Safe Uploading and Downloading Business Files
Uploading and downloading files securely is vital for business.
When sharing large amounts of data it’s essential that your file-sharing system can fend off any malicious attacks. Malware usually takes the form of a malicious document with an innocuous extension, like.jpeg or.gif. This method lets hackers bypass security measures and replace a legitimate file with one that looks similar but is in fact a malicious program. One way to guard against these kinds of “undercover invasions” is to have an option to verify the content of uploaded files based on their extensions.
You can configure your upload system to ensure it examines the name of the file type as well as extensions to see whether they are compatible with a malicious extension. This is best combined with other security measures. A defense-in depth approach is necessary to protect your business.
