File-sharing service Egnyte announced that the latest version of its solution unifies Google (GOOG) Drive's document collaboration with Egnyte's enterprise storage and sharing.

Egnyte's latest release provides end users with one simple view of all the files they need, including Google Drive, Microsoft (MSFT) Office, CAD drawings, images, multimedia, etc., enabling them to access those files from anywhere, whether that's in the cloud or via on-premise storage.

The IT department also has complete control and visibility over these files, with centrally managed access permissions as well as real-time auditing of all file, folder and login activities.

Egnyte CEO Vineet Jain said in his prepared remarks that needed files can live anywhere in an enterprise.

"Our unique hybrid approach provides a unified namespace for all these files, no matter where they reside," he said. "This new Google Drive integration makes enterprise users even more productive by providing a single, simple view into all files they have access to, no matter where those files are located — on-premise, in the cloud, or in Google Drive."

Additionally, users can now store Google Drive and Microsoft Office files side by side inside their secure Egnyte folders to create a unified namespace of their files across their smartphones, tablets and computers, the company said.
