Cloud based solutions are adding a learning curve to simple and familiar actions
- Secure document transfer and custom import/export of files for system integration is becoming difficult.
- Web-based upload models are inconsistent forcing customers to learn new functionalities.
- Familiar actions such as printing a file, saving a file, scanning a file, or snapping pictures via cameras are more preferable than learning new methods.
- Sharing custom files between systems applications requires opening up of insecure ports.
There’s a need for a secure system that allows
- Patients to transfer documents to doctor’s offices.
- Doctor’s offices to transfer documents to other doctor’s offices.
- Clients of legal and accounting firms to transfer documents to their lawyers, CPAs or accountants.
- Lawyers and accountants to send documents to each other.
- Customers of any company to transfer documents to their vendors.
The Netspective Fluent Cloud Agent provides a plug and play cloud gateway agent that a user can install in less than 5 minutes on any workstation, behind their firewall in their network, and allow them to securely perform data exchange.
What is Fluent?
Fluent consists of 2 components – Fluent XA and Fluent XS
eXtensible Agent (XA) Fluent XA is a gateway app that runs on any PC or Linux workstation and automates common tasks such as file transfers between on-premise (behind a firewall) and cloud servers. eXtensible Server (XS) Fluent XS is a series of server apps such as agent admin, gateway monitor, and print processor which acts as the secure conduit between all agents and external cloud systems.

What can it do?
Secure file exchange gateway…
…using what users
…with more functionality
…plus secure, audited, compliant
The fluent cloud agent acts as a plug and play cloud connector agent that your customer can install in less than 5 minutes on any server, behind their firewall in their network, and allow you to securely perform data exchange without their IT team opening any special ports, without making any firewall configuration changes, and all without a VPN deployment.
Use the Fluent Cloud Agent when you want to securely exchange cloud data with your customers’ internal systems without the hassle of custom software installations, firewall rule changes, or VPNs.
NXB – Netspective Extensible Behaviors
NXB follows the principle of IFTTT. The Fluent Agent provides NXB using a plug-in architecture framework where you can simply define behaviors and plug it in.
Use NXB to define behaviors to
- Automate tasks on the cloud. Automatically have your MRI scans delivered to you when they are ready.
- Automate tasks on your workstations or servers. Synch new files between systems or servers as they arrive.
- Work more efficiently. Share anything from modern apps or legacy applications that don’t know how to share their data.
- Send out reminders. Send out daily/weekly/periodic notification emails to your team
- Share your pictures. Simply take a picture or a video and instantly share it from your desktop PCs.
- Create your own workflow. Scan photos of your office get-togethers and have them be sent to shared locations where the staff can view them.
Multiple triggers can use the same action and vice versa.
Instantly share anything you can print from modern apps or legacy applications that don’t know how to share their data.
Documents can be transferred as high fidelity (pixel perfect) PDFs or can be converted to read-only or hard to copy/duplicate viewable version.
Once received on the server side, encrypted PDFs can be forwarded via email (using simple PINs that are sent via SMS/text) or parsed / processed by automation scripts.
Instantly share any file you can see on your desktop or your network directories just by right-clicking or a simple drag and drop.
If the file format of a document or picture is important, Send2Share can electronically send files on demand via HTTP, or HTTPS. These files can then be processed on the server side, and later emailed, imported into another application, or saved somewhere.
Scan and instantly share any document.
Documents can be scanned and transferred as high fidelity (pixel perfect) PDFs, JPGs, etc. or can be converted to a read-only or hard to copy/duplicate viewable version.
Once received on the server side, encrypted documents can be forwarded via email (using simple PINs that are sent via SMS/text) or processed by imaging scripts for recognition or other requirements.
Snap and instantly share any picture, audio clip, or video clip from your desktop PCs.
Once received on the server side, encrypted photos, audio or video clips can be forwarded via email (using simple PINs that are sent via SMS/text) or processed by imaging, audio, or video scripts for recognition or other requirements.
Watch2Share allows sending of files on a regular basis (e.g. when directories change).
It is setup to be a queue for applications to put data in and take data from, in real-time, including drag and drop of multiple files.
Process incoming files using custom applications and scripts or save them in common cloud service providers via encrypted transfer.
DICOM images delivered to you.
Now there is no need to pick up your DICOM images and radiology reports after your CT/MRI scans. They will be delivered straight into your account/your PCP’s account.
The DICOM images will retain the same high resolution of the original images.
Sending secure and signed emails.
The Fluent Agent watches for the arrival of files within the Fluent folder. As the files arrive in the folder, it can be signed, encrypted and sent to the recipients.
Custom “screen scrapers” or integration utilities that need to connect to legacy applications and extract data to send to the cloud can be written by Netspective, customers, or system integrators.
