More than two-thirds of current users of cloud-based online
file sharing (OFS) services are extremely interested in hybrid solutions and
cite flexibility and control over data as the top factor driving interest,
according to the latest study done by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).

According to the study, ‘The Demand for Hybrid Online File
Sharing Solutions’ ESG found that more than 69 per cent of respondent
organizations that currently use a cloud-based online file-sharing solution
said that they would be extremely interested in the ability to store some or
all of their data on-premises.

“The overwhelming number of hybrid deployments we’re
seeing across customers of all sizes speaks volumes about where the online
file-sharing market is headed,” said Steve Erbst, Egnyte VP Worldwide
Field Operations.

“Simply put, it’s a matter of providing customers with
a choice. The cloud is great for some data and use cases, but others especially
data sets that need to stay behind the firewall need to be addressed – and
accessed differently. That’s where Egnyte comes in and delivers a win-win for
everyone, including our customers AND our partners,” he said.

Justin Silva, senior manager at AppDynamics, explains why
the hybrid model works for his company: “The hybrid file-sharing model
that Egnyte provides allows us to have so much more control over our data than
we’ve ever had before. We are able to access and manage all of our data,
deciding what files we want to keep on-premises and what files we want to put
into the cloud. By giving us this enhanced control, Egnyte is enabling us to
share files company-wide, securely and confidently, on a daily basis.”
