Egnyte enables organizations of all sizes to better protect and collaborate on their mission-critical data. The content security and governance platform has become particularly relevant amid high-profile data breaches, new data privacy regulations, and the shift to remote/hybrid work.

The Egnyte platform leverages the industry-leading AI engine to deliver a simple, secure, and vendor-neutral foundation for managing content across business applications, multi-cloud environments, and on-premises repositories. More than 17,000 organizations trust Egnyte to improve data security, facilitate compliance, detect and recover from ransomware threats, and boost employee productivity on any app, any cloud, anywhere.

The company stands at the intersection of two large market categories: data governance and content collaboration. The secure multi-cloud platform caters to high-performance and highly regulated industries, including Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC), Financial Services, and Life Sciences. It is also designed for the mid-market – where compliance, security, and collaboration must be automated and simplified for lean IT teams who can’t afford large enterprise security stacks.

How we are different

-Egnyte has a unique market offering since it’s at the convergence of collaboration and governance. The company was built on the principle of making it easy for any size organization or IT team to protect their data within the cloud no matter where they work. And with virtually every organization in a regulated industry, Egnyte helps companies meet stringent security, privacy, and compliance requirements. As Curt De Greff, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Parkinson’s Foundation, explained, “The Egnyte team has been great to work with and has become more than just a vendor. They’ve become a trusted advisor and essential resource for protecting our content.”

-Egnyte’s Advanced Privacy and Compliance solution makes data privacy management practical and affordable by establishing a unified view of all data across the organization, controlling data location and usage, and fulfilling compliance obligations. More specifically, the solution helps companies to conveniently manage data subject access requests, assess compliance and scope with specific regulations like GDPR or CPRA, create and review vendors’ technical assessments, and augment cookie consent capabilities.

-The company’s access governance capabilities also outmatch competitors. This includes identifying issues with permissions and sharing to ensure only the right people have access to sensitive information, auditing and streamlining permissions across content repositories for greater control and security, and spotting unusual user activity to prevent insider data theft and other malicious actions. Ultimately, this enables organizations to gain 360-degree insight into their content so they can make smarter decisions and respond to risks and opportunities across a wide variety of industry use cases.
