Security & Data centers
Is Filecamp reliable, secure, and confidential? Is our data safe? Where is the data hosted?
Bank Level Security
All communications between you and Filecamp is encrypted using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and HTTPS protocol. This is the same functionality used by banks and other high-profile e-commerce sites. Files and folders are only publicly viewable when they are accessed through a Share Link.
Even though our hosting partner, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), provides data redundancy on all disks, we are performing daily backups (Google snapshots) of all system data. These snapshots are stored for 30 days and can be restored (for a fee) if you accidentally have deleted files from your account (and emptied your trash).
Trust & Security
Take advantage of the same secure-by-design infrastructure, built-in protection, and global network that Google uses to protect your information, identities, applications, and devices.
Google Data centers maintain secure external perimeter protections. All data centers employ electronic card key access control system that are linked to a system alarm. Access to perimeter doors, shipping and receiving, and other critical areas is logged, including unauthorized activity.
Trust & Security
Google Cloud’s security model, world-scale infrastructure, and unique capability to innovate will help keep your organization secure and compliant.
Google has mechanisms in place to protect its cloud infrastructure and its production services. These mechanisms are designed to ensure that no single service can overwhelm the shared infrastructure and to provide isolation among customers using
the shared infrastructure.
Google unique security model includes an Information Security Team consisting of top experts in information, application, and network security. Their notable achievements include: discovering the Heartbleed vulnerability, and implementing an “SSL by default” policy at Google.
The fire doors at the data centers are alarmed and can only be opened from the inside. CCTV cameras are in operation both inside and outside the data centers. Cameras
record on site via digital video recorders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
