Sharefile Security Concerns

We need to control some settings in sharefile to adhere to our IT security.


  1. External user account control – We need to set the expiry for external user account password, as we don’t have any control now if a user resigns from their organization. We would like to set a password expiry of 1 month for every external user accounts

  2. Anonymous Sharing- Now user can share a link to external party anonymously and they can share the same with anyone, which we don’t have any control. Can we restrict the link sharing to particular email IDs only as user specifies.

  3. Link Expiry –Now there is unlimited option in expiry of the link, can we remove this and make maximum expiry of the link be 6 months

I want to add something here: being able (as admin) to export and process the full list of shares. Possibly to be sorted etc. in Excel, and enabling the "early expiry" (deletion) of shares. If you don't know and cannot knw that an employee has shared some top-level folder with non-expiring share, there is a massive risk for data leaks.
