How about webdav?
That can provide a nice filesharing/authoring envionment, fully 
compatible with windows where you can create "my favorite network places 
thing" as well as use strict authentication control - all within one 
apache daemon instance.
Of course, this setup is pretty specific, for example if you have a 
developer/web developer team, but it will also cover basic file 
sharing/authoring. There are various authentication modules for apache, 
for ldap, postgresql/mysql, so user management becomes a breeze.
Of course, if you are talking about a domain controller, and a mounted 
"my documents" or something share, then smb would be the way to go.
What are you trying to secure this from, internal people?
