Introduction

What is Secure Large File Transfer?

Data Protection Secure Large-File Transfer Service (SLFT) is your hassle-free way to easily and securely transfer large files to other users. There is no software needed on your end, other than your web browser and email client. Everything else is managed by the SLFT server.

Sending Files

Sending files to internal or external users is a breeze. You simply login to your SLFT account; upload the file, using the HTTPS protocol, and SLFT automatically emails a notification message to the recipient, once the file is ready for downloading. Your transmission is locked and protected. The data is securely encrypted using a passphrase that you provide

Receiving Files

Receiving a file is just as easy. The recipient gets the email notification from SLFT, explaining that a file is waiting and ready to be downloaded. The notification includes instructions for downloading the file. The recipient logs onto the SLFT server, as directed by the notification, and downloads the file

Once the file has been downloaded by the recipient, the SLFT server updates the status of the message to confirm that the file was successfully downloaded. The encrypted file will be stored for a specified period of time, configurable by SLFT retention policy (current default is 17 business days).

SLFT Features

Encrypt large files. Seamless uploads and notifications to recipients. Customers can download files using their web browser in multiple Operating

Systems. No software required to decrypt data at the recipient's computer. Secure web transmission with SSL for upload and download. Data at rest is encrypted and can be set with an expiration date for added

protection.

Note: SFLT should not be used for backup or storage purposes. Remember to always keep your original file in a safe place. Failure to do so could result in data loss.
