Egnyte: Customer reviews & comments

Egnyte is the on-demand solution for SMBs and majority of customers feel the same. The price and the services provided by them reveal this matter. However it is not suited for personal use since they charge from them. Their competitors offer free plans for personal use. The users of Egnyte feel it has many excellent features which other cloud servers do not have. But the users feel it needs improvement. According to the review of pcmag.com “local cloud on NAS software does not work with all NAS vendors”.

Different users have different opinion on Egnyte.

Shane says “Simple, reliable, secure access to all my files on Egnyte. Perfect! One request: encryption for local cloud or option to disable since it stores on SD”.

Drifter says “I love egnyte but this app needs improvement. It needs access to the ftp files. Crashes a lot, but it's been a useful business tool”.
