On your storage.
Under your control.
Keep your files where they are – on your own storage infrastructure. Securely access, share and collaborate from where they are saved. You don’t need to copy anything to a third party provider, purchase an EFSS, or build a private cloud.
Collaborate without the cloud
FileFlex Enterprise includes powerful content collaboration platform (CCP) capability that does not use the cloud and does not duplicate or sync your content to a third-party server. FileFlex Enterprise enables productivity and content collaboration for individuals and teams inside and outside the organization from source locations on your own storage, anytime, anywhere, on mobile or on your desktop, using your favorite applications like Office 365 or Google Docs. Activity tracking, audit trail, version control, file locking, a unified workflow across devices, and simple, secure access make your teams more productive and protects your information.
Optional Intel® vPro™ platform hardened silicon-to-silicon remote access, sharing and collaboration – No cloud required
FileFlex has the option of using Intel® SGX platform hardened secure enclaves for encryption key generation to provide added protection at the deepest level – within the silicon itself – and ensure that shared data is not snooped or tampered with at any stage of access or transmission – even if the system is compromised.
Fully compliant privacy and security
FileFlex means no duplication, no third parties and files that are kept on your own storage in their source locations behind your firewall. This gives you a significantly reduced threat surface, a simplified storage structure and governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) under your control. Add AES 256 encrypted hybrid point-to-point communication, optional double-encryption, Intel SGX hardware hardening, two-factor authentication, device authentication, virus scanning, single sign-on (SSO), active directory integration, and operation and incident management and you have a solution offers a much lower risk posture. FileFlex brings you confidentiality, integrity and availability capabilities (CIA) with minimal impact on existing processes and infrastructure.
Under your control
Download the free FileFlex server and you are in complete control over secure remote access and sharing in your company. You control who is provisioned, who they can share with, how much bandwidth they can consume and what content and storage they can access. It is easy to deploy, easy to integrate, scalable, easy to manage, supports multiple locations and all storage options. And you can have it up and running in just a couple of hours.
Behind the firewall
Enable mobile access to terabytes of file share data that lives behind your firewall without the need for a VPN and without re configuring permissions. Your content stays on your corporate infrastructure and under your control. 100% access. No third parties. No duplication. No moving files in order to share. You will always know exactly where your data is and who has access to it … because you shouldn’t have to give up control, duplicate or move your data to get the benefits.
Easy to integrate and test
FileFlex Enterprise supports Microsoft Active Directory, LDAP and Single Sign-on. Connecting FileFlex Enterprise is as simple as installing the FileFlex Connector Agent on any server or NAS on your network. You don’t need to open any new ports, it takes only a few minutes to integrate, and testing is easy. If you ever decide to turn FileFlex off, there is nothing to undo, because you didn’t move, copy or duplicate any data. FileFlex is 100% risk free. Arrange for a free trial to test it with a small number of users.
Complete management toolkit
The FileFlex User Administration Panel makes administration of FileFlex Enterprise within your organization a breeze. Add/delete users, set permissions, manage the Access Control List (ACL) and add storage repositories on either an individual-by-individual basis or a grouped (department) basis. Assign storage to users on device, drive, folder or even file level granularity. Determine who can share outside the company and who can add their own storage options. Access logged activities and filter by user, date or downloads.
Easy to deploy, easy to use
FileFlex software is easy and fast to install and the presence of an administration console means it’s simple to add and manage users. The user client is clean and intuitive with guidance through interactive tutorials, training videos and demos. Furthermore, a support knowledge base and extensive help files are available, making deployment, use and adoption a breeze.
FileFlex is easily scalable from 10 to thousands of users. Users are simply added from the Administration Console either individually or in bulk through Active Directory or a simple .csv file import. Since all files stay in their source locations, you do not need to add more hardware infrastructure when you scale. No new storage. No new servers. No additional IT staff required.
Enterprise-grade privacy, compliance & data residency
FileFlex is the perfect software-only solution for organizations that need compliance with privacy and data residency requirements such as GDPR and HIPAA. It starts by keeping your organization’s files on the already secured storage where the files were saved – on your infrastructure and behind your firewall, allowing by permission, encrypted remote access to those files and then tracking usage.
Single Sign On (SSO)
Supports single sign on (SSO), SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) open standard and OneLogIn (a custom version of SAML) to streamline workflow, minimize phishing, improve compliance, provide detailed user access reporting and improve productivity by eliminating credential re-authentication and help desk requests.
Two-factor and device authentication
U2F universal two-factor and device authentication are extra layers of security designed to ensure that only authorized users can access your storage infrastructure, even if someone knows the password of one of your users.
As opposed to centralized cloud storage that requires transferring and storing duplicated files over the internet to a central data center located miles away, the decentralized cloud or edge computing architecture of FileFlex addresses the inefficiency issues of uploading, downloading and syncing subsets of data to the limited storage capacity of cloud servers.
Large Files. No Limitations.
Because FileFlex provides access to files in their respective source locations and then tracks usage, you can share files, collections or libraries that are MASSIVE. The size does not matter. It is just as easy to share a 1 TB digital media library as a 1 MB spreadsheet. Recipients simply view, stream or download (if allowed) only what they need.
Add secure remote access, file sharing and collaboration to your Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud providers. From a single-pane-of-glass, aggregate your multi-cloud providers. Securely cut, copy and paste between providers or on-premise storage. Supports Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure and Google Storage IaaS providers, as well as Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox and Box public clouds.
Create Virtual Data Rooms
Now with FileFlex, you don’t need to build or pay for expensive third-party hosted data room services. You can easily create as many data rooms as you like where files and folders of information can be securely and privately uploaded without cost by your associates, vendors, suppliers and clients. Files can then be either accessed in ‘view-only’ or ‘view & print only’ mode where downloading and electronic distribution of data room content is prohibited, or they can be accessed with full editing and collaboration rights. Permissions can even be further refined on a user-by-user basis.
The Perfect Addition to SharePoint
FileFlex Enterprise is the perfect addition to your implementation of SharePoint. If your implementation is on-premises, then FileFlex will provide remote access and collaboration to your distributed workforce and allow for sharing with external users. You don’t need to migrate your SharePoint to the cloud-based version, you don’t have to add external users to your SharePoint and you don’t need to use a VPN for remote access. If your implementation of SharePoint is cloud-based or on-premises, then FileFlex integrates SharePoint in a ‘Single-Pane-of-Glass’ to your entire corporate infrastructure.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
The migration to the cloud has been the driving factor for more data center capacity, which in turn is increasing energy consumption. According to the U.S. Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), data centers in the U.S. are projected to use a total of 140 billion kilowatt-hours annually by 2020, the equivalent annual output of 50 power plants, costing American businesses $13 billion annually in electricity bills and emitting nearly 100 million metric tons of carbon pollution per year.
Cloud storage is usually a sync or duplication of an organization’s storage. FileFlex is a disruptive technology that enables the distributed workforce to access files and databases over the Internet from source locations, without duplication to a data center significantly reducing the greenhouse emissions and carbon footprint of your organization. Further, by providing the tools that a distributed workforce needs, FileFlex can also decrease automobile and transit travel for even more reduction of greenhouse gases.
HPE Technology Partner

Go beyond the cloud with FileFlex
Supports all major platforms
FileFlex Enterprise supports all major platforms – Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and Blackberry for use on desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
Support for all storage options
FileFlex Enterprise supports all storage options – corporate servers, media servers, NAS, SAN, DAS storage, and FTP, Windows, Linux and Mac laptop and desktop computers, public clouds (Amazon, Azure, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box & OneDrive), as well as private clouds and any networked storage devices.
Support for multiple locations
Simply install the FileFlex Connector Agent on any server or NAS on the network of each location you want to access and connect to any storage in any location you have, anywhere in the world.
Aggregates all your storage in a single dashboard
The FileFlex client aggregates all storage repositories in a single dashboard no matter what the storage device is or where it is located, including public clouds such as Amazon, Azure, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive or Box – if allowed. All public cloud in-app activities are logged providing an audit trail of what was shared, downloaded or viewed, with whom and when for every employee.
Leverages your existing investments
Low cost, requiring minimal human or financial resources
FileFlex Enterprise’s software-only solution leverages your existing storage investments, infrastructure and IT resources. It is easy to deploy, and once deployed, requires very little maintenance.
FileFlex is a fraction of the cost of cloud alternatives because it does not require a service provider with an expensive data center and extensive security to store duplicate copies of your files.
FileFlex requires no capital expenses to deploy
If you are like most CIOs, you are being asked to do more with less. FileFlex Enterprise is purchased as a monthly service fee per user. You get all the benefits of payment structured as an operating expense (OPEX) versus a capital expense (CAPEX) and the respective treatments for tax purposes. There are no up-front costs. Instead, FileFlex is pay-as-you-go. You only pay for what you need and for the value you receive. Costs are reduced and shifted from capital expense to an operating expense, which saves money and looks better on financial statements.
