Collaborate Seamlessly with Egnyte and Google Workspace

Today’s organizations utilize a multitude of solutions to create, share and manage their sensitive content. That business reality is exacerbated by additional cloud file storage solutions that result from acquisitions, competing employee preferences, or shadow IT initiatives. So, it’s no surprise IT teams struggle to manage and control document and file system sprawl.  

Egnyte offers content governance and policy management in Microsoft 365, and now offers the same content governance features for Google Workspace. You no longer need to choose between robust classification, governance and policy management capabilities and the ease of use of Google Workspace—you can have it all.

Egnyte Integrates with Google Workspace

The Egnyte platform is fully integrated with Google Workspace, so users can create new Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files and save them directly to Egnyte. They can then browse their Egnyte platform and open and edit documents.

This solution includes the advanced governance capabilities of the Egnyte platform. File permissions are managed by Egnyte and are subject to Egnyte’s permissions, sharing, and security policies. Further, Egnyte’s audit reports record activity on these documents for direct review, or canbe integrated with SIEM tools if desired.

Collaborate in Real-Time with Google Workspace 

No matter where team members are located, they can collaborate in real-time using Google Workspace collaboration along with the benefits of Egnyte’s secure and easy file-sharing solution. All changes are automatically saved back to your Egnyte platform. It’s also possible within Egnyte to open and edit Microsoft 365 documents using Google Workspace’s editing tools and have those files saved directly in Egnyte.  

As a result, employees are no longer limited to a single work environment. Instead, they can use the environment they prefer, while documents are protected and managed using Egnyte’s advanced governance capabilities. With support for Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and native Egnyte collaboration tools, the Egnyte platform can support collaboration in the way that works best for your company.
