The Permissions Fiasco: Deconstructing Consumer-first File Sharing Solutions

Posted by on Aug 26, 2016 in Community, For the Techies | 0 comments

In an article recently published on CloudTweaks, Egnyte’s Chief Customer Officer Rajesh Ram discusses five key considerations for businesses evaluating file sharing solutions. The first of these five considerations, which is often overlooked, is whether the file sharing solution was architected for businesses. There are two categories of enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) solutions. The first consists of solutions that were built for individual users and then adapted for businesses – let’s refer to this category as ‘consumer-first’. The second category comprises solutions that were built from the ground up for businesses – let’s refer to this category as ‘business-first’. Consumer-first architectures pose numerous challenges for business, a significant one...

Egnyte + Envoy

Posted by on Aug 25, 2016 in Company Updates, Partners | 0 comments

Like many tech companies, we require all our visitors to sign NDAs, whether they are customers, partners, or potential new hires. With automated photo taking, badge printing, and legal agreement storage, Envoy has made office managers’ lives much easier. Visitors can quickly and securely sign an NDA on an iPad and get to business. But where do the NDAs go once signed? They should be stored in a central repository, easily accessible by all relevant teams. NDA access should be a seamless part of users’ workflow. That’s where Egnyte comes in. Integration in Action We’re particularly excited because this integration is a hand-in-glove fit. NDAs are legal documents requiring...

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

When Kim Mai and I first started Egnyte for Good, we wanted to share our passion for volunteering with all Egnyte employees. We have been pretty consistent with planning a volunteer event once a month, and encouraging the whole office to share opportunities. Lack of engagement is never really a concern; rather, because everyone has different schedules and interests, we were concerned about finding events that had widespread appeal. We’ve had some success so far! When Family Giving Tree sent information about the Back-to-School Drive to our Recruiting/Facilities Coordinator Nicole Chaukay-Costa, it seemed like the perfect chance to get the team involved. Our core values of passion and teamwork...

What Team USA is Teaching Us About Teamwork in Rio

Posted by on Aug 11, 2016 in Community | 0 comments

Team USA’s individual storylines at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio are endless. Venus Williams fighting for her 5th gold medal, Simone Biles’s epic floor performance, Katie Ledecky smashing her own world record in the 400m freestyle, Michael Phelps surpassing 20 gold medals and further distancing himself as the most decorated athlete of all time.

At Egnyte one of our core values is to “Encourage Teamwork”. As we continue to watch these Olympic games we are learning what it takes to succeed...
