Model N supports the complex business needs of the world’s leading brands, including over 49,000 and their management of billions of dollars of revenue.
“The biggest business implication for Model N has been increased productivity and cost savings. Egnyte allowed Model N to consolidate platforms while adding functionality to achieve increased productivity and efficiency across our global operations,” said Dan Willman, senior manager of corporate IT at Model N. “Our employees can use single sign–on, easily access and transfer files no matter where they are stored, and collaborate with a wide range of applications, all from within our more secure Egnyte Connect environment. Having Egnyte Connect in place allows us to better serve our own clients with strategic end–to–end solutions.”
As a rapidly growing global organization with eight office locations across the United States, Europe, and India, as well as operations in over 100 countries, it is important for Model N to maintain proper visibility and control over all of their files while enabling international access. Egnyte Connect provides the following solutions to create a secure digital workplace for Model N’s global collaboration:
Hybrid Infrastructure – Cloud & On–prem is vital to global operations for two reasons, security and performance. Local speeds when downloading and uploading large files. Sensitive files can stay behind the firewall in on–prem storage, while non-sensitive information can live in the cloud.
Subfolder Permissioning – Going beyond the folder level, subfolder permissioning allows IT to restrict access to individual files and individual users, which is vital when collaborating internally and externally all over the world.
Smart Auditing & Reporting – Real–time audit reports provide insights around file and user activity, giving Model N the ability to monitor the security of their content while also optimizing its performance.
“In highly regulated industries, like finance, it is paramount for us to be able to provide a solution that meets our customers’ stringent security requirements while still providing a user friendly experience for their employees,” said Rajesh Ram, co–founder and chief customer officer at Egnyte. “Model N’s use of Egnyte Connect is a great example of how we can deliver on both sides of the business, giving IT the granularity they need to maintain proper visibility and control, while providing employees a user–friendly experience that improves their productivity.”
