  • Egnyte offers a good service for enterprise users. The service is easy to use and provides informative reports to allow administrations to make the most of all information provided.

  • Overall, Egnyte’s features are good, but are business-centric. There is very little for the private user to find enjoyable in the business-class styling and options of the service. Although any file types can be uploaded, if you wish to store and listen to music, a separate app or program would be required to play back the files. However, for those users who are looking for a great way to organize files among many users, Egnyte is a contender.

  • Egnyte Use Cases and Deployment ScopeIt was being used by a department, it address the problem of mobility - as there were people who were in different locations. Egnyte was great to use for everyone, I loved it.

    Pros : The key strengths (especially for a business structure like ours) was the ease of file sharingCompatibility with programsEase of use, after using it for a week when I first started - it was very simple to learn.

    Cons : I think that the design aspect of Egnyte could be improved, granted I haven't used it in a while, but when I used it - the design/portal was a little archaic - it could probably use a face-lift.

    Egnyte provides me a secure platform of sharing all my data content to all the social media platform for enhancing my business network. It provides a secure access with any cloud and on premises provider. Providing strict standards and measures for ensuring to keep the privacy and protect the data of an individual. Being its exclusive feature of differentiating it from other competitors in the market is that provides its clients a platform to store files and data on a data center of the company or on the cloud. The company itself owns their enterprise to store data and further integrates with various devices and business applications giving its customers the access to their data wherever they want it and whenever they want it. The syncing and sharing of files has become at a simple click and the tracking much more easier about the progress and spread of the business marketing network and business.

    Pros :

    • The exclusive feature of saving the content over the cloud as well as under the company’s structured domain is the best that I got from this software when compared to the rest of the competitors offering the same services.
    • Apart from it switching from one social media platform to the other apart form it moving from one project work to another has become quite ease and quick in terms of navigation.
    • Uploading as well as sharing the content is quick and responsive in nature.
    • The overall maneuvering and monitoring the work is good over the platform and can be securely managed.

    Cons :

    • Considering the overall technical platform to be pretty good enough,
    • Egnyte is not cost efficient for small business firms and provides limitations to certain access in terms of bandwidth and file transmissions.
    • It is very efficient for large organizations but for me it was a problem as I am just into the growing phase of my business.
    • Apart from the cost concern and the usage to industry, while getting through the software, I faced at times issues with the authentication and certain issues at the time of booting the platform. It might be a fault of my service provider, but that was a flaw I faced at times.

    Egnyte is a highly secure file sync and share service meant for enterprises of all sizes. Egnyte offers on-premise, cloud or hybrid deployment solutions that cater to different needs of different organizations. With hybrid or on-premise deployment, the business never has to worry about the security of their data residing on a cloud server.

    Pros :

    • All kind of files can be stored and shared using Egnyte, which includes Office documents, pdf, audio and video files.
    • It also allows uploading files of any size, unlike other players who are a big differentiator.
    • IT administrator has complete control over who sees what and can control access to all the files and from a centralized location.
    • It even allows creating users and groups and setting permissions from the web portal itself.
    • In my opinion, Hybrid deployment option is a great advantage. It helps businesses feel more secure and enjoy the benefits of the cloud as well.
    • Another differentiator for me was that mobile apps are so potent that one can even create and edit documents from the mobile apps rather than just reading the content.
    • The mobile applications are available for less popular platforms like Kindle and Nook, which makes Egnyte completely device agnostic.
    • Every file sharing service allows setting various permissions to shared files and folders, but a unique restriction one can put with Egnyte is on the number of clicks a user is allowed for a particular file.

    Cons :

    • Egnyte allows to store and share audio and video files but does not provide the capability to stream the media as well like Hightail.
    • One has to rely on other third party integrations to stream the audio and video files. It does not have a trimmed down version for personal use.
    • Also, a mobile application for Blackberry is missing.
    • One can sync only one folder. There is no option to sync multiple folders at one time.
    • Also, once a folder has been selected for sync with Egnyte, it can’t be changed to another folder unless you uninstall and reinstall the application.
    • There is no provision to manage and prioritize files that are syncing.
    • One can not specify the bandwidth to be used for uploading a particular file.

    Egnyte is a highly secure cloud storage solution for corporate houses which helps them to transfer and share files in the utmost secure manner. This product has a capacity to share a file which can be as big as 10GB in size. This is a by far the largest amount of data that can be transferred or shared on a cloud storage solution in form of a file. The Egnyte file server is scalable on demand and is also affordable for all. It is easy to use and it allows its users to edit and change shared document as well. Egnyte provides Adaptive Enterprise File Services which enables both IT professionals and users to have both visibility and control along with anticipation of their individuals needs. It notifies the user through mails about the successful delivery of the files shared. It also offers mobile apps to provide access to files from any device and any platform. One can not only access the files from the mobile apps but editing of files is also possible.

    Pros :

    The best thing about this software is combination of speed and security. Files that are transferred and shared through this product can be viewed offline as well and that too from any peripheral device as desired by the user. The complexity of downloading a zipped file or a compressed file and then aligning it in its original format is completely cut down by the use of this tool. Also, it allows us to share file in the same font and format as the original. All files shared on the software are centrally controlled thus giving it uniformity and easy access.It also supports use of FTP to upload multiple files in a much faster manner. It provides a unique hybrid solution to enterprises. Enterprises can keep critical data on their own premises guarded by firewall and other security mechanisms, and other less sensitive data can be kept on the Egnyte cloud server. The data is always encrypted on Egnyte servers and data is secured even when the data is in transit. Even Egnyte’s servers are protected by Firewalls and other protection systems.

    Cons :

    It does not support media files and hence restricts sharing of such files on cloud. Microsoft files show errors while saving and opening and needs a little work on its hybrid option. I personally do not like desktop sync application. It is not suitable for personal use.
