Automated data handling by our file system ensures that your files remain under your full control. At no time does anyone at SendThisFile view or otherwise access your data. Once a file has reached its expiration date, our system automatically and permanently deletes the file from our servers. All available file storage space is constantly being utilized by the file system, and the storage space that once held your file is rewritten to hold new files as they are uploaded to our servers. SendThisFile does not back up customer files, so you are in complete control of all copies of your files at all times.
All data transmissions are protected using military grade 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption security. This ensures that your data is never exposed during transport from your computer to our data center. In the unlikely event of data being intercepted during transport, our end-to-end SSL encryption ensures your data is unreadable.
Every SendThisFile account holder is required to sign-in using a Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) enabled browser, thereby protecting the password and user ID login information from electronic eavesdropping. No user may access an account without a unique, registered user ID and password. HTTPS connections are used to secure web payment transactions, and for other highly sensitive transactions that occur between computer systems and servers. HTTPS ensures a secure pathway is created over the Internet, wherein multiple systems interconnect and pass information between each other.
To further protect your data, every SendThisFile paid plan has the option to password protect file download links. Password protection has the primary advantage of limiting file access to only the party with whom you wish to share the file. With password protection enabled, no one may download your file without the correct password.
For customers demanding the highest level of data sensitivity, SendThisFile provides the option of encrypting your file while is stored on our server. This extra security measure protects your data in the extremely unlikely event of unauthorized access to the data servers. Even if an intruder could access your data, it would be encrypted using military-grade 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) security. This feature is only available for paid plans.
In addition our application allows the option to use many advanced security features. Secure Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) allows you to use your preferred email system to deliver our automated notification email in a secure manner. Also available are advanced administrator controls for customization, and even isolated file storage to ensure that there is no intermingling of data.
