Wichita, KS, December 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- SendThisFile® today is announcing increased file security using 256-bit AES encryption security for its file sharing service.
The system update boosts file storage protection to all SendThisFile file servers, using military-grade encryption to improve privacy for SendThisFile customers.
"With 256-bit AES encryption, customers with highly sensitive data can now use SendThisFile to send large files," said Alex Hund, SendThisFile Senior Brand Manager. "This is particularly important to customers in highly regulated industries such as banking and legal, who must comply with both state and federal laws."
256-bit AES encryption protects files temporarily stored on SendThisFile file servers, which are used to distribute shared files. Once expired, files are automatically and securely removed from servers.
"A great benefit of our service is the automatic removal of files from files servers," said Scott Sexton, SendThisFile VP of Business Development. "Users never have to remember to remove files that are no longer being shared, greatly reducing time spent managing data."
256-bit AES encryption security allows SendThisFile to meet or exceed multiple regulations and standards including HIPAA, SAS70 Type II, SSAE 16, PCI DSS, and FIPS 140-2.
256-bit AES encryption security is automatically enabled and available today to all SendThisFile customers.
Since 2003 SendThisFile, Inc. has been an industry leader in providing managed file transfers to its clients. Its service provides an uncomplicated and secure way for computer users to send large files that are too big for typical email servers. With over 1.6 million users served and more than 63 million files transferred and customers in over 160 countries, SendThisFile is a proven and reliable partner for Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and individual users.
