Solution Offering

Egnyte was founded to deliver on-demand infrastructure for businesses that would scale from home office up to multi-office and departmental enterprise organizations. The management team has extensive experience in delivering enterprise software solutions, and architected HybridCloud to be the solution of choice for IT leaders. Users easily store, share, access and back up their files, while IT retains centralized administration and control to enforce business policies.

Egnyte HybridCloud is comprised of Egnyte Cloud File Server, and a local or private component, Egnyte Local Cloud. The local storage component of HybridCloud addresses the latency and offline access issues inherent in a public cloud solution. Fast local access, combined with robust security, allows businesses to replace traditional file servers using HybridCloud, avoiding the unnecessary expense and hassle of maintaining FTP services, VPN access and tape backups.


A company’s storage sits behind a firewall and provides fast, local access for employees in the office. But when remote employees or business partners need access as well, traditional solutions such as VPN and FTP are complex to set up and costly to maintain. They also don’t allow secure controlled access for the ever-expanding number of mobile devices, causing employees to bypass IT altogether.

How Egnyte Works

Bandwidth limitations and Internet connection outages limit traditional cloud storage solutions. EgnytePlus solves these problems by combining the accessibility and flexibility of cloud storage with the "in-the-office" experience and performance of local storage. With this approach, files in local storage are made available online. Files can be stored, shared and accessed from anywhere, with any computer or mobile device. This central collaboration hub allows multiple teams, offices and business partners to easily work together as if they’re in one location.
