Challenges

Relying on an aging IT infrastructure that included on-premise servers, a consumer cloud-storage solution in Dropbox to share content, and physically mailing portable hard drives to preserve and share 50 years of irreplaceable performances and artists’ information, Yamaha Corporation of America was putting its business at risk. While there was an IT recommendation for users on how and who should access the data, IT had no way to check if policies were being followed and, if they weren’t, no way to enforce them.

Solution

After testing multiple cloud-based solutions, Yamaha selected Egnyte to manage and secure content within its AWS environment, giving central control and greater visibility to IT administration. The company now has the modern solution to manage, share and secure its musical legacy while keeping business moving forward.
