Introduction to Egnyte for GSuite

What is Egnyte for GSuite?

Egnyte for GSuite extends Google Apps for Work with a full suite of file services. Organizations can easily implement admin-controlled collaboration, move file shares to the cloud, and leverage on-premises storage – all with the strictest levels of administration and control.

Why use Egnyte for GSuite?

By implementing Egnyte for GSuite, organizations are able to complement their Drive investments by allowing your organization to:

  • Enable Admin-controlled Collaboration: Egnyte enables Drive customers to implement a centrally administered folder hierarchy with complete visibility over data, users and access permissions. Admins can manage collaboration within certain departments or between employees and external business partners all while leveraging collaborative editing from Drive.
  • Make the Cloud Your File Server: Egnyte can migrate corporate file servers to the cloud while fully maintaining existing permissions and file share hierarchies. Unlimited Storage from Google Drive for Work lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO). Egnyte delivers group storage, group management and central administration for access and collaboration across departmental and group shares. Whether file shares are a few GBs or hundreds of TBs, Egnyte scales to match business needs.
  • Integrate On-Premises Storage: If your organization deals with large files, cross-office collaboration, limited bandwidth or manages sensitive files that cannot be stored in the cloud, Egnyte has the most comprehensive solution to integrate on-premises storage into Drive. Build out a hybrid architecture to overcome latency issues via Egnyte Storage Sync, and combat privacy concerns around file access using Egnyte Storage Connect.
  • Use a Global Namespace: With Egnyte and Drive, you can deliver the power of a single pane of glass to view, manage and access all files across an organization, regardless of where they are physically stored. Make Drive your universal cloud storage platform and integrate files stored on premises in your data centers, all with centralized visibility.
