Secure File Transfer
How many times have you seen suspicious or outright phony emails clutter your inbox? Some of those messages ask for help for a faraway prince while others pose as your bank looking to verify your account with your Social Security number. Given the rampant nature of these messages, it’s clear that email is anything but a safe haven. So why are you still sending important documents through the platform?
That’s a question all professionals should now be asking themselves. While it’s true email has proven to be the top channel for communication and collaboration within the enterprise sector throughout the past several decades, it’s clear that many companies are in need of a change.
Today, the information contained in business documents is as sensitive as ever. Yet, it continues to be put at risk by the insecure nature of email. It’s about time that professional users -- when looking to send and receive important documents -- embrace a secure file transfer service.
Email and other popular services, such as FTP, are no longer equipped to meet the collaboration needs of professionals when it comes to functionality, as well as security. Fortunately, YouSendIt presents employees with a better choice for online file transfer.
With an enterprise file transfer tool from YouSendIt, decision-makers can rest assured that information is being shared by employees securely and at a price that can agree with just about any IT budget.
Enterprise-class security from YouSendIt
No longer do you have to worry about the security of your document as it’s flying through cyberspace on its way to a recipient. YouSendIt offers 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer encryption with Class 3 certificates, which ensures that your confidential information is never in harm’s way. And managers can oversee transfers to ensure everything is as it should be.
But that’s not where YouSendIt’s security stops.
Protecting accounts with passwords is a good start for safeguarding information, but what about the files and documents themselves. YouSendIt allows for a password to be implemented at the lowest level to ensure that each and every piece of information used for a managed file transfer solution is protected.
With email, you can never be 100 percent sure that the person opening the file you sent is the intended recipient. Sure, you can cover yourself legally in an email disclaimer, but that will do little good to stop prying eyes from downloading and sharing an attachment. Thankfully, YouSendIt puts an end to such fears with authentication features that ensure only predetermined recipients gain access to shared files.
Email inboxes are some of the most disorganized areas of a business, as most employees routinely keep messages from months, maybe even years, ago. That leaves the information contained in those messages ripe for the taking by a hacker. That’s not the case with YouSendIt, however. File expiration places a specified time period on when documents can be downloaded and opened, preventing either from occurring once time is up.
Never fear, compliance is here
With all those security measures working in your favor, you can bet compliance won’t be a problem. YouSendIt’s file transfer security measures ensure compliance with some of the strictest regulations, including those in the medical and financial industries, among others. And its controls have been highlighted for their effectiveness by professionals within the accounting sector.
