These last few months have made for an exciting ride at Egnyte. Not only have we launched a major expansion to our product portfolio — tackling a $25 billion in annual data loss challenge within the industry — but just weeks later we have been named Leaders in Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for EFSS!

Given that you’re reading this article, you probably have some understanding of the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) space. For a quick primer on EFSS, take a look at EFSS 101: Understanding File Sync and Share for Enterprises. Businesses have varying file sharing needs. Large, multi-regional businesses need to synchronize folders across a large number of sites, whereas small businesses may only need to support a handful of users in a single site. Construction or advertising firms require sharing and collaboration with very large (several Gigabytes) files. Financial services or healthcare providers have stringent compliance requirements.

Egnyters on the 4th of July

Posted by on Jul 6, 2016 in Community | 0 comments

As other contributors have alluded to in past blog posts, Egnyters work hard when it’s time to work and play hard when it’s time to play. Over the long 4th of July weekend, we checked in with a few teammates to see how they were celebrating. On Independence Day, enjoying a cookout is a sacred tradition. Sales Development Representatives Anna Lazar and Terri Tan honored it, attending one in San Jose. “We had BBQ Chicken and Short Ribs, absolutely delicious. Sat with our feet in the pool and enjoyed the sun. Lots of smiles when you’re with good friends, good music and good weather.” UI/UX designer Angela Ng kept the cookout...

Blockchain Applications for Egnyte

At Egnyte, we’re always keeping an eye on new technologies that might help us refine the user experience. The latest blip on our radar is blockchain.

These new transactions create timestamped blocks, and each block contains the hash value of the one before it. The ultimate result is a hash-based proof-of-work chain, that can’t be tampered with unless attackers redo the whole proof-of-work. The implications for finance are very exciting. In a sense, blockchain is one of bitcoin’s major...

A Milestone in the Egnyte Journey

Posted by on Jun 6, 2016 in Company Updates, Featured, In the News, Product Updates | 0 comments

Today marks another major milestone for Egnyte. Since our founding in 2007 we have set our sights on partnering with organizations to improve workflows by offering the most choice and focusing on being enterprise-first. In the early days of Egnyte the idea of the cloud was not yet mainstream. While some visionaries were betting the cloud would radically alter how data moves in and out of organizations and disrupt long-established technology players, this was not yet accepted as a foregone conclusion. For our part, we took the path of hybrid, urging companies to embrace the cloud, but do so at a pace they are comfortable with, all the while betting...
