Egnyte is the only file sharing platform that adheres to data gravity – the simple idea that not all files were meant to be “up in the cloud”. Egnyte provides deployment models that solve all enterprise file sharing use cases: cloud-only file sharing (upload files from any computer or mobile device to the cloud for secure file sharing), remote access to files stored on-prem (remote and mobile access without the files or file metadata passing through the cloud), fast local file access while in the office, and cross-office collaboration through site-to-site sync of heterogeneous storage devices (users directly access local files in their office at LAN speeds; any file changes are automatically synced between storage devices across all offices) — all through a single unified platform. Unlike point solutions, Egnyte’s flexible deployment models solve enterprise issues of file sensitivity, file size, bandwidth constraints, and multiple types of users – all while leveraging existing infrastructure, folder structures and permissions. Founded in 2007, Egnyte is based in Mountain View, California and is a privately held company backed by venture capital firms Google Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Floodgate Fund, and Polaris Venture Partners.
