Egnyte stands at the intersection of two large market categories: data governance and content collaboration. As a result, its content collaboration tool has evolved into a powerful cloud content governance platform for high-performance and highly regulated industries, including Financial Services and Life Sciences. Egnyte is for the midmarket – where compliance, security, and collaboration must be automated and simplified for lean IT teams who can’t afford large enterprise security stacks.

Egnyte’s cloud-native content governance 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. Egnyte’s unified content security, privacy, and compliance solution has become particularly relevant in the wake of recent, high-profile data breaches and new regulations, as well as the rapid shift to remote work.

The all-in-one solution makes it simple and easy for IT leaders to manage and control a full spectrum of content risks, from accidental data deletion and data exfiltration, to regulatory compliance, privacy, and much more – all while giving business users the tools they need to work faster and smarter, from any cloud, any device, anywhere.

In 2021, Egnyte made many significant enhancements to its ever-expanding product set that will change how all organizations fight back against ransomware. Egnyte’s Ransomware Protection solution can detect more than 2,000 ransomware signatures and threats immediately, in addition to automatically alerting admins of the infected endpoint. Living in a world where remote work is the norm and new ransomware groups pop up daily, Egnyte made Ransomware Protection standard for all customers to keep their data safe at every level.

In this hybrid-work environment, Egnyte enables companies 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 use cases.

How we are different

Egnyte has a unique offer compared to others in the market, being at the convergence of collaboration and governance. The Egnyte platform is a unified content security solution for mid-sized organizations with stringent security, privacy, and compliance requirements. Working closely with organizations in highly regulated industries, Egnyte helps each industry with their specific needs related to remote working conditions, large critical file sharing, low bandwidth working environments, and protecting high-value content.

In today’s remote work environment, content sprawl and threats are increasing, and organizations need a better way to control, access, and securely share critical content. The all-in-one solution helps not only increase content collaboration speed, but also reduces the risk of data breaches or loss. Egnyte provides usage reports to admins, allowing them to implement an easy and effective response plan should anything become compromised in a cyber incident. With ransomware attacks increasing, zero-day detection in Egnyte gives companies the tools to protect against new types of threats and potential attacks. If an attack does happen, the solution can identify the point of the first attack and restore files and folders to a time before the attack with a single click, making file recovery quick and easy.

Understanding how to extract maximum value from content is one of Egnyte’s specialties. With automatic document classification that identifies common language processing by document type, protecting sensitive documents with PII or financials is easy. With Egnyte, you can eliminate data ROT (redundant, obsolete, trivial), helping reduce the risk of keeping old, unnecessary documents in the organization. Policies are extremely important in highly-regulated industries, but how can you ensure the team is following procedure? Content safeguards in Egnyte allow organizations to protect sensitive data by automating safeguards when users try to share sensitive information that goes against organization policy.
