Customer Data Separation

Files.com is a multi-tenant Software as a Service (SaaS) and logically separates all customer data.

Customer Data Classification / Data Handling

Files.com is not in a position to know what data you are storing in the platform. This understanding and proper data classification/data handling is the responsibility of the customer. Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

Customer Data Storage

We store all the actual contents of customer files in the Amazon S3 Simple Storage Service. Amazon S3 provides a highly durable storage infrastructure designed for mission-critical and primary data storage.

Objects are redundantly stored on multiple devices across multiple facilities in an Amazon S3 Region. Once stored, Amazon S3 maintains the durability of your objects by quickly detecting and repairing any lost redundancy.

Amazon S3 also regularly verifies the integrity of data stored using checksums. If corruption is detected, it is repaired using redundant data.

We save backups of files that are deleted and retain such backups for a period of time that is customizable by you. Our support staff is able to restore deleted files directly back to your account.

Files.com allows customers to choose where their data is stored. Files.com has customers worldwide, and multiple geographic locations are available to support each customer. You can even use several data storage locations within the same account on certain plans. Files.com does not support utilizing physical media for bulk uploads.

For speed acceleration purposes, data will typically pass through the region closest to a user before being ultimately stored in the region that was selected for storage. For example if a user from Australia is uploading a file to a folder with a storage location of Germany, that data may be sent to our server location in Sydney (in transit) and then sent to our server location in Germany. You can disable this acceleration and ensure that the data is only ever sent to Germany (or whatever storage region you choose) by disabling our Global Acceleration feature.

Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

Customer Data Backups

We use Amazon Aurora for primary storage of customer metadata. Within Amazon Aurora, we operate multiple hot-backup servers across multiple availability zones.

We have Point-in-time Restore capabilities such that we are able to restore our database to its state at any given time in the past 7 days (such as immediately before a service disruption).

Additionally, we take full database snapshots and store them in Amazon S3 every 24 hours. These snapshots are retained for at least 7 days. Backups are audited as part of the Backup and Restoration Test Procedure

We do not make backups of customer files other than the internal redundancy provided by Amazon S3. Objects are redundantly stored on multiple devices across multiple facilities in an Amazon S3 Region. Once stored, Amazon S3 maintains the durability of your objects by quickly detecting and repairing any lost redundancy.

Amazon S3 also regularly verifies the integrity of data stored using checksums. If corruption is detected, it is repaired using redundant data.

Learn more on the AWS Compliance programs website.

Backup Policy and procedures are reviewed as part of the SOC 2 Audit process. Files.com InfoSec Program documentation includes proprietary information and is not provided to customers. Please reference our latest SOC 2 report for more details.

Customer Data Retention After Cancellation

Files.com does not retain customer data once a customer cancels their account. Customer data is deleted within 7 days of receipt of customer cancellation notice or termination due to nonpayment.

Customer Data Retention After Deletion By Customer

Files.com provides world class tools that allow customers to manage their accounts according to their own policy.

Backup retention periods for deleted customer data be configured to any setting the customer chooses to align with their internal security policies. Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

Customer Data Privacy

We use device identifiers (like cookies, beacons, Ad IDs, and IP addresses) to understand how people use the Files.com website and applications. We collect this information for any website visitor. We don't "sell" this information for money, but we do provide it to other companies such as Google and Facebook to help us market our services.

These device identifiers aren't what you might traditionally think of as personal information, like your name or phone number, and they don't directly identify you. Under the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA"), this type of sharing may be considered "selling" of personal information.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Files.com does not sell customer data or access or use customer data for any purpose other than providing the Files.com service to the customer. Files.com does not market directly to customers of our customers.

Files.com maintains a Privacy Policy. The Files.com Privacy Officer is our Chief Legal Counsel, Joseph Buszka. For any privacy-related inquiries, complaints, or questions, you can contact privacy@files.com.

Customer Data Logical Access Controls

Files.com provides world class tools that allow the customer to manage their logical access according to their own policy.

Customers can choose to use local application user/group accounts supporting Role Based Access Control (RBAC) including multiple 2FA options, or provision, authenticate, and authorize users via LDAP, Active Directory, Azure, ADFS, Okta, OneLogin, Auth0, and many other identity providers.

Files.com platform access is managed by customers. Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

Content Scanning or DLP of Customer Data

Files.com is not in a position to know what data you are storing in the platform and does not read the contents of customer data for the purpose of detecting private information, copywritten information, PII, PHI, etc.

Files.com eventually plans to allow customers to integrate their own DLP services into the Files.com system for content classification. If this capability would be of interest to you, please let us know.

Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

Customer User Passwords and Security Capabilities

Files.com provides world class tools that allow the customer to manage their logical access according to their own policy. Files.com platform access is managed by customers.

Customers can choose to use local application user/group accounts supporting Role Based Access Control (RBAC) including multiple 2FA options, or provision, authenticate, and authorize users via LDAP, Active Directory, Azure, ADFS, Okta, OneLogin, Auth0, and many other identity providers.

Passwords are stored in a salted encrypted format based on PKCS5 and PBKDF2 with SHA-512 (part of the SHA-2 family) used internally as the underlying hash algorithm. Customers may neither see nor export user passwords, in either hashed or unhashed format.

Passwords may be imported into Files.com as a hash in raw MD5, SHA-1, or SHA-2 formats, and if they are imported, they will be converted to Files.com's internal format upon first use.

Customers can set length requirements, complexity requirements, and change timeframe on user account passwords according to their own password policy. Files.com has provided a password strength meter aligned with the NIST SP800-63B standard for reference as passwords are created.

Customers can require users to change their password on their next login.

Customers can restrict access to certain IPs or IP ranges, or certain countries, either on a per-user or site-wide basis.

Customers can require that inactive user accounts be disabled after any length of time or lock after a certain number of failed password attempts.

API access requires the use of keys.

Please reference the Files.com documentation for more detailed information.

End user security configuration is the responsibility of the customer. Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

Customer User Login / Provisioning / Customer use of Single Sign On

Files.com supports, but does not require, SAML, LDAP, and OAuth technologies for customers to implement Single Sign On and automatic user provisioning.

Browser Requirements

Files.com supports all modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.) that were released within the last 4 years. As with nearly all websites today, support for Javascript and Cookies are required.

We no longer support the use of Internet Explorer as it is no longer supported by Microsoft.

No browser plugins, such as Java or Silverlight are required. Certain browser extensions, such as Zscaler, interfere with Files.com and may need to be disabled.

Customer Data Encryption

Files.com provides for data encrypted in motion and at rest.

We support 2048-bit SSL encryption for all inbound and outbound FTP and HTTP connections as well as modern SSH encryption for inbound and outbound SFTP connections.

Files.com uses SSL for encrypted data in transit which also includes support for TLS. TLS is an improved version of SSL, it works in much the same way as the SSL, using encryption to protect the transfer of data and information. The two terms are often used interchangeably in the industry.

For HTTP (web workspace) connections, SSL encryption (https://) is required for all connections. If a user attempts to connect to the web workspace via unsecured HTTP (http://), we will automatically redirect them to the secure HTTP address (https://).

For FTP (file transfer protocol) connections via port 990, 2048-bit SSL encryption is supported and required on all connections.

For FTP (file transfer protocol) connections via port 21, 2048-bit SSL encryption is supported and required by default. You may configure your account to allow insecure FTP connections by setting an option.

Customers initiate upload and download processes, utilizing the method and protocol which matches their needs. Please refer to the Files.com Shared Responsibility Model for more information.

File contents (including backups) are encrypted at rest using AES-256 with all keys stored in a key-management escrow service operated by AWS.

All access and authentication credentials are stored in an encrypted state, using AES-256 and a random initialization vector. These items include:

  • Storage Access Keys and Secrets (AWS S3, Azure Blob, Google Cloud Storage, etc.)
  • SMTP passwords
  • Active Directory / LDAP passwords
  • SSL Certificate Private Keys
  • PGP / GPG Private Keys

Custom SSL certificates are provided for free to customers who use their own Custom Domain, or they are free to provide their own from their vendor of choice.
