CommandHub and Vault Systems launch File-Sharing on Security Steroids


HubDrop is the first Australian end-to-end encrypted file-sharing platform

Australian cyber security company CommandHub has announced the launch of Australia’s first fully secure file-sharing platform, called HubDrop, at the Australian Cyber Security Centre Conference in Canberra.

CommandHub has successfully undergone an IRAP assessment for provision of the HubDrop solution at ‘Protected’ level and the initial report has been submitted to the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). CommandHub is continuing to work with ASD for certification and inclusion on the Certified Cloud Services List. Hosting for the solution is provided on the Vault Systems ‘Protected’ ASD Certified cloud.

HubDrop is a secure, enterprise level, person-to-person file-sharing solution that allows individuals to access and share sensitive documents across computers and mobile devices (Apple, Android, and Windows devices) with double encryption at all points. HubDrop’s secure settings allow organisations, government agencies, and individuals to personally select what documents can be shared, and whom they can be shared with.

“HubDrop is the first file-sharing platform in Australia to integrate complete end-to-end encryption with the crucial security of having Vault Systems ASD ‘Protected’ cloud,” said Richard Cousins, Co-Founder of CommandHub. “With this technology the Australian Federal Government will be able to quickly and most importantly securely share sensitive documents and other files across different agencies enhancing collaboration and business processes.”

The very high security levels of the HubDrop platform are transparent to the user and the simple drag-n-drop upload system provides an intuitive user experience. HubDrop’s file storage setup provides a secure backup with protection from ransomware and file version accidents. Each user can create and edit their own folder structure and the user onboarding process is compatible with enterprise user management and single-sign-on facilities.

“We live in an age where classified information holds high value and hackers can go to great lengths to track and reveal vulnerabilities within the data source. With CommandHub’s end-to-end encryption and Vault Systems ‘Protected’ ASD certified cloud, government agencies can efficiently and securely share files between departments,” said Rupert Taylor-Price, CEO and Founder of Vault Systems.

“Our data is only as safe as the space in which it is kept. Not only does CommandHub’s security solutions add a security, but with Vault Systems ASD certified cloud we can guarantee that the Australian Governments data stays protected on a sovereign cloud under Australian jurisdiction.”

HubDrop is integrated with CommandHub’s end-point vault that fully protects files on mobile devices as well as personal computers. HubDrop depends on data being hosted by Vault Systems in a secure and protected cloud storage facility.
