Finally, I’m in Control

We’ve all been in situations where we need to send someone a file that contains personal or confidential information, but we find ourselves hesitating before clicking send. Thoughts such as “I don’t really know this person,” or “what if I don’t want them to have my stuff anymore” run through our head, leaving us feeling uneasy.
 
Perhaps you’re sending a form that asked for your birth date, social security number, income, values of assets, etc. Maybe it’s your business plan that you have poured months or years into writing. It could just be something that you simply don’t want to end up in the wrong hands.
 
Problem
In today’s world, sharing is easy. Too easy. Once you’ve shared your important file, you no longer have control. The recipient is now in control and makes decisions on how to handle YOUR data.
   · They can share it with other people or companies (intentionally or accidentally).
   · They can print or save your file insecurely (likely saved to the cloud).
   · They can keep it forever, and you can’t take it back.
 
Solution
With LockDown, YOU control who can see your files and what they can do with them.
   · Only the intended recipient can see your file.
   · Control what intended recipients can do with your file (view only, print, etc.).
   · Watermark your file with your information and/or the recipient’s name.
   · Forwarded files can’t be viewed by unauthorized recipients.
   · Revoke the recipient’s access to your file at any time. They will no longer be able to view your file even if they’ve saved a copy.
 
Moral of the Story
Never Concede Control. With LockDown, go about your daily routine knowing that you don’t have to feel uneasy when sharing important files or documents.
