Protect Your Data with Enterprise-Ready Security and Compliance
There’s a core challenge facing enterprises today. In order to stay competitive, companies must share information and collaborate freely on business content while simultaneously meeting stringent security and regulatory compliance.
Traditional means of collaboration—email, FTP, and couriers—are vulnerable to security breaches. Email is susceptible to viruses, and when users send files as attachments, you can’t track or regulate them. FTP is an outdated solution that’s confusing to users, so they find compromising workarounds like sharing passwords. And FTP files never expire, so your intellectual property remains exposed. Finally, when you use a courier, you never know who opens the package on the receiving end, or how long it remains lying around their office.
YouSendIt for Business, on the other hand, is an online collaboration tool that is both efficient and secure, with built-in systems that allow your organization to track and govern all file sharing activity.

Enterprise-Class Data Center Security
YouSendIt has obtained a Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 2 attestation. Data at rest is AES 256-bit encrypted, and all data in transit is encrypted using 128-bit SSL encryption with Class 3 certificates. YouSendIt’s servers are hosted in two data centers—one in California, US, and the second in London, England. Each facility is protected by double-wall construction and employs biometric and video surveillance, physical security, seismic protection, water suppression, and dry-pipe fire protection technologies to prevent damage or loss from fire, earthquakes, flooding, and other natural disasters. All servers are secured in a locked room with limited access restricted to authorized individuals. Access is auditable by password and biometric scan for entry. In addition, YouSendIt’s enterprise-class data centers have built-in system redundancy and high-performance load balancers.
Network and System Security
YouSendIt leverages ISP- and enterprise-grade firewalls that provide IP filtering and DoS protection. Proactive network scans are performed regularly, blocking Internet spiders and search engines from indexing files.
In addition to a hardened operating system, YouSendIt for Business uses password and privilege policies to authenticate and authorize users. All passwords and credentials are encrypted during transmissions. With Active Directory integration, users are deployed and managed within the customer network. No passwords are stored outside of the corporate network, and the administrator can tightly manage the entire process.
Data Protection During Transfer and At Rest
