Brief Description of Cloud File Sharing

Cloud-based file sharing saves the user to get involved with VPNs or file servers. Through cloud file sharing, a user can access files via any device including smartphones and tablets. This facility also reduces virtual private network (VPN) costs. When a file is stored on cloud file-sharing service the service control panel uploads the file on a cloud storage server and assign a unique URL to the file.

File owners then effectively share such URL with multiple users for file access and download, globally from any device anytime. Cloud file sharing is somehow discriminated for its security risks and compliance concerns when company data is stored on third-party providers without any legalized proceedings.
