Why do we use ShareFile?
ShareFile makes it easy for you to securely store and share your confidential business files — and safely access them from anywhere on any device. ShareFile safeguards your files with state-of-the-art encryption protocols and datacenters equipped to protect against data loss, even in emergencies. Configurable controls let you choose who can access files and folders, set alerts and notifications of activity, and even set expiration dates on sensitive files. And our mobile apps ensure you can access your files from any device, anytime — without compromising security.
File Transfer and Storage
All communications and data sharing between ShareFile and the user are encrypted using either Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption protocols and up to AES 256-bit encryption. Your files are also protected while at rest on our servers with AES 256-bit encryption.
Our servers reside in SSAE 16 accredited datacenters with features including hurricane-rated roofs and multiple redundant power sources. All data is automatically updated to servers in separate locations. We perform regular backups on all data, including off-site data backups, to protect against almost all disaster scenarios.
ShareFile mobile apps allow you to securely and instantly access your files from any device. Track account activity, set expiration policies for files saved in the app, and remotely lock or wipe data from a lost or stolen device — quickly and easily.
With ShareFile user settings, you can control who accesses your data. Give employees and clients access to only the files you want them to see and receive alerts when someone downloads a file. File versioning lets you track file changes and access older versions of files as needed. Workflow audit trails, configurable permissions including multi-factor authentication, and intuitive reporting tools provide even more granular control.
