Security

When comparing virtual data room providers, make sure you look for these top-of-the-line security features — all of which come standard with every Citrix ShareFile VDR plan:

SSAE 16 and ISO 27001 Certified Datacenters
All data saved to Citrix ShareFile VDR are stored in world-class datacenters operated by Amazon Web Services. All datacenters have attached SSAE 16 and ISO 27001 certifications, demonstrating our commitment to security and reliability.

"View Only" Permissions
To ensure complete control of your data, you can grant “view only” access with dynamic watermarking. ShareFile VDR’s proprietary viewer allows you to grant print access to your documents with robust user tracking.

Security Watermarks
For users with "view only" permissions, you can specify a dynamic watermark that can include their email address, name, IP address and any custom information. This watermark will overlay all the documents they view, discouraging unauthorized distribution.

File Encryption
When your files are transferred across the Internet, they are encrypted using 256-bit SSL encryption. This is the same type of encryption used by online banking and e-commerce sites to ensure secure data transfer. Additionally, unlike many other electronic data rooms, we store your data with encryption while it is at rest on our servers.

Audit Logs
All activity on your account is saved to an audit log. The audit log records user activities including day, time, IP address, location and more.

Granular User Access
You can set user and group access on a folder-by-folder level, ensuring that users only view the specific files that you select.

Daily Third-Party Security Audit
Our servers are continually tested by a third party and are certified as Hacker Safe.

Non Disclosure Agreement
While our company policies protect the confidentiality of your data, ShareFile maintains a standardized NDA that can be signed upon request to provide further assurance of our commitment to keeping your data safe.

Virus Scanning
All files you upload are scanned for viruses for the security of data room participants.

Data Backup
Uploaded data is backed up to a disaster recovery datacenter in addition to the primary storage location.
