Share Your NETWORKS Easily

In Polinode networks can be either public or private. If your data is private then you should feel comfortable that it will be secure in Polinode (we do a lot of work on data security!). Sometimes though you may want to share your data with others publicly. With Polinode you can - just share the link to a public network and anyone will be able to access it. So, you can grant permission to individual users to collaborate on private networks with them or you can share public networks with others by simply sharing a link.
