Synchronize files, simplify collaboration, eliminate errors, and decrease bandwidth usage. Files can be located anywhere in the world, even in the cloud, providing remote file access from anywhere. Reduce 95% of network traffic by transparently replicating files between servers or desktops on any scale, while boosting performance. With the WAFS Vault, there’s no need for a backup solution in every office. All locations save their documents to the Vault.

Synchronize files anywhere in the world

Globalscape simplifies collaboration with a wide-area file sharing solution (WAFS) that can work across domains between multiple organizations. End users access their files from within Windows Explorer or other Windows file system locations, just like always, whether the file is located in New York or New Delhi.

Save time, money, and frustration with WAFS

WAFS simplifies collaboration and allows you to easily locate files, eliminate errors, and decrease bandwidth usage. WAFS eliminates slow, cumbersome collaboration and helps you avoid project delays, budget overages, and angry clients.

Easy access. No lost documents.

The Vault guards against data loss and corruption by saving both current and past uncorrupted documents for easy access. If a file is deleted or becomes corrupt, an administrator can securely retrieve files from the Vault history. You can also access previous versions of files to track changes. The Vault makes remote file access and tracking easier than ever.

WAFS provides real-time data for real-time business

WAFS prevents files from being altered by multiple people at the same time. As soon as you open a file, WAFS locks it, preventing anyone else from altering it. (Others can open a read-only version.) Once you’ve saved your changes, the lock is removed, and the alterations are replicated in real-time within the Vault.

Work offline with automatic file synchronization

Continue working on documents offline by accessing them on your desktop. When the Agent goes back online, it performs an initial synchronization with the Vault. If more than one person changed the file while the network was offline, WAFS allows the admin to choose which version to keep, or to start from a previous version.

Fast LAN speed for remote file access, replication, and sharing

File replication ensures that current files are accessible anywhere on the WAN. And when you pair Autodesk® Revit® Worksharing capabilities with WAFS by Globalscape, users from locations around the world can access and share files over a WAN at local-area-network speeds. This means faster and more reliable element borrowing and multi-user access to entire worksets. When it comes to executing the world's biggest, most complex projects, explore how WAFS offers large-scale data replication solutions in the whitepaper, Combat File Sharing Risk with WAFS by Globalscape.
