In addition to this milestone, ShareFile has unveiled updates to its popular desktop widget and web-based file sharing solutions with enhanced features and capabilities.

"ShareFile was founded to effectively serve a significant unmet market need for a secure, purpose-built file sharing solution designed specifically for business users," said Jesse Lipson, chief executive officer, ShareFile. "We're continuously looking to our customers for feedback in order to improve our products and deliver the tools and features that will not only meet, but exceed their business needs and expectations.

ShareFile's web-based solution is a secure tool that allows companies to transfer large business files easily, securely and professionally. The application now has a redesigned user interface that enables business professionals to complete more actions without leaving the page they are viewing, as well as a new menu system that makes advanced features more accessible.
The desktop widget, a Mac/PC/Linux compatible Adobe Air 2.0 application, allows users to drag-and-drop files or entire folders directly into the widget for distribution. Recent updates and enhancements to ShareFile's widget include a newly redesigned user interface, internet disconnection protection for file uploads, keyword searches for files, and the ability to download documents by dragging-and-dropping them directly from the widget to the desktop.
