Review of Encyro
Encyro lets you share files securely with any client using their email address, without first creating a portal account, a shared folder with permissions, or other invitation/setup tasks. It lets you both send and receive files from an unlimited number of clients. Encyro’s claim to fame is its ease of use both for you and your clients.
Encyro also auto-organizes your files into client folders. Encyro provides encrypted backup of all your shared files and messages at two or more distant data centers, to offer you rock solid data reliability.
Encyro offers several compliance features including access control, data integrity, configurable message expiry, audit trails and organization wide compliance settings. These settings let you comply with HIPAA, Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA), FINRA regulations, SEC, IRS Pub 4557 guidelines, and several mandatory standards.
Healthcare professionals, accounting and financial services, law firms, insurance firms, real estate and escrow services, benefits and HR processing, IT service providers, creatives and freelancers.
Encyro’s fully automated setup makes it especially attractive for solo practices and small firms with 2 to 20 staff members.
