Easily Share Files with 100% Privacy
The Challenge – When Convenience Can’t Outweigh Compliance
Protecting, accessing and sharing confidential files is a challenge for law firms of all sizes. Public cloud storage solutions offer convenience, but do not provide control over location and privacy of files to ensure attorney-client privilege is maintained.
Data loss or accidental exposure of confidential information can be tragic for a small practice. As Dropbox users found out earlier this year, the cloud is susceptible to data breaches, hacks, and invasions of privacy, when confidential files like tax returns, bank records, mortgage applications, and business plans were potentially exposed to unauthorized people.
For the legal industry in particular, the public cloud can be high risk / high reward and enough of an issue for various jurisdictions (affecting over half the nation’s lawyers) to prompt ethics rules on the use of the cloud for storing and handling client data. With these major pitfalls, legal professionals must rethink traditional public cloud services for a more secure, ethical way to balance industry compliance with the convenience of easily syncing and sharing data within their practice or with external clients.
Transporter offers all of the protection, access and sharing capabilities of the cloud without any of the risk. As a private device you own, it gives you complete control over location and redundancy of information while allowing you to privately share with anyone and access confidential files from anywhere in the world.
Protect Client Information
Automatically protect client files against a computer failure with a local device, or install a second Transporter offsite for additional protection. Files are always encrypted (AES-256) during transfer.
Reduce Costs, Eliminate Fees
Simple and intuitive setup is easily completed in minutes, and only pay a one-time cost that eliminates recurring monthly subscription fees. Each Transporter can store terabytes of information, up to 24TB per appliance with the Genesis products for business.
Privately Access Files
Automatically sync files and folders between every computer with private access to files from anywhere on mobile devices. Your files are always transferred directly between devices, never stored in the cloud.
The ability to control where your files are stored and who has access, or hosting private folders for sharing with clients and other attorneys guarantees attorney-client privilege.
The Full Cloud Experience on Private Hardware You Own and Control
As the private cloud solution to public cloud conundrum, Transporter offers all the protection, access, and sharing capabilities of the cloud without any of the risk. As a private device you own, it gives you complete control over location and redundancy of information while allowing you to privately share with anyone and access confidential files from anywhere in the world. It’s both simple and secure to share files and folders with other partners in the office with their own individual devices or sharing one centralized device, or providing read-only access to documents for individual clients they can quickly access through secure shared links that you control.
Delivering 100% Privacy for Legal Professionals
How are we able to deliver Transporter as a 100% private solution? Whereas public cloud storage services like Box and Dropbox are designed to store everything on their infrastructure and transfer all of your data through their servers, Nexsan’s central service is used to establish secure, encrypted connections between authorized Transporters in a similar fashion to how Skype works. Once an authorized connection is established, the data and metadata are encrypted at the source using military-grade AES-256 encryption and then transferred directly from Transporter to Transporter. Your data is never stored in the cloud and private encryption keys are generated and maintained directly on the devices ensuring that no one – not even Nexsan – has access to or visibility into your data.
