Egnyte Protect Overview

Egnyte Protect is Egnyte’s smart content governance solution. Egnyte Protect is comprised of two distinct services: Content Classification and Access Control. These services work together to ensure that you are alerted about any potential exposures of sensitive information in real time, allowing you to take proactive action to prevent costly data breaches.

Access Control

The Access Control service continuously monitors all of your content sources, both in the cloud and on-premises. Using Egnyte Protect, you can:

  • Identify issues with permissions and sharing to ensure only the right people have access to sensitive information.
  • Eliminate non-secure links and comprehensively review sharing with outside parties.
  • Audit and streamline permissions across your content repositories for greater control and security.
  • Spot unusual user activity to prevent insider data theft and other malicious actions.


Content Classification

Egnyte Protect looks for sensitive information in your files, based on what you deem to be sensitive. Built-in classification policies such as PCI-DSS and GDPR allow one-click configurations for compliance. Creating custom policies to identify information specific to your business is just as easy. A comprehensive list of locations containing sensitive information is updated in real time as new files are scanned. You can also drill down to review specific files and examine the sensitive content found within each file. This gives you a consolidated overview of where sensitive information is located within your content repositories.
