Pros

We use it to store just about all of our digital assets online for easy sharing and archiving. Integrations are great and the mobile app makes it simple to location and use files or assets on the go.
The value is good for the amount of space and is easy to access from anywhere. I fell safe using it and the support team was great when I needed it.
What I love most about this software is that it is super easy to use and is automatic on my computer. Whatever I have in my documents gets automatically loaded to the drive lol sooo coool.

Pros

Overall it is a great software with a very helpful customer service, also their training videos are awesome and very helpful.
So far, very satisfied with it. Great for remote/distributed teams, good value for the money vs the mainstays like Dropbox and Box.
Egnyte does a great job for online secure document storage. With tight hierarchal permissions, it's a great option for remote companies who don't have local offices to secure sensitive documents.

Cons

As this is free (option to pay for more storage is available), I have no legitimate complaints. Some people may be concerned about the privacy of their data.
Sometimes I have issues with the video I download being turned sideways and having to correct that mistake. It is frustrating but nothing that can't be handled.
The confidentiality of the files stored is doubtful. It is of high risk to store private and confidential information on the cloud since it can be leaked to outside if it is hacked.

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.
Sharing files in real-time is almost impossible. Also, it Egnyte does experience crashing issues when there's a poor internet connection.
If you are using it to upload files, there could be a lag of half an hour before recipient can view file.

Egnyte

Absolute must for fast growing companies

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Egnyte and its various integrations is an absolute must for a shared file system in any startup. As a growing company, employees have their favorite tools - Engineers seem to prefere Google, Marketing and Sales and Administrative generally need MS Office, etc. Egnyte allows everything to be accessible from a single interface. "where is that slide deck? was it Google Drive or One Drive or just local to your computer?" is a major problem in a fast moving, growing company. Egnyte solves that as part of everyday business. User administration is simplified with straight forward AD integration and also key is inviting outside consultants to share documents is trivial as well. All huge workflow advantages.

Cons

The robust feature set can sometime confuse folks who's user behavior has been set by Google Drive or OneDrive (or even Box or DropBox).

Egnyte

We couldn't work without it

Reviewed 2 years ago

Previously we were using a physical server and when we started with Egnyte years ago "the Cloud" wasn't as big as it is now. From the start it was obvious that this was a superior way of having a server that we have never looked back.

Pros

Is everything an acceptable response? Easy to setup - easy to use Plugin for Outlook - can create download links to send entire folders Can setup either as something that syncs a specific file(s) to the Egnyte server or have direct access to the server (depending on the user one is better then the other). Mobile apps for both iOS and Andriod - everyone has access to all their files from anywhere they have data coverage or Wi-Fi Their tech support is top notch, always responds same day.

Cons

I have yet to find a con. I guess there are free options available (Google Drive and OneDrive) but the free options are very limited so you'll have to eventually buy a plan anyways.

Egnyte

Simple file sharing with governance capabilities

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The software is as easy to use as things that Dropbox and Google Drive, but provides additional capabilities for advanced users, such as FTP access where necessary.

Cons

So far I haven't really encountered any issues apart from not having a Linux based sync client.
