Media & Entertainment Industry

DirectShare delivers rapid file-share and collaboration for media and entertainment professionals. DirectShare eliminates upload times, without the workflow-killing wait time associated with loading large media files for sharing and artist collaboration. Users simply save media files, and internal collaborators can access instantly via a shared link, preserving the creative flow for artists and saving time and money that is often spent waiting for data to be moved around. Collaboration with outside partners and customers is accelerated by 10x as the secure solution eliminates the need for VPN and other slow solutions for secure sharing. The metadata-only strategy at the core of DirectCFS also enables the rapid transfer of final creative to media outlets and publishers, public relations representatives and press. This feature is especially useful in deadline-driven environments such as newsrooms or live events.

Financial Services

Microseconds mean millions for financial services providers, while compliance restrictions and the sensitivity of the financial data being exchanged demand the highest level of security. Traditional file share solutions are prohibitively slow for this industry, and cloud storage solutions do not support compliance requirements, but the secure collaboration platform offered by DirectShare ensures rapid file transfers while meeting regulatory standards – because data security remains under control of your organization’s IT department.

Legal Services

The legal profession is a peculiar beast – attorneys working with contracts could have vastly different relationships to their documentation than those working in litigation. Yet as compliance and discovery standards demand digitization and retention of all legal documents, DirectShare delivers a simple solution for collaboration that does not disrupt the workflow of these busy professionals, add capital expenditure to what firms have already invested in their practices, or cause them to run afoul of regulatory bodies. It does so while maintaining the strictest data control for the firms and their clientele.

Education and Non-profits

Nonprofit organizations share many of the same needs as large, distributed enterprises: they are global with a workforce that demands always-on access to their important, often sensitive files. Nonprofits, however, face budget constraints with which for-profit entities do not grapple, while often dealing with similar sets of regulatory requirements for their data. This unfortunate reality often means juggling resources to keep their IT departments up and running while struggling to see through their mission. DirectShare offers a simple solution with significantly lower capital and operational expenditures compared to other cloud providers, without hidden overhead that can come with hiring on consultants and additional tools to complete a lengthy data migration. In addition, non-profits further benefit from guest access features during elastic seasonal periods, allowing them to add workforce volunteers to the platform free of additional licensing fees. DirectShare also offers deep discounts to organizations that are out doing good in the world.


Sensitive healthcare data undergoing ongoing digitization has provided a playground for data thieves eager to exploit any and all security vulnerabilities to gain access to this highly valuable personal information. In addition, when lives could literally hang in the balance and seconds matter, collaboration between medical professionals at multiple locations is exponentially faster and simplified without technical or security restrictions. The DirectShare solution delivers control back to IT experts in the healthcare space, ensuring that HIPAA and other regulatory standards of the healthcare industry are met by experts within those organizations – not by third party providers of online storage. The DirectShare platform also simplifies workflow for healthcare providers, removing many steps associated with the manual transfer of sensitive healthcare information from one device to another via disk- or flash-based storage media.

Managed Services Providers

Enterprise organizations, legal firms, professional services providers, government and many other verticals are focusing on their core competencies and entrusting managed services providers to optimize their back office tasks for everything from printing to to building maintenance to reception. But in the age of the global workforce, with such practices as hoteling becoming commonplace for the largest organizations, file transfer and collaboration has not kept up. With DirectShare, managed services providers can deliver a fast, efficient, totally secure user file transfer and collaboration platform to their clients. In addition, DirectShare allows users to create a seamless look and feel for the file sharing experience, enabling MSPs to showcase their brand or that of their client — not ours. The ability to tailor a bespoke customer experience further helps MSPs to deliver a more holistic and frictionless user experience for their clients.
