How to Ensure Safe Uploading and Downloading of Business Files

It is crucial to ensure the safety of the files uploaded by users, regardless of whether you use a content management or file transfer protocol. Unrestricted uploads of files can create the possibility of a security risk and expose your customers' data to security breaches. In general, you'll need to save uploaded files in designated storage locations on your database, server or cloud storage service, and return the file, or provide a link to it to the user. It is also possible to store any form information provided along with the file.

You will need a solution to secure uploaded business files. This solution must check the content against a list of known harmful file types, and look for viruses. It is essential that the software you select is compliant with all laws applicable in your industry or the country you are in. If you're in the healthcare sector the solution you choose to use should be HIPAA-compliant. If you deal with EU citizens, your solution must be GDPR-compliant.

Many companies have a significant portion of their business that is based on physical documents. These documents need to be converted to digital versions. These could be photos that have been scanned, old paper contracts or written documents that must be uploaded for storage or collaboration. It's also important to be able for individuals working from remote locations to collaborate on these documents in a way that they can collaborate with one another. This is usually accomplished by scanning the document, and then converting it to digital format. Then it's shared online with anyone who needs it.
