Working at Home?

We won't spend too much time here recapping current events.  You know what's going on.  And you're probably working from home right now as you read this.

Encryptomatic LLC has been a digital company from the moment of its founding in 2005.  100% of our employees and contractors are able to work remotely. Its a way of working to which we are fully accustomed.  It has been a bit of a surprise to us just how much of the world is finally getting around to working online.

Since last week, things have slowed a bit for us, so if you have any questions about working online, or about how we work, or the tools we use, or whatever... feel free to connect with us.  We enjoy hearing from people like you, and are always glad to help in any way we  can. 

We are a small company. We are real people.  If we can do anything for you right now, we will be glad to try to help.

OutDisk Secure FTP is both a Windows desktop application and add-in for Microsoft Outlook.

It is not recommended for people who are unfamiliar with web servers.

Sending Large Email File Attachments from Microsoft Outlook with OutDisk SFTP Add-in

Businesses have long struggled with email file attachments.  Large file attachments in email are likely to bounce, failing to be delivered to the recipient. When they do arrive, they put a strain on server inbox resources.  Email file attachments also present a security risk from virus phishing attempts, causing email administrators to quarantine or strip the file from the email message.

There are plenty of 3rd party services who will provide email file attachment hosting for a fee.  Storing data outside of the organization and depending on the security protocol of the 3rd party provider is a great solution for some companies, but for those who use Microsoft Outlook and want more control of outbound email data, there is OutDisk SFTP.

OutDisk SFTP is an add-in that integrates with Microsoft Outlook 365/2019/2016/2013/2010. When an a sender attaches a file of any size to an email, OutDisk SFTP processes it without any additional requirement being placed on the sender.

In  seamless operation, OutDisk SFTP removes the attachment from the outbound email, uploads it over encrypted secure FTP to a company controlled server, and inserts a link and message into the email instructing the recipient to download the file.  Only the message and link are sent through email, while downloading the file occurs over secure TLS via https protocol.

OutDisk SFTP is free to try. If your organization needs an affordable and effective way to help your email users share files, while maintaining control on company servers,  try OutDisk SFTP.
