What are the popular active directories in the cloud?
Gladinet solutions add cloud file services to on-premise file server with remote access, secure file sharing and data protection capabilities, while retaining the old security safeguards, permission controls and data ownership! Active Directory integration is an important feature enabling mobile workforce to continue to login as their own active directory user identities when they are accessing file server storage or cloud storage over the Internet.
Whether it be setting up a cloud file server, or bring cloud services to existing on-premise file servers, Gladinet has many active directory integration features.
Gladinet solutions have a web server component that accepts file requests from client agents and mobile applications over the HTTPS/SSL protocol. These requests are then translated into Active Directory and File Server network share access protected by NTFS permissions. The file is sent back via HTTPS/SSL to the client agents when all permission checks have passed. Gladinet uses this approach to combine the power of a mapped drive with the simplicity of web browsing and the handy mobile applications to present a unified files and folders view across multiple device factors!
