Why Secudrive File Server?

Many organizations operate their own file servers to collect and share confidential files relating to accounting, business development, privacy, and product design. Therefore, it is crucial for a business to manage file servers securely. If a file server is attacked by ransomware, most of the work can be stopped, or if a user sends a file from a shared folder to an unauthorized person by mistake or on purpose, the business can be severely damaged.

Secudrive File Server adopts DRM technology to control user rights in shared folders. It can prohibit files from being copied, network transferred, printed, or screen captured while files can be created and edited freely in a secure shared folder. All user and file activity logs on a file server can be gathered, filtered, and monitored. Secudrive File Server improves security and productivity.

In contrast to the general file synchronizing and sharing using a public cloud service, Secudrive File Server maximizes security because it can utilize file server regardless of the location and adopts DRM technology to prevent a data breach. Secudrive File Server applies DRM policy folder by folder to manage it easily, while other e-DRM solutions do it file by file. Secudrive File Server can easily transform your existing file servers to secure file sharing systems.

Major Features and Benefits

Secure shared folder

  • If a shared folder within a file server is set as a secure shared folder, each user of that folder is subject to the right restrictions relating to copying, network transferring, printing, and screen capturing assigned in advance.

Folder-by-folder DRM

  • DRM policy for a user applies not to a file but to all files in a shared folder. Folder-by-folder DRM is easier to manage than file-by-file management, which most enterprise DRM solutions adopt.

Editable but leakage prevented

  • While the users’ rights to copy, network transfer, print, or screen capture are securely restricted, editing the file within the secure shared folder works perfectly if given permission to do so. The transparently assured security boosts workforce productivity.

Application whitelisting

  • Runnable applications during the use of a secure shared folder can be whitelisted beforehand. It prevents ransomware in advance by prohibiting unknown applications from being installed.

Secure file transfer

  • When confidential files need to be sent out of the secure file server, not only the transfer log files but also copies of those log files are created for post-audits.


  • Able to set restriction on the capacity of export files or number of prints per day. If it exceeds, notification email is sent to the administrator.

Log management

  • All of the user and file activity logs can be gathered, filtered, and monitored in real time.

Control of all kinds of copy commands

  • All kinds of copy commands, such as copy and paste, save as to local PC, save to external drive, and clipboard copy and paste, can be under control.

Print control options

  • Printing can be banned. When allowed, a watermark can be stamped on the document. A spooled file is encrypted and then sent to the printer.

Hassle-free add-on to an existing file server

  • A simple software installation upgrades an existing file server to a secure one while preserving the original users, authorities, and file system. The existing shared folders can be converted to secure shared folders selectively.

Enterprise environment supported

  • The existing Active Directory environment can be integrated.

Use Cases

  • A secure file storing and sharing system with DRM by installing Secudrive File Server to the existing file server.
  • A virtual data room for collaboration with outside partners by installing Secudrive File Server onto the cloud server.
