Alternatives to Password-Protected Zip Files
HENNGE Secure Download
HENNGE Secure Download is a file transafer solution that provides an alternative to password-protected zip file operations. This service automatically detaches and uploads the attached files when the E-Mail is sent, meanwhile sends the recipient a PDF file with the original E-Mail body and the URL to download the attachments. Recipients can verify their E-Mail address via the URL on the PDF file and enter the verification code to download the file.
What is the problem with Password-Protected Zip Files?
“Traditional solutions automatically converst attachments into password-protected zip files and then sends the password through the same route.
Though this method has been adopted by many companies, recently its safety and convenience have been questioned and there has been a movement among government agencies and private companies to discontinue this approach.”
Possibility of Information Leakage
Sending the zip file and password via the same route increases the risk of interception, as well as with the risk of information leakage due to mistakenly sent E-Mails.
Risk of Malware Infection
The difficulty in inspecting the contents of a password-protected zip file with a general anti-malware tool is exploited in cyber attacks and renders malware infection.
Low Convenience to Recipients
It takes time and effort to enter the password sent separately. Besides, the zip file often cannot be unzipped and viewed from a smart device directly.

That Improves Security Without Compromising User’s Convenience
Since the convertion from attachment to URL is generated automatically, the sender simply needs to attach the file to an E-Mail as usual. It also frees users from manual zip encryption operation, leading to a reduction of work-hours .
Preventing Download by Third Parties
Only E-Mail recipients in TO / CC / BCC can download the file after verifying their E-Mail address. Users can check the download status from the user screen.
Countermeasures against Mistakenly Sent E-Mails
In the unlikely event that the attached file is sent by mistake, the URL can be invalidated after sending, reducing the risk of information leakage due to accidental transmission.
Improved Convenience to Recipients
No advance preparation or installation is required to the file recipients. Files can be downloaded via smart devices, which has been difficult with conventional zip files.
