Egnyte has enabled us to seamlessly and securely store our content in the cloud and synchronise it around our global offices, providing fast local storage where creatives can easily access and leverage it, whilst also allowing clerical users to share it back out securely to any client on any platform, with fully audited secure access. The desktop user interface is the same regardless of if you come at it from a Mac or Windows platform, and the cloud UI is equally easy to follow .
What do you dislike?
The only downside is that some of the key selling points to make it 100% perfect for us have taken a little bit of time to come to mainstream availability, but they are now present in every Egnyte Connect Client that we have on all our computers so we are satisfied that even though we got on board before these features were ready we are glad that we were fully using Egnyte when they became current as we could then start using them instantly with all our content all ready and cloud loaded.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Make sure that you properly engage with their Customer Success team and ensure that you follow all their best practise with regards to implementation. Do not think that this is a way of removing hardware, instead understand that it can also increase the value of existing infrastructure and help shape future purchases. Ensure that you get not just stakeholder engagement but also end user traction with regards to the power of the system to deliver content securely anywhere. Yes some working practises have to change, but this is a better way than adding attachments to emails or using free third party sharing solutions.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We have global offices in the UK, America and Australia and needed to have the same content available everywhere so that we could work round the clock handing off from Australia to the UK and then on to Los Angeles before going back round the world again every day, all week. This enables us to work smarter and deliver seamlessly to our global clients naturally no matter where they are in all the time zones we have the ability to share back completed work from a single global file system.

I love the WebEdit tool - open your file from Egnyte, it opens on your desktop, and automatically saves back to Egnyte. If you've ever had to work from VPN and fought with slow connectivity, Egnyte will seem like a dream come true. Files at your fingertips just as if you'd saved them on your desktop! Working remotely is SO easy with Egnyte. Our team was rarely in the same location, and we shared and accessed files seamlessly with Egnyte - it made collaborating so simple. The cost and amount of storage received is very generous, and something that anyone could fit into their budget.
What do you dislike?
I don't dislike anything about Egnyte. It's a great platform! There used to be a desktop sync option, where the files were right on your desktop and synced back to Egnyte. It's a bummer they don't have that anymore, bc then you truly were working right off your desktop (in your Egnyte folder) and everything was syncing back. I miss that.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Don't delay! Get it now. You won't regret it. It's such a powerful, necessary tool for seamless teamwork both in the office and remote. You always have access to your files - no matter where you are or whether or not you have your computer. You can always log in and access whatever you need as long as you have internet and a computer.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It's so easy to share files inside and outside the organization. It makes working remotely with other coworkers seamless - it's like we're sharing files from the same cubicle at work. Egnyte makes working remotely SO efficient. I can't imagine traveling for work and not having Egnyte - I always have everything I need and don't have to worry about not having copied something to my desktop before talking to a client.

Simple functionality of egnyte- ease of doing the things we need to do - uploading and downloading and sharing links of large documents and files with external audiences. I also like the mobile app for in a pinch when my laptop or tablet don't make sense on the road. Has never gone down or been unaccessible in the 10+ years we have been using it. Recent improvements help everyone see who has done what with documents and files more clearly.
What do you dislike?
Searching for pictures - some of the image rendering - in a file with large number of high res pics- can be a tad on the slow side but they are big files
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Also, we had a subpoena recently and the Egnyte system was so easy to search and download and isolate over 5 years worth of files and documents in question that it relieved a huge headache for a small staff
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Sharing info in a semi-distributed workforce; providing good member service and sharing of materials and documents. Being able to access all our stuff from anywhere and anytime. i don;t have an IT department so a "file server" is not in the picture here. it also offers really good back up functionality to ensure my employees are not going to lose all our staff if their machine crashes.
