Send Big Files & Communicate Securely for Free!

23 12 2009

Ever since the launch of Scribbos at our annual conference, Innovation in Amsterdam, the team has been hard at work working with our customers and their business partners.  So what have we been up to?  We launched a successful campaign to support the Susan G. Komen foundation, we’ve delivered 3 new versions of the SaaS platform with new features, we’ve been talking to media about security needs in healthcare, finalized several key partnerships and our MFT platform Infitran was recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant as a Visionary for Managed File Transfer.  More or less, we’ve just been having a fun time since the launch of Scribbos.

We’ve definitely been busy and the community of users grows bigger every day.    Even though we’ve had this much excitement, we continue to look at ways to improve the service and every month we are bringing new capabilities and customer driven enhancements to the platform.  When working with our customers, we have identified a need for our customers who only send a few messages and files a month to better support our current user community.  To that end, a new slimmed down free version has been launched to accommodate users who need to send large files quickly and communicate with all of our customers easily.

This new offering isn’t just to benefit our existing users.   This new option is available for anyone, including users who aren’t using Scribbos with our customers and provides access to our secure communications offering to a whole new community of users who may not be using secure solutions for large files and messages.   After working with our customers who were previously using other free services for sending files, it became apparent that other services don’t encrypt your data at rest or provide the tracking capabilities to ensure your file was received by the intended recipients which is an issue for everyone who sends confidential information.

When Would You Need to Use a Secure Messaging Service?

The simple answer is anytime you need to keep the information you are sending confidential and when you need to ensure they received the message or file.  Many users of Scribbos today leverage the platform for sending big files which can’t be sent through email or they need to move sensitive information for their business such as healthcare plan enrollments for new employees, tax information to your CPA or other regulated information such as that covered by HIPAA or PCI information.

Scribbos for Free provides the same level of security and auditing as our other plans with some usage limits.  Scribbos leverages SSL encryption of the session and encrypts all your data at rest within our secure cloud platform which is not the case from many providers who you may send files with today for free.   If you need to send files bigger than 200MB or need more than 25 messages a month, Scribbos provides other upgraded options for your use which include the following capabilities:

  • Company and Detailed Usage Reporting for all your users
  • The ability to send files up to 2GB through your browser
  • Managed users and recipients
  • Group Management and Reporting for Internal Departments chargebacks
  • Ability to export all the auditing and reporting information for internal analysis and long term retention
  • Block Domains to ensure no information is sent to unauthorized users/receivers
  • Customize your Messages and Notifications for your Company’s needs
  • Custom message signatures
  • Detailed message tracking
