Some advice please folks!
I'm trying to come up with a solution to this problem:
We've got about 200 users, split over 55 sites who move around between the sites a lot. Many of them are rural sites with awful 'net access, but they all have their own 2003 domain and servers. They're separate domains as the sites operate as separate companies, but these staff are shared (complicated situation).
Users are now gathering highly confidential data, this was saved locally but as they're now moving between sites they're wanting to be able to access this at any site, at any time.
In general the users have very, very poor computer skills.
Any suggestions how to manage this?
Options I was considering were:
1. Sharepoint - limited knowledge myself on this, not sure it'd be simple enough for users (yes some are that bad).
2. Syncing remote shared areas to a central server, problem with this is that if they're on another site,they'll have another domain so permissions might be an issue. Downside is access speeds to the server could be slow due to garbage internet connections.
3. Sod permission - give them a logon for the central server and share from there. Downside is access speeds to the server could be slow.
4. USB pens - problems sharing data, people lose them, boss would shoot me even if we encrypted them.
Any suggestions greatly welcomed! :D
