SendStuffNow Offers Encrypted Online File Sharing

PCWorld: SendStuffNow Offers Encrypted Online File Sharing

Files you upload to SendStuffNow are encrypted on the server and transferred encrypted to colleagues or customers you specify. The service also lets you see who has viewed files.

“Sharing files between employees and clients is a challenge for virtually every business, big or small. FTP is too Old World and technical, you get what you (don’t) pay for with most free services, and don’t even get me started on e-mail. Smith Micro Software–a company that boasts 20 years of experience in file compression and encryption–is entering the online file sharing foray with SendStuffNow, its Web-based “secure file delivery service.”

SendStuffNow has a simple goal of making the file sharing process both easy and secure, not to mention a value proposition to business and enterprise users. It’s bringing a unique approach to territory currently occupied by the likes of YouSendIt, Droplr, and Dropbox. You upload a file to SendStuffNow, then use its sharing tools to send links for those files to your recipients. All correspondence between you, your recipients, and SendStuffNow’s servers is SSL encrypted with an RSA 2048 bit key. Files on SendStuffNow’s servers are also encrypted with AES 256 bit keys, so you can go ahead and tell your boss that things are pretty much locked down.”
