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.
