Why you need NetConnect LYF

The continuous expansion of cloud and mobility in our daily lives is gradually pushing organisations to enable cloud-based access to company data. More often than not, if external data access is difficult or not available at all, employees take matters into their own hands. Typically by signing up for individual consumer-grade cloud-based file storage services.

As a result overall data security is jeopardised and data administration becomes a nightmare.

NetConnect LYF resolves this problem by transforming your existing file storage into your own private cloud file storage service – without requiring you to change your current infrastructure. Everything remains in place: your file servers, your infrastructure, your data!

Access Your Existing Files From Any Device Of Choice

How Does It Work?

Once the NetConnect LYF virtual server is installed and configured, users can simply access the internal company file server via the NetConnect LYF application.

NetConnect LYF is available through a simple web browser, or via our upcoming native iOS and Android mobile applications. With NetConnect LYF, users can browse, preview, download, upload and edit their files from any device, anywhere*.

To keep things simple and secure, users connect using their Active Directory credentials and have access to the same files they can access in the office. Data permissions simply carry over from their existing profile.

NetConnect LYF acts as a secure virtualization layer between your existing file server and the Internet. It takes the form of a separate server installed in your network, alongside your file server which remains untouched.

What about Security?

NetConnect LYF is built on the powerful and secure NetConnect platform, designed to enable and control secure remote access for any organisation.

Active Directory integration ensures only authorised users can access their files and folders. Permissions are simple to manage and adjust if necessary.

NetConnect LYF is self hosted and self managed to ensure only you have control and access to your data. It is a separate secure server in your environment, acting as an air-gap to prevent direct access to your infrastructure from the Internet.

All communications via the NetConnect LYF server are highly encrypted (SHA-256 minimum) to ensure utmost security for your most important asset – data!



Browse, download, upload, preview and edit your files
from any device*.



With NetConnect LYF you not only enjoy total office mobility but receive complete network security via native Multi-Factor Authentication integration, role-based access control, and Active Directory integration.

NetConnect LYF comes standard with multi-layered security offering industry leading data encryption.



Whether you are in the office, on the road, at a customer site or working from home, access to your company information & files is critical to an efficient and modern workplace. Install NetConnect LYF on your local or cloud environment and your data is instantly mobile, in your pocket everywhere you go, with zero configuration downtime & complete security of your business environment.

No migration


Don’t risk losing control of your data, use NetConnect LYF to make it a secure mobile office.

The beauty of NetConnect LYF lies in its ability to integrate with your existing infrastructure. Avoid complicated and unnecessary data migrations with NetConnect LYF. Transform your existing file servers into private cloud file storage without affecting any other components. Enable mobility for you and your team who need access, but leave your network untouched for all other users who don’t require secure mobile file access.

Clientless Access


No need for any complicated configuration of your device.

LYF transforms your entire data infrastructure into an HTML5-enabled private cloud storage solution, delivering the ability to preview (and in some cases edit) files within a web-browser. Embrace the benefits of the cloud with a centrally managed solution, without installing anything on your device – simply open a web-browser and start working on your files!



Select the folders and files you want available externally, whilst the rest can remain securely hidden from mobile users.





NetConnect LYF is NOT a cloud, subscription-based offering. It is a self-hosted solution – your data does NOT flow through third party data-centres to get to your users. Users connect directly to the NetConnect LYF appliance and authenticate against Active Directory. Multi-factor authentication integration is built-in for extra security and all communication in encrypted end to end.

Simple licensing – fixed cost per user (per month/year)

Easy to Install & Manage – virtual appliance included free of charge
