Protect/ Track/ Update/ Revoke

FileString empowers people and businesses to protect, distribute and track sensitive and confidential files with an easy-to-use file control service. When files are shared or distributed with FileString, only authorized recipients can view, forward, and print files.  Activity by recipients including viewing and printing is tracked; distributed copies of files can be overwritten with updates, and access to distributed files can be revoked. FileString ensures that file owners retain ownership after their file is distributed.

FileString solves the problem of loss of control over distributed content with an easy-to-use file control cloud service. FileString empowers people to control the distribution of their most important content. FileString provides four pillar capabilities:

  • Protect your files by controlling recipients ability to view, forward, print, and download.
  • Track every view by every recipient, including the duration of the view, and receive email notifications when files are viewed and printed.
  • Update recipients’ copies of files to the latest version by pushing updates that overwrite distributed copies.
  • Revoke recipients’ access to files, remotely deleting distributed copies, by setting an expiration date or by manually revoking access.
