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.

Egnyte is the Perfect Business-Ready Cloud Solution

2017-05-18

Access to company files (especially jobsite related ones) anywhere, security, and efficiency.

Pros

The local server storage sync for office computers to have easy access to all cloud files locally is very helpful.

Cons

The administration package (SSO) is really expensive, I wish they supported fingerprint security like they do on iOS, and the app crashes when syncing lots of files that were marked offline.

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

Egnyte is best for backup and FTP with HIPAA compliant security

2018-07-30

Secure backup of all our documents, easy to set up FTP sites, that have HIPAA compliant security.

Pros

Egnyte has HIPAA compliant security and lots of good security settings, like invitation links that expire and cannot be forwarded.

Cons

Sometimes the backup function locks up without reason. It can usually be resolved with a few clicks, but I've never figured out what happens to prompt the shutdown. The app is great for uploading photos and similar to the site, but I've never been able to use the app to invite a user - everything looks like it's working, but the "save" screen doen't pop up the way it does on the computer, and so it doesn't save the invitation and thus doesn't work. Overall, though we love this software.

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.

Nice platform with good management tools

2018-06-05

There is plenty of storage on the lower-end plans.

Pros

Also, I like the notifications on folder changes to keep me up to date without checking in.

Cons

I don't have a ton of cons to add, but I will say not all filetypes preview, but most do. The only thing we've had issues with is the desktop sync, but it wasn't anything major and was quickly addressed by the support team.

Engyte is the perfect platform to store your work in the cloud

2018-04-14

Pros

Another great functionality, if you work with vendors, is you can provide them with a link that will just allow them to drop files while they won't be able to see or modify its contents.

Cons

- While having everything in the cloud is great you need to account for time spent downloading and uploading content, which can be a lot depending on your Internet connection.

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

The necessary platform for business

2018-03-31

Pros

The platform offers an affordable way to protect my documents, the security is password protected, and I can trust this application with all my personal data.

The only thing I do not like is the lack of the ability to update documents in real time by more than one user.
