More Features?

The above are just some of the standard features included with all version of our Cloud File Server solutions.

Real Time Savings

The 20 hours per week is based on a very conservative five minutes saved per day over the course 230 working days a year.

Less Down Time

If you use VPN or remote desktop to access your files on the move, it’s still an extra step each day, when it doesn’t work, slows down or the application crashes because the VPN drops, that is more down time for your staff.

Less IT Issues

We have also seen clients that have our Cloud File Server solution have less IT support issues versus those with legacy solutions and even those using Microsoft SharePoint or Dropbox.


If your organisation is heavily regulated, then some of the advanced features will save your staff days per month. Those businesses that deal with large files, that are often sent to their clients, will find further time saving features.

Does your workforce visit client sites then update spreadsheets, take photos or edit PDF documents ? The mobile app can also streamline these processes on the go. That is why we’re confident on the numbers below.

5 things your current file server can't do

1. Audit Files

The File Audit Report includes information about the activities performed by each user on the files and folders in your domain, making it easy to track down various activities across your assets at a user level.

2. Lifecycle Management

Egnyte Secure & Govern helps you manage content throughout its entire lifecycle, based on your custom policies. You can specify document retention, deletion, and archival policies, which can be based on the location of the files or your document classification policies.

3. Compliance

Egnyte Secure & Govern can look for sensitive information in your files using content classification and help you identify folders containing such information.

4. Ransomware protection

Rapidly detect and respond to ransomware attacks and protect your sensitive data with behavioural and signature-based detection—all in a single platform.

5. Threat detection

43% of data leaks come from insider threats like employees, contractors, and partners. Insider breaches can occur at any time and be fatal to your business.
