What is SmartFile Business?

Answer, a branded business file management web interface that is built on secure FTP. SmartFile Business allows you to connect through any web browser (on any device) or through any FTP client to send, receive, store, and manage your files. File and folder permissions allow you to determine who has access to files and the degree of how they can interact with them. Every action is tracked and logged in our activity reports for HIPAA compliance and added security.

The most complex user and file permissions you will find anywhere. Assign users to subfolders without access to any parent folders through our user 'Home Directory'. Set custom access for folders, files, and users as you please. Assign users to groups for bulk permissions and less work. You determine who can view, upload, download, or delete files. True user and file access for more security. Other security features include:

256-bit AES encryption during transfer.

Constant virus and security scans.

custom branding

Use your logo, colors, and domain

We take branding to the next level. Once your site is branded, SmartFile becomes 100% transparent to your users and clients. Use your logo and icon so that your brand will display on both desktop and mobile browsers. Use a combination of your company colors to stylize your buttons and interface. And best of all, use your domain to login and direct clients to. SmartFile will feel like a true integration into your company's routine instead of a forgotten 3rd party service.

Customize with your brand and domain

Share your files and folders with more security. Not only share single files but also entire folder directories. You can add password protection, download limits, expiration dates to ensure proper access. Every link can also enable file upload for anonymous upload to folders.
