Professionals must share digital files frequently, even daily. Although email is convenient, it is unreliable and insecure. It exposes them to multiple security risks while in transit as well as when siting on the recipient’s email server. Copies can hang in the ’ether’ for years and possibly on multiple servers.
"No big deal. I have nothing to hide,” you say to placate the suspicious voice in your head.
I wonder if a ‘rival’—business competitor or former partner, ex spouse, estranged friend, jilted lover, etc.—would think the same. Should you trust all your past associates with everything you’ve emailed? What about the early drafts of documents? Did you send something in a pique?
And what about your professional clients and colleagues, are their files secure on your email? Do they have 'noting to hide'?
Unless an email is encrypted, no files are secure. As a professional, you have an obligation to secure clients and colleagues files. PPecloud is a secure(r*) alternative than sharing files through email.
Check the oldest file in your device’s email.
My oldest is six years, and I’m security conscious. Likely, that attachment sits on the email server still, unless you’ve taken extra steps to remove the file. Any file you’ve ever sent, likely, sits on the recipient’s server as well.
Check the oldest file on your email server.
How old is the oldest file? 1-? 5-? 10-years? Most likely it still sits on that server, too, for others' eyes to (ab)use.
Big Tech makes oodles of money off this myth. No, it’s not difficult and requires only a few steps. PPecloud makes the process simple and, certainly, more secure than email.
See how easy
Upload a file to an online folder
Yes, that simple. With your own PPecloud account, you can add a password and expiration date for even better security.

That’s it. You’ve just securely shared a file, and you control who can access and for how long. Clients also can share files using a mobile app because we use Nextcloud products.
Ultimately, nothing online is perfectly secure, just like nothing is perfectly safe in your office. Sending files via email is like pasting files on your window for anyone walking by to read. Using PPecloud is analogous to leaving a file on your desk. And password protecting a file is like locking it inside your desk. Professionals need to secure their files online too.
We created PPemail for professionals who need portable yet secure email and file storage. Because clients pay for our services, by contract, we do not and will not commodify their activity. (MORE)
