Frequently Asked Questions

Secure file sharing is a way of transferring files between two or more computers, all while ensuring that the data remains secure and confidential. Encryption, data loss prevention (DLP), advanced threat protection (ATP), and multi-factor authentication (MFA) are just some of the security features used to enable secure file sharing.

Secure file sharing typically involves encrypting files during transit and ensuring they can only be accessed by users with the correct credentials, typically a username and password. Once downloaded, the files are also encrypted locally on the user’s device. This prevents unauthorized users from viewing them without the correct credentials. Some secure file sharing systems also provide an audit trail, so that administrators can track who has accessed each file.

Secure file sharing helps organizations keep their data safe and secure. By encrypting the data as it is transferred, secure file sharing prevents hackers and malicious actors from stealing or altering data. Additionally, secure file sharing can help organizations comply with data regulations and industry standards.

Regular file sharing is not encrypted, which means the data can be intercepted and read. Secure file sharing, on the other hand, uses encryption algorithms to scramble the data before it is sent, making it unreadable to anyone without the encryption key.

Yes, secure file sharing requires a secure connection. This means that the connection must use a secure protocol such as SFTP, FTPS, or HTTPS.
