Security concerns

You can probably think of some very high-profile data breaches that have made the news recently. Usually, someone besides the hacker is responsible for the breach. That person locked the door, but forgot to close the window. On-premises solutions use existing security in the IT environment to protect files while still allowing users access to the data. So you're in control of security, not someone else.

Today's workers are familiar with Dropbox, Google Drive, or one of the many file sharing options available on the cloud. Many ask their IT department, why should I have to switch to an on-premises system for work documents? Novell argues there are some reasons to use an on-premises file sharing solution for business documents, and users should evaluate their situation before abandoning internal servers.

From time to time, you may read about cloud security being a mild concern, but for the most part the cloud is favorably hyped as an all-encompassing option. Once you dig below the surface and compare options, however, there are user advantages that go along with the IT department's drive toward an on-premises file sharing solution.

The end goal with such collaboration technology is to enable workers to be more productive while keeping work environments more secure and manageable. Good on-premises file sharing tools are just as easy to use as the cloud-based solutions you might be familiar with, so consider how you and your organization can benefit from the following points.
