Egnyte is committed to building an ecosystem of solutions that help organizations collaborate more effectively and securely. Our ongoing work with Microsoft Teams, which already includes Egnyte capabilities throughCollaboration Tab and Messaging Extension, is an important part of this goal.
Now, we’ve extended our integration to allow organizations to further use Egnyte as a default cloud storage option, combining the powerful Egnyte content platform with Microsoft’s productivity and collaboration tool. “Egnyte’s cloud storage option builds on its existing Microsoft Teams integration and expands customer choice when it comes to productivity and collaboration,” says Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. “We’re pleased to see Egnyte’s ongoing commitment to Teams."
Teams is a collaborative hub that includes chat, meetings, calling, Microsoft Office 365 apps, and third-party tools. It can be customized to meet the needs of both teams and customers. It also features enterprise-grade security and compliance capabilities that are crucial for today’s businesses.
Egnyte provides a secure, cloud-based content platform that empowers the modern enterprise. It facilitates greater collaboration anywhere, from any device.
With Egnyte and Teams, organizations get a powerful, collaborative platform that empowers organizations to work in a more productive way. The benefits include:
A single, secure content repository that can be accessed anywhere, from any device
Fast access to all files, including very large files and all types of files
Access to files even in low bandwidth and remote locations
Smart synchronizing, caching, and encryption across content
Integration with industry apps
Access to files without VPN requirements
Centralized searches across all content and types of content
System-wide control and compliance across all data
Reduced infrastructure costs
How it works
Within Teams, users can select Egnyte as the default cloud storage option when working with files and selecting a storage of choice. Once Egnyte is selected, users need to enter Egnyte’s domain to get direct access. There is no need to add an additional application, since Egnyte is already an option. Plus, there are no incremental costs. This integration is available in the desktop, web, and mobile versions of Teams.
The Teams integration is one of many advances Egnyte has made to help organizations transform how they work. In the near future Egnyte will include an integration with Microsoft Flow, allowing companies to automate workflows within Teams and extend workloads further into Microsoft Azure.
Egnyte will continue to find innovative ways to partner with organizations that help to enhance the Egnyte infrastructure. Stay tuned as Egnyte continues to build new avenues of innovation.
