This week we published a new On the Radar report about Egnyte, provider of a hybrid cloud/on-premise file sharing platform for businesses that enables files residing either in the cloud (its own, or third party) or in local storage, to be made available, controlled and administered through a central IT management platform.
Egnyte’s take on the enterprise file sharing conundrum is an interesting one, says Principal Analyst Craig Wentworth, because it overtly plays to a sense of ‘cloud pragmatism’ which the company claims it’s seeing in legions of customers who aren’t willing or able to fully commit to migrating all their data from on-premise storage (and therefore welcome a hybrid model that provides consistent management across both local and cloud stores).
You can read more about the platform’s capabilities and what Craig thinks about it and the company’s roadmap in the full report, available for premium subscribers to download right now (or you can purchase the report in our web shop).
This On the Radar briefing note follows a simple “ten questions” format, which we designed to provide a concise but thorough overview of a company and its products and services. We use this format to focus on the capability and suitability of small, specialist vendors – to help you build the best possible vendor shortlists when looking to make new technology investments.
