Challenges of Online File Storage and Sharing for Enterprises

Nowadays online storage is widely used by many businesses as an alternative to traditional local off-site storage for its benefit of convenience and scalability. However, there are many factors that should be taken into consideration while choosing the right online file storage solution.

Data Security

The biggest concern of online storage for businesses is security. The use of online services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and Microsoft OneDrive require companies to provide control of sensitive data to third parties. The data is typically taken outside of the company’s IT environment, leading to potential leakage of internal data.

According to a Ponemon study, 60% of organizations have employees that frequently put confidential files on online-based services without permission. In fact, IBM has even completely banned the use of these services.

Companies are justifiably worried that data is at risk of being viewed or mishandled by third-party providers. Since the cloud is a multi-user environment, wherein all the resources are shared, a proper segregation between tenants is not always guaranteed.

Cost of Data Breach

Even with additional security, internal company information is still susceptible to hacks or leaks in the process of file transfer.

In 2019, on average, every employee had access to 17 million files and 1.21 million folders (Varonis). According to IBM's Cost of a Data Breach Report , the average total cost of a data breach is $3.92 million and moving in an upward trend. Therefore keeping cloud data secure and compliant can be said to be business’s first priority.

security, compliance and regulation

Compliance and Regulation

Businesses worry that migrating their data to the cloud not only will put them at security risk, but also compromise their industry-specific compliance requirements.

Especially when it comes to the more heavily regulated or security-conscious fields, companies often want to make sure they have first hand control over the regulation of their data. In heavily regulated industries, keeping the information on hand can often mean the difference between being in or out of compliance with federal or industry-specific regulations.

Access Control and Credential Management

After migrating their data onto the cloud, organizations often struggle with permission control.

Most online storage solutions do not offer a central management option for companies. This makes it challenging to have a centralized credential and access policy such as who can access what file, where someone can login, IP range to login, etc.

The Private Online Storage Benefits!

Triofox eliminates the common drawbacks of traditional file server access and online file sharing solutions and comes with the following benefits. It is a private storage solution with online storage features.

Guarantee Data Privacy
Businesses can address data privacy concerns by using CentreStack to provide access to internal file servers. It’s common to talk about replacing existing file servers with cloud solutions to reduce costs and administrative overhead, and CentreStack can facilitate that in any private cloud, but CentreStack offers the unique option of using existing file servers to replace cloud file sharing!
Increase Productivity
Provide an always-on mapped drive that works anywhere on any device and allows mobile users to easily access internal file shares or cloud file servers. Windows file server network shares and shared drive can be turned into online folders guarded by the same security measures as those from on-premise file servers and governed by the same Active Directory.
Simplify File Share Access
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. Mobile workers will see the same content in the online shared folder as if they were from internal mapped drive.
Reduce Costs with a Simple VPN Alternative
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. Internal shared drive, with the help from the CentreStack server, have new online folder representations over HTTPS (SSL) protocols and with RESTful APIs for client agents and mobile applications.
Simplify Management
Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each tenant. Easily keep track of where the data is, who has access and how it’s being shared. There is a centralized web-based management portal that provide single-pane-of-glass-style management console to manage shared folders and shared files in addition to other objects in the management scope.
Centrally Manage Granular Folder Permissions
For complete control and visibility, permissions can be managed from the file server that was their source, or natively with CentreStack. Businesses and their employees accumulate the NTFS permission structure over years of active use and practice. Those NTFS permissions will be inherited by CentreStack and continue to control access to online folder sharing.
Mobile Access to File Servers
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, Edge and Internet Explorer.
Enhance Data Security
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. When files and folders can continue to stay-in-place with the Windows file servers, the security parameters are smaller and simpler than a public online sharing services and easier to pass compliance tests.
On-Demand Synchronization
Mapped drives display directory structure but delay downloads until a file is used to reduce bandwidth usage and endpoint storage consumption. Shared folders and files also have generated web links allowing them to be shown in a web browser based file manager. The files will not be actively downloaded or viewed (as in secure-data-room) until users generate access intents.
White Labeled File Sharing Solution
CentreStack provides a white labeled platform that makes it easy for MSP partners to build a private online file sharing solution based on infrastructure from Amazon, Windows Azure or Google Cloud. MSPs can even build the white labeled solution inside their most preferred data center on a per-client basis with per-client branding support.
On-Premises Alternative to Dropbox and SharePoint
CentreStack has the flexibility to provide an on-premises alternative to Dropbox, OneDrive and SharePoint using existing file servers. You can modernize your file server so much that from the online file sharing solution's perspective, it is same as those from public domains, while at the same time, the solution keeps all the file server security and data ownership benefits.
Maintain Compliance
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. It is so much easier to pass compliance tests when both the CentreStack servers and the Windows servers IT infrastructure are under your supervision and control.
