Secure File Sharing

Definition - What does Secure File Sharing mean?

Secure file sharing is the process of sharing one or more files securely or privately.

It enables sharing files between different users/organizations confidentially and/or within a protected mode, secure from intruders or unauthorized users.

Secure file sharing is also known as protected file sharing.

Techopedia explains Secure File Sharing

Secure file sharing is generally performed by encrypting the file, either before sharing or when being transmitted over the network. This is done through an encryption algorithm. The file can be shared within a local network or over a standard Internet connection. Secure file sharing can also be done through a private network connection such as a VPN.

Most file-sharing services or software enable secure file sharing by restricting access to the file, such as only granting authorized personnel rights to access, view and download the file.
