How Compliance Drives SMB IT Transformation: The Impact of Citrix ShareFile Cloud for Healthcare on Mission Benefits
This IDC Buyer Case Study is based on a conversation IDC had with Matthew Sohn, founder and CEO of Mission Benefits, a Sunnyvale-based provider of employee benefits and health insurance advisory services to California-based SMBs and nonprofits. The discussion centered on the two-year-old transformation undertaken by Mission Benefits as it sought to streamline its core business operations through the use of Citrix's cloud file sharing solution ShareFile.
Mission Benefits is a microbusiness, with a staff of 10 that includes a sales force and headquarters staff. Sohn sought to further streamline Mission Benefits' operations with a cloud-based solution that could harness the capabilities of on-demand access to critical client files and also offer the security and required industry compliance necessary to protect confidential client personal and medical data, all within an efficient document management system.
This Buyer Case Study illustrates how it is not enough for businesses to utilize broad consumer or enterprise file sharing capabilities that do not meet industry-specific compliancy and legal requirements. Furthermore, a key conclusion of this study is how SMBs can operate similarly to (and better compete with) much larger organizations when utilizing scalable, secure, and compliant cloud file sharing services like Citrix ShareFile.
