Secure File Transfer Facility

The Secure File Transfer service offers a means of securely transferring files, large or small (including ePHI/ 3-Lock Data).

Files are uploaded via the web, scanned for viruses and malware, and a system generated email is sent to the recipient with a link to retrieve the file.

Files are encrypted while in transit and where they are temporarily stored.

There is a file limit size of 2GB. Please be aware the upload time will vary depending on the size of your file.

Files remain on the server for a maximum of 10 days after which they are deleted. Please note, the sender will also have the ability to delete a file sooner than 10 days. Yale ITS can remove files as needed. It is important for you to download and save files that have been shared with you locally to your computer.

Who can use it?

Members of the Yale community with an active and valid NetID are eligible to use this tool. In addition, any non-Yale individual can transfer files to a member of the Yale community once access has been granted by the Yale recipient. 

How much does it cost?

This service is available at no charge to the Yale community.
