Take Your Data Mobile With Egnyte
There’s a new trend in the business world – businesses are beginning to do more work remotely and online. Working from home or away from your team/co-workers is becoming a viable option for many companies (Zincubate included), and data storage is important. When you have employees working remotely, it’s important to have a reliable service for your data storage needs.
Egnyte (if you need more background, check out an overview of Egnyte here on Zincubate) is a perfect solution for cloud storage for your company – whether you’re 5 people big or 10,000 people big. In addition to their awesome security system and availability of files to you at anytime/anywhere, Egnyte also has a system of great mobile apps to keep you connected to your data no matter what (a workaholic’s dream and nightmare).
Smartphone & Tablet Takeover
Almost half of US adults own smartphones. If you’re a business owner, chances are that you use one for multiple purposes. From making a simple phone call to video chatting with relatives across the country, smartphones and tablets are taking on lives of their own as a way in which we communicate. Accessing information has become increasingly simple, and Egnyte takes full advantage of this with their mobile apps.
If you’re a paid Egnyte user, you can download Egnyte mobile apps for free. These apps are available for almost every mobile platform you can think of: iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble’s Nook, Windows Mobile and HP WebOS. Certain features are available on certain platforms, check out www.Egnyte.com for a full checklist of features.
Do More With Mobile
There are some cloud storage companies that offer mobile apps, but they often only allow read-only documents. With Egnyte, you can simply do more. Using Egnyte’s mobile apps, you can share files, edit files, upload email attachments, use network printing, upload media, use overhead projection (currently only offered through the iPad app), and more!
It’s been noted that through the Egnyte mobile app for iPhone you can access files whether you are on a Wi-Fi or 3G connections. You can save and store files for later – this is perfect for the travelling businessperson (or for those that just have mediocre service from time to time). If you’re looking for a specific file, the Egnyte app also offers an awesome search function so you can find it within a matter of seconds.
Going mobile can often bring up questions and concerns about security – it’s a justified response given recent technology breaches showing up in the media. With Egnyte, their mobile apps are backed by their comprehensive security system (check out this post for more information on Egnyte’s security practices). With Egnyte’s mobile apps, every user is authenticated through the 3 main forms of identification: username, password and domain. Through Egnyte’s security measures, you can rest easy knowing your files are safe – even with mobile use.
Mobile apps are just another benefit offered by Egnyte to its customers – should something come up (as it always does at the most inconvenient time), your data and files are there for your access 24/7.
