File Sharing

Security, Mobility and Control is what sets our file sharing service apart from other providers.

Your File Sharing Solution should provide the security, mobility, and control your organization needs to feel confident when accessing and sharing critical business information and collaborating amongst internal and third party team members.

Team Administration and Security

Administrative Policy and Account Management are particular strengths within the context of Autotask Workplace service administration. These represent Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) mechanisms by which specific named accounts can be provided with varying levels of administrative permissions. This includes the ability to integrate with Active Directory

Platform Security

In the rapidly changing landscape of cloud services, companies that handle sensitive information, such as in the legal, finance, and medical sector, find that they are under increasing scrutiny over their information processing controls. AWP data centers are audited against both AICPA SSAE 16 / SAS 70 and ISAE 3402 criteria for system availability and security.

File Security

All files handled by the Alto Africa’s service are secured, both in transit and in storage, using 256-bit AES-encryption. Furthermore, in order to maximize the separation between teams, users, and files, a different unique rotating encryption key is used for each individual file.


Access to content stored within AWP is controlled and policed at different levels within the security architecture. Within the confines of overarching user policies that are established by Admins and enforced by the AWP service, users are free to establish their own content access policies as they share Projects with others, effectively dictating the type and method of access afforded to others.

IP Address Whitelist Policies

The IP Address Whitelist is also commonly referred to as an Access Control List (ACL) in computer networking security terminology. This feature enables the AWP Enterprise Admin to place a flexible set of restrictions on service login. Specifically, service login can be prohibited or allowed based upon a combination of the mode of access (browser, mobile app, desktop agent) and the source IP address.
