Is it Smash secure?

Safety is your priority, and rightly so, so is ours too.

At Smash, we have a team dedicated to security. Every day, our team continuously implements a set of engineering tools and practices to secure access to personal data, using encryption techniques that are among the highest standards in the industry.

We can assure that we use the best ways to secure your use of our file transfer service:

  • The files stored on Smash are encrypted using the AES standard (Advanced Encryption Standard), 256 bits.

  • Smash uses the SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security) protocol to protect the data during their transfer between the Smash application and the servers.

  • We regularly test the Smash applications and infrastructure to identify possible security breaches, strengthen their security and protect them against attacks.

  • Amazon Web Services stores the data and files with its S3 service.

  • The servers that store the data and files are located in 9 geographic regions of the world.  We store the files as close as possible to your location. For example, in Paris if you are in France, in Frankfurt if you are in Germany, in London if you are in the UK, in New York if you are on the East Coast of the United States, in Sao Paulo if you are in Brazil, etc.

  • The files are automatically deleted from the servers once the Smash has expired.

Also, obviously, only people who are in possession of the your transfer link can access it. We have implemented various features, such as customization of the validity period or password protection in order to give you the means to best secure your transfers and files.
