Qnap Systems, Inc. released the beta version of Browser Station, an app that creates virtual browsers on company's NAS.

It helps users avoid complex VPN settings when remotely accessing data on the same LAN as the firm's NAS, providing a convenient and safe way to browse the web and access protected data.

People who travel frequently or work remotely can greatly benefit from Browser Station,” said Christine Wang, product manager, QNAP, adding “they can easily access LAN resources from mobile and remote devices without needing a proxy or VPN, and also download files directly to the NAS.

Users can manage all of their virtual browsers with the management interface of Browser Station. Besides supporting encrypted access with VPN protection, it can bypass IP blocks to enable users to remotely access restricted data, such as their company's private servers.

More useful features of Browser Station include: users can specify a NAS shared folder for downloading files (including email attachments and from web sites); users can install the firm's Qfinder browser extension to quickly find and access their company's NAS over LAN; Browser Station retains the current status of browsers, including open tabs, bookmarks, browsing history, and more.

The Browser Station Beta is available from the QTS App Center.

  • Company's NAS with at least 4GB RAM and QTS 4.2.2 NAS OS (or later).
