Keeping your data secure is what we are about
BigFilebox is really secure, yet super easy to use.
By default it...
- Ensures you know exactly who you've given access to your data.
- Records who's accessing data via the audit system.
- Alerts when data is accessed through our notification system.
- Issues one click tokens that allow you dispense with usernames or passwords
- Encrypts data using Bank-grade 256bit SSL encryption
- Runs in built virus scanning for total peace of mind.
BigFilebox puts the highest value on the security of the files you upload. All communication between our server and your users is protected by 256 bit encryption. Put simply, encryption is the translation of data (usually plain text) into secret code. To read an encrypted file you must have a key or password to decrypt (or recover) the information. This is the same system used for home banking and ensures the security of your data.
We are regularly audited to ensure our systems are safe for your data. Requirements for PCI compliance ensure that our system is maintained securely, we employ strong access control measures, regularly test and monitor our networks and maintain an information security policy.
Secure and reliable hosting
BigFilebox is hosted on multiple servers and in multiple data centres to make sure we're always available for you. This system of clustered hosting avoids the intolerable situation a single server can cause if it goes offline or is not functioning properly, which could cause our website to go offline. Multiple servers mean that traffic can simply be moved to a different server without interruption to your service.
Antivirus scanning is built in to the BigFilebox system. To protect you and your clients, all uploaded files are scanned, and only files that pass the scan are available for download.
