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

Egnyte is basically used where the company needs to exchange the files or documents with the clients so it's suits the best when we need to share something with others. Sometimes it's taking more time to upload the particular files which is very irritating so these are the scenarios where Egnyte is less appropriate.

Egnyte is the perfect solution for the big Organizations to securely share their files and information to outside with a full trustworthy approach. Great software which gives a cloud-based location for Organizations to easily store their information in the cloud and physical location both. Need some improvements in the desktop apps and needs changing in syncing with multiple platforms.

I have been using Cloudflare in the organization for a long time and it is helping me a lot in storing the information and securing the network with topmost security features and tools available in the platform. Egnyte is one of the best cloud content governed platform available in the market which deals in all kind of processes related to cloud storage.

In professional services environments, Egnyte is a suitable option providing reliable and secure storage options. There may be more affordable options out there, but because of how reliable it has been, it has been worth the cost for the organization on a continual basis year after year. For smaller teams or organizations with non-standard operating hardware, it might be better to use a different, more affordable option.

Even though it is little buggy, I would highly recommend it due to its ease of use and its multi platform support(excluding Linux). Even the people with non technical background rarely have problems using it. However, if one has to transfer big files on a regular basis, I wouldn't recommend it since the bugs do increase with [an] increase in file size.

Egnyte is great if you need to share secure sensitive data but don't trust Microsoft OneDrive or their email encryption. Additionally, its perfect for sharing larger files. Such as large PDFs or cameras footage request by law enforcement agencies and legal staff. It very robust and convenient to be able to access data on the go.

For uses similar to how we use Egnyte, as insecure links with tracking and reporting of access, I recommend using this software. For a day-to-day file share, it may not be as [a] continent or as reliable a Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive, but for a secure file share, this service fits the bill.

It works well for us as we are a small company, 15 people spread across Europe and the US, and the accessibility of data via the Z-drive is fairly seamless as long as you don't upload anything very large. As we all travel extensively it works well. It also keeps data storage costs down for small companies as it requires no significant IT infrastructure.

Access over the web is poor (rather than via the app), it is slow and editing rights are limited if not using the app.

Egnyte is the only software purchase that we have made as a company and had zero reservations. We have used Egnyte for 7 years now and we love this software. Not only was it amazing when we purchased 7 years ago, but it keeps improving and finding ways to be better!

Egnyte is very useful if you want to set up different permissions and folder structures in your organization. There are plenty of options and it's easy to inherit permissions, etc. Also, the different backup solutions are pretty easy to get a hold of and the tracking of changes to documents can be very useful. Egnyte is not yet fully adapted to be working for collaboration within the desktop versions of the different Office products, so you will need to expect to do it within the browser version.

Egnyte is the leader for no-frills digital storage needs as far as I am concerned. It's logically setup with ease of use seemingly built into their DNA. We use it for storing every file we need to keep- from documents to high-resolution graphics and photos. It is less appropriate to use when collaborating with volunteers outside of our organization. It's proved cumbersome when they don't have an internal email address.

In a world where Dropbox is king, Egnyte is the hidden gem that I honestly feel works better and has more functionality built in, for a similar (if not cheaper) price point. Any business office that has a traditional server holding eons of files could benefit from Egnyte and their cloud operations, eliminating the need for the hardware. It's great for collaboration between offices and colleagues, and the quick sync feature upon save means that everyone has the latest version of documents at any given time.

Egnyte is excellent in almost every scenario. It's great when your position requires quickly and safely sharing documents with multiple parties, or if you work in a place that requires a heavy amount of data storage that is easily accessible. I don't know how practical Egnyte is for the small business with only a few documents, but with a company our size that has tons of documents, it is an excellent place to neatly and succinctly keep that data organized.

Mid-size, growing companies who have employees that need access to multiple documents on the go or employees who telecommute. It made the small company feel larger and allowed resources normally reserved for a larger organization to be utilized. We worked faster, smarter and more efficiently because of Egnyte. I am not a Google Docs person and this is similar to Google Docs but with all of the issues addressed.

We plan events so each event is an individual file on Egnyte. It makes it easy to access each file and save all information - master arrangements, budget, hotel, registration reports, etc. We also travel a lot and are often separated so Egynte make it easy to access while on the road.

Egnyte is great if you want a simple solution for Salesforce integration, it also works well as a general cloud storage service; but not spectacularly. Very little sets Egnyte aside as "Special" but it is extremely affordable and it gets the job done. I wouldn't recommend Egnyte to anyone if they are looking for solid customer support. But if you are a mostly autonomous user, it's a solid investment.

This is appropriate for document storage, but is a less well suited system for documents that are accessed and changed or edited in any way really frequently. It is not a secure system for documentation also, so if you need that I would not recommend Egnyte for a good system.

Egnyte is definitely one of the best, if not the best, interface I've ever used for transferring files between devices and/ or persons. I think the best personal story I have using Egnyte is the time when my laptop was on the fritz/crashing. I was panicked, and IT didn't think they would be able to restore my laptop. I ended up uploading my entire computer's worth of data and documents to Egnyte! After that was done, I logged into my new device and, voilà, all of my personal and work data and docs were right there for me to download.

Egnyte is really suited for companies that have a large file structure with lots of files. This is a great option, rather than housing your own server. A smaller company that doesn't have much a file structure might find use with Egnyte, but it might not be cost effective. It's not the cheapest product, but there are some great features and are worth it.

Egnyte is great for working collaboratively on documents that are passed around from person to person. We use the WebEdit feature so only one person can edit the document at a time, which avoids confusion with multiple rounds of edits and is a huge help with version control. We have implemented our own detailed filing system and as long as this adheres to it, it means that there are never any missing files, or issues with finding/accessing documents when members of staff are on holiday or off sick. However, there are some documents that we still use Google Docs and Google Sheets for, as Egnyte doesn't allow multiple people to edit a document simultaneously. For collaborative work with clients, it's still very useful to be able to work on a document or spreadsheet at the same time and have instant updates, which Google services are good for.

Egnyte is well suited for internal agency communications here since it is an easier process to not have a unique password to share with colleagues. If they do not have an agency email (ie, a client) you will have to attach a password to the link since they cannot access it.
