Egnyte and Synology Offer the Power of On-premises and Cloud Storage

Egnyte, the provider of the most comprehensive file-sharing platform for the enterprise, has signed an agreement with Synology, a network attached storage provider.

This new collaboration and product integration will allow mid-sized businesses with complete file-sharing and storage capabilities by including the power of Egnyte with Synology's high performance NAS products.

Both the companies will showcase this new technology integration at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)), which is scheduled for January 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. This integration offers business a secure local, off-line and cloud access to files from anywhere, anytime, through any device.

Jason Bonoan, product marketing manager at Synology America Corp. said in a statement, “We're thrilled to be working with Egnyte for this integration as it provides our customers with an enterprise-grade file-sharing application through our Package Center, combined with the strength of our award-winning storage solutions. The ability to share files through the cloud with the combination of Egnyte and our Synology DiskStation NAS allows better network bandwidth and enables options for our customers to easily and securely share their business files both inside and outside of the office.”

The users can create and collaborate on files and then securely sync those files with Egnyte through the cloud to a Synology DiskStation NAS.

Businesses of any size can deploy Egnyte on multiple Synology DiskStations across numerous offices, enabling the ability to connect them together less than one central access point. With this integration, business doesn’t need to set up and maintain new infrastructure to provide secure file sharing beyond the firewall.

Bart Giordano, senior director of business development at Egnyte said, "The cloud is not enough when it comes to sharing and storing business files, and this partnership is a testament to the unique power of our platform to enable the best combination of on-premise and cloud sharing capabilities."
