    Proofpoint Secure Share is moving to end of life (EOL), leaving many security leaders looking for other options. Thankfully, there's another secure file transfer platform in the game that delivers industry-leading ease of use and versatility: Virtru Secure Share

    If you're looking for a Proofpoint Secure Share alternative, there are several reasons to choose Virtru Secure Share as your next encrypted file transfer solution. Virtru makes it easy for teams and external partners to share information securely, while giving your admins visibility and control over unstructured data that enters and leaves your organization.

    Virtru Secure Share Is Affordable and Easy to Use

    If you're looking for a secure file transfer service to replace Proofpoint Secure Share, you've probably encountered a variety of clunky, legacy SFTP platforms that don't deliver on a seamless user experience. You'll also find that many of these products boast a high price tag for this subpar experience. 

    But Virtru Secure Share is incredibly simple for everyone to use, and it's also affordable. Here's how it works: Just upload your files, select your security preferences, and share. 

    Secure Share - UI

    Access Virtru Secure Share in Any Browser

    Whether you're sending or receiving files, you can access Secure Share easily in any browser. Many organizations will post their Secure Share link on their website, or add the link to email signatures, to allow customers or patients to securely submit forms, paperwork, or applications. 

    Upload, Protect, and Share Files Up to 15 GB 

    With Virtru Secure Share, data owners retain complete control of their information — even after it's been shared. Granular access controls can be changed or revoked at any time. 

    Enable Secure Collaboration with External Partners and Customers

    Sensitive data can't just stay inside your organization forever: Your teams need the ability to share information externally when they need to. Give them a secure, simple way to do this while giving admins total visibility into, and control over, external data sharing. 

    Support Compliance with Strict Regulations with FIPS-Validated, FedRAMP-Authorized Security

    From CMMC and ITAR to HIPAA and GLBA, Virtru Secure Share supports compliance with a wide variety of regulations. Virtru's military-grade encryption and access control are powered by the open-standard Trusted Data Format, which enables Zero Trust strategy for public- and private-sector organizations globally. Virtru's Data Security Platform is FedRAMP-Authorized and FIPS-Validated for heightened security. 

    Virtru Secure Share Integrates with Confluence and Zendesk

    Virtru Secure Share is designed to fit easily into your teams' existing workflows, which is why we launched direct integrations with Zendesk and Confluence. 

    Organizations using Virtru Secure Share for Zendesk, such as Team Rehab, a physical therapy network, use Virtru Secure Share to protect the patient files they need to share externally with legal or insurance partners, or patients themselves. This helps support compliance with regulations like HIPAA, while also giving patients an easy way to access their health information securely.

    Available in the Atlassian Marketplace, Virtru Secure Share for Confluence provides inline encryption on Confluence pages where engineers, developers, and other teams work every day. They use it to protect things like API tokens, credentials, and other sensitive information without making it visible to all users of that space. 

    Use Secure Share On Its Own, or With Complementary Data-Centric Security Options

    If you used Proofpoint Secure Share, you likely also had to use Proofpoint's email security and DLP along with it. But you can use Virtru Secure Share on its own, if you choose.

    However, there are many benefits to using Virtru's data protection across your tech ecosystem:

    • Ensure Data Sovereignty and Compliance with the Virtru Private Keystore. Host your own private encryption keys in the location of your choosing: In a public or private cloud, or on prem. The Virtru Private Keystore can be used in conjunction with Virtru Secure Share, as well as with Virtru's other email and file encryption products. Virtru is also an authorized key manager for Google Client-Side Encryption for Gmail and Workspace. 
    • Deploy Fast, Easy Email Encryption for Gmail and Outlook: Email is the most common collaboration workflow, and it's the most common data loss vector. Bring easy-to-use, client-side encryption to your email interface to allow your teams to securely share sensitive data externally, while enforcing granular policy and access control. 
    • Automate Data Protection with the Virtru Gateway: Despite their best efforts, people make mistakes. Automate server-side encryption and DLP with the Virtru Data Protection Gateway, which can protect a wide variety of email workflows, and even decrypt data for things like audit logs and compliance requirements. The Gateway can also automate encryption for email flows via SaaS apps like Salesforce, Looker, Front, and ServiceNow.
