The need of a new cloud storage solution
While public cloud storage services increase efficiency and employee productivity, it lacks the essential security, compliance and regulation that enterprises need.
Public cloud storage solutions have become increasingly popular as they conveniently enable access to files using sync and share capabilities. You can access your files anywhere from web browsers, desktops, and mobile devices.
However, public clouds are not secure enough for many enterprises’ standards. While they desire the convenience of public cloud storage, enterprises can’t help but have concerns on data ownership, privacy, compliance, data splitting and so on.
With your drastically increasing data size, you probably prefer to control and regulate their internal sensitive data in your own hands, and not store on some third-party cloud, to avoid data leak and compliance issues.
Therefore you may decide to turn down public cloud storage and still use file servers as your traditional file sharing platform. In this case it is necessary to use a VPN to access these file servers outside of the company, on mobile devices, and over web browsers. With a VPN as the only option, it is neither a quick nor efficient way to access your files.
Say your data is already privately owned, safe in your own hands, but now you want to mobilize them so you can also enjoy the cloud convenience.
Triofox helps you easily integrate your private file server with cloud-like features, enjoying both security and mobility. Triofox gives you your own private cloud storage, but adds on top of it the powerful features of easy remote access, secure web-based file sharing and file access from mobile phones.
Triofox provides secure, remote and mobile access to on-premise file server shares without needing to use VPN.
Triofox offers the features of mobile and web based access similar to those from public cloud storage services, and the control of private file server storage by integrating them into a simple Windows installable package. This end result provides a solution that enterprises can easily deploy as their own private cloud storage service with native Active Directory and Single-Sign-on integration.
Triofox solutions have a web server component that accepts file requests from client agents and mobile applications over the HTTPS/SSL protocol. These requests are then translated into Active Directory and File Server network share access protected by NTFS permissions. The file is sent back via HTTPS/SSL to the client agents when all permission checks have passed. Triofox uses this approach to combine the power of a mapped drive with the simplicity of web browsing and the handy mobile applications to present a unified files and folders view across multiple device factors!
