Managed File Transfer
Many options are available to professional users to satisfy their needs to share, send and receive files, documents and other information over the Internet. There is email, many employees’ go-to platform for enterprise communications, or FTP, an aging, yet still widely used method. Unfortunately, neither of those offers the security and functionality that modern businesses require.
Instead, companies should be turning their attention to managed file transfer solutions delivered through the cloud. The technology offered by YouSendIt is the only way an employee can know without a doubt that files or documents reached their intended destination quickly and securely.
No longer can companies rely on insecure FTP clients. The cost of doing so is simply too great, literally. It’s been shown that companies lacking a managed file transfer solution for file sharing are 11 times more likely to suffer a security incident. And at an average of $640,000 in damages per incident, there are few companies out there that can afford to take such a risk.
Unlike other managed file transfer vendors, YouSendIt offers a comprehensive, centralized and secure solution that is up to the task. No other product provides the same level of simplicity and customization that makes YouSendIt’s file sharing tool so effective for a wide range of companies and industries.
Lock down file sharing
Security should be among companies’ top concerns when sharing information over the internet. Despite all its benefits, the Internet is still a risky environment, and companies can’t lose sight of this when transferring potentially sensitive files and documents over the web.
That’s why it’s necessary to have a managed file transfer service that will protect documents against myriad threats. YouSendIt has you covered there, as its platform leverages 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer encryption with Class 3 certificates. In other words, you have little to fear.
Encryption provides a layer of encryption for managed file transfers that remains with documents throughout the whole process. And relying on Class 3 certificates means the security is kicked up a notch, because the verification and checking of online identities is carried out by an independent third party. Class 3 ensures both your safety and that of the stakeholders with whom you are sharing information.
Also, your company’s IT department can monitor and oversee downloading activity to ensure that nothing malicious enters the network.
Keep an eye on information to meet compliance
Organizations in highly regulated industries like healthcare and the financial sector are now in need of hosted services and solutions that can comply with federal and industry regulations.
In addition to its robust security, YouSendIt also adheres to the mandates of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act.
The PCI DSS governs companies’ handling of payment information. Any debit or credit card numbers and other payment data must be secured at all times, whether housed on company servers or while in transit to business partners or credit organizations.
HIPAA is similar, but deals with highly confidential medical information. Everything from the names and addresses contained on health records to diagnoses, medications and existing conditions all must be protected.
The GLB Act is better known in the industry as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. Like the PCI DSS, the law deals with financial data and applies to banks, securities companies and insurance firms, among many others.
Through centralized oversight and the ability to closely monitor data transmissions, YouSendIt’s managed file transfer tool offers the functionality to satisfy all three regulations, as well as many more.
