Secure Shared Link

For Business and Enterprise Edition users, Secure Shared Link is an extension to a shared link where additional security is applied to give the sender more control over who can access the shared link and for how long.

Syncplicity Rights Management

For Syncplicity Enterprise Edition users, Syncplicity Rights Management extends and enhances the capabilities of Syncplicity Shared Links. This feature offers an added layer of protection to sensitive documents even after they have left the enterprise.

Recipients of Syncplicity Rights Management files can view the file online or download a protected copy of the file. Access to the file is restricted to intended recipients only, and the actions which may be performed on the document are controlled by the sender and the organization's policies. The Syncplicity Rights Management feature protects the file so it remains protected even after users download, copy, or email it to other people.
