It's the most restrictive; from a security aspect it'd be better to control it both on the NTFS level as well as the share level. Your advice was 100% accurate, NTFS would be the 'catch-all'.
It's hard to remember that you were an MS lackey once upon a time....

How does Linux handle file sharing? Does it have separate sharing and file system level permissions, or is it all bundled into one simple and secure methodology? The reason I like just setting Share to Everyone and then managing on an NTFS level is because it becomes such a pain in the ass to make sure that permission levels are equivalent across the board. Obviously, share level restrictions would add another layer of security, but damn... things get hairy.
