UTSend: Helping you detach from attachments

Despite the fact that e-mail has been around for a few decades there are a ton of glaring security flaws in one of the web’s most common mediums for communication. If you are a student, staff or faculty member at the University of Toronto, you have access to send.utoronto.ca. This is a utility that allows you to share files with others at the University. Send is incredibly useful because it allows you to share files with other U of T users over the University’s network, making it ideal for transmitting academic or professional data. This even applies to sensitive information, including intellectual property and research data, which can be shared using this service provided you use an additional layer of encryption to protect it.
