Secure File Sharing
These days, cloud services are getting breached left and right either by government or criminal organizations.
While secure file sharing does not seem to be bullet proof anymore, the best approach is to make it as difficult as possible for the intruders. So, how does one share large files securely and safely?
Share Files Securely Without Uploading Anywhere
|99% of file sharing solutions will upload your files to their servers and send a link to the recipient. This puts your files at great risk because the moment you upload them on some unknown servers, you have lost control. Binfer, on the other hand, lets you share files directly from your device to the recipient. It is the worlds first true, direct and secure file sharing solution.|
Encrypted & Secure.
Encrypt File Transfers at Source
There is a big difference between encrypted at source and encrypted at site. End-to-end encryption prevents intermediaries from accessing your documents. It provides a stronger protection during transfers.
Encryption keys are kept at provider’s location and shared. Once, someone obtains a key, they can unlock all documents.
Binfer allows for end-to-end encryption. Files can be encrypted at source and transferred with 256 bit AES encryption.
Keys are stored on your computer and not ours. Keys are unique to each user and are not shared.
Know who has accessed what, when and from where
A single breach can disrupt your operation and leave your company struggling to regain the trust of partners and customers.
Shockingly, most popular file sharing services do not provide adequate tracking. This makes it very hard to know who is accessing your files.
If there is a breach then data is compromised instantly.
Detailed tracking such as who accessed what file, when and from which IP address. You will know exactly who has transferred what.
Even if Binfer site is hacked, your documents are safe since they reside on your computer and not ours.
Verify identity of sender and receiver
Verified identities are critical for secure exchange of information. Only intended recipients should receive the files. The identity of the recipient should be certain.
Don’t be deceived by false security illusion created by cryptic id’s or complex connection exchanges. They don’t mean much.
It may look cool like a Hollywood style spy movie but in reality any file sharing system that cannot guarantee the identity of the sender or receiver is not secure.
An email address is the most reliable form of identity. Binfer uses email address to create connections. Files cannot be exchanged unless the recipient has clicked a link sent in the email or accepted the connection request.
This simple yet effective scheme ensure that your files are delivered only to intended recipient.
You are responsible for your privacy
The 800lb gorilla of cloud sharing has said it loud and clear. If you do not take control of your privacy in your own hands then only you are to blame when it gets compromised.
Your documents may be accessed unauthorized and you may not even know about it. The providers themselves may be sniffing your documents to serve you with more ads.
When file transfers are direct, you will have 100% control over privacy.
Your files are more secure with you
Cloud services are gold mines for hackers. Why would they spend resources trying to break into your computer when hacking a cloud service can provide unimaginable rewards?
There are too many things that can go wrong with cloud services. Company shutdown. Rouge employee. Server theft. Hacker intrusion. Buggy code. All of which can be avoided by keeping documents safely under your control.
Storage providers may shutdown or disappear unexpectedly with your documents.
Even if we are closed or non operational for some unforeseen reason, you will not lose any of your documents. They are with you not us.
