Why Add Hightail to Microsoft SharePoint

SharePoint is one of the major content management and collaboration platforms for internal workgroups across companies of all industries and sizes. A recent study estimates that Microsoft adds around 20,000 SharePoint users every day and 80% of Fortune 500 companies use the platform.
