What is the benefit of share permissions over NTFS permissions?

A Share permissions can be enabled to secure resources across the network that are not on an NTFS partition.

Share permissions can be used even without a NTFS filesystem. They only take effect when a user connects to a resource over the network. NTFS permissions can protect at the file level while share permissions can only be applied to the folder level. Users logged on locally or remotely to the system where the NTFS permissions are applied may be impacted by NTFS permissions.
