The on-premises file sharing solution enables organizations to self-host private file sharing servers with their IT infrastructure for easy mobile access and secure file sharing for on-premises file servers.
As more companies allow their employees to work remotely, they need a suite of remote work solutions to be productive. One solution is corporate file sharing, which is explicitly linked to accessing existing local file servers from the home office.
If such a solution is not available, employees can turn to cloud file sharing solutions such as Dropbox. This approach leads to questions like, "Where exactly is my data? Who has access to it? What will they do with it?" And these concerns relate not only to cyber threats and hackers, but also to competitors, foreign nationals and even governments.
IT administrators must also consider the following implied directives:
Avoid being forced into the cloud when users combine tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and email.
Avoid the challenge of sending large email attachments or converting them to zip files for Internet transmission.
Avoid the headaches of data sets split between internal file servers and cloud solutions like Dropbox.
Avoid the cost of manually replicating or recreating of NTFS permissions.
Avoid data fragmentation that creates multiple versions of files that are difficult to track.
Eliminate threats from decentralized security and personal cloud accounts.
Access to shared drives at work is usually based on network share of Windows file server and Active Directory, the key components of the enterprise infrastructure. But when we become road warriors and work- from-home employees, would not it be convenient if shared work drives were naturally transformed into online shared folders that are governed by the same security principles and identity providers as at work?
So why give up your Windows file server and adopt online public file sharing when you are off the corporate network? Would not it be easier to add modern online file sharing and folder sharing capabilities to your on-premise Windows file servers and modernize the file servers we use every day?
Here are the five most requested features for an on-premise file sharing solution.

Businesses can address data privacy concerns by using Triofox to access internal file servers. It's common to talk about replacing existing file servers with cloud solutions to reduce costs and administrative overhead, and Triofox can facilitate this in any private cloud. However, Triofox offers the unique ability to use existing file servers as a replacement for cloud file sharing!
Simplify remote access to file shares with familiar interfaces on any computer or device. Windows and Mac desktops display natively mapped drives in Explorer and Finder. That same experience is presented on iOS and Android devices like iPads, iPhones, and Pixels or can be viewed from popular web browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
Easily collaborate with business partners by providing them with access to a limited set of internal files or folders. Share files with non-AD users while maintaining administrative controls. Simplify multi-site collaboration with automatic version controls and file locking.
Eliminate the overhead and support tickets commonly associated with VPN file sharing, Always On VPN, or Direct Access. Automatically use existing users and permissions to save setup time and money. Have an always-on mapped drive with endpoint protection and with streaming files over HTTPS for security and performance.
Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each tenant and each user. Easily keep track of where the data is, who has access and how it's being shared. All management operations are available from a web browser interface.
Easily keep track of where the data is, who has access and how it’s being shared. For complete control and visibility, permissions can be managed from the file server that was their source, or natively with Triofox.
Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each tenant. Admins can perform audits of GDPR and HIPAA compliance or keep track of any changes that have been made to individual files.
Provide an always-on mapped drive that works anywhere on any device and allows mobile users to easily access internal on-premise file server network shares or cloud file servers
Files are secured at rest and in transit with military-grade encryption, secure connections, and more. Automatically use existing users and permissions to save setup time and money. The local cache is encrypted, and a remote wipe feature is available.
Mapped drives display directory structure but delay downloads until a file is used to reduce bandwidth usage and endpoint storage consumption. User accessed files are cached locally in an encrypted cache for local speed and protection.
Triofox provides a web-based access layer on top of the Windows file server. Data resides within the Windows file server, and corporations maintain data ownership.
