You can’t run a business in 2023 without coming in contact with the internet. Your personally identifying information, your top secret work-related documents, and your privacy are all on the line as a citizen of the world on the internet today. It is crucial, then for those reasons and more to protect your data at every possible juncture.
Ease of Communication
Email as a file-sharing service is a thing of the past. Email attachments as we understand them have remained largely unchanged since their inception in 1992. It’s no exaggeration to say that our daily file-sharing needs have drastically outpaced the needs of a nineties-era email attachment. These days businesses are regularly exchanging files that well exceed the maximum file size of an email attachment. Video projects, lossless music files, and high-resolution photos are commonly exchanged in the workplace to create products and advertisements. We have reached an age where we should no longer be bottlenecked by email attachments.
A file-sharing service offers not only security but ease of communication. With unlimited file sizes, work is able to proceed unimpeded by file size bottlenecks or confusing multi-step sharing processes. Simply share a link, pull the desired file, and get back to work.
Many email services try their best to protect email attachments in transit, but this simply is not enough to protect important information. When emails arrive at their destination, they are subject to the security measures of the email server they are housed in, not the mention the security practices of the individual receiving the attachment in question.
A file-sharing service mitigates these dangers by creating secure ecosystems in which your documents are encrypted from end-to-end. Unlike email attachments, they are never left to sit on a third-party server, waiting to be pulled away by a hacker forcing their way into abandoned emails.
Every year, billions of dollars are lost to data breaches all over the world. This need not be the case when file security is one click away. Using a secure file-sharing service streamlines workflows while also protecting files from hackers that have hijacked wireless connections or forced open a server housing long dormant emails.
Keeping Up With Technology
Business online moves at a breakneck pace. File-sharing services work to keep your business up to speed by creating a home for your data that cannot be made obsolete by the march of time. Email attachments have fallen by the wayside because of the impossibly herculean task of overhauling the foundations of emails for billions of users at the same time without fundamentally breaking the service all over the world. A file-sharing service can update its server structure without harming your files and it can update its encryption protocols without disrupting the daily user experience.
This incredible flexibility means that businesses can be as agile as possible in the security arms race without disturbing the everyday operation of an already-established workflow. This also means that using a file-sharing service is the best way to future-proof a workplace both against hackers and in the service of cutting-edge security updates.
