ipad sync files with windows share

I have some users who use an IPad when they are outside the company.
However they  need the possibility to access some data (pictures, pdf ..) from our network.
I have created a dedicated network share where all users can copy files, pictures ….
All IPad users should have access to these share and should be able to open files, an copy new pictures
These files should be visible on the IPad. A file service like OneDrive, dropbox can offer this, however this needsthe user to be logged in to sync the files.
I need a solution where the files are synced, even when user is not logged in (sync should run as a windows service on a server)
