TEST Secure File Transfer

Send and receive large files quickly and securely.


Secure File Transfer allows you to send and receive large files quickly and securely. You can create a unique, temporary link for each file you want to send, and then share the link via email.

Secure File Transfer can also be used to create a "drop" for other people to securely upload a file that only you can retrieve.

Secure File Transfer is not a file storage system. Files are removed from the system when the link expires. Other file storage options
