Encrypt Data that is shared with Clients

I have a Cpa Client who wishes to receive data from clients but have it encrypt on their end before it transports to our office

Wanted to use Dropbox with SecreteSync but the Sync software is set for end of life.

Is there another software like it out there? or is there a platform I can use to accomplish this function

We believe we should provide the Encryption since we are requesting it.

Sounds Great Alan but a lot of these people are older and are not very Computer savy

We need to make is as easy as logging in and doing a drag and drop type solution

Hi Jospeph,

If you want it encrypted on their end before they send it, you will have to have some application / code running on their machine - there is no way around it.

You could seek to deploy javascript on their website that would do this, but if the clients are blocking such, then you would have to hold their hands to setting up exceptions, and that would mean across all OS / Broswers, including probably some Apple users - that would be a nightmare of support.

If they are mostly old, they probably prefer to send (or take) it in hard copy anyway - gives them someone to talk to as well.

Maybe best to consider the above zip option but offer the hardcopy option for those that prefer it, else they risk chasing away those non-computer-savvy clients.

Alan.

Hey @David Johnson - would you know by any chance how much (roughly) Citrix Share File costs? Being SaaS I assume its a per user per month fee but wonder if you know more details. Thank you

As mentioned in a PM it varies starting at $100/month
BoxCryptor seems to encrypt client-side, so that would definitely meet your stated requirements from a technical perspective.
Went with Citrix

Thanks Everyone
