Why Visuality Systems?
Since establishment in 1998, Visuality Systems has been continuously developing and updating the SMB protocol. The list of customers includes over 150 global Blue Chip companies, and apart from that Visuality Systems also maintains a close partner relationship with Microsoft for future compatibility of Visuality Systems software, thus ensuring that customers receive the latest SMB solutions to interact with Windows-based systems.
Here are some of the reasons why the NQ family of products is the industry’s first choice.
Commercial license - NQ is THE alternative to Samba with a non-GPL license
Samba integration is not always possible for embedded Linux/Unix due to the SAMBA support pattern, large footprint and licensing restraints. Samba requires a GPL license, thus a legal and business concern for all entities.
Customers can save valuable R&D expenses with Visuality Systems’ off-the-shelf and commercially licensed NQ solutions, and stay focused on the core technology.
Customers receive full backing and technical support 24/7 from a professional SMB team, via email, phone or Skype. Visuality Systems engineering experts are always at hand to troubleshoot and answer any question, query or request.

Since its inception, Visuality Systems has pioneered the SMB protocol for commercial deployment. NQ products are utilized in all possible areas from storage, consumer devices, aerospace & defense, medical, industrial automation, smart devices and more.
Ongoing development and full compatibility with Windows SMB, Apple SMB and the open source Samba
Visuality Systems is continuously developing and maintaining the NQ SMB family to ensure security in the face of threats such as the WannaCry ransomware attack.
The three flagship solutions, YNQ™, jNQ™ and NQ™ Storage are compatible with and meet all relevant specifications found in Microsoft’s SMB versions.

Visuality Systems offers services ranging from integration of NQ solutions to specific customer requirements, and services such as porting to various operating systems and performance tuning. Visuality Systems customers have preferred shifting SMB development, maintenance and upgrades to Visuality Systems in order to concentrate on core technology.
NQ products are used in hundreds of millions of products around the world
When scanning a document or a picture and sending it to a PC, it is most likely that the file sharing takes place through the Visuality Systems’ SMB stack. This is just an example.
Millions of printers, scanners and many, many other products run the Visuality Systems’ NQ library, and it is more than likely that most homes or offices around the world have at least one embedded NQ product.
