SharePoint is widely used internally for collaboration, but when it comes to exchanging information with external partners and third parties, it can involve difficult ad hoc workarounds due to firewall limitations and security.
With Hightail for Sharepoint, you can share project files of any size from directly within your Sharepoint platform. It allows you to send files and folders in an email-like experience, using the standard Hightail security precautions.
Security and Tracking
As is one of the key features of Hightail, users have the ability to enforce controls on their shared content so they know who is accessing their files and when. These controls include password protection, file expiration, verify recipient identity and return receipt. By clicking on Track, users can see their download history for a specific file they sent – e.g. who downloaded it, when was it downloaded, etc.
Bottom line? We know it is difficult to share files outside of Sharepoint, and our goal is to extend collaboration. Your company already has the software, so let Hightail help you maximize the experience.
