Seeking a solution for file sharing...

Last Modified: 2015-07-01
We have a customer with 11 employees.  They have a specific shared folder on the file server that everyone accesses.  However, only two employees need access to the shared folder 24/7 and/or when these two employees are not in the office.  These two employees would also like to access certain files from their i-phones, i-pads, droids, etc... when they are not in the office.  The REST of the employees don't need access from outside of the office.

I am aware of Office 365's capabilities but, doesn't that mean that Everyone/All 11 employees would need to subscribe when only 2 employees need outside/remote access?

Thoughts?  Possible cost effective solutions?  Thanks!
