Creative Cloud for enterprise with managed services keeps all of your files in sync. Any additions, modifications, or deletions are reflected on all connected computers and devices. For example, if you upload an .ai file using the Creative Cloud with managed services web interface, it is automatically synchronized with all connected computers.
Your Creative Cloud assets include files synced with your desktop, assets created using Creative Cloud enabled mobile apps, and Creative Cloud libraries.
