AvePoint, the established leader in enterprise-class management, governance, and compliance software solutions for next-generation social collaboration platforms, today announced the general availability of AvePoint File Share Navigator Online. Part of AvePoint Online Services – used by nearly two million Office 365 users today – File Share Navigator Online allows organizations to surface content stored in file shares through SharePoint Online without the need for time and resource intensive migrations.

With File Share Navigator Online, organizations can now:

  •     Accelerate collaboration and user adoption by offering a familiar experience and single point of access for all enterprise content for both local and remote users.
  •     Increase discoverability by utilizing SharePoint Online’s full metadata-based search across all enterprise content, including that which is stored in file shares, without violating support contracts.
  •     Maximize return on investment of all systems by breathing new life into legacy file shares with SharePoint Online functionality.
  •     Access unsupported files in SharePoint Online including files larger than two gigabytes, Microsoft Access data, .exe and .irm files, and Excel Share books.

“Reducing on-premises infrastructure maintenance is one of the most appealing factors when moving to the cloud,” said George Petrou, Chief Technology Officer, AvePoint Inc. “But even after organizations begin using Office 365, they may have content that needs to remain in file shares. AvePoint File Share Navigator Online allows organizations to break down data silos by easily surfacing file share content in SharePoint Online and creating an environment for better enterprise collaboration.”

AvePoint File Share Navigator Online is generally available today, January 27, 2015. For more information on how File Share Navigator Online removes the barriers to seamless global collaboration, please visit our website.
