Compare and Contrast: Egnyte and SharePoint

In this post:

If your organization does not currently use tools that implement collaboration and content sharing, you may be missing out on imperative enhancements for business processes. Two of these tools are Egnyte and SharePoint. Both platforms have their own leading features and qualities, but as you are reviewing what is best for your organization, you may want to consider:

  • How will either platform integrate with our current systems and operations?
  • Which platform seems to have larger strengths for our industry?
  • What will appear to be the most user-friendly for our team?

Egnyte and SharePoint are considered to be two of the most distinguished cloud and content management solutions available on the market. This blog stacks each against each other comparatively to highlight their strengths, weaknesses, and their overall benefits to your organization’s structure.

Egnyte – Trustworthy, Secure, Compliant

Egnyte is a content management and file sharing cloud platform trusted to secure files, online and offline. Your organization can access company files via access points including secure web, desktop, tablet, and mobile applications or within third-party services like Slack, Salesforce, Gmail, and Microsoft Teams. Egnyte offers a “work from anywhere on any device” approach while ensuring security and compliance are top priorities.

SharePoint – Transformative, Scalable, Collaborative

Powered by Microsoft, SharePoint is a web-based, cloud content management and collaborative platform. There are many ways within SharePoint your organization can transform business processes by communicating as a team and integrating seamlessly with other existing, operating Microsoft 365 programs. SharePoint allows your organization to create a personalized, connected Intranet where your team can share files, data, and resources.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Because SharePoint is powered by Microsoft, all other programs will easily integrate. On the other hand, even though Egnyte also can be integrated with Microsoft products, it would act as a third-party integration, which is not as seamless as integrating two products built by the same company.

With the Microsoft 365 suite, your organization may already have SharePoint even if you are not actively using the platform. If this is the case, ensure there is enough base storage for your organization’s data. Requiring additional TBs of storage can become expensive, and SharePoint’s costs are higher.

Egnyte has anomaly detection and will alert your organization about insider threat risks proactively. With automated ransomware protection, your data will remain secure and protected against incoming threats. SharePoint also has major security features like access control based on user permission levels, two-factor or multi-factor authentication, data backup, and anti-malware protection.
