Cloud-based file sync and share service Egnyte has partnered with network attached storage (NAS) provider Synology to provide businesses with file-sharing and storage capabilities by combining Egnyte with Synology’s NAS products.

The partnership with Synology aims to provide mid-sized businesses with a single solution for secure local, off-line and cloud access to files from anywhere and through any device.

According to the company, the integrated solution offers the following benefits:

  • Users can create and collaborate on files and then securely sync those files with Egnyte through the cloud to a Synology DiskStation NAS.

  • Growing businesses can deploy Egnyte on multiple Synology DiskStations across numerous offices, enabling the ability to connect them together under one central access point.

  • Egnyte aims to eliminate the need to set up and maintain new infrastructure to provide secure file sharing beyond the firewall.

Egnyte Business Development Senior Director Bart Giordano told Talkin’ Cloud that partners now have the option to bundle a file sync and share service with the Synology NAS.

“Channel partners were previously doing a one-time sale, but now with the addition of Egnyte, they can offer a value-added service on top of that hardware and give themselves a recurring revenue stream,” he said.

“We’ve always been focused on business, from the SMB market all the way to the large Enteprise. Synology opens up a new channel for us into the SMB and mid-market” he said.

Giordano suggested that Egnyte isn’t worried about the overcrowded file sync and share market in 2014.

“Egnyte brings a complete platform to the B2B market that is unmatched by any competitor,” he said. “We are providing universal access to your files, regardless of whether they live in the cloud, on-premise, or a combination of the two.”

Today’s news follows on Egnyte’s $29.5 million funding round in December 2013 for global expansion.
