What our Instant Web File Manager can help you with?

No need for a VPN

Web file manager lives inside a web browser and communicates to the backend servers via HTTPS protocol. The communication channel doesn't depend on a VPN, nor does it come with the clumsiness of setting up a VPN.

No need to install

You are uploading, downloading, editing, and managing files and folders with a web browser. There is no need to install the software first on a remote computing device as long as it has a web browser.

File server integration

With native file server integration, the file server network shares and drive-mapping contents show up inside a web browser the same way they would show up on a mapped drive—no extra training required to understand.

Gladinet gives your enterprise secure file share access without VPN by adding secure web channels to your Windows file servers. Remotely editing and sharing files from within a web browser becomes simple and yet safe. Your data still stays on the same file servers, and the file servers gain web browser access capabilities.

A complete solution with a web file manager

Self-Hosted Web Access

With the Gladinet solution, the file-sharing solution is interoperable with existing file server network shares. It comes with Active Directory integration, cloud drive mapping, global file locking, and the NTFS permission control integrations. All these native integrations make the file-sharing solution more like an extension of the current file server instead of another data silo that takes data away.

Mapped Drive

Mapped drive over HTTPS channel to the corporate file server is a crucial feature. Employees are familiar with a mapped drive, and no additional training is required.

Active Directory

Corporate users already have corporate identities in Active Directory and related Active Directory federation service and SAML single-sign-on. They don't need yet another set of credentials to access a file-sharing solution.

File Locking

Most of the file-sharing solutions offer manual file locking in the forms of "file check-in" and "check out." Gladinet provides automatic file locking by detecting file opening requests. When Microsoft Word is opening a file, the file locking process will be initiated automatically and finished automatically when the file editing finishes.

File Permissions

Finally, the ability to integrate with Active Directory and NTFS permission makes it so much easier for system administrators to set up the permission control. The permission features make the Gladinet solution stands out among the peers.

Secure Remote File Access

Gladinet adds cloud functionality to your file servers by fronting your file servers with web technologies. As a result, you can access files and folders from a web browser and mobile applications.

Reduce VPN Support

VPN is clumsy to use for the end-users and, at the same time, trigger support cost. By leveraging web technologies such as web file manager and the communication is redirected from VPN to web channels such as over HTTPS protocol, the VPN support cost goes down dramatically.

Meet Compliance Center

Gladinet provides compliance center features to help companies meet their security requirements and compliance standards such as FIPS, FINRA, HIPAA, and the EU Data Protection Directive GDPR.

Stop Data Breaches

The solution prevents ransomware or other cyber threats with built-in Ransomware Protection features. It disables downloading and sharing while allowing secure data room viewing and sharing.

Collaborate in Office 365

Our secure file sharing software integrates with office 365. It enables enterprises to remotely edit and collaborate on documents within a browser window or Office Mobile apps on iOS or Android, using Office Online while keeping files stored on their own company's server.
