Synology Introduces C2 Transfer, Cloud Solution to Securely Transfer Files for Businesses and Teams
Synology announced the availability of C2 Transfer, a new cloud solution designed to securely transfer files between businesses and their clients, partners, and other external parties.
Synology’s on-premises storage solutions already help businesses and home users solve data management challenges like connecting remote teams and enabling file sharing and collaboration among people. C2 Transfer, on the other hand, is intended to address the last mile problem, which occurs when teams send important and potentially sensitive files to clients.
Identity verification and end-to-end encryption
Most file collaboration solutions, cloud or on-premises ones, protect data through permission management and audits of individual account activity. However, deliverables still have to be sent to external parties that do not have accounts.
C2 Transfer simplifies things for both parties while ensuring that files are always delivered to the correct person, even if a link is accidentally published or shared with the incorrect person. C2 Transfer authenticates users by sending a one-time password (OTP) to a sender-specified email address or phone number, ensuring that only the intended recipient has access to the files.
C2 Transfer keeps data private with end-to-end encryption, making files unreadable from before the client uploads them until after they are safely downloaded onto a device by the intended recipient.
Accelerate external workflows
C2 Transfer is intended to make it simple to send files to external partners and clients, particularly in the human resources, legal, manufacturing, finance, and marketing departments. To receive files securely, C2 Transfer includes built-in support for image watermarks, download expiration dates, single-use downloads, and file requests.
