Don't Lead with Security

It's true that the right EFSS gives IT better control and visibility of endpoint data. But security is not why employees use or adopt file sharing apps. They've grown accustomed to using information to their advantage. They need file sharing to move big files, files of any type – from documents to movies, music, presentations, blueprints, schematics – to anyone, anywhere, on any device. Anything you offer them must support these needs and more.

File sharing is the bread and butter of business. That's why a variety of cloud tools – designed for file sharing across devices and people – have come to market with a considerable range in features and functionality, from those that cater to consumers to those geared to the most security-conscious enterprises.

Employees migrate to file sharing tools that work simply and fast – often selecting free or low-cost clouds with few security features. IT buyers seek tools that limit data vulnerability and security issues.

To balance usability and security – and convince employees to adopt an enterprise-grade file sync and share (EFSS) solution – keep your IT perspective on the back burner during evaluation with end users. Train your focus on end-user needs (but get the security features you need).

In this slideshow, Ann Fellman, director of enterprise product marketing at Code42, has identified eight tips that can help you woo employees to a better, more secure EFSS solution.
