Enterprise-Grade Security Features

In addition to attaching files of any size, users also get enterprise-grade security features like setting an expiration date, requesting recipient login and the ability to attach encrypted messages with files.

Setting Expiration Date – When a user sends files with Thru, the recipients access files via a secure link in their mailbox. All download links sent by Thru automatically receive an expiration date that prevents recipients from downloading files after a certain date. Before a user sends files, they can easily choose this expiration date from a drop down menu.

Requesting Login – To prevent files from being accessed by unauthorized users, Thru users can choose to Request Login before sending files that makes download links inaccessible without a registered email and password. Recipients (customers/partners) who do not have a Thru account are still able to be registered by following registration steps.

Private Messaging – By selecting Private Message, users can attach an encrypted message that is only accessible to the recipients. This feature is ideal for securely transferring confidential information like SSNs (Social security numbers), Passwords, Credit Card Numbers, etc.
