Enterprise Dropbox Alternative Solution

The Dropbox Problem
    -  Workplace Invasion by Consumer Tools

The "Dropbox" Problem

The unsanctioned use of consumer-oriented file sharing services in businesses is a growing issue. It has been coined “the Dropbox problem”. 

For remote or work-from-home employees, it’s common to use Dropbox and third-party cloud services to backup and share local folders for easy access over the internet. Dropbox allows you to access files on the cloud, and easily share files across colleagues.

However, having internal company documents stored on multiple devices and third-party hosting sites is a major concern that many businesses face. While Dropbox can provide convenience for access outside a company’s firewall, it also creates liabilities for regulatory obligations and leakage of critical business information. Businesses cannot control where their files are, making them vulnerable to data breaches.

As the CIO of a company, whether it’s an enterprise or medium-sized business, you are now faced with the “Dropbox Problem”

In fact, leading companies like IBM have even banned their employees from using Dropbox and Apple’s iCloud storage. While IBM is a big company with its own infrastructure to ensure cloud file transfer, it’s a challenge for smaller businesses to completely eliminate the use of third-party cloud storage services without providing their employees with an alternative option.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could self-host and manage a Dropbox-like service for your business, which unlike Dropbox, is under your own control?

If you need a private Dropbox like server solution ...

Triofox gives security and control back in the hands of the enterprise and the employees, by leveraging the local connectivity to Active Directory and enterprise's own storage solution to create a self-hosted enterprise dropbox alternative solution. Provide your employees with a replacement solution that is both user-friendly and under your company’s control.

Triofox: An Enterprise Alternative to Dropbox

Triofox provides a secure business replacement solution to Dropbox.

This is a solution that you completely own and control. Triofox enables you to install and self-host the solution completely on-premise or inside a trusted service provider's data center. It also can be integrated with the file server storage, SAN storage or NAS storage.

On top of the security guaranteed by the private nature of Triofox, Triofox provides the same convenience as Dropbox: remote access on any computer or device. Windows and Mac desktops display natively mapped drives in Explorer and Finder. The same experience is presented on iOS and Android devices, as well as popular web browsers.

Active Directory

No additional setup step needed to add Active Directory users. Users can simply login to the on-premise Triofox Cloud web portal. If an employee leaves the company, you can simply turn off their Active Directory entry, which also turns off the access to the solution.

Folder Permissions

There is an option to use the user’s home directory information for web browser and mobile device access. Employees can access the company wide personal home directory both at work and at home. NTFS permissions are here to protect file access.

Self-Hosted Solution

The solution can be integrated with your own storage, whether it be file server network shares, SAN storage or NAS storage. The solution can be self-hosted in your own data centers and with your own IT infrastructure for complete control, data ownership and data privacy.
