Of the nine vendors analyzed, Google Drive was ranked as a “Leader” and cited for its “solid EFSS services, especially for very large file use cases.” Where other EFSS providers have lower file-size limits, Forrester notes that Drive’s capabilities can handle even enormous video files in the hundreds of gigabytes. With the highest score possible in the technology strategy criterion, Google Drive’s “collaboration and content co-creation capabilities are strong, particularly when used in the context of G Suite."
