We need our users (6000+) to be able to access files from their "home" and "shared" drives outside of our AD network.
We have considered VPN or global connect solutions, but these are too complicated for most of our users. (teachers and students) We also use Google Docs extensively, but we need something that can handle more file types.
What is everyone using for file/data access outside the network? Needs to be secure as some data is sensitive.
We used to use Novell Webaccess, but killed it when we recently switched to Microsoft AD. Currently we have nothing in place and our users are clamoring for dropbox type services. We are reticent to go this direction due to student data concerns.
