Email attachments are traditionally the most popular way of sending or sharing files online. However, there are size limitations and file-extension restrictions, among other constraints. You also can't easily share an entire folder as an email attachment.
Using a personal Dropbox or Office 365 account are also popular ways to store files online or share it with your colleagues, business partners, and friends.
When it comes to business file sharing for your mobile workforce, email attachments are no longer efficient and Dropbox is no longer secure. Sharing files online through a third-party hosting service creates data sprawl problems and compliance issues in the future.
You need a solution to share files online privately, while maintaining ownership of your own files and folders.
Sharing files online doesn't mean you need to use a public cloud storage file sharing service.
Businesses want their mobile workforce to be productive and efficient, however, they also want to protect their company files and comply with regulations.
For businesses, setting up your own private file sharing services to work directly with your internal file servers is the best way to combine both the cloud productivity and security into one solution.
Triofox makes private online file folder sharing possible. With a cloud layer around your private file servers, Triofox enables online file sharing capabilities and keeps files and folders on the same private file servers.

Provides mobile applications for file and folder access from mobile devices such as from iPhone or Android phones.
Lock files-in-use or checking out files for offline access. Either way, file locking is a necessary feature for team collaboration.
Web browser based file manager is an important part of the solution. it is responsive, interactive and very easy to use.
Triofox solution has a web server component that accepts file requests from client agents 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.

Client agents send HTTPS/SSL requests to the Triofox server. Triofox server can log the requests for auditing purpose and also coordinate the file access and sharing demands.
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.
Simple web based file sharing over HTTPS built directly on your file server.
Reduces costs with VPN (virtual private network) support, and avoid bigger costs later on for compliance issues.
Combines Windows file server security and control with the cloud's ease of use and productivity for share files.
Has a simpler permission migration and configuration strategy than SharePoint, Dropbox or Google Drive - inherit it directly from file server.
Combines NTFS permissions, Active Directory users and drive mappings with file sharing from web browsers and mobile devices.
Maintains data privacy by providing the option to keep data on-premises in traditional file server shares.
Privacy and data ownership comes from the fact that the files and folders stay on your private file servers. The online file sharing feature comes from the Triofox cloud layer surrounding the private file server.
Active directory integration allows private file sharing to business users within the corporation, and business partners as well.

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!
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.
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 shared folders guarded by the same security measures as those from on-premise file servers and governed by the same Active Directory.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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.
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.
