Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Kudos to you for looking into this – way too many overlook it and don’t see it as a security problem but it’s one of the biggest. You can setup basic user or group permissions to protect your shares. That’s the most common – and simplest – way of doing it. This can be configured at the share level. Let us know if you need more specific information.
