Egnyte Enterprise for iPad App Provides Secure File Sync and Share
File sync-and-store firm Egnyte next week is introducing an iPad 2 enterprise app that provides mobile data security, access to files whether or not the iPad is connected to the Internet and file management services such as version tracking and access rights. Egnyte, which just closed on a $10 million round of series B funding and competes with similar services such SugarSync and Dropbox, is offering a dedicated enterprise app on the heels of Apple's demonstration today of the iPad 2.
iPad in the enterpriseEgnyte CEO Vineet Jain said the firm's move into the iPad app space underscores the rapid clip at which the tablet is being used in the enterprise. "We had not anticipated how fast and widely it would be adopted. We are amazed at what our larger accounts are saying. There has to be a robust iPad app in place for a complete 360-degree view or it's a deal breaker," he told EnterpriseMobileToday.com.
The Egnyte Enterprise for iPad app allows access to corporate files with or without Internet connectivity and prevents employees from having to lug their laptops around to get their jobs done. For instance, using the Egnyte iPad application on an iPad when working from home prevents an employee from having to bring a business laptop back and forth between the office and home each day. The employee can leave the corporate laptop at work and use his or her iPad to access files when working remotely.
