Encryption In-Transit and At Rest With data interception and data leak on the rise, FileCloud uses the most secure technologies to satisfy any demanding usage situation. The SSL/TLS secure tunnel secures files during transmission and protects from data interception. In addition, FileCloud has adopted the 256-bit AES encryption for encrypting data at rest, which is impossible to decipher in case of data leak. This allows enterprises of any size to secure their data using FileCloud’s built-in secure technologies. Just configure and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with complete security.
Protect Data in Transit FileCloud 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 HTTPS protocol. We highly recommend disabling HTTP and/or automatically re-directing 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. FileCloud 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 for federal use.
Seamless End User Decryption FileCloud administrators need not worry about end user experience after encryption is enabled. A FileCloud user’s experience won’t change, and decryption happens automatically when files are securely accessed via FileCloud.
