Share3D Security Overview

Last Modified: April 2, 2013

This security overview is provided to help you better understand the security measures QuadriSpace Corporation has put in place to protect the information that you store and share using Share3D.

Secure Storage

Share3D uses Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) for data storage. According to Amazon, Amazon S3 is designed to store data over several large-scale data centers. Amazon S3 keeps redundant backups of your files over multiple locations to help prevent the possibility of data loss. Amazon S3 uses military-grade perimeter control berms, video surveillance, and professional security staff to keep these data centers physically secure.

According to Amazon, Amazon encrypts the files that you store on Share3D using the AES-256 standard, which is the same encryption standard used by most banks to secure customer data. Encryption for stored files is applied after files are uploaded, and Amazon manages the encryption keys.

Secure Transfers

Your files are sent between Share3D’s desktop clients and Share3D’s mobile apps to the data storage servers over a secure channel using 256-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption, the standard for secure Internet network connections.

Privacy

Share3D employees are prohibited from viewing the content of files you store in your Share3D account, but may view file metadata (e.g., file names and locations). Like most online services, we have a certain designated employees who may access your user data as set forth in our Privacy Policy.

Third-party Apps

If you choose to access Share3D using third-party applications, be aware that those applications use their own security protocols and have their own privacy policies. If you’re not comfortable with the privacy and security features of those applications, you shouldn’t use them to access Share3D.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement

As set forth in our privacy policy, and in compliance with United States law, Share3D cooperates with United States law enforcement when it receives valid legal process, which may require Share3D to provide your files to law enforcement agencies. In these cases, Share3D may remove encryption placed by Share3D or Amazon from the files before providing them to law enforcement.

Reporting Security Exploits

We take a number of measures to ensure that the data you store on Share3D is safe and secure. However, no system can guarantee data security with 100% certainty. We will investigate any and all reported security issues concerning the Share3D services. You may report security issues to security@Share3D.com.
