EFSS is a critical feature, but not the whole product

We’ve always contended that EFSS is just a part of what our enterprise customers look for from us.

Our customers view file sync and share as a fundamental feature of our content collaboration network. They value our ability to deliver EFSS capabilities in the broader context of the business value the network provides as a whole. Our content collaboration network provides enterprise-independent workspaces to unlock the value of managed content, and facilitates the secure exchange of information between any and all business entities. It does so while enabling enterprises to apply policies and controls to deliver on security, governance, and compliance requirements. Intralinks delivers a platform with the flexibility of managing evolving data privacy regulations, comprehensive compliance tools to support the most regulated industries, and a frictionless user experience for getting work done securely between organizations. It supports critical, high-stakes business processes like an M&A transaction, regulatory reporting, or securely provisioning confidential legal documents to a mobile workforce. We give busy professionals the control over their sensitive information, providing the freedom to work confidently beyond enterprise boundaries.

EFSS will continue to play one key role in how we help our customers get business done across boundaries — whether those boundaries are geographical, legal or inter-departmental. We thank Forrester for its research on this space.
