What’s the difference between Evernote Premium and Evernote Business?

What if one of my team members already has an Evernote account?

For Evernote Business accounts that have been updated: If someone has an existing Evernote account, they should continue to use it for personal notes. When they join the business, they will create a second, separate business account to use for business notes.

For Evernote Business accounts that have not been updated: If someone has an existing Evernote account, we recommend that they use it to join the team's Evernote Business account. All of their personal notes and notebooks will remain separate from their business notes and notebooks. No one, not even the account admin, will have access to or control over any of a user's personal notes and notebooks, and the user keeps them even if they leave the business.

What happens to a user's notes and notebooks when they join or leave a team's Evernote Business account?

When a user leaves the Evernote Business account, they will immediately lose access to business notes and notebooks, since all business content remains within the Evernote Business account.

What is the monthly upload allowance for an Evernote Business account?

Each Evernote Business gets 20 GB monthly uploads shared across the company account + an additional 2 GB per user on that account.

For example, if there are four users on your company account, your team gets 28 GB shared monthly uploads. In other words, your team gets 20 GB + 8 GB (2 GB * 4 users) uploads shared across the account per month. Learn more >>

What security features does Evernote Business offer?

Our Evernote Business security features are outlined here.

Is Evernote data encrypted?

All communications between Evernote's client applications and servers is done over SSL so your password and all data is secure in transit. Evernote does not encrypt any data stored on your own computers and devices, however you can choose to set up encryption on your drives and devices yourself.

Does Evernote Business support Active Directory or programmatic user management?

Yes. Evernote Business connects with your current Active Directory or LDAP solution, letting you invite or remove Evernote Business users right from within your existing Administrative console. Services like Okta, the first provisioning partner fully integrated with Evernote Business, enable this simple user management in minutes.

Does Evernote Business support Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Yes. Evernote uses the secure and widely adopted industry standard Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0). This means that our implementation of SSO integrates easily with any large identity provider that supports SAML 2.0. We also support ADFS. Learn more >>

Is Evernote Business SSAE16 compliant?

The data center that manages our data is SAS 70 (Type II) and SSAE16 SOC-1 (Type 2) certified. The Evernote team and service has not gone through the formal process of SSAE16 certification.

Is Evernote Business HIPAA compliant?

Evernote and Evernote Business are not currently compliant.

Does Evernote Business provide version control or note history features?

Yes. Note history provides a snapshot of a note saved approximately every day, and allows you to roll back a note from Evernote Web or from Evernote for Mac or Windows. Learn more >>

Can I see who is making changes or moving content from business notebooks to personal notebooks?

Evernote’s activity feed inside the client will show you a list of recently-changed notes and who made them; however, you won’t see an itemized list of every single change.

Can I recover notes that have been deleted?

Deleted notes are stored in the business trash. If someone accidentally deletes a note, they can always restore it from within the business trash, even if they're not the team's account admin. Account admins can also restore (or permanently delete) notes from the admin console.

How do I deactivate my team’s Evernote Business account and what happens to the notes and notebooks in that account once it's been deactivated?

You can deactivate your team's Evernote Business account from the admin console on the 'Billing Information' page. It will remain active until the end of your currently paid billing cycle. Before you deactivate your team’s Evernote account, we recommend that you move any notes in business notebooks that you want to keep into personal notebooks, or create a backup file by selecting the notebook and 'Export Notes' as an .enex file on your computer. You will lose access to the business notes and notebooks once the account is deactivated.
