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.
Data is managed in place on existing file shares. Authenticated users access internal file shares remotely based on existing permissions.
Use existing AD users and NTFS folder permissions to automatically present a user's assigned file shares in their mapped drive.
Signing into a traditional VPN grants access to the entire internal network. CentreStack only exposes the files users need.
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.
Mapped drives delay downloads until files are opened and cached locally for fast future access, significantly reducing bandwidth and storage consumption. Users get local performance when working remotely.
Line of business and legacy applications are unaffected as internal users can continue to work without making any changes using the internal mapped drives they have grown accustomed to.
Minimize user training with a mapped drive that works the same on-premises or remotely. Provide a seamless local experience for users even when they are offline.
