SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--VeriFyle, a leading provider of secure messaging and file sharing, today extended their Security for Students offering, making the company’s secure cloud communication system available to students, staff and faculty of UC San Francisco at no charge. This program is in response to steps UC leadership has taken to monitor student and faculty web and email activity.
“With their focus on medicine, we felt it was appropriate to add UCSF to the Security for Students program so that they could better protect their own information as well as the information of their patients,“ said Jack Smith, CEO of VeriFyle. “We know how important it is to keep personal health information private and secure, and our platform helps users in their efforts to be compliant with regulations like HIPAA.”
Students and faculty can sign up for their free accounts at www.verifyle.com/UCSF using their ucsf.edu email addresses.
Unlike many other cloud-storage and cloud-sharing services, which use a single master key for encrypting and decrypting their users’ data, VeriFyle’s Cellucrypt 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 option to disable password reset, 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 and control of information to its users. VeriFyle’s industry-leading, patented encryption technology gives users the highest level of security, protecting them from bulk-access vulnerability through the unique encryption of each individual document and conversation.
