What type of security does Hightail offer?
Hightail has controls in place to ensure files are encrypted and secure.
While the Internet poses new challenges in information security, many of them can be addressed by the traditional arsenal of security mechanisms and we offer network encryption to protect the confidentiality of sensitive data in transmission
With Hightail, all data in transit is encrypted using strong SSL/TLS encryption up to 256-bit and supporting forward secrecy. File names are dynamically scrambled. Data is encrypted in motion and at rest. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser; or a mail server and a mail client (e.g. Outlook).
At Hightail we use AES-256 bit encryption using dynamically managed keys with real-time revocation and full auditing on the back end.
