“Egnyte allows colleagues to instantly access files on their tablets and mobiles. They’re not chained to their laptops and can work anywhere. At the same time, we don’t get any more requests for VPN access—which gives IT one less thing to manage or worry about.”

Challenge

Retrophin is a San Diego, CA-based biopharmaceutical company that develops life-changing therapies for people living with rare diseases. When it transitioned to a primarily remote workforce in 2015, it needed to keep its work moving forward at the same speed.

Solution

After a thorough test of cloud-based solutions, Retrophin migrated all corporate files and private folders to Egnyte. The team chose Egnyte because the platform gave them the ability to enable a productive remote workforce while increasing data security and governance.

Results

  • Greater performance and productivity across a global remote workforce
  • Secure collaboration with global teams and partners outside of physical offices
  • Enhanced information governance and compliance support no matter where their data resides or travels
“Compared to the other solutions on the table, Egnyte offered considerably better performance, allowing us to decrease storage costs while increasing data tracking capabilities.”
