SureDrop features state-of-the-art encryption for secure file sharing and collaboration
When searching for a secure file sharing and collaboration tool, large organisations require more than simply ease of use.
Data security has become an essential criterion when considering any cloud based solution. From our security credentials to practical tips for using the software, here are the answers to some frequently asked questions.
If you have any specific questions, please contact us.
Three essential ingredients for best practice data security that have been adopted by SureDrop:. First, the use of standards-based encryption. Specifically AES 256 bit. Second, state-of-the-art encryption key management. Unlike other encrypted file sharing applications, SureDrop customers benefit from 100% control over their keys. All keys are securely stored client-side, neither the service provider nor Senetas have access. Finally, SureDrop comes with file fragmentation for additional security.
Once you’ve placed your files in the cloud they become exposed to an array of data security threats. Even if your file sharing app uses encryption, the keys may not be 100% secure. If the keys are not secure, neither are your files. For many security-conscious organisations, this is not acceptable.

SureDrop files are always stored in encrypted, compressed file segments. You also have the option of High Security Groups; these offer client side encryption where decryption keys are stored only on your device, so even if someone accessed your server, your files are safe.
SureDrop is broken down into a number of easy to manage components that can be installed on any arrangement of servers. We support scaling under load and remote updates are designed to make administration quick and easy. Once you install the SureDrop clients once, they never have to be manually updated again.
Non-destructive deletes are active by default. The file and all previous versions are available from the administrator’s console.
On high security groups, only you can see your files. Not your colleagues, not your system admin, not even us.
The changes made by the first person to reconnect are considered the current version. Changes made by other users will then be saved as additional versions in the same directory.
SureDrop customers are a diverse mix of financial institutions, government agencies, professional services organisations, telecommunications service providers and major commercial enterprises.
