Benefits:

We support a College where users want to access their files with every type of device under the sun. Many remote access solutions require specific plugins or modules. MWD requires nothing more than a standard browser. It's JUST WORKED on everything we've thrown at it, and even our most novice of users are comfortable with the interface. The customer support team is, bar none, the best, most responsive I've dealt with. You will get actual human replies (not just canned answers) quickly and accurately. Where reasonable they will pass feature requests on to their development team and work to get them in place, but in my experience they add features faster than you can request them. I looked for a remote file solution for a long time before finding MWD, and it's one of the best software packages we have purchased. We've been customers since the beta days, so it's had lots of usage from lots of users.

In sum:

Our entire user base are able to access their files from anywhere, on any type of device. It integrated great with our portal using ADFS.

Overall rating

Benefits:

It's accessible anywhere and anytime. It also ties in with our file server so we always know the original source and not a copy somewhere in the cloud.

Drawbacks:

We have a very large data set, in the multi terabytes. Due to its size, we needed to implement a more robust search feature (with some added cost) because native Windows tools had reached their limits.

In sum:

A more secure way to access work files anywhere and anytime.

«MyWorkDrive gives our remote users the ability to connect to our local file server!»

Usability

Features

Overall rating

Benefits:

The best thing about MyWorkDrive is how it seamlessly connects our remote users to a local file share. We had been trying to use both Box and our local file share, but kept having manual sync issues and speed issues over our VPN for remote users. MyWorkDrive solved both of those issues. It gave us an option for creating a remote local drive map directly to our file share! We don't use Office 365 so this option was a must... and they nailed it!

Drawbacks:

The setup of the remote local drive map was a bit difficult, but MyWorkDrive support was able to assist and get us going.

In sum:

Connecting remote users to a local file share.

Overall rating

Benefits:

We use this software as a VPN replacement. We have been very pleased with it. We started out with a 20 user beta for about a year, and recently rolled it out to the entire enterprise. We have had excellent luck with it and outstanding support when needed.

Drawbacks:

They have come a long way with their client software support with MAC, but it still doesn't work as smoothly as the Windows client.

In sum:

Overall, MyWorkDrive is a great addition to all mobile workers that you have on staff, or as a VPN replacement. I would highly recommend it.

Overall rating

Benefits:

Simple but incredibly powerful! MyWorkDrive resolves a huge problem for VisionSpring. We're a not-for-profit and have a very small IT team, but we have many small offices around the world and we all travel a lot, so we needed an effective way to share files. I was also give the directive to make the company function as if we were in one location. We tried OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Sharepoint, DropBox, Box, etc., but nothing gave us the functionality we needed for filesharing. That is to say, our team is not very technical so we needed something to seamlessly work with Windows, with little and preferably no training. MyWorkDrive gave us exactly what we needed!

Drawbacks:

There's nothing I don't like, but I would like a bit more integration with mobile devices. The mobile app is great, the performance is amazing, but what I'd like to be able to do is have MyWorkDrive be a location to place docs from emails, and photos from gallery.

Benefits:

Solves a problem where remote users store there files in there personal, inaccessible cloud drives, not on a domain server where they can be better managed. Easy remote access to there domain shares resolves this (at least we are hoping).

Overall rating

Benefits:

MyWorkDrive is the only product we found that met our requirements for remote access, security, and cost. With MyWorkDrive our users can access their files from home securely without IT having to manage the endpoint. MyWorkDrive isn't restricted to a per user license so we can make the product available to all of our employees. MyWorkDrive uses our on site storage so we don't have to pay for costly cloud storage on multiple terabytes of data.

Drawbacks:

When moving from the trial version to the full paid version we had to contact support to keep the same URL.

In sum:

Ease of use managing file access for BYOD.
