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.
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 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.
With Active Directory, employees can log in to corporate machines with one single set of credentials.
The NTFS file system brings the permission structure to folders and files with well-understood security control.
Drive mapping is probably the most frequently used feature from end-users when then login to their Windows workstation.
File locking is another frequently used feature from NTFS and the CIFS/SMB protocol to lock files while they are being edited.
With Windows storage space direct, Windows file servers can be pooled together to increase the storage capacity and grow on demand.
With the virtual machine technology, Windows file servers can be available from AWS, Windows Azure, and various other data center locations.

A solution that adds iPhone application, web browser interface, Windows mapped drive, and Mac Finder volume to corporate Windows file servers and turn the Windows infrastructure into a corporate cloud file sharing solution.
Enable secure remote access over HTTPS without the need to use a VPN.
Adds version control, file change history and audit tracing to provide business continuity for file servers on-premises.
Adds web browser file manager interface and mobile applications to enhance mobile file sharing user experience
Sets up a hybrid deployment between local file servers and cloud storage that can be seamlessly converted to cloud-only la
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Triofox eliminates the common drawbacks of remote file server access and file sharing solutions and provides the best of both worlds – the security and control of on-premise file servers combined with the efficiency and productivity gains of remote mobile access.
Triofox provides a mapped drive over HTTPS/SSL for seamless file access.
Define different permissions for folders at different levels of the directory structure.
Use Outlook integration to transfer large files as web links via email.
