Unlike cloud-only file sharing solutions, Egnyte is an enterprise-class file sharing solution with IT control over where files are stored. IT can choose between storing files in local storage, in Egnyte, or in other hosting solutions (S3, Azure, etc). Egnyte with local storage provides a significantly improved user experience compared to cloud-only file sharing solutions because of 25 times faster file access, avoiding saturation of internet connection, and no change to user mapped drive behavior. Egnyte also simplifies file sharing for IT by leveraging existing folder structures and access permissions to those folders as well as providing granular compliance reporting.

Whitepaper: Hybrid Approach Offers Solution to File Sharing Dilemma

by EgnyteJun 18, 2013

As IT and users fight the data deluge brought on by big data, social networks and multimedia, the benefits of implementing enterprise-class file sharing quickly come to light.

Almost every business has had to deal with mailbox bloat: attachments ranging from presentations to videos that end up in the inboxes and outboxes of email systems. Beyond clogging mail server arteries, the constant email barrage can leave collaborating teams wondering which versions of what document have the latest changes. Many organizations have turned to free file sharing services, only to discover that their lack of security, authentication and central control can introduce new levels of risk that far outweigh the reward. Enterprise-class file sharing solutions need to offer simple authentication of authorized users, ideally based on existing enterprise directories.

Fortunately, a "best-of-all-worlds" solution exists to bring all constituents into the corporate fold while offering the best possible performance in every environment. A hybrid on-premises and cloud approach to file sharing and synchronization unlocks new capabilities not possible until now, including uninterrupted online and offline access, integrated mobile workflows and a global view of all shared files regardless of where data resides.

Whitepaper: Collaboration Imperative Leads To Hybrid Solutions

by EgnyteJun 18, 2013

The bring-your-own-device phenomenon has led to many productivity gains, but it has also brought its share of challenges. An increasingly mobile workforce - one composed of remote employees, business partners and customers all requiring access to business-critical information - has resulted in a growing number of software-as-a-service and mobile platforms that IT must support and integrate with what's behind the corporate firewall.

To achieve some measure of collaboration, some individuals and groups have turned to unmanaged and unsanctioned cloud-based platforms such as Dropbox, much to the dismay of IT executives who then must identify and mitigate a host of security, governance and data-leakage challenges that consumer-grade sharing and collaboration sites can present. Meanwhile, companies that continue to rely solely on on-premises collaboration solutions are likewise challenged to meet the demands of their ever-widening circle of constituents outside the firewall.

Fortunately, a new solution in the form of hybrid on-premises and cloud collaboration platforms is taking shape. These platforms combine the familiarity and benefits of on-premises collaboration tools, such as low-latency and high-speed transfers, with the ubiquity and scalability of cloud-based platforms that integrate seamlessly with corporate directory structures, security schemas, and access methods and protocols.
