Reducing Human Error with Egnyte Protect’s Best of Breed Content Governance

Posted by on Aug 18, 2016 in Product Updates, Thought Leadership | 0 comments

While it’s tempting to feel like we’re under constant threat from hackers and external cyber attacks, the reality is most data breaches happen unknowingly within organizations. As Egnyte’s hybrid storage customers continually asked for help in content governance, we realized our approach positioned us to make it happen in a unique way. Egnyte Protect is our new smart content governance solution designed to help companies find, protect and manage content easily across repositories, even solutions outside of Egnyte like SharePoint or Windows File Servers. While Egnyte Protect required great team work, for me it represents an inventive and responsive approach to a truly difficult problem: human error. I’ve written before on the...

Egnyte for Good: Our Work with Family Giving Tree

Posted by on Aug 16, 2016 in Community, Events | 0 comments

Our core values of passion and teamwork...
