(Reviewed on 09 December 2020) "Great client sharing capabilities"

What do you like best?

The ability to securely request and share files with our clients

What do you dislike?

I appreciate how secure the file sharing password settings are, however it's difficult to select a password that is strong enough to satisfy their criteria.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping files secure, while also being able to effectively share data with our clients has been fantastic.

(Reviewed on 09 December 2020) "Outstanding Sharing, Collaboration and Information tool"

What do you like best?

Easy to use Platform, intuitive. Simplicity in design

What do you dislike?

Nothing, loved every aspect of Egnyte. Visually it's comfortable and in line with other filing programs.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When using Egnyte, be sure to use the power features. Really understand the POWER of Egnyte and leverage it to its full potential

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sharing up to date presentations to 3 selling teams, while ensuring that "versions" of the decks and price lists weren't confusing.

(Reviewed on 19 November 2020) "Egnyte Your File Sync & Share Capabilities"

What do you like best?

The Egnyte platform provides an easy way to set up a cloud based file server for an organization where their employees are dispersed across a geography. It enables organizations to securely store their data in a central location, in the cloud, or physical location in a data center, or both. It also provides organizations with the ability to manage the data to ensure that it conforms to the standards and governance policies and procedures that they must adhere to.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing that I dislike about the product. Before Egnyte Protect was introduced you had to ensure that you had a means of backing up the data stored in Egnyte. Now that you can set retention policies, the solution ensures that the data is available and backed up if your turn on Egnyte Protect.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problem that Egnyte solves is providing an organization with a central file server in the cloud at a reasonable cost. This is great for organizations that do not want to install, maintain, and manage a file server in their data center. Eliminates the hardware, software, and management costs associated with a physical onsite server, and provides the organization with the benefits of a secure file server where file access and sharing can be managed easlity.

(Reviewed on 16 November 2020) "This is the best cloud based file share service we have ever used."

What do you like best?

How easy it is to share specific folders and files with certain users

What do you dislike?

There are certain files that are unable to be stored on Egnyte. However, those files are very very limited.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One problem we have solved is having to replenish hardware that has become obsolete.

(Reviewed on 09 November 2020) "Egnyte - simple to use and many useful functions."

What do you like best?

Limited white-label options, FTP access to folders and easy setting of expiry.

What do you dislike?

White label options could be better expanded.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Egnyte to deliver one-off files to our customers, which is much easier to set up than a traditional FTP.

(Reviewed on 29 October 2020) "A cloud storage tool with high security standards. Very useful for personal and commercial use"

What do you like best?

- It has a simple and intuitive interface.

- Egnyte provides a workspace according to your organization's domain.

- It has apps for mobile devices.

- It has affordable prices according to the number of employees.

- Tasks can be assigned.

- Folders can be shared to specific users.

What do you dislike?

I have never had a problem with Egnyte and I am completely happy with the features it has brought to my company.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Egnyte is a reliable, safe and inexpensive service. It is cross-platform and easy to use. It has high security standards, so I guarantee that your data will be protected.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Egnyte has solved my company's file sharing problems, as email was not a reliable option for file sharing and we were unable to send large files either. Thanks to this software we can work in a faster and more efficient way to share files.

(Reviewed on 21 October 2020) "Egnyte has been great, and we are glad we switched over from our previous provider"

What do you like best?

The most helpful thing from Egnyte is being to use it as our server, we are able to quickly share file with our team and our customers and its amazing at organizing projects. I also like the user interface which is not cluttered, the folder organization is the same as the one on my local pc. Another thing i really like is the simplicity of adding users to Egnyte and the creation of groups, and the ability to give different permission.

What do you dislike?

The only downside i have is probably that whenever i share multiple files, it creates a link for each file rather than making one link for all. Another issue that i have ran into is that it allows separate people to open the same file without any type of warning which creates the possibility of overwriting another's users work.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Egnyte is helping with allowing our team have access to our files in an online server. It has also helped with the speediness and accessibility of posted files, once we upload files, we are able to quickly get a link to share with others.

(Reviewed on 11 October 2020) "A corporate storage solution for 21st-century knowledge workers"

What do you like best?

Egnyte offers a storage solution that fully integrates into a Windows environment. The Egnyte server works like any other drive and it uses our authentication system for seamless security. The mobile app gives you convenient access to your files while on the go. The ability to request files from outside users via a drag and drop web interface is invaluable for helping projects get off the ground quicker, and less confusing than dealing with dozens of email attachments. It is very easy to recover damaged Excel files with Egnyte’s file version tool.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to create file request request links from within the native Windows environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure your authentication server is set up properly.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Egnyte eliminated the need to have a VPN set up to access files on the local server. Then it eliminated the need for a local server. I’m far more comfortable with offsite storage.

(Reviewed on 28 September 2020) It is great!!


What are the best aspects of this product?

It s very functional and useful. It connects with my device easily.

What aspects are problematic or could work better?

It needs to improve its filter functionality. Getting filter per column will be a great help, especially when you need a particular file.

What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?

All our documents can be accessed by our remote employees. Egnyte has helped our business greatly.

Are you a current user of this product?

(Reviewed on 23 September 2020) "Just what we needed"

What do you like best?

Egnyte is accessible from all of our devices. It is consistently reliable and has enabled our company to collaborate much more efficiently. The Desktop Connect integration is so valuable and easy to use. It is the exact cloud-based service we need to keep our business running from anywhere.

What do you dislike?

There are very few flaws with Egnyte. It is occasionally frustrating to have so many steps to authenticate your identity - but it is necessary for the level of security provided.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to get rid of our VPN connections between offices that were incredibly slow. Being able to access our files from any location (and offline) has been tremendously more helpful than we expected. We have also been able to gain more clientele by describing all of our capabilities Egnyte has enabled us with.
