Helps You Take Back Control

Novell Filr gives IT an enterprise-class alternative to the cloud-based file sharing services many users are leveraging under the radar. With Novell Filr, files are easily accessed and shared, but without leaving your on-premise file servers. Filr also allows users to share files both internally and externally. More importantly, Filr gives IT control over which files users can and cannot share. Filr provides two types of file sharing.

With external sharing, users outside your organization can view and edit documents based on rights given to them by your internal users. You can allow, disallow, limit or monitor external sharing.

With public sharing, people outside your organization can view documents through a URL, but cannot make edits or access any other parts of Filr. This is ideal for sharing marketing materials such as a press release.

In all cases of sharing, you maintain control over your organization's content. You can establish tight controls that ensure all files remain within corporate storage, or you can establish looser controls that allow different degrees of external access and sharing. Novell Filr gives you complete visibility into what is happening with your organization's files.
