EU–US Privacy Shield: Egnyte – as a further signal of the seriousness with which it approaches data privacy/security – has certified its compliance with Privacy Shield, which was designed by EU and US authorities as a framework for the safe, cross–border transfer of personal data from the EU to the US.

Even prior to Privacy Shield, Egnyte evidenced its commitment to the privacy of EU customer personal data via its voluntary compliance with the Safe Harbor privacy principles. The Safe Harbor framework was found void by the European Court of Justice in October 2015, and was later replaced by the enhanced Privacy Shield framework.
