Using private enterprise storage to create a secure file sharing service. It comes with client agents, drive mapping, file locking, and endpoint protection capabilities.
From File Servers to Secure File Sharing
Public cloud storage and file-sharing services popularized the idea of web-based file sharing. For corporate workers that standardized their daily work on internal on-premise file servers, they need to switch between internal file servers and external file-sharing services and copy files back and forth for internal and external file sharing.
With Triofox, you can share folders online and share files over the Internet as web links to private file server network shares directly, with inherited NTFS permissions and optional expiration dates, or even in a secure data room with auditing features. Enjoy the simplicity of cloud file sharing combined with private file server storage, security, and shared drives!
Without providing a corporate-wide private file sharing service to employees, they 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.
Besides the data ownership issue, IT administrators must also consider the following challenges and 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 private file servers and public file sharing solutions like Dropbox.
Avoid the cost of manual replication of data content and re-creation of NTFS permissions.
Avoid data fragmentation that creates multiple versions of files that are difficult to track.
Eliminate threats from de-centralized security and the invasion of personal cloud accounts.
"Everybody globally has access to the same files which are all up-to-date and accurate, from a system that’s also secure and easy to implement. "
Accessing private on-premise network shared drives at work is usually based on Windows file server network share and Active Directory, principal components of enterprise IT infrastructure. But for road warriors and work-from-home employees, wouldn't it be convenient to have shared work drives naturally converted to web-based shared folders for mobile sharing and remote access. Simultaneously, the same security principles and the exact identity providers at work controls the web-based file access.
So why give up your private file servers and adopt public cloud file sharing? Wouldn't it be nicer to add modern cloud file sharing and folder sharing capabilities to private file servers and mobilize the file servers?

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.
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.
For complete control and visibility, permissions can be managed from the file server that was their source. NTFS permissions associated with private data storage will be inherited to continue the protection.
Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each tenant. Administrators 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 access internal file shares or cloud file servers easily.
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.
