SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VeriFyle, a leading provider of secure messaging and document sharing, today announced that they will begin assigning each new user a unique, high-entropy password, created using state-of-the-art random number generation techniques, instead of asking users to create their own.
VeriFyle never emails or stores passwords, and will leave it up to the user to store their assigned password or to choose a new one. This new feature will allow new users to access the content being shared with them with just a single click, and it reduces the likelihood that users will choose weak passwords for their VeriFyle accounts, protecting not only the user for whom the password was generated, but also the person sharing something with that user.
“We know that passwords are the weakest point in any system, and that coming up with a strong and unique password can be a challenge especially when you’re simply trying to see documents someone is sharing with you,“ said Jack Smith, CEO of VeriFyle. “By giving strong passwords to our users as a part of the account creation process, we can ensure that they can easily get in and see their content without compromising their security.”
Unlike many other cloud-storage and cloud-sharing services, which use a single master key for encrypting and decrypting their users’ data, VeriFyle’s CellucryptTM technology uses password-derived keys on top of a public-key system to individually encrypt data objects, adding several additional layers of protection for their users. With the additional options to disable password reset and utilize a second factor for authentication, VeriFyle becomes the most secure cloud-sharing platform available, while remaining extremely simple to use.
VeriFyle delivers ultra-secure messaging and document sharing, all from a simple, single-screen interface. VeriFyle was built from the ground up to be the most secure cloud-sharing solution available, and to deliver improved productivity to its users. VeriFyle’s industry-leading, patented encryption technology, CellucryptTM, gives users the highest level of security, protecting them from bulk-access vulnerability through the unique encryption of each individual document and conversation.
