About Novell Filr

Filesharing can be done securely: file access to existing directories and networks with any device and from everywhere thanks to the powerful virtual application Novell Filr for your file management.


Sharing files via internet is already common in our private lives. Storing photos or files in Dropbox or other free and public cloud services may be quite useful in the home environment – but in the case of business data it is simply not recommendable: Confidentiality and data security cannot be guaranteed and in most cases there is no data back-up.

Employees, however, expect to be able to use these practical functions of distributed working in their daily work, too. Before these employees take it in their own hands to look for ways and platforms you should offer them an alternative: With Filr Novell offers you a secure and powerful alternative for enterprises and organizations!

Novell Filr does not create a new infrastructure but being a virtualized VMware application it helps for a more efficient use of existing network folders and directories. By taking the existing authorization systems and the connection to Microsoft Active Directory or to NetIQ eDirectory into account, Filr complies with the security-relevant standards.
