Share Files Online

Setup a private file sharing server to share files online with friends, colleagues and business partners, privately, securely and friendly.

Share Files Online with Privacy and Data Ownership

Share files online without sending data to a third party site

Email attachments were probably the most popular way of sending or sharing files online. However, there are size limitations, file extension restrictions, among other constraints. And you can't easily share an entire folder as an email attachment.

Using a personal Dropbox account or using Office 365 accounts are also popular ways to share files online with yourself, your colleagues, your business partners and your friends.

When it comes to business file sharing online for your mobile workforce, email attachment is no longer efficient and Dropbox is no longer secure. Sharing files online by sending files through a third party hosting service first creates data sprawl problems and compliance issues later. Who owns your data after your files are sitting some place else?

You need a solution to share files online privately, without sending files to a third party first and maintain ownership of your own files and folders.

Private online file folder sharing is possible?

Share files online doesn't mean you have to use a public cloud storage file sharing service, such as Dropbox or Office 365, even though these public file sharing services are popular among users.

For businesses, not only they have motivations for their mobile workforces to be productive and efficient, they also have motivations to protect their files and folders and to comply to regulations.

For businesses, setting up their own private file sharing services that work directly with their internal file servers is the best way to combine both the cloud productivity and the traditional security and compliance into one single solution.

Yes, private online file folder sharing is possible with Triofox! Triofox puts a cloud layer around your private file servers and enable online file sharing capabilities while keeps files and folders on the same private file servers.

File sharing not done right will lead to data sprawl and compliance issues later

The file is sent back via HTTPS/SSL to the client agents when all permission checks have passed. Mobile workforce use this approach to combine the power of the cloud, web browser, mobile device with the simplicity of web based online file sharing and the security of traditional file servers!

Agents Send File Requests
Client agents send HTTPS/SSL requests to the Triofox server (via the web component). The server can log the requests for auditing purpose and also coordinate the file access and sharing demands.

Active Directory Integration
Active Directory and NTFS permissions are used to check whether the file requests are allowed. After that, file requests are satisfied and returned via HTTPS/SSL to client agents.

More Benefits
Guarantee Data Privacy
Businesses can address data privacy concerns by using Triofox to provide file sharing based on 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 to facilitate online 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. Web based file sharing is also available based on internal file servers.
Simplify File Share Access
Easily collaborate with business partners by sharing with them 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.
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.
Simplify Management
Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage for each employees and business partners. Easily keep track of where the data is, who has access and how it’s being shared.
Centrally Manage Granular Folder Permissions
For complete control and visibility, file sharing permissions can be managed from the file server that was their source or redefined from Triofox.
Maintain Data Ownership
When compliance auditing comes around annually, you can point to the file servers that are hosting your private data that had passed auditing in previous years, instead of asking online file sharing companies to be part of the auditing process.
Mobile Sharing 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, 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 avoid manual setup errors.
On-Demand Synchronization
Mapped drives display directory structure but delay downloads until a file is used to reduce bandwidth usage and endpoint storage consumption. Sharing large folders is quite simple with on-demand access and synchronization.
On-Premises Alternative to Dropbox and SharePoint
Triofox has the flexibility to provide an on-premises alternative to Dropbox and SharePoint using existing file servers. Triofox is so much easier to setup than setting up a SharePoint server.
Maintain Compliance
Centrally manage users, access controls, and storage. Administrators can perform audits of GDPR and HIPAA compliance or keep track of any changes that have been made to individual files and keep track of shared files and folders.
