RSA Conference 2018 - Egnyte, the leading cloud provider of smart content collaboration and governance, today announced the expansion of its Egnyte Protect solution, launching new functionality for the Microsoft ecosystem. Egnyte Protect allows businesses to classify and monitor content across Microsoft repositories, including Windows File Servers, Sharepoint, and OneDrive. Customers will be able to find content with custom keyword search, create classification policies, and enable real-time policy violation and alert notifications.

“Egnyte Protect is changing the way data management and data protection have been done in the past. As the only SaaS-based solution in the space, Egnyte Protect does not require hardware infrastructure and can be deployed within just a few hours, creating a very quick time-to-value,” said Jeff Sizemore, VP of Governance and Compliance at Egnyte.

“Expanding beyond our Egnyte Connect environment and into the Microsoft ecosystem is just the beginning. We will continue to develop the Egnyte Protect functionality into other popular content repositories, such as Amazon, Dropbox, Google, and more.”

With over 85% of businesses utilizing one or more Microsoft repositories as a part of their digital workplace, expanding Egnyte Protect’s functionality into the Microsoft ecosystem was an important next step to take. Egnyte Protect + Microsoft customers are now able to centrally manage all of the content that lives across multiple Microsoft environments, protecting what matters the most without sacrificing productivity.

Egnyte Protect for Microsoft plays an important role in compliance as well, as the solution is built from the ground up to help businesses comply with strict industry regulations like GDPR, HIPAA, GLBA, PCI-DSS, and more. Egnyte Protect allows businesses to monitor the exposure of sensitive data by identifying pre-defined markers, such as PII (personally identifiable information), and empowering them to properly quarantine the content so they can avoid any potential fines or sanctions for non-compliance.

Egnyte will continue to build on its Egnyte Protect for Microsoft functionality, introducing additional access control features in Q3 FY18. The upcoming functionality will identify abnormal permissions and anomalous download behavior in real-time. This will alert administrators to investigate potential breaches or theft before the data is lost, combatting both insider and outsider threat.

Egnyte has recently been named a representative vendor in Gartner’s 2018 Market Guide for File Analysis Software. Download a complimentary copy of the report here.
