Simplifying Mobile Access To File Servers

Hosted file servers are typically accessed using a remote desktop connection, a virtual private network (VPN), or virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). These access methods work well enough for desktop users, but it is quite cumbersome to start because of the interactive nature. For example, a normal workflow will be clicking on some remote desktop icons and connecting to the hosted remote desktop and then using the Windows Explorer within the remote desktop to access hosted file shares.

Simplifying Mobile Access To File Servers


The Mobile Challenge

For mobile workers, it would be nice for files and folders to follow workers on their mobile phones and laptops, so they're readily available when needed. Users, therefore, tend to turn to Dropbox and other 3rd party cloud storage services since they usually work this way. 3rd party cloud storage services are not the hosted file servers. Over time, it is hard to tell which file is where and it will be out of control quickly.

The Mobile Challenge

The CentreStack Solution

CentreStack simplifies mobile file access to hosted file shares by providing an access layer that publishes the file shares over HTTPS for easy access from an explorer-like interface that works from web browsers, mobile devices, or mapped drives on desktops. With CentreStack, there's no need to turn to third-party cloud storage services to simplify mobile access and secure file sharing because the corporate file servers are becoming private file sharing servers for mobile access over HTTPS.

Mobile File Server

CentreStack adds secure remote access and mobile file sharing, disaster prevention and recovery, to file servers on-premises with easy cloud migration. It is the real cloud file server solution you have been looking for!

Remote Access

CentreStack bridges file servers and cloud storage for secure remote access without the need for a VPN.

Web Access

Accessing files and folders directly from within a web browser as if it was as interactive as from a desktop drive.

Mobile Access

CentreStack adds cloud capabilities for secure mobile file sharing from a web browser or a mobile application.

Cloud Migration

CentreStack sets up a hybrid deployment between local file servers and cloud storage that seamlessly turns into mobile file servers.

Mobile Access over Internet


Mobile Access over the Internet

Step 1: Use Active Directory Credentials

Users enter existing Active Directory (AD) user names and passwords on any supported client.

Step 2: Secure Credential Transfer

Credentials are passed securely over HTTPS to the CentreStack server.

Step 3: Pass Firewalls

The external firewall only needs to open port 443 for HTTPS traffic.

Step 4: Credentials Passed to Tenant

CentreStack finds the user's tenant and passes the credentials to the corresponding AD domain controller.

Step 5: Access Internal File Server

CentreStack uses the authentication token from the domain controller to access internal file shares.

CentreStack Security Benefits

By keeping files on the hosted file server and maintaining Active Directory and NTFS permission, productivity is increased without sacrificing security!


Data stays on hosted file servers. Existing permissions govern remote access. Data privacy is further maintained through isolated management of users and access rights in each tenant.


Use existing AD users and NTFS folder permissions with a simple interface to identify remotely accessible file shares that automatically appear in the user's mapped drives.


CentreStack allows admins to run HIPAA or GDPR compliance checks and generate reports demonstrating compliance for file access and collaboration.

Productivity Benefits

Enhanced productivity for remote workers and mobile devices accessing hosted file servers


Files are cached locally, so access feels instant without the tedious setup of remote desktops or VPN file sharing. Users get the benefit of local performance while working remotely.


Legacy applications may continue to use the hosted file shares, which remain unchanged as CentreStack provides remote access to the same file shares from any device.


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.
