VX Search is an automated, rule-based file search solution allowing one to search files by the file type, category, extension, file name, file size, location, creation, modification and last access dates, regular expressions, user name, file attributes, binary and text patterns, JPEG EXIF tags, etc.

The user is provided with the ability to categorize and filter file search results, perform file management operations, generate various types of pie and bars charts, save reports to a number of standard formats such as HTML, PDF, text, Excel CSV, XML and export search results to an SQL database.

IT administrators are provided with advanced file search capabilities including the ability to search files in multiple servers and/or NAS storage devices simultaneously, periodic file search operations, automatic report generation, conditional file search actions allowing one to send E-Mail notifications and/or execute custom commands when a file search operation finds a user-specified number of files.

Searching Files in Network Servers and NAS Storage Devices

VX Search allows one to scan the network, discover network servers and NAS storage devices, automatically detect all accessible network shares and search files in hundreds of network servers and NAS storage devices. In addition, the user is provided with the ability to export the list of detected servers and NAS storage devices (including lists of network shares for each server) into HTML, PDF, text and Excel CSV reports.

In order to search files in one or more servers or NAS storage devices, press the 'Network' button located on the main toolbar and wait while VX Search will scan the network and show a list of detected network servers and NAS storage devices. On the network servers and NAS storage devices dialog, select the required servers and press the 'Search' button.

VX Search will show all network shares hosted on the selected servers and NAS storage devices allowing one to search files and save various types of file search reports and charts. In addition, VX Search provides a large number of advanced file search options allowing one to tune and customize file search operations for user specific needs and hardware configurations.

VX Search Command Line Utility

In addition to the VX Search GUI application, the user is provided with a command line utility, which can be used to execute pre-configured file search operations and integrated into user-custom shell scripts and batch files. The VX Search command line utility may be used to execute file search operations locally or control file search operations in one or more VX Search Servers via the network.

VX Search Server

IT and storage administrators are provided with the server product version, which runs in the background as a service and provides the ability to perform fully-automated, periodic file search operations, generate various types of file search reports, analyze file search results and execute conditional actions based on user-defined rules and policies.

VX Search Server may be controlled using a full-scale client GUI application and the command line utility, which provides the ability to perform file search operations, review results and save reports locally and through the network. Finally, enterprise customers are provided with VX Search Enterprise - a server-based product version allowing one to perform search operations, review results and save reports using a regular web browser locally or through the network.
