EmailLargeFile vs "free" file sharing services

There are a few decent free, or nearly-free, file sharing services available these days. One of the most known is SkyDrive, provided by Microsoft.

This product is quite convenient to use, however it provides little control on who can access your files. After downloading the software you essentially open the door from your computer to the outside world.
Once you install the SkyDrive on your laptop, you will never know where your files are going once the link has been published. And you will never know how safe your peer connection is or whether the transmission is encrypted.

Same is true for Google file sharing service, which is called Google Drive (duh). This time, however, your file content may also get parsed for keywords and searched via the Google docs service.

What is great for friends and family, may not be always good for business files or documents.

If you are concerned about the security of your data and need a complete control over file distribution, we suggest you to take a look at our managed file sharing service.
Emaillargefile.Net is here to help.

First, it does not download or install additional software to your machine. This means, there are no open doors.

Second, with its precise email submission system, it can send messages to the exact people you select from your address book, and you always know if the message has been sent and if they received the files.

When people download the file, you either get a text message on your cell phone or an email message on you computer, this is like a digital return receipt, if you will. You can always turn off notifications or change the notification method.

Next, you can see and download the detailed reports about who, when, and where opened your packages and downloaded your files.

Even more, all file transfers only go via the encrypted HTTPS protocol, and along with two (or more if needed) password protection layers, this makes EmailLargeFile.Net compliant with HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.

And last, but not least, you can make your file only available to a certain geographic or organizational area. We track geolocation information on each click and download, so you can set custom rules on files and packages if you want them to be accessible by a very limited or a very broad area of recipients.
