State and local governments receive and circulate sensitive citizen data by the masses–and with it comes a monumental responsibility to keep it safe. Some governing bodies mitigate risk by opting for paper file sharing, while others employ rigid digital security measures that slow down decision making or mission-critical work. Virtru Secure Share is an encrypted file-sharing platform that allows you to share and collect the files you need, without friction. It’s easy for civilians to use, and allows your team to focus on the work that matters most.
What Our Clients Use Secure Share For
Protecting Legal Documents
Secure Share allows citizens and employees to submit and encrypt affidavits, complaints, claims, and more through a shareable link. Law enforcement, fire departments, attorney offices, independent agencies, and more remain in compliance with CJIS-protected data secure with Secure Share’s end-to-end encryption.
Meeting Compliance with HIPAA, FERPA, CJIS, and More
State and local governments are beholden to a slew of compliance requirements–and Secure Share helps our clients meet multiple. It helps our clients maintain full view over files they receive, manage, or audit through granular access controls. At any point in time, data owners can grant or revoke access to a file, set expiration dates, or track who has accessed it using the Control Center.
Streamlining Community Intake
Some customers display their Secure Share link on their public website for registrations or applications to eliminate unsafe email strings or in-person file submissions. Certain agencies or departments can securely display their link online for encrypted file intake.
Inbound and Outbound File Sharing: Key Features
One-Click File Sharing
Designated individuals can share and receive secure files through a personalized link. By clicking on this link, citizen or government collaborators can submit files of any size, that are then encrypted end-to-end upon upload, transit, and at the destination.
Seamless Adoption for All Collaborators
Secure Share runs out of your browser, so there’s no need to download any software. All your collaborators (citizens or independent agencies) need is your personal link to share files with or access files from you. A streamlined user interface makes it intuitive for anyone to dive in and start sharing.
Access Controls for All
Data owners can grant and revoke access to their sensitive data at any time and manage it with easy-to-apply expiration dates or watermarks on files. Using the Virtru Control Center, administrators can track who has accessed protected data, when, where, and for how long–and can revoke access at any point.
How We Do It
Secure Share is part of Virtru’s Trusted Data Platform, a holistic suite of data protection products and solutions. Like Virtru’s other encryption offerings, Secure Share is built on the powerful Trusted Data Format (TDF), which protects data on the object level throughout its entire lifecycle.
By protecting each file itself with encryption, we allow the data owner complete control and oversight of their data at a granular level. Virtru protects citizen data everywhere it flows through your organization: through email, enterprise applications, file sharing solutions, and collaboration tools.
