Digify, http://www.digify.com, a multi-platform confidential file sharing service, today announced that it has been selected as an 18th annual SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards Finalist in the Privacy & Security category. Digify is a secure self-destructing, view-only file content protection and sharing service for professionals to easily retain control of their files after they are sent.

Winners from each category will be revealed and honored at the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards Ceremony taking place the evening of Tuesday, March 17, 2015, on the sixth floor of the Hilton Austin Downtown.

With Digify, files shared are view-only and self-destructing. Users can track and unshare their files even after sending. Digify's freemium service ensures that users can control, track and protect files without concern that their private documents or photos will be copied or redistributed after they are sent.

Files shared using Digify cannot be downloaded, copied, saved or uploaded elsewhere, and can be set to self-destruct in one minute to one month. Users are notified when their files are opened or forwarded. Digify's advanced content protection helps build trusted, collaborative relationships with partners and colleagues.

“In a world of constant digital messaging and sharing where sensitive information can be read by anyone and is out there forever, people need to secure their files or face a very real risk of losing control of their confidential information. Digify gives senders back control of their most important information and keep it from falling into the wrong hands,” said Augustine Lim, co-founder and CEO, Digify. “Senders can now easily and effectively secure their communications through Digify’s copy protect and self-destruct preferences, ensuring that no trace of their information is left on recipients’ devices, as well as track who has viewed their files and unshare them any time they choose.”

Digify's service is tightly integrated with storage services, such as Dropbox and Google Drive, allowing millions of users to more easily and securely share and maintain control of their critical documents, presentations, PDFs and images. Users can now safely browse and send a Dropbox or Google Drive file straight from the Digify app.

Digify protects content against copying, printing and downloads. Screen recordings and screenshots are blocked on all platforms, except the web. On iOS devices, if recipients try to take a screenshot, the sender will be notified and the file unshared. On all other native app platforms (Android, Windows, Mac) screenshots are completely blocked. Statistics in the Digify app shows who has seen it, for how long, and how often. Files can be unshared remotely at any time.
