Protect Data in Transit

FileCloud has several layers of security available to protect your data when it’s in transit. Administrators can turn on SSL to enable secure sharing. Simply get a new SSL certificate, configure the underlying Apache web server to use the certificate, and enable the HTTPS protocol. We highly recommend disabling HTTP and/or automatically redirecting all HTTP requests to HTTPS.

Protect Data at Rest

FileCloud supports storage-level encryption and provides an easily configurable tool to encrypt files at rest. It uses 256-bit AES encryption, one of the strictest encryption standards in the world. AES encryption is approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for federal use. Additionally, FileCloud has a template for NIST 800-171 within its Compliance Center, making it easy to adhere to this standard.

Manage Storage Encryption

As a FileCloud admin, you can enable storage encryption settings in the admin portal. You can also manage encryption algorithm and key management settings, as well as generating encryption keys. Regularly monitor your encryption status to ensure there are no issues, and set encryption defaults. Define access controls in relation to to encrypted data. Reviewing and updating your encryption settings is quick and easy with FileCloud.

Rating Stars Image 4.5

Security, privacy, and data ownership are fundamental to FileCloud’s security architecture. FileCloud security starts with 256-bit AES SSL encryption at rest, Active Directory integration, two-factor authentication, granular user and file-sharing permissions, client application security policies, anti-virus scanning, unlimited file versioning, file locking, endpoint device protection, and comprehensive audit trails. In addition, Zero Trust File Sharing® provides an extra layer of secure encryption for your sensitive business information. With FileCloud, you can be assured that your corporate data is well protected in your servers and employee devices.

Comprehensive Audit Trail and Logging

FileCloud logs every operation that happens within the system and meets the specs for HIPAA-compliant audit trails (What, When, Who and How):

  • Records who (username) did what (access, modify, and delete) to what data (files, folders), when (timestamp), and how (web, mobile, sync client, and drive).
  • Tracks usernames, IP addresses, timestamps, user actions, and nearly everything else that occurs within FileCloud.
  • Searches transactions and exports audit logs for detailed analysis.

Two-Factor Authentication

2FA Adds an extra layer of protection to FileCloud user logins by combining the use of “something you know” (your login credentials and password) and “something you possess” (a one-time passcode) to access FileCloud. 2FA works by:

  • Adding an extra layer of protection to your FileCloud account.
  • Requiring a passcode in addition to your password whenever you log in to FileCloud or link a new phone or tablet.

Security Policies

Easily configure client application security policies at global or user level to prevent data leaks. Ensure the right people have the right access to company information all the time. Security policies allow you to:

  • Require passcode lock for FileCloud mobile apps.
  • Disable mobile access altogether for specific functions: opening, editing, printing, sharing, or downloading files.
  • Enforce multi-factor authentication.

Granular File Access and Sharing Permissions

With FileCloud, you can create:

  • Private and temporary shares, as well as download restrictions.
  • Free, unlimited client accounts to enable secure, password-protected sharing with external partners.
  • Granular permissions to control and safeguard file sharing.
