With WAFS by Globalscape, distances and file size are no longer an issue, allowing end users across multiple offices to access and share files over a WAN at LAN speeds. File replication ensures the same files exist at all locations, while real-time file locking keeps users from overwriting files in use.

WAFS Capabilities:

  • Real-time file locking, release, and replication
  • Revit collaboration
  • Complete file revision history
  • File filters
  • System management from both Agent and Vault levels
  • Real-time system information
