Frequently Asked Questions

What is secure file transfer?

Secure file transfer is the practice of file sharing over the cloud (internet) using some sort of secure file transfer protocol (HTTPS or SFTP), encryption, password protection, or authentication key (or a combination of all four) to protect data in transit and prevent unwanted access to said data. Secure file transfer protocol aims to safeguard the privacy and reliability of transferred files (especially sensitive data), making it a fundamental practice in industries where data security is paramount.

What is the most secure file transfer?

MASV is considered one of the most secure file transfer methods in the market today.

  • It’s built on AWS, which takes advantage of Amazon’s incredibly secure cloud infrastructure.
  • It’s compliant with ISO 27001 and SOC 2 assessments, as well as industry-specific requirements such as Trusted Partner Network for media and HIPAA for healthcare.
  • It encrypts data in-flight and at-rest with TLS 1.2 and AES-256 file transfer encryption.
  • It supports multi-factor authentication (MFA) and SAML-based authentication.
  • Unlike other large file transfer platforms, MASV provides access control options such as file expiry and download limits to prevent abuse and unauthorized access.
  • And lastly, it’s entirely cloud-based and user-friendly to prevent human error and avoid ransomware attacks on self-hosted internal systems.

How do I transfer files for free securely?

One of the key features of MASV’s managed file transfer service is enterprise-grade security for all its users on a free platform. Benefit from file encryption, password-protection, custom file expiry and download limits, multi-factor authentication, and more when you sign-up for a free account.

Need somewhere to store your files? MASV offers flexible and secure pay-as-you-go cloud storage for your large files. All files uploaded to MASV are automatically stored for 7 days. After 7 days of free storage, you can decide how long you want to store files in the cloud with MASV.

MASV also integrates with most cloud storage providers such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3 and more.

How do I password-protect file transfers?

When uploading a file through the main MASV dashboard, click the ‘Package Options’ dropdown and scroll to the bottom. From here, you can enter a custom download password to protect your file. Additionally, when creating a MASV Portal, you have the option to enter an upload and download password for double the protection.

What type of encryption is best used for large file transfers?

When sharing large files securely over the internet, TLS encryption provides top-of-the-line encryption and gives you the added flexibility to use a web browser, as opposed to an FTP client.

MASV’s cloud file transfer solution is specifically designed to transfer large files over a browser with TLS 1.2 and AES-256 encryption, the cornerstones of safe and reliable internet delivery.

And there’s no need to worry about your file size. MASV offers data transfers of up to 15 TB.

What is the safest way to send large files?

The safest way to send sensitive files is to use MASV, an ISO 27001 and TPN-verified secure file transfer solution that can send up to 15 TB of data over the internet with TLS 1.2 encryption in-flight and AES-256 at-rest, password-protection, AWS safeguards and file delivery tracking.

How do I securely share and send large files?

Sign up for MASV, drag-and-drop your large files onto the upload window, add a custom download password, and hit send. By default, all MASV transfers are encrypted in-flight and at-rest with AWS safeguards in place — and they come with ISO 27001 certification and a content protection verification by the Trusted Partner Network. It’s one of the most secure file transfer methods available today.

What is the Trusted Partner Network (TPN)?

As a secure file transfer solution, MASV is part of The Trusted Partner Network (TPN) vendor portal, a global, industry-wide film and television content protection initiative.

The TPN helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows before their intended release.

What is ISO 27001 certification?

ISO 27001 is a widely recognized information security standard, based on customer excellence, digital security, and business processes—ensuring organizations deliver services in a secure and professional manner.

To receive this certification, a company’s entire infrastructure needs to be evaluated and validated by a rigorous third-party security audit.
