10 Unique Egnyte Features


Learn what sets Egnyte apart from the crowd. These distinctive Egnyte features are crucial for your business to run efficiently and productively.

  1. Modify or deny permissions at any level of the folder hierarchy.

    Granular permissions enable customers to organize their data in ways that replicate existing on-premises permissions. Create folders for groups in the organization and sub-folders for specific sets of sensitive data. 

  2. Work on your files without using your local hard drive.

    Egnyte Desktop App allows users to continue working on their desktop while files are stored in the cloud. You can even sync folders for offline access so you're never without important files.
