A flexible permissions model

Knowing who has access to your data – and who doesn't – is a foundational pillar of business security. Our flexible permissions model give you control over who can access your data, and for how long.

User Permissions

ExaVault allows you to create unlimited users and set permissions for each. You get full control over what each user can do, and what files or folders they can access.

You want to be able to limit users to only be able to upload but not delete files/folders? Check. Allow users to set up shares and notifications, but not upload or download files? No problem. Restrict them to only be able to see the New Clients directory? Done. Our user permissions model is extremely flexible, to give you tremendous control.

Share Permissions

When you share a file or folder, you want to be in control. Luckily, we've built in many controls and notifications so you always know what is happening with a share that you've set up.

For example, you can set up a share to expire in a week, and make it so it sends you and your boss an email every time the share is accessed. You can have a share where you enter the email of the people who should get the share, and make it so they have to enter a password you set to get into the share. You can even ask your users to give you their email address before they access the share.

A detailed share activity log lets you review who's done what at any given time. It keeps you up-to-date with who has been in the share, when it was created, and the invite status of all the people you've sent the share to.

Global Account Permissions

We also have an extensive set of global account permissions. You can enforce secure HTTPS/SFTP connections to your account ( no connecting via standard FTP ), can limit the IP addresses that are allowed to login, and force users to use complex passwords, among other things.

One last thing to note – all permissions set inside of ExaVault's web interface apply to folks connecting via FTP as well. We've taken FTP and modernized it with full backwards compatibility. No matter how users access their files, you're always in charge.
