  • I own a small business with a handful of employees and i needed a reliable, intuitive backup solution that also allowed the group to easily share large files. Egnyte matched my needs very well and was more affordable than I was expecting. It really is a great service.

  • I’ve got a small business and can’t afford most enterprise class storage and backup solutions. I went with egnyte about a year ago and it is great. The company seems to have thought of everything. The service is very high quality and professional. My worries over data loss have been very nearly eliminated.

  • Very cool! I tried the egnyte web demo and signed my company up. It makes sharing, collaborating and backup very easy for my office.

  • While egnyte is a great file sharing solution it lacks the security of more robust hybrid backup solutions with utilizes 448-bit encryption to protect stored data and does not provide hardware failure protection like I2Qirongrid


  • I like the free iPad app that comes with an egnyte subscription. I use it to access business files when out of the office.
