Secure Document Exchange
Mini Case Study
Mini Case Study
This government authority oversees a specific industry sector, regulating its activities and providing governance and regulatory frameworks. In the course of its business, it regularly produces, uses, stores and shares sensitive materials with key stakeholders. Email and USB storage have been used as the primary means of file distribution; however, this is risky, with the major drawback being a lack of file protection and control.
It was important for this client to find an information sharing platform that was not only secure and audited, but also easy for customers to consume. Covata’s SafeShare fulfilled that need, allowing sharing and collaboration of documents at varying degrees of sensitivity, both internally as well as with external customers. For certain organisations, including this government department, a zero-footprint solution was important, as devices are running hardened and locked down standard operating environments.
SafeShare’s defense-grade encryption is allowing the free flow of data across parties, while ensuring that data is encrypted and protected at all times. Web-based encryption and decryption is seamless on any device, without the need for any application installation. Permissions are set at the collaborator level, allowing each file in the ecosystem to inherit dynamic access controls that correspond to individual users who are accessing the data. The organisation is maintaining full visibility into how the system is being used and can modify access controls to any data on the platform at any time.
