These programs focus on connecting Egnyte users and IT departments with critical best of breed solutions and technologies that will enable them to get their jobs done more effectively and efficiently.

As IT grapples with how to implement their cloud strategies, it has quickly become evident that they need to think about what affect it will have on their overall infrastructure.

The EgnytePlus Partner program has created an ecosystem of solutions from leading vendors.

"Egnyte takes security of customer data seriously, and the combination of our solutions allows customers to take advantage of cloud storage while maintaining control of their sensitive data. We believe this addresses a vibrant and rapidly growing use case."
