FileSender: Audience

Any organization that has a need for exchanging (large) files in a secure, privacy assured and direct way can rely on FileSender. In particular, nonprofit organizations in the public sector can benefit, as there is a strong need for data and privacy security that is auditable. Now they can safely rely on FileSender.

Share privacy sensitive data sets

Ideally suited for nonprofit organizations

Currently, National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) from all over the world use FileSender to exchange large files such as data sets and other research data. Healthcare facilities can use the application to exchange diagnostic imagery such as cardiograms or MRI images. Government agencies that need to exchange (privacy) sensitive data sets for example can use FileSender and rest assured the data will never fall into the wrong hands.

We promise data that users exchange is never stored longer than indicated. We do need users to login, however, because the application needs to be able to identify and verify senders and receivers to control access.
