Metadata Intelligence

Structure enterprise content. Improve data visibility. Unlock hidden value.

Egnyte’s advanced metadata capabilities accelerate data discovery while keeping it safe behind the scenes

Unstructured business content has grown exponentially in the last decade, making it more challenging to organize, discover, and protect the files your users create. Egnyte’s advanced metadata lets you structure that data according to your business needs, set security policies based on that information, and glean meaningful context and insights from your data.

Control over unstructured data

Implement custom metadata and classification in a flexible, no-code approach, which delivers savings in time and resources, and liberates teams from the confines of the traditional folder structure. Egnyte's metadata intelligence provides faster access to data and more control over content.

We now have full visibility of all content across our business - who accesses it and how it’s shared.

Accelerate data discovery

With metadata intelligence, non-developer, line-of-business users are able to structure and organize content to accelerate data discovery and maximize productivity. This means identifying the right files among your various content repositories and applications.

When users can add rich custom data to files and folders and get quick access to the data they need, it can be put to work to solve business problems.

Better, meaningful classification

Sensitive data doesn't mean the same thing in every business. Egnyte's metadata intelligence provides robust customization and control over how sensitive data is governed.

Create custom security and data lifecycle policies based on custom metadata tags in Egnyte. Admins can monitor content, and control access to files and folders marked with custom metadata, expanding on Egnyte's powerful machine-learning classification engine. This is another way that admins and line-of-business users can identify, view, and manage sensitive data to improve security.
