FileSender (filesender.heanet.ie) allows you to bypass email limitations when sharing large files with anyone, simply and securely:
- Login to FileSender via Edugate (HEAnet’s authentication service).
- Add the email address(s) of those you want to share large files with and attach the file(s) – the recipients get a link to download the file(s)
- Files can be downloaded as often as you like for a period of 30 days
- FileSender will accept files up to 500GB (that about 730 full length movies)
FileSender offers end to end encryption – allowing users to send sensitive data – secure in the knowledge that no one, including HEAnet, can access the content without a password set by you.
FileSender is a federated service which means to use it, you MUST be a member of our Edugate Federation.
However, FileSender does offer a once-off voucher system which allows users to nominate non Edugate members to send files. This ensures a user can both send and receive files through FileSender, even if dealing with an external non-federated partner.
Cost: FileSender is available to all HEAnet clients at no additional cost.
