With Quiver you are really in control of your files, track who has access and revoke at anytime, anywhere.
Amsterdam (PRWEB) March 07, 2016
Quiver, an Amsterdam-based startup and a digital information security specialist, has developed a smartphone application where users can safely share digital files. With Quiver users can securely share photos, videos, and documents stored on their mobile device on their own terms.
Security and maintaining control of files is an enormous problem in the digital world. It is impossible to know what happens with files once someone clicks send. Without thinking twice, people share important documents, such as a copy of their passport, via email or another online service. But, how can they be sure that these files will not fall into the hands of the wrong people? And how do they ensure that shared files are returned without being misused or copied?
Quiver has the answers to these questions. By thinking outside of the box when it comes to security and making user friendliness a top priority, Quiver allows the retracting of documents even if they have already been downloaded. With Quiver, the file owner decides who, where, when, and how documents can be accessed.
How does it work?
Quiver is free to use and works similar to cloud storage services such as Dropbox. It’s unique in offering unlimited free storage and sharing through mobile numbers. After downloading the app (iOS and Android) and creating an account, files can be securely shared with others.
With every file shared through Quiver, several levels of security can be attached such as:
-Geolocation: The file is only accessible at a chosen location, such as home or work.
-Time: The file is only available for a certain period of time such as a couple of seconds, two hours, or several days.
-Copy/Edit/Print: With this feature unwanted edits, copying or printing of documents can be prevented.
-Screenshots: Select this option and screenshots will become impossible on iOS, Android, or desktop computers.
-Forwarding: Prevent files from being forwarded to others without the file owner's consent.
-Revoke: Whenever needed, a file can be retracted and everyone in possession of this file can no longer view it, even if it was already downloaded.
-Trace: Receive real-time information on files’ usage: who opened, forwarded, screenshot, or downloaded it, etc.)
“Almost every day there are news reports of leaked data and identity fraud. At Quiver, we encourage digital sharing and online collaboration and strive to make this possible for all of our users. But, this must be done in a safe and user-friendly manner. We want to provide companies and individuals with a safer alternative to Dropbox. Our ambition is to surpass Dropbox as the number one file-sharing app. The Quiver team is convinced this will become a reality with our cutting-edge technology. With Quiver, you are always in complete control of all your files, everywhere.”

Quiver provides an extra security layer, which makes sure that documents are handled according to your rules. This makes Quiver, a safer alternative for services such as Dropbox or Box.
