webdav security and Netdrive

Last Modified: 2015-08-12
Hi, I got Webdav setup on a Synology diskstation and use it in conjuntion with NetDrive.   Seems to work pretty well.  THough, I don't know how secure Webdav.   I was also considering using Netdrive for large files like Autocad and Photoshop.  Though, I'm concerned with how it caches data and syncs with the file server.  Anyone uses Netdrive for these purposes and can provide feedback?  Also, any thoughts on security for setting up something similar with my Windows Server clients?  VPN is such a pain to use and I like this alternative but I'm very concerned about security.
