2008 - Online file sharing service for businesses Egnyte emerges from Beta to win over SharePoint
Egnyte is a collaborative tool that worked closely with a user’s desktop to make file-sharing amongst team members an easier, more automated process. Egnyte is now stepping things up, adding more features that also target businesses, but offer a more complete solution for those teams that need to access files from various locations, and for those company’s that need to extend some of these file-sharing options to their clients. In essence, Egnyte is offering its service as a way to operate on a virtual basis, looking to eliminate the need for businesses to buy their own servers all together. The company is now launching a 3-in-1 solution that presents a hosting solution for online Shared Folders file storage, as well as web and desktop access to Shared Folders, and more admin tools to manage accounts and permissions.
