Configuring Files.com For Maximum Security

To ensure the highest level of security on your Files.com site, please ensure the following:

  • To ensure that nobody accidentally transfers a file on your account using insecure FTP, do not enable the "Plain/unencrypted FTP support" setting in the Security tab of the Settings page.

  • Do not allow connections with insecure ciphers via the "HTTPS, FTPS, and SFTP ciphers" setting on the Security tab of the Settings page.

  • On the Security tab of the Settings page, set the backup retention period as low as possible to minimize the amount of your data we retain as backups. For maximum security, you should set this value to be no higher than 30 days. Many of our customers enter lower values such as 7 days or even 0 days.
