We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"From a small firm perspective, Egnyte Connect is simple, it is easy to get users up and running the same day, and I have nothing negative to say about the software. I can't speak to how Egnyte Connect would operate in a midsize company or even a large Fortune 500 company, but, from our perspective as a small business, it is fantastic.""Egnyte Connect is a great application to save files.""It's easy to move files around, even to, for example, SharePoint.""I like Egnyte's recovery features. When somebody alters a document, there are version controls, so we can roll it back to a different version number. The ability to restore the original copy has been priceless in a few instances where we needed to get information that would've otherwise been lost.""You can really do a lot of cool things with it in terms of being able to co-author and share documents with users that are not in your organization.""It provides a way to granularly choose which folders from the internet you want to sync to your computer. It is really useful for people who are working on teams that are working with files that are frequently changing. You can go in and pretty clearly see what changes have been made. It gives you a constant feed."

"Google integrates well with our system. G Suite has an open API, so you can connect any open system with Google capable of working with API. This is the main reason we use it.""Good search features, reliable storage, and quick thinking.""It is a stable platform. It is very easy to use, and most importantly, it is very easy to administer. It also gets up and running quite easily.""They are launching more and more features for mobile, which I understand our customers appreciate.""We value the collaboration levels that are offered. Having everything integrated in a single platform is a dream come true for us.""G Suite Enterprise is user-friendly, and the technical toolkits and other information are on the website. Additionally, the technical documents are comprehensive.""Valuable features of the solution are that it's simple and effective.""The user interface is fantastic. It's also available for the individual person, so that's also a great thing about it."

Cons
"The issue of my authorization token expiring pretty quickly was pretty annoying. On pretty much every update, it would expire on every computer. On every computer update, at the first opportunity, it would expire. When my computer got updated or the authorization got cut, my saved drives would get messed up. So, I had to reconnect them all. I was never able to set up a useful drive system with my local computer with Egnyte Connect. It would be a big improvement if there was a cached system so that when it loses connection, it can still save what kind of connections were set up, and when it reconnects, it repopulates all those. I don't know if that's even possible, but that's the feature I'd want.""It would be nice to see an integration of using an active directory to validate and authenticate users on our end as well as on the client user's end.""I would like to see a slightly more robust user interface for the desktop version. For example, it could be more seamlessly integrated with Outlook or other third-party solutions, so you don't have to leave one window to look at another.""As of right now, I have everything that I and my team need.""Before, when we were starting to use Egnyte, we were struggling with a lot of bugs with Egnyte desktop sync.""You cannot delete a file when you have uploaded it in error."

More Egnyte Connect Cons →

"It would be nice to have additional software, such as Microsoft Teams, since our basic edition, Google Meet, cannot record video.""The cost could be improved. It can sometimes be a bit confusing figuring out how we are actually being charged.""What needs improvement in Google Workspace is the Google Drive app, in particular, making the process of finding the shared and most used files and folders easier. The first time you get an invite to view a file or folder in Google Drive and you view that folder or file, it's pretty easy, but the next time you try to access it again, sometimes, it's a bit difficult to find what was shared with you. An additional feature I'd like to see in Google Workspace is the option to un-send messages in Gmail. Microsoft has a message recall feature, and this isn't available in Gmail, so it's the feature I'd like to be added to Gmail.""Google Meet can have a bit more functionality. It should show the views of more people. Right now, it shows just eight at a maximum, or six. When there are more people on the call, more than eight, everyone is not showing.""Some people complain that Google Mail is inflexible. It was advanced 10 years ago, but other solutions are cleaner and clearer.""Scalability is not as good as we would like.""Google Mail's spam filter needs improvement. If I'm sending mail to another email user, sometimes it goes to the spam folder, and they won't know unless they check because they aren't seeing it in the primary inbox. They may miss important emails. At the same time, I'm receiving spam that shouldn't go to my inbox.""Google Meet is a very good product, but it's not up to the mark if you compare it against other products like Zoom or Microsoft Teams."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "As far as I understand, licenses are associated with the Egnyte platform. There aren't any licenses associated with Egnyte Connect."
  • More Egnyte Connect Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "We normally purchase the license on a yearly basis."
  • "It's low in cost as compared to Office 365. There is an annual licensing cost."
  • "We pay a monthly subscription for the use of this solution."
  • "The pricing is very high, although I cannot tell if this is the result of the Indian vendors artificially inflating it."
  • "Approximately $6 per user, per month."
  • "The main challenge regarding startups with identity services is you could be on a platform that works well but the services are expensive. For example, Microsoft Azure costs approximately $30 per user which is expensive. You end up choosing a different platform, such as G Suite Enterprise because it is priced reasonably and is less expensive than other solutions."
  • "It's cheaper to run a couple of users in a Google platform than what it would be with Microsoft Exchange."
  • "The pricing is comparable, it's pretty decent."

Egnyte appeals to growing businesses because it offers customizable services and flexible file sharing solutions. Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty, with over 275 agents and employees spread throughout the Atlanta metro area, was struggling to increase the efficiency of staff communication. After working with Egnyte, Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty was able to develop a hybrid file sharing infrastructure that allowed for the syncing and sharing of large files, protection of confidential information, and a reduction in bandwidth use.

    Similar to G Suite, all Google Workspace plans provide a custom email for your business and include collaboration tools like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and more.
