History[edit]

By 2007, ShareFile had established a solid user base of over 150,000 users and received praise from Internet review sites for its ease of use and security.[1] In 2008 ShareFile won CNET's Webware100 in the category of Utility/Storage; there were more than 1.9 million votes for the 2008 awards.[2]

In 2009 ShareFile passed the 1,000,000 user milestone.[3]

In September 2010 ShareFile was ranked No. 104 on the 2010 Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies. The company was listed again in 2011 when the magazine ranked ShareFile No. 241 on its 30th annual Inc. 500.

ShareFile has grown organically with no outside capital and corporate customers spread across more than 100 countries around the world.[4]

According to ShareFile, the service now has over 6 million users as of August, 2012.
