848’s in-depth local market expertise helps Egnyte to deliver enterprise-focused file sharing to UK businesses
LONDON, UK 25 June 2014 – 848, the expert providers of cloud and on premise technology to UK businesses, today announced the latest addition of Egnyte, the global provider of enterprise file sharing technology, to its partnership network. This partnership solidifies Egnyte’s offering for European businesses who want a more complete file sharing solution which can address all customer scenarios: whether it be cloud-only file access, on-premises storage access or a combination of the two.
Founded in 2010 in Stafford, 848 started out as a provider of support and services for Google Apps which has quickly grown to encompass further partnerships with IT juggernauts like Microsoft, HP and Salesforce today. 848 selected those vendors because they understood every end-user company had an existing IT strategy and any of the benefits of working in the cloud would need to be ‘folded into’ an existing budget cycle and set of decisions that had already been made.
Egnyte provides an enterprise-grade solution to address one of the hottest categories in IT today – enterprise file sync and sharing. Egnyte's partner program offers 848 the go-to-market flexibility needed when selling this solution, which equates to high-margin recurring monthly revenue. In addition, Egnyte's hybrid approach to file services enables MSPs to take advantage of continued on-premise storage sales as well as third-party software integrations, such as Google Drive and DocuSign.
"As a leading UK provider of IT services and support, Egnyte's enterprise file sharing solution enables us to provide our clients with a complete end-to-end collaboration solution," said Kerry Burn, Director of 848. "This partnership enhances our portfolio by providing the top-notch, flexible and secure cloud file management services our customers require."
"We're thrilled to have a partner like 848 in the UK," said Mort Jensen, Director of Channels at Egnyte. "848’s in-depth local market expertise helps Egnyte to deliver enterprise-focused file sharing to UK businesses. And because our solution addresses cloud-only as well as on-premise access needs, businesses can leverage their existing investments in on-premises storage. It’s great to have a partner like 848 who understands both scenarios. "
Formed in 2010, the 848 group has rapidly grown to become one of the country’s leading contemporary on-premise cloud vendors.
Utilising cutting-edge products from Microsoft, Google and many others, we are able to revamp UK businesses with a wide range of IT solutions in a number of key areas. Combine this with a management team that draws experience from some of the leading IT and consulting vendors in the world, the 848 Group is a structured, definitive and ever-evolving computing company with high ambitions and the right team to accomplish them.
Over 1 billion files are shared daily by businesses using Egnyte's unique technology, which provides the speed and security of local storage with the accessibility of the cloud. Users can easily store, share, access and backup files, while IT has the centralized administration and control to enforce business policies.
