If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then Egnyte we are flattered !

Here at Storage Made Easy we have been touting the benefits of not selling YASS (Yet another storage Silo) and providing an ‘Enterprise File Share and Sync Fabric’ with a single control point / pane of glass for all files within a company for several years now, something that Egnyte cottoned onto and attempted to move its focus to only recently.

Cloud File Server Branding

We’ve been asked many times from our Cloud File Server clients how they can customise their accounts to incorporate a unique link and logo branding. I’m pleased to be able to day this is now live on the site. A short overview on how to do this below:

1. How to brand your Cloud File Server

Branding your Cloud File Server is straightforward, when logged in as the Cloud Admin, just navigate to the Option setting and upload your own logos. One will be use for the login screen and the other will be used for the logo icon in the top left when logged in. 

Any logos uploaded, if larger than the file sizes requested will be cropped.

2. Unique Link

Once you have updated the graphics you will be given a unique link to access your Cloud File Server for your company.

3. Branding complete

Once you have completed the branding exercise your Cloud File Server can be accessed using the unique home page and your brand will be displayed subsequently after login.

You can change this as many times as you wish.
