Security is our priority

We have put in place a sophisticated information security framework to assess risks and develop a security culture at SharePlace.

By design, SharePlace integrates several levels of protection distributed over a distributed and reliable infrastructure:

  • SharePlace protects stored data and data in transit between our applications and servers. To ensure data integrity and security, SharePlace uses an end-to-end encryption system for both documents and discussions using random AES 256 keys.
  • You can access your files and discussions from the desktop application, web interface and mobile applications with the same level of security.
  • Data and files are saved in encrypted form on exclusively French data centres.

In addition, all the operations carried out (new document, new comments, etc.) are recorded in the blockchain and make it possible to draw up a complete and certified audit report.


Protecting your account

Choose a unique password that is difficult to guess and that you do not use anywhere else. Test it with a password security assessment tool when you create your account or reset your password regularly.

With SharePlace, teamwork has never been easier!
