The Egnyte platform is able to integrate with local storage, providing businesses with the option of using cloud-based storage or local devices, depending upon security preferences. Companies with satellite locations or remote employees benefit from Egnyte’s flexible deployment models, scalable file sharing, and high speed collaboration capabilities regardless of changes in bandwidth limitations across locations. Additionally, Egnyte’s platform makes use of hybrid storage synchronization, which reduces bandwidth saturation and increases performance.
Egnyte appeals to growing businesses because it offers customizable services and flexible file sharing solutions.
