Works on all your devices

Filr has clients and apps for desktops, laptops, smart phones and tablets on a variety of platforms, including Microsoft, Linux, iOS, Android and many more.

A familiar feel

Filr gives users features like those on social media sites, blogs, and email systems. Users can comment, share suggestions, and send notifications to others using the document.

Automatic access for Open Enterprise Server or Open Workgroup Suite users

Filr is automatically included for customers with active maintenance on Open Enterprise Server or Open Workgroup Suite. Customers are entitled to use Filr based upon the number of users covered under their maintenance contract.

Integrate quickly

Filr integrates with your organization's existing directory services, either Microsoft Active Directory, Micro Focus NetIQ® eDirectory, or both. No schema extensions or directory reconfiguring required.

Take back control

Filr enables you and your IT staff to determine which users are allowed to share files, which files they can share, and with whom they can share them.

Leverage existing file servers

You’ve already set up your access rights, quotas, firewalls, backup and disaster recovery systems. Filr leverages all of that by working with your file servers and Active Directory or NetIQ eDirectory.

Access on-premises data from anywhere

Make users productive from day one. Filr gives users access to all their files and shared network folders from any device or location. Wherever they are, users can access files and folders as if they’re in the office.
