Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) have been the traditional answer for secure remote access to network file shares on internal file servers. But they tend to be difficult to support and manage. Users often have trouble connecting to the file server from mobile devices or complain about other connectivity issues and slow performance.
CentreStack provides a compelling alternative to VPN based access by publishing file shares over HTTPS/SSL and at the same time, providing desktop agents and mobile applications for a complete end-to-end access solution. This makes it really easy for users to remotely access internal file shares while they’re on the go without compromising security. In fact, security is increased because administrators only need to provide access to the specific file shares a user can access. This presents a smaller attack surface to hackers since the entire network need not be exposed to each authorized user.
With CentreStack, businesses get all the security of traditional file servers without VPN headaches. In fact, security is enhanced since file access is restricted to assigned users through protocols like LDAP and CIFS/SMB which doesn't expose the whole network as a VPN would.
Enhanced productivity for remote workers and mobile devices with on-premise control and security!
CentreStack has desktop and mobile applications. Unlike VPN, which is a generic network technology, CentreStack has applications on the end point device ready to help with file and folder access.
