ITAR is the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, which is a set of United States government regulations that control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML) and related technical data. ITAR requires, in relevant part, that covered material (items listed on the USML) only be shared with U.S. persons absent special authorization or exemption.
Unlike SOC 2, there is no formal ITAR certification process. Because Files.com heavily relies on AWS and does not make use of the GovCloud capabilities of AWS, Files.com is unable to assert ITAR compliance.
PCI is the Payment Card Industry standard for cardholder data security. Our billing and signup processes are also PCI-compliant.
This should not be misunderstood to mean that our customers may store payment card data in Files.com. The Files.com Terms of Service disallows the Files.com service to be used for that use case.
