Well suited if you're using a lot of tools that work in tandem with this such as Snowflake, Amazon, S3,
, Power, BI, Redshift, and others. It also has robust functionality for the quality management of metadata sets. The most helpful thing here is all the dashboards that provide visibility in one place. In my experience, less suited for collaboration across teams. Not a ton of ways to do things in real-time together.

Egynte is best suited for companies that
is not the best fit for. This includes managers unfamiliar with
specifically, and those really looking for a replacement for a file server in the more traditional Windows sense.
has more or less done away with any management that resembles Active Directory or File Explorer. Egnyte's web portal is incredibly straightforward. I would say Egnyte is less suited for companies that have licensing access to
already and do not have a ton of files or granular sharing and security needs

It's OpenSource framework provides extension capabilities to the API it uses Read full review Sharing files externally with passwords, link expiration and granular control of permissions File syncing across end-user devices using a client installed onto the computer for seamless integration for end-users as if they had mapped a drive directly to their machine Implements 2FA for secure access Read full review Cons API documentation could be improved Support team could be quicker in their response Not a lot of "help" type information users can self-access Read full review The main drawback of the system that it is lacking in managing the uploading of large or huge files, even though the large files can be easily downloadable but the upload takes a lot of time. While uploading the system sometimes starts lagging and the file after sometimes needs to upload again. Egnyte is lacking in syncing multiple platforms at the same time. It gives access to one platform at a time which somehow hinders the work while migrating a large amount of data. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We found that usage of Egnyte in our supported clients, with sufficient bandwidth, provided all the features and stability we required. The billing setup was fair and the support provided was ample for end users and well as our in house admins. There was a concern about high usage clients but this was taken into account during the vetting process.

Really easy to use the interface. The web browser is very intuitive and I have not had any notable issues with this. It's easy to work on documents as a team, and the only issues we have to tend to come with Apple apps and downloading large files to WebEdit. It's very similar to the filing systems that come on Apple and Windows devices so not a steep learning curve.

Egnyte works very well across all platforms and as an add-on to other programs. Load time is close to nothing. Reports can be made in no time as well. All in all no performance issues. We can see that it depends on the local network connection. If you're running with fiber there won't be any issues.

I never had to reach out to customer support for Egnyte. I don't know any coworkers who have had to reach out to Egnyte for support either. As far as I am concerned, the support team is doing a good job since I have not had to reach out to them.

At the time when this was implemented (over 5 years ago and still in production), there were issues with syncing and reliability that Egnyte did not have, and have continued to impress with. Other providers have improved a lot and Egnyte is fairly costly, but switching costs would be high to move away from it to similar solutions.
Read full review Return on Investment Atlan has certainly saved time and money by consolidating our metadata sets Integrations with Amazon and Tableau have definetely sped up our time to value Read full review Allows us to easily communicate important data securely with other offices (not just sending via email) It allows everyone in our office to be working on the same information at the same time It meshes so well with salesforce that I can't really picture what our practice would look like if we didn't have the combination.
