My Docs Online has enhanced its web-based secure file delivery feature to add additional controls and a comprehensive delivery audit trail.
“We were the first to offer web-based file delivery, back in 1999,” said Stephen Campbell, CEO of My Docs Online, “and we’ve consistently enhanced and expanded our capabilities as user needs have evolved. What we are seeing now is the need for optional controls like passwords, variable expiration limits, and most importantly, a detailed audit trail documenting delivery and the ability to make changes after the fact. No other product offers our range of options coupled with an audit trail.”
In order to offer such a wide range of options without making the feature cumbersome to use, customization controls allow unneeded options to be hidden, allowing a streamlined, custom experience for each user. In addition, group administrators can control defaults and enforce group policies such as requiring passwords or setting a fixed expiration.
The new “Smart Label” feature allows users label a Share, and also save default values like custom comments and expirations for future use. Smart Labels also add more value to the Share Management portion of the product, making it easier to locate, verify and control Shares.
Users also have the option to generate a link they can send themselves, or select email addresses from an address book and let My Docs Online send the email.
The file delivery page displays the customer’s logo, and offers an optional zipped download of all files when there is more than one.
A web API is also available for third-party use.

My Docs Online yesterday released its “Secure File Delivery API” which allows web and mobile apps to easily incorporate HIPAA-compliant file delivery. Although My Docs Online supports a wide variety of professionals and small businesses needing secure file sharing, a significant part of their customer base uses the product for files containing “Protected Health Information” (PHI). This core competency should make My Docs Online an attractive partner for adding ad hoc file delivery to a variety of EMR, EHR and other medical applications.
My Docs Online Secure File Delivery includes the following features and options:
- Branded web page listing the files being delivered
- Optional PIN or password
- HIPAA compliant
- SSL standard for all connections
- Files encrypted at rest using AES256
- Default file delivery expiration in days with override
- Control panel enabling checking of delivery results, link reuse, and delivery cancellation
- Delivery results query via API
- Delivery cancellation via API
