Egnyte, the premiere cloud provider of smart content collaboration and governance, today announced it has been named a Leader in the July 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS). The Magic Quadrant has recognized Egnyte for its completeness of vision and ability to execute for Egnyte Connect, its smart content collaboration solution.
According to Gartner, “leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand. They have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market positions as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus and invest in their offerings to lead the market and affect its overall direction. Leaders can be the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a significant, satisfied customer base and enjoy high visibility in the market. Their size and maturity enable them to remain viable under changing market conditions. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialized segments.”
“Businesses are always looking for new solutions to increase productivity and reduce cost while keeping privacy and security on the top of their priority list,” said Vineet Jain, co-founder and CEO at Egnyte. “We believe being named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant validates Egnyte’s ability to provide the market with a secure, collaborative content solution that can positively transform their digital workplace. Our open, hybrid architecture is what sets us apart and enables us to leverage content analytics to increase productivity, strengthen privacy, and maximize efficiency of cloud and on-premises IT environments.”
Egnyte attributes this recognition to a number of significant achievements over the past year:
“Gartner defines the enterprise file synchronization and sharing market as “A range of cloud-based or on-premises offerings that enables individuals to synchronize and share files (such as documents, photos and videos) among mobile devices and PCs. Sharing can happen among people (for example, partners and customers) within or outside the organization, as well as among applications. Smooth search, retrieval and access of files stored in multiple data repositories (e.g., file servers or content management platforms) from different client devices complement these offerings, as well as security, data protection and collaboration capabilities.”
