On premise file sharing solution allowing businesses to self-host private file sharing servers with their on-premise IT infrastructure for easy mobile access and secure file sharing to on-premise file servers.
As businesses move more employees to remote work arrangements, employees need a suite of remote working solutions to be productive. One of the solutions is corporate file sharing, specifically relates to accessing existing on-premise file servers from home-offices.
Without providing a company-wide private file sharing solution to them, employees may select consumer cloud file sharing solutions like 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 don’t just involve cyber-threats and hackers but competitors, foreign nationals, and even governments.
IT administrators must also consider the following implied directives:
Avoid being forced to the cloud as users combine tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Email.
Avoid the challenges 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 manual replication or recreation of NTFS permissions.
Avoid data fragmentation that creates multiple versions of files that are difficult to track.
Eliminate threats from de-centralized security and personal cloud accounts.
Accessing shared drives at work is usually based on Windows file server network share and Active Directory, which are very common components of enterprise infrastructure. But when we become road warriors and work-from-home employees, wouldn't it be convenient to have shared work drives naturally converted to shared folders online, governed by the same security principles and the same identity providers at work.
So why give up your Windows file server and adopt public online file sharing when you are outside of the company network? Wouldn't it be easier to add modern online file sharing and folder sharing capabilities to on-premise Windows file servers and modernize the file servers we are used to?
Here are the 5 most requrested features for an on-premise file sharing solution.
