What is PSMail’s Cabinet service?

Cabinet is a service that lets you store your files – videos, pictures, documents, etc. – in secure online storage. These files can then be accessed by all your devices (computers, smart phones, tablets, etc.) from anywhere with an Internet connection. This allows you to, for example, begin working in one location, continue via mobile device as you’re on the move, and complete your task once you’ve arrived at your destination.

 

Cabinet solves many of the problems encountered with traditional file management. It eliminates:

  • The need to make multiple copies of the same file.
  • Confusion over which file among the many scattered across several devices is most current.
  • The danger of losing a file that was saved on a USB/thumb drive.
  • The hassle of emailing yourself a file to get it from your PC to phone to iPad, etc.
  • The necessity of keeping a secure backup of your file in a remote location.

PSMail’s Cabinet requires a secure protocol for any files to be accessed or used. This means that an authenticated, secure connection keeps anyone from viewing or tampering with your information assets.
