Keep all your Files Together

Forgot if the file your client sent you was through an Egnyte upload link or as an email attachment? Not anymore!

Easily save the Gmail attachment file to Egnyte so it's available for editing in your productivity suite or ready for signature with your favorite eSignature application.

Eliminate Duplicates and Retain Versions

Egnyte’s innovative integration automatically flags files you’ve already saved, so you can avoid duplicates and save storage space.

Securely Collaborate and Share Files

Save files to a shared folder and they are automatically accessible to anyone with whom you’ve shared the folder. Now you’re all on the same page.
