Secure File Sharing for Clients Using FileCloud

Secure Client Portal software

Securely share files with clients, vendors, and partners. Your customers will be able to review, download, edit and upload documents from their personal devices anytime and anywhere. Share your files easily and securely by creating a link to a public or private share. Limit the maximum number of downloads for a shared file, automatically expire a share link after a certain time, and have anonymous file uploads.

File Sharing Portal

The client file sharing portal is accessible 24/7, on any device, from anywhere, so your team, clients, and partners will never have to worry about missing out on important information while they’re on the go. Plus, you can run FileCloud under your own business domain with custom branded logos, backgrounds, email templates and TOS.

Data Governance

With the increasing data security regulations and requirements, one small misstep can increase the risk of regulatory violations. FileCloud takes care of that for you by simplifying data governance through automatic document life cycle management, such as file retention and archival. FileCloud’s Smart DLP (data leak prevention) system prevents accidental sensitive data sharing by end users.

What is a Client Portal?

With added regulations on top of increased ransomware and malware attacks, protecting sensitive data and files is more important than ever. Sharing sensitive files via email doesn’t work anymore in terms of security and meeting compliance regulations.

That’s why many companies and organizations have turned to client portals. Client portals are a secure, specific location online that clients can access at any time to view, upload, and download documents and reports and communicate with your business.

The best client portals are easy-to-create and use and offer branding options so companies can incorporate their brand in all parts of their process.
