Is EFSS an IT or a LoB Concern? [42588]
Cloud enterprise file sync

Tanu Sood writes, "Cloud enterprise file sync and share solutions serve a critical business need. A digital enterprise is an anytime, anyplace workplace requiring not just employees but the authorized ecosystem access to the right information at any time from anywhere on any device.
