Businesses struggle to scale their remote access solutions efficiently, facing limitations with traditional cloud services and file-sharing setups.

Identifying these challenges is crucial for enhancing your remote CAD access. We will guide you through solutions to address them effectively.

Existing Solutions and Their Limitations

In the realm of remote CAD access, businesses across the engineering and architectural sectors face a common set of challenges that existing solutions fail to adequately address. From slow and inefficient file access over VPNs to the lack of real-time collaboration features and inadequate security measures, the limitations of current market offerings are clear. These shortcomings not only hinder productivity but also pose significant barriers to seamless, secure remote collaboration on CAD projects.

VPN Inefficiencies

VPNs, while traditional, are notorious for slow file transfers and inefficiencies, especially when accessing large CAD files, leading to frustration and productivity loss.

Collaboration Hurdles

Solutions like Microsoft Teams and AutoCAD Cloud fall short in providing essential features like file locking for exclusive editing, crucial for effective CAD collaboration.

Security Gaps

Existing cloud solutions often lack advanced security measures against threats like ransomware, leaving sensitive CAD data vulnerable to attacks.

Cost and Scalability Concerns

Many competing solutions, such as Box and AutoCAD Cloud, are deemed too expensive and lack the flexibility to scale storage efficiently, posing significant cost concerns.

Cloud Drive Mapping

Drive mapping is an important feature for online file access. End users can easily drag and drop files and folders from a set of mapped drives over the Internet without a VPN connection.

Global File Locking

File locking is a vital feature for online file access and team collaboration to avoid conflicts. End users need to control global concurrent online file access by using file locking to maintain consistency.

Permission Control

Dropbox and Google Drive don't have the same level of centralized control as a file server. You might miss the NTFS permissions and the ability to know where your data is, who has access to it and what they're doing with it.
