Drew Steed

Egnyte has been a great asset to our overall document storage strategy.

2018-02-20

Easy management of document storage for our company.

Pros

Has great application integrations with many top level software companies.

Cons

Very little, which is a great think. The link sharing is not quite as clear and clean I would like it to be. Can be confusing for most users or they could share public links easily on accident.

We use Egnyte within our Salesforce org. It has been great from the start.

2018-03-07

Pros

Being able to have Egnyte integrate with Salesforce is a must.

Cons

With us using Egnyte wishing Salesforce, we never use their web interface (which is still great) and we currently don't have a way to search files in individual records.

File sharing made easy

2019-08-02

Pros

It is extremely easy to share large amount of data/files across users on cloud - Can be divided among groups - Notifications when changes/edits are made make it is easy to track for the admins - Safe and secure - Even on mobile version, file access is fast

Cons

-Compared to Dropbox, the user interface is less pretty but the features make up for that part -Tough to track of the content view - who has viewed versus who has not

Ease of use with powerful capabilities where needed

2019-09-12

Overall, Egnyte is great, it's made it simple for me to access and store files in the cloud, but also integrate into automated workflows via command line tools.

Pros

Egnyte makes it easy to store files in a cloud based storage area, but has additional enterprise level capabilities that make it possible to integrate into powerful workflows.

Cons

Really the only thing I dislike about Egnyte is that there are no data sovereignty capabilities as far as I can tell. You can't specify where data is stored geographically.

Cloud solution with top notch sharing options

2019-04-16

The desktop version works really well and sync my files automatically.

Pros

Egnyte is a super cloud solution that have a nice folder structure with a really manageable permission scheme.

Cons

I think they might have solved this now. The reports option should maybe have some more options and flexibility.

I love Egnyte! Top file storage, sharing and manipulation

2020-04-05

Pros

Their online tool is also great for file management and version controlling.

Cons

The only downfall I have found is that Egnyte requires a relatively strong and fast internet connection to properly perform, and I have had occasions where this has let me down and cause file malfunctions between users.

NICOLE TESTA

Egnyte is helpful

2018-08-14

I've been using egnyte for some time now and I find it to be secure to contain all of my clients information easy-to-access anytime I need to look up there paperwork and well worth the price for all that I gained from using the software I recommended egnyte for other law practices

Pros

Egnyte is a great software to store files it is very user-friendly I have a lot of clients within my law practices and anytime I need to find a police report disclosure or any other information that I need everything is easily stored and Egnyte I have found it to be the best site for file story

Cons

Sometimes it appears that there are duplicate files created and causes a little confusion when I'm searching for just one document within the search bar this has been a little frustrating but it doesn't happen often and it hasn't changed the fact that I really enjoy using egnyte software

Business Storage Hosting In A New Light

2020-05-09

Egnyte is what happens when you combine Elon Musk's brain capacity with digital file hosting: Genius integration.

Pros

But the one factor that really earned my loyalty to the software was the storage performance.

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).

The speed of file transfers are pretty good and I like the flexibility and applications there's available.

Pros

I have the option to use Egnyte in my browser, as a drive on my PC or as automatic desktop backup.

Inherited permissions can become a bit of a mess and there's not really any easy way to make it better.

Egnyte was a game changer for our company!

2018-11-28

Being able to collaborate and share our files all in one place will save our team and company countless hour / even days from sending and searching for files like we used to do in the past.

Pros

The ability to access and control collaborative files across our team has streamlined our entire process.

Cons

It may be very pricey for the average team, but at the enterprise level, it is highly recommended.

Secure Organization

2019-11-04

Overall it was easy to implement and for end users to understand how to use it.

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.

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.

Egnyte Does the Job, but That's it.

2018-04-03

Pros

Egnyte is a cloud storage service with some basic admin controls and a desktop app that allows you to treat it as a network drive, as well a browser-based service.

Cons

It's not the best customer retention strategy, but in my experience, the dedicated support folks are difficult to get ahold of and have to escalate your issue more often than not because they are third-party. The Salesforce API fails periodically leaving the office high and dry if I (IT Director) am not around.
