Is WeTransfer safe for secure file storage?

If you’re trying to research the safeness of WeTransfer for your file sharing or storage needs, you’ve come to the right place.

You want the best for your confidential information, and whether you’re concerned about how it’s getting where it’s going, who can see it, or what can happen once it gets there, WeTransfer may not protect those aspects, which is where Vault Rooms may be a better choice for you.

WeTransfer allows you to easily package and send a digital file, which is great, unless that file has confidential information or something you don’t want shared beyond the initial transfer. WeTransfer is focused on easy file sharing more so than security.

Vault Rooms flips that script. We put security first and foremost, while still ensuring a robust file sharing and collaboration experience. Large corporations, small companies, and individuals alike trust Vault Rooms to keep an eye on their most precious information.

So whether you’re considering WeTransfer, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box, realize that all four have their own benefits, but when it comes to security, Vault Rooms will work our hardest to ensure you’re pleased with the results.

Comparing WeTransfer to a Digital Vault at Vault Rooms

WeTransfer’s process can open documents up to criminals and hackers through the following possibilities:

-A hacker could break into your email account or the account of the person you’re sending your file to. By clicking the link you’re sending, they now have access to the document.
-A bad actor who receives your document after clicking on the link may promise to delete what you send, but instead has the full ability to further disseminate the files.
-If someone you trust misplaces the file after reviewing it, a hacker can find the file on their system, and later exploit it.

Vault Rooms works differently:

-When you share a file through Vault Rooms, the document will stay on your account, and can only be downloaded with your express permission. Even better, with digital rights management (DRM), you can disable copy and pasting on your document.
-Vault Rooms can add extra layers of security to ensure the person logging in to view is actually your acquaintance. By activating two-factor authentication, they’ll be able to confirm their identity before viewing. Even if their email has been hacked unknown to them, the hacker will not be able to access the document just by clicking on a link.
-Vault Rooms maintains control over the document, so that your collaborator won’t expose it to hackers in their own file library.

In addition to these improvements over a system like WeTransfer, Vault Rooms provides 24/7 support on every day of the year, which means if you ever lose a file, worry about security, or need to set up your system, we can make it happen.
