From File Servers to Secure File Sharing

Web based file sharing has traditionally been served by public cloud storage and file sharing services. 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 its shared drives!

Consumer File Sharing Challenges

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:

Migration Pressure

Avoid being forced to the cloud as users combine tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Email.
Sharing Large Folder

Avoid the challenges of sending large email attachments or converting them to zip files for Internet transmission.
Data Sprawl

Avoid the headaches of data sets split between private file servers and public file sharing solutions like Dropbox.
Migration Costs

Avoid the cost of manual replication of data content and re-creation of NTFS permissions.
Version Control

Avoid data fragmentation that creates multiple versions of files that are difficult to track.
Security Threats

Eliminate threats from de-centralized security and the invasion of personal cloud accounts.

From Private Storage to Cloud Sharing

Accessing private on-premise network shared drives at work is usually based on Windows file server network share and Active Directory, which are very common 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, as if they were governed by the same security principles and the same identity providers at work.

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?

The Secure File Sharing with Private Storage Benefits!

Triofox eliminates the common drawbacks of traditional file server access and cloud file sharing solutions and combines both strengths with the following benefits.

Guarantee Data Privacy
Businesses can address data privacy concerns by using Triofox 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 Triofox can facilitate that in any private cloud, but Triofox offers the unique option of using existing file servers data storage to facilitate cloud file sharing!
Simplify Collaboration
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.
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.
Maintain Compliance
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.
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.
Private File Sharing Solution
From file server storage, to internal Active Directory IT infrastructure and the firewalls protecting access to internal digital assets, enterprise can create a completely private file sharing solution.
 
Secure File Sharing With Clients
Simplify corporate file sharing 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.

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 Granular Folder Permissions
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.
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.
On-Demand Synchronization
Mapped drives display directory structure but delay downloads until a file is used to reduce bandwidth usage and endpoint storage consumption.
