Welcome to eShare!
Transforming  Data Sharing and Collaboration

eShare wasn't just created out of necessity; it was born from a passion for secure information sharing. Founded in 2012 as nCrypted Cloud by a group of visionary information security engineers. Our mission was clear: to provide highly-secure external information sharing solutions, leveraging the power of existing cloud file sharing services.

Driven by our founders' expertise and fueled by the growing need for secure collaboration solutions, eShare emerged as a beacon of innovation in the realm of data sharing. From the very beginning, we recognized the importance of user experience, security, and compliance.

Over the years, we've evolved and expanded our platform to seamlessly integrate with a multitude of cloud platforms, including Microsoft 365, Google, Box, Dropbox, and more. This integration eliminates the need for additional data repositories, ensuring utmost security and peace of mind for our clients.

Today, eShare stands as a testament to our founders' vision and dedication. Built around familiar tools like Teams, SharePoint, OneDrive, Google Workspace, and Outlook, our platform empowers businesses to share data externally with confidence, knowing that their information is secure, compliant, and efficient.
