2016 - Egnyte launched document protection service to win over OneDrive


Cloud file storage provider Egnyte found new ways to commercialize the data it collects as documents move through its system. The new service Egnyte Protect is a document protection tool that follows a folder or document across services.  Egnyte is not the first company to create compliance tools, but what makes it stand out a bit in a crowded market, is that it works across on-prem and cloud services giving companies this protection across a hybrid environment. What’s more, IT gets near real-time alerts should an unauthorized person try to access a restricted document.

2012 - Microsoft launched SkyDrive for Android to take on Egnyte


Earlier this month, Microsoft updated the online version of its file storage and sharing service SkyDrive (implemented the Metro-Windows-8 interface there), and today the company has released the mobile SkyDrive app for Android. It allows to access your files (including the files shared with you) from Android-smartphone or tablet, view and edit files in other applications, upload new and edited files back to the server. Besides this Android app, SkyDrive's mobile application works on iPhone / iPad and Windows Phone. Also, SkyDrive is by default built into Windows 8. Recall, SkyDrive competes with services like DropBox, Google Drive, SugarSync and provides 7 GB of free cloud storage, which is much larger than the competitors.
