Secure File Transfer
SecureDock’s unique file transfer process leverages Secure “link” Transmission and AES document encryption. Our process removes the typical exposure that occurs when documents are distributed via standard email. Using point-to-point encryption, documents remain encrypted at rest, pending distribution, and through distribution.
SecureDock utilizes a series of email authentication/validation methods designed to ensure the successful delivery of email notifications sent via the SecureDock web application, as well as preventing unauthorized sending of emails from illegitimate parties.
Authentication Methods Include:
- SPF – (Sender Policy Framework)
- DKIM – (DomainKeys Identified Mail)
- DMARC – (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance)
Server Specific Anti-Virus Protection
SecureDock leverages advanced anti-malware, anti-ransomware, and HIPS (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System) providing easy, centralized management of the security of all virtual servers on the cloud.
Security Standards and Compliance
All information entered into the application is encrypted to the highest level available – 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The information is encrypted at upload, stays encrypted as long as it is stored on the application, and is only decrypted at download. At SecureDock, your information is encrypted at rest, pending distribution, and while in transit.
Usernames and Strong Passwords
Both are required to access the SecureDock Web-Application. Each individual user has sole possession of their own password which can be updated, if desired, from within the users account settings.
reCAPTCHA – Stopping Unauthorized Entry
In addition to unique username and strong password requirements, users will be required to complete a reCAPTCHA checkbox when logging into the SecureDock Web-Application. CAPTCHA (Complete Automated Public Turing Test) designed to establish that a computer user is human. A human must view and click on the reCAPTCHA checkbox, or, if asked, complete a CAPTCHA image quiz to verify that they are human. This will prohibit any computer/bot generated entry.
