Yes.. now almost all linux latest distro comes with ability to work upon NTFS partition. You do not need any third party too apart of just mounting it.

To summarize both:
1. If your Linux host is both dualboot and you want to do read/write to the ntfs on the same workstation/pc
--> My advice is don't do it. NTFS write is dangerous and might corrupt your filesystem. Copying files from ntfs is still fine. As long as your Linux Distro's kernel is compiled with NTFS support (kernel module or into kernel) then you can do so.

2. If your Linux host is sharing files from another windows workstation/pc
--> Use samba
--> Use Microsoft NFS along with your Linux NFS (Either WIndows/Linux can be NFS Server)
