Simple for the Novice, Powerful for the Pro

Introducing WebDrive NextGen

the next generation of simple, powerful file transfer.

Map SharePoint Online as a Network Drive

Access SharePoint and OneDrive within the applications you already use. Easily edit Adobe, text, and all versions of Office.

Access the Cloud in a Click

Box, S3, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, and more can be accessed right from your Windows Explorer or Mac Finder.

Securely Connect to SFTP and FTP Servers

WebDrive is the FTP client you already know how to use. Map FTP and SFTP servers as a drive letter for productivity and convenience.

Preconfigure Settings and Distribute

Reduce installation and setup time for large implementations. Customize and push the settings out to all your users with no need to configure each PC.

Improve WebDAV Access

WebDrive is the WebDAV client with options to mount at startup and lock server files. It works the way the native Windows WebDAV redirector should work.

Access Your Synology NAS From Anywhere

WebDrive gives you remote access to shared files on your Synology NAS, allowing you to access your NAS as though it were a local device.

Simple to manage, simple to use

Designed with IT managers in mind, WebDrive is easy to implement on a large number of desktops.  With the ability to embed the registration code, pre-set the connections that your users need and even run automated installs, large implementation could not be easier. And WebDrive’s instantly familiar interface lets you seamlessly work with cloud storage and corporate SFTP and WebDAV servers right from your desktop.

Access work files from home

Use WebDrive as an easy way to access corporate files while working from home, with simplified access to on-prem SharePoint or popular NAS devices such as Synology. This enables your remote staff to access files as simply as if they were on your corporate network.

VPNs can be challenging and time consuming to manage, particularly with many employees working from home. Setting up a VPN can be quite complex- something that an individual remote user probably can't do on their own, requiring the IT support team to spend significant time assisting remote users. WebDrive can also be used as a replacement for inefficient file access through VPNs, as a connection to SFTP and WebDAV servers. Thinking that now is a good time to move files to the cloud? WebDrive connects to all the popular cloud services through the convenience of a mapped drive letter - no new software for users to learn!

WebDrive lets you access work files from home.

Backup your files

WebDrive allows you to backup the files on your workstation using your favorite backup software. You can easily backup your files to an offsite server and save disk space by using WebDrive’s File Manager to schedule full or partial backups.

WebDrive just works. Works with automation and scripting. Works from the command line or GUI. Connects to everything and never crashes. Perfect appliance tool.

Using WebDrive saves me a lot of time. It gives me the option of editing files directly on the server or changing them locally and then copying them to the mapped drive. I have tried several other similar products but this one is the best.
