Display Only File Server (DOFS)


Display-only File Server (DOFS), by Rether Networks, can help you protect your confidential data and intellectual property from internal theft whether accidental or malicious. Unlike the Digital Rights Management (DRM) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) tool, DOFS can be used to protect any file type and DOFS does not rely on content-aware scanning. It is easy to deploy with little to no end-user learning curve.  All protected data are placed on a secure file server. Only authorized users will be able to access, read or modify the confidential files.  If there is a need to print, copy or email the sensitive file, the user would have to print, copy or email directly from the secure file server with the help of the system administrator.  A system log is generated to track these events. In addition, a watermark is printed on the document for increased security.

Prevent your sensitive company information from internal theft through unauthorized:

  • Printing
  • Saving to a portable device
  • Saving to a local machine
  • Emailing
  • Screen printing

DOFS is best used in a centralized environment. If your organization prefers thin client deployment, DOFS is a great solution to your internal security issues by keeping your sensitive data where it belongs – inside the organization.


  • Easy to Deploy: allows IT managers to quickly and easily implement organization-wide security by giving access permission via folders or groups rather than by individual files.  No key words or content-aware policy configuraions are required.
  • Data Security: locks up confidential data by accessing all secure data from a secure file server.  Files cannot not be stored locally and restricted unauthorized copying and printing of sensitive files.
  • Application Agnostic: DOFS will be able to protect any file type without additional software or plugin.
  • Cost Effective: only single software is needed to protect organization from insider threats in a thin client environment.  No costly application versions are necessary.
  • Track User Activity: Access Tracker is an audit software that is included with DOFS allowing you to track all DOFS file user activity on your DOFS server.  Access Tracker provides you with a file audit trail to help you with your compliance needs.
