FIPS 140-2 Encryption Module

FileCloud uses FIPS 140-2, NIST Certified Encryption Module to encrypt files at rest and in transit. FIPS 140-2 is a US and Canadian government standard that specifies the security requirements for cryptographic modules that protect sensitive information.

FileCloud Received Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice Distinction the fourth consecutive time! 92% of our customers are willing to recommend us.

FileCloud meets the necessary security requirements for cryptographic modules that are formalized by the Federal Information Processing Standard fips security (FIPS publication 140-2), validated by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST 800-171) and Canadian Communication Security Establishment (CSE). FIPS compliant encryption module is required for  US Federal organizations, as well as  government contractors that work for them. FileCloud’s step-by-step process makes it easy to learn FIPS 140-2 compliance and implement it within your infrastructure.

GDPR Compliance

FileCloud is an enterprise file sharing and sync platform to support GDPR across private, hybrid and public cloud. FileCloud enables administrators to discover and manage sensitive data including pattern search.

NIST 800-171 Compliance

The U.S. government requires federal contractors to comply with the NIST 800-171 security standard to ensure the security of controlled unclassified information (CUI) in organizations.

FIPS 140-2 Encryption

FileCloud provides necessary tools to help you to be compliant with NIST certified FIPS 140-2 standard encryption module.


FileCloud’s content search indexes all the files and its content. Users not only can search using a name or partial name of a file, but also use keywords in the content of the file. Any worthwhile FIPS 140-2 encryption software has to have advance search functionalities.

Quick Access to Data

FileCloud provides multiple options to access remote data via browser or FileCloud’s clients, such as FileCloud drive. When requested by regulatory organizations, customers can grant any of these access methods to the regulators.

Prevent File Deletion

FileCloud could help you prevent file records from accidental deletion. If a user deletes any sensitive files, FileCloud can be configured to send email alerts to administrators and supervisors. Even if a file is deleted, it is not purged from the system; administrators can restore the files.

Report and Audit

All file changes are kept with an audit trail and information about who changed the file and when (timestamp) it was changed. Audit logs can be searched based on keywords or by user giving administrators the right tools to triage quickly.

Data Retention and Archiving

FileCloud features the most robust data storing, archiving, and retrieving settings in the industry, enabling customers or solution providers to create a compliant-ready enterprise file access and sharing solution.

Data Loss Prevention

FileCloud’s “High Availability” (HA) architecture helps customers build redundancy across all layers of its infrastructure, ensuring strong protection against losing access to the records.

ViewOnly Access

Comprehensive system handles a variety of permissions. FileCloud can allow enforcing varied levels of access, ranging from full access to ‘view only’ access, which allows users to view files but not download.
