Business Storage Hosting In A New Light

Egnyte is what happens when you combine Elon Musk's brain capacity with digital file hosting: Genius integration.

Pros

I really appreciate the way Egnyte naturally integrated into our existing business. It calculated the items we had to store and kept them in an impressive bow. The interface is very clean and distinguishable. The features all stand out in their own presence. But the one factor that really earned my loyalty to the software was the storage performance. Egnyte is the powerhouse of online file hosting. It has the durability to carry highly dense files and load them in a concise, quick manner.

Cons

Aside from not knowing of this software sooner, I do hope that Egnyte will create the opportunity for collaborative sharing through external mail hosts (email to be specific). Otherwise, I hold the software in high regards.

Reasons for Choosing Egnyte

I work as an executive assistant for a media production and one of the most important factors in our workflow is the archive storage. And we had digitally heavy files. We were determined to search for an online host that delivered the standards we were in need of. After close research and trial runs, Egnyte gave us the greatest performance. I was in awe of its features and quality. Egnyte was powerful and professional, in a way that its competitors could not withstand.

Secure Organization

Overall it was easy to implement and for end users to understand how to use it. My team did not need to undergo much training or assistance while working through implementation

Pros

I really like how Egnyte is able to sync up with a computer's own folder system making the ability to save and work with secure documents on your computer where ever you are and maintaining files solely within the frame of Egnyte. Also being able to customize our home space with our own logo and colors was a nice touch.

Cons

Some of the APIs come with an additional cost, which is sometimes less than satisfactory, and the APIs sometimes have limitations, but otherwise, it's been an entirely positive experience.

Reasons for Choosing Egnyte

Egnyte's ability to control access at each level of a folder/ document stack was crucial- as well as being able to invite external partners to temporarily have access to their own collaborative folder and account. The amount of space we were given for the cost was reasonable, and the customer support team has been great at staying in touch and working with us as needed.

Reasons for Switching to Egnyte

We needed a solution that allowed us to maintain a more granular approach to security and access. Egnyte also came with several API solutions that have aided in a more smooth and secure transition of documents with external partners and employees.

My experience with egnyte

We use Egnyte to share, access, upload/download files within and outside the office. It serves well some days but I am personally not a big fan of it knowing there are other platforms that work more seamlessly.

Pros

I like the fact that its cloud based and has mobile sharing too, makes sharing files between office locations possible and easy.

Cons

Its not the best content sharing platform I've used.It doesn't really integrate well with google and can be confusing to use sometimes.

Egnyte is Dropbox done right

Egnyte has been a professional and customer-focused company. They continue to improve the product across their product offerings, maintaining parity across the ever-changing landscape.

Pros

No desktop footprint! This is a big win when dealing with distributed workers with laptops. Everyone has full access to files they are allowed, and they take no space (until they are accessed). I also love the ability to fine-tune permissions at the sub-folder level.

Cons

Permissions are the hardest thing for some users to get the hang of. In Egnyte, they aren't difficult, but some users have difficulty managing the permissions on the website, since they only use the folders on their desktop (sync'd).

Reasons for Choosing Egnyte

Permissions capability. Advanced "virtual drives" to reduce impact on laptops.

Sturdy for Mid Size companies

Pros

Better than Dropbox, more secure than Box.

Cons

The mobile app sometimes experienced glitches and sync issues. And the desktop app doesn’t have a good offline mode in case of lost connectivity.

Reasons for Switching to Egnyte

Our IT department decided over Box because of Egnytes security
