We are pleased to announce that Workshare has been named as a Market Challenger in the Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting an Enterprise File Sync and Share Product, 2014–2015 report!

Ovum recognized that Workshare Connect provides the features that matter most to end users, including file synchronization and sharing, collaboration and social.

The catalyst for the Ovum Decision Matrix was Ovum’s global study of 5,187 full-time employees, which, found that 89% of those that use file sync and share technology at work are using at least one consumer product, and 29% are using three or more consumer and/or commercial products. This lack of control over company data is obviously concerning for IT departments and businesses alike, and mirrors concerns that Workshare uncovered in our own research. The Ovum Decision Matrix analyses the top 19 enterprise alternatives in the space to provide businesses with a detailed view of the market to help regain control.

Richard Edwards, Principal Analyst of Enterprise ICT at Ovum and author of the report, commented: “Enterprise file sync and share is about so much more than the phrase suggests. It is about getting work done wherever you are and with whomever you are working; using any device suitable or available to read, review, author, or correct a document.”

“Workshare has a stronghold in business sectors that have a particular focus on document-centric processes. Workshare Connect is a good all-rounder from an enterprise file sync and share perspective, and future iterations of the product are sure to challenge the market leaders group.”

Anthony Foy, CEO at Workshare, commented: “Being recognized as a challenger by Ovum is a fantastic endorsement of Workshare Connect. It confirms our ability to execute on our vision of building secure collaboration applications that meet both user and compliance requirements for security-aware businesses.”
