Challenge

Fast sharing of ideas and content from anywhere is critical for M&C Saatchi, and the company needed a more efficient way to share files, manage versions, and protect sensitive data. Without a central file infrastructure, designers and account managers were putting sensitive corporate content at risk by resorting to unauthorized consumer solutions such as Dropbox.

Solution

By replacing a disparate file infrastructure with the Egnyte platform in a hybrid deployment, M&C Saatchi now has real-time file synchronization across global locations, automated version control, and built-in business continuity.

Results

  • Efficient cross-site collaboration and greater productivity
  • Greater performance and security of data delivery across global locations
  • Over ₤25,000 in annual savings for storage maintenance by reducing server footprint and tape backup
“We are able to securely store, edit, and share files between multiple offices around the world without running into bandwidth, file versioning, or access issues. M&C Saatchi is a fast paced organisation and Egnyte keeps up, bottom line.”
