What are the best aspects of this product?
The Hybrid Cloud feature tailors our needs really well. Since a bulk of our users are situated in the main headquarters, our satellite offices make it easier for other international usrs to gain access to the same data. Our users can acquire local speeds in accessing bigger data. Our satellite office users can have access to the same data via local folder syncing or choosing their preferred web client (for bigger files). File management is a breeze since it's all a matter of assigning groups to user and handling folder permissions.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
At the moment, I only have one major issue. And that's seen in their latest versions. Egnyte has zero solutions in managing the syncing process. This can pose a big problem when the sync queue is backed behind bigger files. There's no option for pausing, prioritizing, or re-ordering sync management.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
As previously mentioned, Egnyte is a great way of putting out data worldwide. Running a small-szed and non-techn firm, we don't have the capacity and budget in employing an IT team (since I'm the only person involved). Having the ability to outsource these issues to the platform ensures our users have access to data. If necessary, we can even go as far as installing an on-site NAS just to so they can run on local data speeds.
