Cloud File Sharing

Remote work is clearly on business leaders' minds these days. Lots of staff had to work from home due to pandemics in 2020.

Cloud file sharing helps your business by providing secure, easy to use file sharing and collaboration tools directly integrate with your on-premise file servers and Windows infrastructure.

We are enhancing productivity working from home – easy and secure.

What is Impacting Productivity While Working from Home?

As the CIO, you need to support your employees that are working-from-home due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

A big part of the infrastructure to support work-from-home is a VPN that companies have been historically using for remote connectivity to the office network and computers. Companies who use this legacy solution know all too well the issues that come with it. The VPN is slow and creates many support tickets, slowing down employee productivity and creating pressure on the support teams.

SharePoint and SharePoint Online can alleviate the pain point to some extent, but SharePoint is no replacement for an on-premise file server. It can create yet another data-repository for your employees.

VPN is terrible, but at least it enables the Windows workflow...

VPN creates a tunnel from remote work-from-home devices to connect to the corporate network back at the offices. The virtual private network enables access to the file server network shares, authentication, and authorization from corporate Active Directory domain servers. Thus it allows the normal drive-mapping and file-locking features as part of our typical daily workflow.

Active Directory

With Active Directory, employees can log in to corporate machines with one single set of credentials. 

NTFS Permission

The NTFS file system brings the permission structure to folders and files with well-understood security control. 

Drive Mapping

Drive mapping is probably the most frequently used feature from end-users when then login to their Windows workstation. 

File Locking

File locking is another frequently used feature from NTFS and the CIFS/SMB protocol to lock files while they are being edited. 

Storage Space Direct

With Windows storage space direct, Windows file servers can be pooled together to increase the storage capacity and grow on demand. 

Virtual Machine

With the virtual machine technology, Windows file servers can be available from AWS, Windows Azure, and various other data center locations. 

What if Cloud File Sharing and Windows File Servers are Combined?

Cloud Enable Windows File Server with Cloud File Sharing Features!

  1. ACTIVE DIRECTORY INTEGRATION - Windows file servers and Windows infrastructure will stay in place without any migration requirements. The solution integrates with Active Directory for authentication and authorization to access file servers.
  2. CLOUD FILE SHARING FEATURES - Instead of using VPN to access file servers, software agents on remote PC, Mac, web browsers, and mobile devices leverage HTTPS protocol to connect back to corporate file servers, with standard cloud file sharing features 
  3. BEST OF BOTH WORLD -  The traditional Windows file server security and data ownership is preserved. At the same time, work-from-home employees can use cloud mapped drive with file locking features to access corporate file servers. Besides, web browser responsive HTML pages and mobile applications are provided to enhance the mobile file access user experience.

Core Value

Cloud File Sharing + Windows File Server

Privacy

The cloud file sharing solution extends the current internal Windows file server's reach to remote locations via HTTPS and web protocols. It is privacy by default.

Ownership

The same corporation owns the internal Windows file server and existing IT infrastructure, including the new Triofox server, and the files and folders on the file server are privately owned.

Seamless

The internal Windows file server is the data repository for the newly added private folder sharing service. For employees, the files at work are the same files available remotely on mobile devices.

Compliance

Since files never leave the current on-premise file servers, it is much easier to pass compliance auditing. The new private file sharing service is the only component that needs additional work.

Permission Control

The same NTFS permissions that were in place to protect the internal Windows file server files will be the same permission control in place to protect the private file sharing service.
