At LegalProse, we use a software program called Tresorit to exchange and store information. This program allows us to work remotely but still have access to all the file information that we need. It also enables us to email secure links back and forth.
Tresorit is a zero-knowledge system, which means that the information is encrypted before it is sent and can only be opened by those who get shared access. Additionally, all the information is stored in the European Union and is protected by Swiss privacy laws.
Tresorit is so confident in their security that they have offered a $50,000 prize to anyone who can hack their system. Over 1000 people have tried over 468 days but no one has succeeded.
How does it work?
At our initial LegalProse meeting or telephone call, we set you up with your own Tresorit account and folder for document transmission. When you need something done, simply put the files and instructions in the secure data transfer box and we will complete the request and leave your completed work in the folder, as well as send you an email to let you know it's been completed.
Sound too complicated? We can also send a secure encrypted link and you can access your completed work directly in your inbox.
Is it expensive?
Tresorit costs $12.50/month per user. This plan includes 100 GB of storage. We set up the account for you and you'll see that cost in your monthly bill from us. If you don't use our service for a month, then we cancel your account and there is no charge.
Any questions? Email me and I'd be happy to clarify!
