Secure spaces for sensitive data

Project Folders allow you to create a secure, shared workspace in the cloud on the fly.

In just a few clicks, users can begin accessing files over SFTP or HTTPS using your own secure, branded cloud platform, provided by Quatrix®.

Granular and restrictive permissions for folders and subfolders enable close control of data, while the built in Quatrix compliance and audit features provide confidence in knowing who has access to it at all times.

Project Folders

Flexible structure and hierarchy

Folder configuration and hierarchy can be customized to your requirements.

For example, you might create a folder for incoming files which only external users have permission to upload files to, and another outgoing folder which only external users can list files in and download from.

Granular user and folder permissions

Granular permissions can be set for each folder and subfolder.

Below, you can see a list of all possible permissions, listed under “advanced” in Pro and Administrator accounts as part of the project folder creation process.

Jailed users

For the most restrictive access controls, Quatrix users can be assigned a Jailed User class, which provides access to specific Project Folders only, with no access to other Quatrix features.

We recommend using this for external users, to lock down their access, following the zero-trust security principle.

Secure Data Rooms

Quatrix’s Project Folder functionality enables the creation of virtual secure data rooms, for internal and external collaboration with named users.

Users can comment and tag files as well as co-edit using online collaboration features.
