    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Dropbox Business and Google Drive

    Reasons for Switching to 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.

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    OneDrive and Box

    Reasons for Choosing 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.

    Dropbox Business

    Reasons for Switching to 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.

    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.

    Response from Egnyte

    Egnyte

    Reviewed on 2022/03/23

    Pros

    We use Egnyte as our file repository and cloud storage platform. The new feature that allows co editing is the one I like the most. While allowing us to use MS native apps and not use Google for simultaneous collaboration, I think it is a wonderful tool. It also syncs well with Mac and Windows folders allowing access on computer directly than having to go to web each time it needs to be accessed.

    Cons

    The collaboration feature edits sometimes are delayed not giving the live and current updates being made by other parties.
