Why do security-conscious businesses consider TransferChain Send over WeTransfer?
In a typical day scenario, you have a file that you need to send. Naturally, email is an accustomed choice, however, it's sensitive or it's a large file and you are aware that nothing sent by email is completely secure. So what other options do you have?
Let’s compare TransferChain Send to WeTransfer:
➖️ Does not have end-to-end encryption. As a result, rogue staff, authorities, or hackers (in the event of a data breach) can access your files.
➖️ Utilizes server-side encryption, meaning has the keys to unlock your files.
➖️ Stores your files in a centralized server, leaving your precious data at risk for single-point of failures.
➖️ Your data is sent to tracking companies by WeTransfer. They connect to websites such as googletagmanager.com, amazon-adsystem.com, facebook.net, and others.
➖ Due to server-side keys WeTransfer is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks and network sniffers
➖ Only has additional password protection for paid plans
