Using Egnyte technology, CDUfiles introduces a cloud component to your corporate network shares. This means that CDU staff will have access to their corporate data on most platforms without the hassle of VPN installations.

Some of the benefits available include:

  • Ease of Use – The interface is clean, intuitive and easy to navigate.
  • Portability – Egnyte is offered on Apple, Android, Kindle and Windows devices. This makes it easier for CDU staff to access corporate data as there is little to no limitations on platform.
  • Backup - You can be assured that your data is safe as regular backups are performed to reduce risk of data loss.
  • Security – Egnyte gives CDU staff the ability to access the corporate shares via a cloud-based interface however the data is still stored locally at CDU.

The table below outlines what each of the ADAPT file storage services should be used for

What to put where

When using CDUfiles, you might be prompted to download and install a tool called 'WebEdit' onto your computer if you opt to edit a file using the web-interface. WebEdit enables you to select a file from the web-interface and automatically open it in its native application. Changes you save will automatically appear in the cloud as new versions.

This is useful because it allows you to edit and save your documents and files without the need to save it to your desktop.


CDU Computers

WebEdit will be made available to staff as CDUfiles is released. It will be automatically installed on CDU computers.

Personal Computers

To install WebEdit on a personal computer:

  1. click the menu Icon (three horizontal stacked bars) in the top right corner of the CDUfiles screen and select settings
  2. select the menu Icon on the settings page and choose Egnyte Apps
  3. scroll down and choose Egnyte WebEdit and download.
