About Us
About Us

Experienced, results-oriented and customer-focused

eShare was originally founded in 2012 by a group of information security engineers as nCrypted Cloud to provide highly-secure external information sharing solutions built upon already existing cloud file sharing services.

Though the company initially focused on the consumer market, it quickly became clear that Microsoft, Box, Dropbox and Google were not fully meeting the needs of enterprises who wanted to use their cloud file storage and sharing services to share regulated and proprietary data with clients, partners, suppliers and other outside parties.

Re-branded as eShare in 2017, we are solely focused on meeting the external file sharing and content collaboration needs of medium to large sized enterprises.
