What is Citrix Content Collaboration?

Citrix Content Collaboration (formerly known as Citrix Sharefile) is a secure enterprise file sync and sharing service that meets the mobility and collaboration needs of users and the data security requirements of the enterprise. Content Collaboration enables users to send large documents by email, securely handle document transfers to third parties, and access a collaboration space from desktops or mobile devices. Content Collaboration provides users with a variety of ways to work, including a web-based interface, mobile clients, desktop tools, and integration with Microsoft Outlook.

The Content Collaboration product architecture consists of two key components: the Content Collaboration Control Plane and Citrix-managed or customer-managed Storage zones.

The Control Plane performs functions such as user authentication, access control, reporting and brokering. The Content Collaboration Storage Zones feature in Content Collaboration Enterprise allows IT administrators to choose where corporate data is stored.
