We are a medical facility, under HIPAA regulations, that has a need to securely provide access to resources internally on our workgroup network to users outside the network. How could we share a file/folder so that people internally can use the file/folder but also allow outside users to the same resource for daily work? Please advice.

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

My wife has a similar requirement (also under HIPAA), and Sharefile.com was a good solution. With audit trails, it is easy to find out who accessed files and when, even receiving alerts for file uploads and downloads. They offer a Sync feature that could help you manage the external aspect.

    As you grow you'll probably want to bring that sort of stuff in house. At which point something like SharePoint becomes a good option.
