Turn Home Folder Into a Dropbox

Similar to Dropbox, but also connect your employee's Active Directory Home Directory to remote employee's desktop and mobile phone.

Give Your Active Directory Home Folder a Dropbox-Like Access.

What is a home folder in active directory?

Home folders make it easier for an administrator to back up user files and manage user accounts by collecting the user's files in one location, a.k.a, company-owned file server network share. If you assign a home folder to a user, you can store the user's data centrally and privately on a company file server, and make backup and recovery of data easier and more reliable.

It is also a great usability feature for a user because from multiple company-owned devices, the home folder is always attached as a drive letter, making it easy for the user to access files and folders from any devices.

How shall we further enhance the user's experience by making the home folder follow the user around from airport and any other remote locations and make it easy to access remotely. Mobilize your home folders!

Finding an Enterprise Cloud Storage Solution

Companies need a cloud file storage solution with data security and control. Employees need easy online access to their home folders to be productive.

The Remote Site Headache -

With multiple sites and remote offices, remote employees are often used to saving documents to their local My Documents folder. Even with a local file server to the remote site, employees still save documents to the My Documents folder on their desktop. This is a problem because if the user’s PC breaks down, all their data is lost.

The Dropbox Problem -

To resolve the data backup problem, some remote employees may turn to their personal Dropbox or third-party file storage accounts to transfer and store company files. While this may provide a temporary solution for file access and backup, it is also a problem for your company. In order to meet certain data compliance criteria, you simply cannot allow users to sync their files anywhere. Additionally, you also cannot control where your files are, leading to a risk of security.

Your Situation

It’s likely that your company is already standardized on Microsoft technologies such as Active Directory and Windows File Server, where each user is assigned a home directory from the file server and group policy is leveraged to map the home folder to a drive letter.

VPN is not good

You may use VPNs in between your main office and remote office. However, the connection process is tedious as users must connect to the VPN, map a drive to the Active Directory home directory, and save their documents there.

Ideal Solution

An ideal solution would be a seamless process that turns the remote user’s My Documents folder into an enterprise drop box and synchronizes the local documents directly into the company’s file server inside each user’s Active Directory home directory.

A Better File Server Solution

If you are one of many organizations that faces problems from above, Triofox can solve your problem with Active Directory Home Directory integration

How does it work? With Triofox, remote users can go to the enterprise web portal, download the Triofox client agent software, and turn their local folders into enterprise dropbox folders. Files saved to their local folder will be migrated to their user’s home directory folder automatically. And files and folders in the current home folder will show up under a drive letter as well without the need of a VPN solution.
