Secure File Sharing and Storage

Using private enterprise storage to create a secure file sharing service. It comes with client agents, drive mapping, file locking, and endpoint protection capabilities.

A story - The company is looking for a secure way to access its Windows file servers online without a VPN

A leading North American oilfield services company provides innovative suites of completion services and technologies for onshore oil and natural gas production. The company has 15 TB data on a single local Windows file server and 4000 total users. The company has site-to-site VPNs for each office and site-to-point VPNs for each user. The company's CIO is concerned that accessing corporate data on Windows file servers via VPN could lead to the spread of ransomware. The company is looking for a secure way to access its Windows file servers online without a VPN.

From File Servers to Secure File Sharing

From File Servers to Secure File Sharing

Public cloud storage and file sharing services have popularized the idea of web-based file sharing. Employees of companies that have standardized their daily work on on-premises internal file servers need to switch between internal file servers and external file sharing services, copying 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!

Consumer File Sharing Challenges

If employees are not provided with an enterprise-wide private file-sharing service, they may opt for cloud solutions such as Dropbox. This approach leads to questions like, "Where exactly is my data? Who has access to it? What are they going to do with it?" And these concerns are not just about cyber threats and hackers, but also about competitors, foreign nationals and even governments.

In addition to the issue of data ownership, IT administrators must also consider the following challenges and implicit policies:

Consumer File Sharing Challenges

Migration Pressure

Avoid being forced into the cloud when users combine tools like Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and email.

Sharing Large Folder

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

Data Sprawl

Avoid the problems caused by splitting data sets between private file servers and public file-sharing solutions like Dropbox.

Migration Costs

Avoid the costs of manually replicating data content and recreating NTFS permissions.

Version Control

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

Security Threats

Eliminate threats from decentralized security and intrusion into personal cloud accounts.

From Private Storage to Cloud Sharing

Access to private, shared on-premise network drives in the workplace is typically based on Windows file server network share and Active Directory, the main components of the enterprise IT infrastructure. But would it not be convenient for road warriors and employees working from home if shared work drives could be naturally transformed into web-based shared folders for mobile sharing and remote access? At the same time, web-based file access is governed by the same security principles and identity providers used at work.

So why give up your private file servers and adopt public cloud file sharing? Would it not be nicer to add modern cloud file-sharing and folder-sharing capabilities to your private file servers and mobilize your file servers?

Secure File Sharing and Storage in a Nutshell

Secure file sharing based on private file server data storage combines the security strength of on-premise infrastructure and the mobility strength of the web and internet in a powerful solution that mobilizes your existing private 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 by combining both strengths with the following benefits.

Guarantee Data Privacy

Businesses can address data privacy concerns by using Triofox to access internal file servers. There is often talk about replacing existing file servers with cloud solutions to reduce costs and administrative overhead. Triofox can facilitate this in any private cloud, but Triofox offers the unique option of using existing file servers data storage to enable cloud file sharing!

Secure File Sharing With Clients

Simplify file sharing across the enterprise with familiar interfaces on any computer or device. Windows and Mac desktops natively display mapped drives in Explorer and Finder. The same experience is available on iOS and Android devices such as iPads, iPhones, and Pixels, or through popular web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Internet Explorer.

Simplify Collaboration

Facilitate collaboration with business partners by giving them access to a limited set of internal files or folders. Share files with non-AD users while maintaining administrative control. Simplify multi-site collaboration with automatic version control 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

Manage users, access controls, and storage centrally for each tenant. Easily keep track of where data resides, who has access, and how it is shared.

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.

Maintain Compliance

Manage users, access controls, and storage centrally 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.

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.

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.

On-Demand Synchronization

Mapped drives display directory structure but delay downloads until a file is used to reduce bandwidth usage and endpoint storage consumption.

Private File Sharing Solution

The enterprise can create a completely private file sharing solution, from the file server storage to the internal Active Directory IT infrastructure and firewalls that protect access to internal digital assets.

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.

Increase the productivity of your mobile workforce!
