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.

I love Egnyte! Top file storage, sharing and manipulation

2020-04-05

Pros

Their online web tool is great for searching and takes away the limit of the operating system which slows the search down. 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.

We use Egnyte to share, access, upload/download files within and outside the office.

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.

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.

The biggest offering for cloud storage on the market

2020-09-13

It literally makes an all cloud central server possible.

Pros

SUPER granular access privilege control. Trash for up to 6 months.

Cons

It has its buggy moments. The mobile offering is definitely weaker than the desktop.

Egnyte Cloud File Sharing

2021-06-04

Great tool for my team and I to upload and share files. Integrates well with our servers.

Pros

I'm able to create new folders, assign permissions and distribute to my team seamlessly.

Cons

Other than that it operates very well, even better most times, than other cloud-based file sharing.

Easy Access Anywhere

2021-01-06

There are still a lot of features I haven't event started to use, so it is really exciting what possibilities are available.

Pros

I love that I can access documents I need anywhere -- we moved from an onsite server that required a VPN to access off-site and which was slow and not very useful, to Egnyte which allows my to grab documents from my phone and is so much more efficient.

Cons

Sorting documents is a bit lacking sometimes when I want to simply search for the most recent document of any file time within a number of subfolders.

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

2018-03-07

Pros

The software gives us a documents for each of our records and was pretty easy to setup.

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.

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.

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

Working with large teams and large files, Egnyte was the thing we were always missing.

Cons

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

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

Great product for my company

2018-05-11

The greatest benefits is being able to have a drive that is Hippa compliant where we can post sensitive client information and the information is protected

Pros

I am able to allow all of my employees to access this drive and share files between all the employees.

Cons

We only call in is that you have to download a separate software in order to edit documents and repost them back online
