2015 - Cloud storage solution Egnyte adds file auditing, intelligent distribution to win over Google Drive


Egnyte announced a couple of upgrades to their hybrid storage solution, including intelligent file distribution, which can determine the best place to put a file based on usage and IT policies. They also announced a new file auditing feature that lets IT track a file wherever it goes, a feature that puts it on par with many of its competitors. Egnyte is part of the popular enterprise file sync and share market, which includes Box, Syncplicity, Dropbox and a host of others. Egnyte has always tried to differentiate itself from the pack by forgoing an all-cloud solution, and offering a hybrid approach, which lets customers store files on-premises or in the cloud.
