SURFnet FileSender: send large files securely

This post is over 5 years old, it may be out of date.

Since February 24, securely transfering large files has become possible for employees with a mail address with the experimental version of SURFnet FileSender. Files up to 100GB can be sent to a maximum of 25 recipients. You can also send others a “guest voucher” with which they can make use of this service. The transfer of files is encrypted (https) to a server of SURFnet in the Netherlands. FileSender is often more useful than alternatives because of the maximum size or the information security. The SURFnet FileSender service is based on the FileSender project, in which SURFnet participates.
