Top UK IT publication and leading cloud conference recognises company as emerging market leader

LONDON, UK – July 8, 2014— / — Egnyte, the provider of the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise file-sharing platform, has been awarded the coveted Best Cloud Data Centre & Storage Solution at the seventh annual Cloud World Forum. The award follows the company’s recent announcement of the opening of its European Headquarters in London.

Egnyte Co-founder and CEO Vineet Jain commented, “We are thrilled to receive this award as recognition of our approach, which provides organizations with an enterprise-grade file-sharing solution that enables access to 100% of their files with the ability to leverage existing on-premise storage investments. It’s great to see our work here is already turning heads so soon after our European launch. Receiving this award alongside the likes of Microsoft and Amazon shows we’re clearly making a firm impression on the market and among our industry peers.”

Presented by Bryan Glick, Editor of Computer Weekly, Egnyte beat competition from Spanning Cloud Apps and Zadara to further cement its place as a leader in enterprise storage and file sharing. Egnyte’s platform is built from the cloud down as an enterprise solution. Unlike other cloud storage solutions, which are optimized for consumer usage and suitable for less secure and less traceable sharing of smaller files, Egnyte works within corporate reporting structures, infrastructure and policies. Egnyte is a truly IT-friendly solution because the data stored is kept under the supervision of the IT teams, yet offers an experience at least as user friendly as consumer rivals.

The event organiser of the Cloud World Series said of Egnyte’s latest recognition: “From what we have seen of Egnyte, it has a solid, flexible and enterprise-ready solution ready for UK and European businesses to deploy. The capabilities which assures the protection and storage of sensitive businesses data should not be ignored and Egnyte’s strong global customer base of 40,000 businesses says a lot about the quality of the product. We welcome the company as it expands its operations in the UK over the coming months.”
