Guide to Enterprise Security Settings

This is an in depth look at one of the most important settings for Enterprise Branded Upload Forms – the Security settings. In this section you have the ability to tighten or loosen up the restrictions on who has access to use your Branded Upload Form.

Once you’ve logged in click on ‘Enterprise’ on the menu bar




Here you will see a list of all of the Branded Upload Forms you have created. Next click on ‘Security’ on the sub-menu bar.



This is the Security section’s homepage. The following sections are where you make all of the changes to your Security settings. We’ll go through each of them. The first sections is Access Control – this is where you make changes to who has access to your Branded Upload Form. Click ‘Expand’ to change the settings.



In the first portion of the section is where you can add specific email addresses or email domains to either be allowed to access the Branded Upload Form or specifically be blocked from it. Simply enter the email address or domain and click on Allow or Block. If you choose to block the email address or domain you are done as there aren’t any more choices to make. If you choose to Allow the email address or domain you can change it further by the drop down menu to either allow the email address or domain to either “Receive Only,” “Send Only,” or “Send and Receive”. Once all your changes have been made click Update and they are saved!


The next section is where you can set up Password Protected Downloads. This is an additional layer of security that we offer the individuals using your Upload Form. This will give you the option to either mandate or give the choice to your senders to assign a password to the files they are sending.

The first option is to not require a download password. If you aren’t interested in having senders assign download passwords choose this option. The second choice is for you, as the admin of the account, to choose the download password for each recipient that will be used on the Upload Form. Simply enter their email address and the password you would like for them to use to download files and then click Add. The third option is to require that all recipients be registered users with SendThisFile and they need to use their log in credentials in order to download the file – for info on how to set up users on your Branded Upload Form click here. The last option is to allow the sender to set the download on each of the files that they send. This will require that the sender communicate the password to the recipient through another means as SendThisFile will not tell the recipient what the password to download the file is. Click the checkbox next to “Download Password Required” to mandate that a download password be entered in order for the Upload Form to work. You can also change the complexity settings for the download password in the section below that option. After you have made all your changes click ‘Update’ and they will be saved!




The last section is fairly simple. Here is where you can set the parameters for the users you set up.  Simply check the box if you would like to require that senders are verified, not to allow them to sign themselves up, and allow new users to change their password. The choices here are dependent on what you and your organization need and want.


That is a complete breakdown of the Security section for your Enterprise Branded Upload Form! If at any point in time you need additional clarification please contact our Enterprise support here!
