"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

VPN is the accepted standard and any direct Internet connection would be unsafe.

So then consider commercial Dropbox as a way to share files. If using Windows 10 consider One Drive.

You could either host or rent a VPS and host an FTP server...all remote sites will have access to it with user/group control and they can even map network folders as standard drives for convenience....so everyone (with permissions) can access everything and files can be drag dropped...
