More Citrix ShareFile Pros →

"There's a lot there in terms of apps and features.""Using Office 365 has allowed us to go digital and onboard people seamlessly for working at home during the COVID pandemic.""I like Office 365's usability.""The most valuable feature is Microsoft Exchange.""Adaptable solution with a good interface. It's easy to set up and easy to use.""I like all of the features.""Quarantine email alerts to users to allow the email to their inbox (tricky but handy) - tricky if one doesn't have third-party email security, handy if one has got good third party email security).""The most valuable feature of Office 365 is that it has many solutions bundled together."

Cons
"DLP features are lacking and required because, especially with everyone working from home, security is now paramount when the data is on BYOD devices."

More Citrix ShareFile Cons →

"I started working a lot on Microsoft Teams and I find it a bit vast. It should be divided out a bit so that someone can use it for basic functionality, like audio, video, and calls. Then, if someone wants more advanced functionality for file sharing and team creation, and so on, they could use a separate app.""I rate the support of Office 365 a four out of five.""Integration with other platforms can be improved.""I'm not sure if there are areas of improvement. For us, it's working quite well.""As a private user, I do not appreciate the cloud features, but I doubt that this is something Microsoft would consider a feature request.""The integration with mobile services is not so good. It's coming, but they could improve a lot.""Office 365 could allow for smoother collaboration with other companies, which is the main reason we use it. The B2B connection is something we need, like global adverse lists between two tenants or multiple users. That's what we're missing at the moment.""We have found that, with Teams, if you are including one more person who is not in the company ecosystem, supposedly I'm inviting them as a guest in the chat. However, when I do that, I can't share files."

  • More Citrix ShareFile Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is high and has actually caused us to limit the number of licenses we purchase due to budgeting."

  • "We have a license to use this solution. We have an E3 license which covers many different solutions."
  • "I would rate the solution 3 out of 5 for the price. I think Microsoft presents a good solution concerning the price."
  • "For the moment, we are paying on a monthly basis because we are still adapting the support and how we want to proceed. I think we will move to paying for the annual license."
