Secure transfer and storage of large data files with new Adept TeamBeam service
Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.) announces the availability of a highly secure, stable and reliable service for the transfer and storage of large sets of data. Adept TeamBeam, which stores and routes data through servers operating under the stringent regulation of the German Federal Data Protection Act, ensures that sensitive and private data transfers remain absolutely secure.
The safeguarding of intellectual property is a prime concern of Adept Scientific’s customers. Research results, design data, engineering calculations, product specifications, costing details and more need to be shared with colleagues and customers, often at remote sites. But can they be sure that email, FTP, cloud storage sites and other transfer methods are truly secure?
Adept is now able to offer what the company believes is the safest, most secure data storage and transfer method available today, with powerful encryption technology protecting sensitive data. An easy-to-use solution from as little as €99 per month, Adept TeamBeam provides a user-friendly but highly secure method of storing and transferring even the largest data files, making it an ideal solution for data-intensive corporations in science, bioscience, pharmaceutical, engineering and other technology-based fields.
The dedicated TeamBeam servers are located in Germany and consequently all data routed through this service are subject to strict German privacy laws. The German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) is one of the, if not the, world’s most robust data privacy regimes, and includes stringent regulation of cross-border transmission of data.
All data is securely stored on encrypted hard disks behind a 128-bit encryption key. TeamBeam uses SSL encryption (AES 256 bit or equivalent) for transfers in either direction (upload and download) via HTTPS.
Transferring data securely via Adept TeamBeam is simple. After selecting the recipient(s), imported from existing email contact lists, the user simply drags and drops files or folders into the TeamBeam transfer window, then clicks ‘send’. TeamBeam deals automatically with any connectivity issues and continues interrupted transfers as soon as the network becomes available again.
Recipients are notified by email, with a link to a secure web page to download the files. The sender then receives a delivery confirmation notification, or an expiry notification (with an option to extend the date of validity) if the recipient has not yet downloaded the transfer. For data protection purposes all data is deleted at the end of the transfer validity period; customers can request to have this feature deactivated.
For storage, it’s just as simple to upload files and folders to a secure TeamBeam drive. Individual drives can be configured for each user, with customised access rights.
Adept TeamBeam Server, which allows unlimited transfer volumes, is administered via a web-based interface; and each user has a personal log-in to access the data portal. Full reporting and auditing features allow administrators to keep track of all transfers and usage. An optional checksum feature can be used to verify the content of each transfer, providing full traceability.
Optionally, specified users can be authorised to receive data from external business partners (who do not need their own TeamBeam account).
All TeamBeam components can be custom-branded and integrated into corporate design schemes; and TeamBeam supports English, German and French. Adept TeamBeam is available for both Windows and Mac.
A highly affordable Adept TeamBeam Personal version is also available for individual corporate workplaces, with the same secure data transfer capabilities and either a limited or unlimited transfer volume. Prices start from just €9 per month.
