Organizations can now take advantage of Microsoft’s latest on-premises platform while providing users with seamless access to all file share content.

DocAve File Share Navigator removes the barriers to seamless global collaboration by exposing large files, rich media, and a variety other file share content in SharePoint Server 2016, SharePoint Server 2013, and SharePoint Server 2010 without the need for costly migration from file shares to SharePoint.
