Today, I came across a new site called SendItoMe. In simple terms, SendItoMe is like YouSendIt, except with better security, like encrypted HTTPS session (SSL/TLS) to make sure your data is secure, and with a few other features. To date, what many of these file transfer sites don’t provide is security. When I send over a big document, I don’t want the the whole world to see it; all I want is that the person I am sending the file to is able to see it, and nobody else. With SendItoMe, that is the case. With their SSL/TLS security, intruders can’t peek on the downlaod, and after 24 hours, the file gets deleted. That’s what I call security.
I don’t like sending files over the internet for two reasons:
- Security: If I send a file, it is usually intended for one person, and one person only. With YouSendit you don’t know what happens after its uploaded. It probably stays on their servers, but who knows. With SendItoMe the file gets deleted in 24 hours.
- Simplicity: There are other services that are similar to SendItoMe, but this service is very to use. All you have to do is type in the recipient’s email address, your email address (which is optional), and the message to recipient (also optional), and locate the file on your computer. It’s that simple.
In conclusion, I think SendItoMe has a great future, and their security features really win me away. I don’t tend to send files using these types of services, but I might just have to start using SendItoMe,
What do you think of SendItoMe? Would you use a service like this? Leave your opinion in a comment below.
