Triofox enhances existing Windows file servers with secure remote access and mobile file sharing.
Triofox adds cloud enhancements to existing Windows file servers with secure remote access, mobile file sharing, data protection, and cloud migration while addressing business concerns about security, privacy, compliance, and control.
With more and more businesses adopt the work-from-home policy, the mobile workforce is looking for an easy way to access corporate file servers protected by the Windows infrastructure. There are many Windows file server features such as the drive mapping, file locking, active directory, and NTFS permissions that we use every single day. However, when it comes to storage services and applications, there are also Office 365 OneDrive, SharePoint Online, Azure Files, Dropbox, Box, ShareFile, etc public cloud storage services that compete with Windows file servers for your data. However, for various reasons, such as data ownership or line-of-business applications that had to run on the Windows file server, the Windows file servers are still the storage and collaboration solution for your enterprise. Shall you give up your Windows file server and adopt these public cloud storage services? Or shall we add modern cloud services to Windows file servers and take the file servers back to the future!
You have tried VPN, FTP or WebDav, but none of those are the right solution. Your mobile workforce prefers a Dropbox or OneDrive-like modern access solution that combines web-browser, desktop/laptop, and mobile access and yet at the same time integrates with the Windows file server network shares and the Active Directory identity and permissions control.
Triofox integrates web-browser, desktop/laptop, and mobile access with data protection and cloud migration for your Windows file servers! Triofox solution presents drive mapping, and file locking, in addition to the mobile applications and web browser access to the mobile workforce, without the need of using the VPN. The solution also simplifies work-from-home security since it locks down the network protocols to SMB/CIFS for network shares and LDAPS for active directories.
There are several benefits. First Trifox presents a drive mapping interface over the HTTPS protocol so the end-user doesn't require extra training because everyone at work pretty much knows a mapped drive in Windows Explorer. Secondly, the Windows device, Mac device, web browser and mobile applications form a consistent client-agent-sets for the remote and mobile file access. Since it is consistent, it is convenient and productive. Third, unlike VPN that tunnels through to the corporate network from remote unmanaged devices and potentially expands the cyber-security attack surfacces, the Triofox solution locks down the inbound protocol to HTTPS and locks down the inside network traffics to SMB and LDAP protocol. The end result is that it is a more secure and yet more productive way to access corporate Windows file servers.
