File Sharing and Secure Email
WHAT IS FILE SHARING AND SECURE EMAIL?
Secure File Sharing is a term used to describe sending files with sensitive data securely, whilst being able to collaborate both internally and externally. Gartner call it “content collaboration”, and it’s also known as “file sync and share” or “EFSS”.
Secure file sharing enables organisations to secure files and data at all stages, in transit, at rest and in storage whilst maintaining ease of collaboration for employees or external partners.
With compliance standards such as GDPR to follow, secure file sharing keeps your data secure but crucially auditable. Therefore, you always have control and a log of what data is where and who it has been accesed by.
Secure email is a term used to describe a way to send a file to someone in a safe and efficient manner. The terms “ad hoc” or “person to person” are also sometimes used.
A secure email solution will quite simply allow you to create a single job, enter the email address of your recipient, add a download link and press send. That’s it. No further details concerning your recipient are required and all they need in order to receive the file is a standard email account, you can make this even more secure if you wish.
Secure email file transfer is typically implemented by businesses that need to gain greater visibility of files leaving and entering the organisation. More often than not they’re implemented to replace consumer-grade solutions like Dropbox, WeTransfer or other consumer cloud based systems.
