’s Client Web Portal (CWP) added three new features. First, you can now edit share subjects directly from the My Shares menu:

e-Share - Rename

Second, when you share a Microsoft Office document and give the recipient download rights, we automatically offer to preview it using Office online:

e-Share - View Office Online

Finally, when creating a Trusted Share, you now have the option to allow the recipient to reply, and optionally to restrict replies so that only the owner and recipient can see them. (In our current, default configuration, all recipients can see everything.)

e-Share - TS conversation
