Give your employees an Internet-based group file sharing solution secured by Windows Active Directory and on-premise file server access and permission control. Your employees and partners can use web browsers and mobile phones to share files online protected by Active Directory.
Without providing a secure group file sharing service to employees, they may select consumer cloud file sharing solutions like Dropbox. This approach leads to questions like, “Where, exactly, is my data? Who has access to it? What will they do with it?” And these concerns don’t just involve cyber-threats and hackers but competitors, foreign nationals, and even governments.
The moment you put files into a "Dropbox" folder, the files are synchronized outside of company firewalls to external sites, which leads to data leakage problems and create trouble moments when compliance auditing comes around.
Gladinet CentreStack provides secure file sharing service that integrates with Active Directory users, groups and on-premise file server shares. Employees, customers and partners can then easily share files and folders from the on-premise file servers without violating existing security rules and permissions. In addition, secure file sharing can be done in the cloud, without VPN and also the access methods can be extended from traditional PC and Mac to web browsers and mobile devices.

To show how it is done, we have a lab setup with one CentreStack Server, One Active Directory Server and One Windows File Server. For demonstration purpose, the Active Directory Server and the File Server can co-exist on the same Windows 2012 server. As shown below, CentreStack is running at “Windows 2012 R2 Gladinet (11)”, which it will have a public IP Address and DNS name. The Active Directory and File Server are running at the “Windows 2012 R2 AD (10)”. This Active Directory server can be behind the second firewall of a DMZ.
