CTERA Drive

Scalable, secure file sync solution with mobile collaboration capabilities. Implement CTERA Drive and it will provide you with next-generation cloud storage services with no compromise on scalability, security and manageability, while minimizing the low total cost of ownership. Proven to be a cloud-native, API-driven solution that supports complete service automation to easily deploy backup and recovery services.

If you're simply sharing and syncing across devices and don't care about granular security permissions, this is an easy win.If you're needing more control over the ability to restrict users from deleting folders, sharing folders, and allowing only certain groups to be able to view a folder, this can work but will ultimately give you arthritis as you'll end up having to perform a multitude of clicks for a task that should be able to be done in a fraction of the action. Have a folder template that allows for the first two levels of folders to be view only and the third level allowing file/folder creation and deletion? Have fun setting each of the third level folder's permissions-- they should give out free wrist braces.When discussed with their engineers about this function, a suggested $28,000 custom script was suggested. I don't believe them when they say that they haven't heard of other customers wishing to assign rights to multiple folders-- Something any sort of real admin would require. It simply isn't important to them, which is fine. The current ability

Cons

CTERA Drive

  • Not easy to manage permissions on backup
  • Just a little improvement on reporting functionality
Matt Storer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Egnyte

  • We often have issues with WebEdit, changes not saving/overwriting
  • No functionality to drag and drop files/folders within the UI, can only move things by going through Move > Select location
  • When previewing Word files in the browser, tracked changes are not shown so there can be misunderstandings when quickly reviewing documents

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.

We can really do anything we would like within Egnyte. If we find we're missing something, we can always go through their community and suggest changes. The major thing we're missing is the collaboration option within the desktop apps. It's working online though and for now, that's enough. Once it's implemented it will be 10/10.

Haven't had any issues with online page loading time. However, when downloading Keynote or Numbers files to WebEdit, there is often a delay in the file downloading or opening. Sometimes there are also issues with it opening multiple versions of the same file in WebEdit. One of these will be the WebEdit version and one will be a local version, if you don't notice this or accidentally close the wrong one, then you can lose your work. Sometimes this is retrievable through locally stored files but it does cause difficulties.

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.

Alternatives Considered

CTERA Drive

From a disaster recovery standpoint, CTERA Drive has the best built-in disaster recovery tools and hybrid cloud backup of files features. It provides all of the benefits of a modern file management system without any of the security compromises that come from storing files in a shared cloud service.
Matt Storer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Egnyte

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.

Return on Investment

CTERA Drive

  • Stores data at ⅛th of the total cost of traditional backup approaches
  • 100% automation
  • Real-time data availability
  • Cost of CTERA Drive less than annual maintenance of traditional backup methods
Matt Storer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Egnyte

  • 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.
