Great product during my trial

Tester

Pros

I love this product and the ability to connect via mobile. I was a trial tester for this version. We used Accellion as our Large File FTP, and Kiteworks was really great.

Cons

Our security wouldn't allow Kiteworks. We had to keep accellion as our primary FTP even though we couldn't ever get the Java install to work.

Great tool

Pros

This is a nice tool to share your files and documents with different teams and people around the globe in few seconds.

Cons

Being associated with drop box and icloud people tend not to use this much as those are way better than this.

Integration with DropBox keeps files Syncd

Good tool to share secure files and integrate with Dropbox tool

Pros

Kiteworks helps sharing files among various systems in a secure way. It has good integration with DropBox which makes our life easier. I use this for our clients and help them sharing the important files across various locations.

Kiteworks works well in terms of functionality. The user experience needs work as sometimes I get lost while managing files. But can find by spending a little bit time.

All About Security

Kiteworks is more about working within than sharing out and collaboration. There's a large focus on security here which is great for sharing private files... but this is difficult to deal with if you're trying to work with anyone beyond your company.. Not recommended for personal use or anyone that works collaboratively.

Pros

Security.

Cons

Very Niche with what it offers.
Great for inside files, not so great with sharing beyond the inside.

Easy to use and Clean interface

Pros

Great application for managing the files and sharing them with your friends. It helps with connecting third-party apps and provide functionality to integrated documents.
Very easy to use and clean interface helps with managing each and every functionality easily.

Cons

Recovering files from trash would be helpful if that feature can be built in. All other features looks good.

A replacement for Dropbox?

Pros

I like Kiteworks better than Dropbox in a number of ways. Kiteworks has a great Web UI to manage the files. The files can be easily shared with others.
It also has a great Web Admin tool to manage the users.

Cons

Need a good working Mobile Apps, as I use my mobile apps frequently. So it would be easy to manage pictures and docs if I get a Mobil App installed for Android.

Extra storage backup software

Pros

Kiteworks is moving in the right direction with providing the features of keeping backups online. It provides extra storage as needed to keep your files online.
We have started using it for our customer shared files and it seems a good option to continue with.

Cons

Single sign-on can be added to Kiteworks. if i can use my Gmail login to sign in to this tool, that would be awesome! If they can add a free version with basic features or some limitations, it would be great and most people can start using it then.

Collaborative tool to share docs with your Business people

Pros

Our organization recently started using this software. It has been working well and collaboration seems good. We have been trying out if this tool can work alongside with our Google Apps accounts and if file sharing can be better. By now everything seems good as we expected.

Cons

A chat feature would be good to collaborate with my team. A few other tools can gives ability to chat with people (With whom you share files). it would be good if Kiteworks can get that feature as well.

Online, Secure, Backup: Kiteworks!

Pros

It's Online. It's Secure. It's good for backups! That's what I have been looking for before I sign up for KiteWorks. Kiteworks provides all features of a cloud based file management tool. It has good interface to play with and its quick to learn as well. Happy using it so far.

Cons

Collaboration can be improved. When it comes to share the files with friends, the option exists but can be improved on how we share it.
