10 Secure File Sharing Options and Tips [Infographic]

The following content has been submitted on behalf of Panda Security.

Many businesses, large and small alike, have gone paperless. What does it mean exactly to go paperless? Because technology is so prevalent and accessible, many companies choose to exchange and archive information in the cloud, or digitally.

The cloud is made up of a multitude of Internet-based services, such as Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. These services allow trading and storage of data simply through the Internet. This means that multiple people can edit one document at a time. Even more conveniently, the same document can be opened from any computer with an Internet connection.

So, why are corporations making the switch to online file sharing?

A benefit of file sharing is its ability to centralize your company’s data. The juvenile game “Telephone” demonstrates the importance of streamlining communication. In the game, children sit in a circle or a long line. The first person picks a word or phrase and whispers it to the person adjacent them. This continues until the last person has to say it aloud. Often, the initial phrase has devolved into something completely different through small variations in each whisper.

Like the game, the flow of communication in the workplace can easily be twisted or misunderstood as it travels from person to person. Storing information digitally mitigates these communication errors because employees can access the same data — they don’t have to rely on coworkers to relay the information.

If you’re interested in learning more about file sharing, Panda Security has put together 10 secure file sharing options and tips. Scroll through the infographic below to discover file sharing advantages, risks, and services. Read more of this post
