Enterprises have a mandate to adopt the cloud to increase scalability, lower cost, and offer ease of use – all great reasons. But, they’re also inadvertently adopting a BYOC (bring your own cloud) environment. Employees unintentionally put business data at risk by using consumer solutions in the workplace without IT’s consent, which has forced IT to rethink the policies around security and privacy without diminishing productivity and collaboration.

Consumer-grade cloud solutions lack enterprise-caliber security and cannot adequately protect data from exposure to threats, such as Heartbleed, PRISM, MUSCULAR, and others. We believe businesses of all sizes need an enterprise-class cloud file-sharing and storage solution that offers layers of security that can be adapted to meet the needs of any business.

When evaluating an enterprise file-sharing solution, Egnyte recommends the following must-have features:

  • Secure access to files stored in the cloud and on-prem
  • Layered security using encryption (at rest and in transition), SSL, TFA and compliance with industry regulations
  • Advanced authentication and native MDM (Mobile Data/Device Management)

We’ve created a short video that outlines the top security controls an enterprise-grade solution should provide.

Please contact us if you would like to see a demo of our security solution on the Egnyte platform.
