Best Varonis DatAnywhere Alternative

Battle Card
Replace Varonis DatAnywhere with true windows server cloud enablement. With remote web access, secure file sharing, always-on cloud drive mapping and file locking with centralized group policy and audit reports, it is the best DatAnywhere alternative in 2020!

EFSS is a Commodity. Innovation is not!

Varonis DatAnywhere is an Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) with many competitors. Almost all file sync features and file sharing features are commodity features.There hasn't been much development since announcement of the Varonis DatAnywhere End of Life (EOL) plan a couple years ago, and that is more than enough to leave DatAnywhere behind. In the meanwhile, CentreStack continues to innovate with cloud drive mapping, cloud file locking, centralized policy management and reporting. There were so many areas to improve from enhance usability to simplify management. Innovation moves on!

Best Alternative to Varonis DatAnywhere

CentreStack excels in providing private self-hosted on-premise file sync and share solution. The solution is built on top of the Microsoft Web Platform, including Windows Server, ASP.NET, and Internet Information Services (IIS). The benefit of leveraging pure Microsoft technology stack is that it works natively with the Active Directory, the NTFS permissions and the Windows file server shares. As an end result, file access and permission checks are all natively done with all-Microsoft components, which is a most-tested combination out there in the field. There are other solutions that may run on a Microsoft Windows Server platform but was built with Apache web server and other non-Microsoft technology, which have less compatibility and less interoperability to Microsoft components. True Windows file server cloud enablement is very important to be the best solution on Windows.

NTFS Permissions

In CentreStack, NTFS permission is integrated natively so mobile access and secure file sharing follow the same security rules as on-premise LAN access.

On-Demand Sync

With CentreStack, on the client agent side, you can sync only files you are using and only files you are allowed to use.

Cloud Drive

In CentreStack, you have a drive letter to access files and folders, with permission check and file locking. There is no training required for users since everyone knows a drive letter.

More Permissions

For external users that are not in the Active Directory, the granular permissions can be assigned to different users at different levels of the folder hierarchy.

Selective Sync

CentreStack has selective sync allowing you to build up a local cache based on the hard drive capacity of the remote device.

Hosting Flexibility

CentreStack allows you to self host on-premise, or host in a private cloud with hybrid cloud file server setup for business continuity and ease the future private cloud migration.

Our customers say it best.
