Secure DropBox Alternative To Transfer Large Files Of Any Size

Share More, Share Faster, Share Securely

DropBox alternative to share files using any platform

If you are looking for a DropBox alternative that hasn't suffered from a range of privacy and security issues, you've come to the right place. Granted, DropBox is a huge name in the industry, and it has been around for a long time, so it is an established brand.

They, just like us, offer a number of pricing plans, free trials, and a premium plan. However, since its inception it has gradually branched into collaborative capabilities, whereas we haven't.

This lack of focus on secure file sharing does mean that worryingly, DropBox has faced a number of issues over the years.

Why We Are A Better DropBox Alternative

DropBox has dropped the ball many times when it comes to security

Your Data Is Safe With Us

DropBox has had severe issues with security and breaches. These breaches include allowing anyone with a DropBox account to access any account with just an email address. Emails and passwords of 68 million users was also revealed in another breach. Filemail has had no security breaches, and our Enterprise clients can have access to our penetration test results.

Dropbox staff can access your data

We Don't Access Your Data

DropBox staff have access to encryption keys so they can decrypt data that is transferred via DropBox. Under certain conditions, DropBox reserves the right to access and share your information with third parties, beyond the legal accepted legal process. At Filemail, we reserve no such rights. We don't access your files.

Filemail uses anti-virus protection for your peace of mind

Anti-Virus Protection

With countless reports of malware infesting devices world-wide, and the many other tactics used by the scrupulous kind, having no anti-virus protection for any account type is a risk not worth taking. At Filemail, anti-virus protection is one of our ever-present security features.

Focused On Transferring Files

DropBox provides a number of features that have nothing to do with transferring files. The aforementioned collaborative capabilities have made sending a file, an unnecessarily complicated process. We are purely focused on providing a stellar cloud based file transferring experience.

I love FileMail and use it for my digital forensic investigation business all the time. I can have customers send me files, and then I can return completed reports to them. I love the fact that it notifies when they download my report. It allows me to record case activity. It is awesome!
