All communications between ShareFile and the user are encrypted
using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This is the same functionality
used by banks and popular e-commerce services such as Amazon.com for
secure communication. ShareFile also offers the ability to store
your files encrypted when they are at rest on our servers, adding an
additional layer of security.
When ShareFile users create folders in the system, only the
specified users that are designated by owner of the folder are able
to access the contents of those folders. Users who do not have
access to the folder will not even see the folder in their view of
Each user of the system has a unique login and password. All user
passwords are hashed in the ShareFile database, meaning that not
even the ShareFile support personnel have the ability to view or in
any way determine a user's password.
ShareFile's computer network security is subject to daily security
audits by a third-party security monitoring firm. This helps us stay
one step ahead of the latest security threats.
