Multi-User Business Account Comparison

Businesses that work in a collaborative environment will often need multi-user accounts, where typically there is an admin, and a number of end-users. Even if collaboration between end-users is not a requisite, the need remains for multiple users to have secure file sharing capabilities such as encryption & anti-virus.

Again, just like in the previous comparison, what is offered by various file sharing sites can differ wildly with some cutting corners, some not taking security as seriously as they should do. There are also additional features such as being able to receive files and customization for brand consistency, provided by some, including us.
