Large local folders and files have traditionally been shared as email attachments that have to be saved on email servers and can get blocked if they're too big. Even if they're not blocked, this approach allows them to be copied and downloaded anywhere.
With CentreStack, you can share folders online and share files over the Internet as web links to local file server network shares, with read and write permissions and expiration dates, or even in a secure data room with auditing features. Enjoy the simplicity of online folder sharing combined with traditional file server security and its shared drives!
There are many ways to share folders and files online. For example, consumer grade file sharing solutions like Dropbox may provide productivity and cost benefits but fail to provide comfortable answers 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:
Accessing shared drives at work is usually based on Windows file server network share and Active Directory, which are very common components of enterprise infrastructure. But when we become road warriors and work-from-home employees, wouldn't it be convenient to have shared work drives naturally converted to shared folders online, governed by the same security principles and the same identity providers at work.
So why give up your Windows file server and adopt public online file sharing when you are outside of the company network? Wouldn't it be easier to add modern online file sharing and folder sharing capabilities to Windows file servers and modernize the file servers we are used to?
