5 Online Tools to Share Files and Collaborate Securely

5 Online Tools to Share Files and Collaborate Securely

You need several tools to make things easier for everyone while doing business. These are helpful especially to store data and share certain files with each other. However, not all tools are secured so you have to choose them carefully. Let’s take a look at some online file sharing tools below which provide you very good security.

1. Tresorit.com

Tresorit.com is the best tool for file sharing and very safe because it is end-to-end encrypted. It encrypts data on the user’s device, so only those know the data who share files with each other, and no one can see that data or hack it. It is ideal for small businesses and bigger companies, too.

This tool is device friendly because you can use it from any device and browser. The best feature is, it allows you to send files securely with a link, even from Outlook (thanks to their integration). You can also revoke if you sent it by mistake or you think that it isn’t appropriate from business point of view.

You can access, edit, and upload any files through tresorit.com and also create group folders to collaborate. The tool is extremely secure as it was checked on more than 1000 hackers who could not steal the data. The security is HIPAA compliant and the data is fully protected from surveillance.

2. Dropbox

This is another good sharing tool being used by thousands of people throughout the world. It’s also especially good for small to large business where several devices are used for file sharing. If you want any employee to get a file or folder, you just put it in dropbox and it will reach another person’s device. Dropbox has several features, including dropbox enterprise which is good for every business. You can explore this tool as much as you can so that you could understand it better. However, Dropbox is not end-to-end encrypted. To make it secure, you need more browser extension, plugins, or add-ons.

3. Google Docs

This is also highly used even more than Dropbox, as it’s also free and all you need is a Gmail account. Google Docs is best to share heavy documents, like books, Pdf files, etc. All you have to do is just allowing another person to view and download the files. Lots of businesses are using this tool and find it safe. The best quality of Google Docs is that if any changes are made in the content, every sharer would be able to see it. With Google Docs, you need to take care of privacy security, though.

4. Slack

It’s a unique tool and good for teams. It is, in fact, a communication tool like a chat room which is much secured, unlike Skype and hangouts that lack in security. All team members can get in touch and update each other about any task or about an event going on in the office. Slack is especially good for team members of two different offices who need to chat about work. Employees from the same office working in different places can also chat with each other through this tool.

5. Skype

Skype is widely used for business and for personal use. Skype is not only used for chatting, but also for file sharing. You can instantly share any files while chatting, so you don’t even need to email the file. If you use its features carefully, it would be very secure. The best of Skype is that you can video chat with distant friend, colleague, or client. These are less risks of scamming if you talk to a distant client through video chat. You can easily understand the body language of your conversation partner during video chat. People also can’t fool you about their location, because wherever you are talking from, it is shown on Skype.

These are actually not the only tools as there are several other file sharing tools. But, always remember to use those which are fully secure!
