NordLocker has launched a new feature that allows users to securely share a password-protected locker, otherwise known as a folder, of files. In order to receive the sent files, the recipient doesn’t even need to be a NordLocker user.
This convenient sharing feature is incredibly easy to use. The files are shared via a link, and the recipient needs a password to access the files. For security purposes, once the set expiration date passes, the link becomes inaccessible. Thanks to NordLocker’s end-to-end encryption, files are fully protected throughout their journey.
“Whether it’s holiday videos or a client contract – here at NordLocker we believe that all files should be shared securely. With this new feature, we make secure sharing that much easier,” says Aivaras Vencevicius, head of product at NordLocker.
Currently, this feature is available on NordLocker’s web application.
In addition, NordLocker has introduced biometrics on iOS, which allows a more convenient and quicker login. iOS users are now also able to download NordLocker application logs for more information on their app. As privacy is at NordLocker’s core, it’s worth noting that these activity logs are encrypted and stored on the customer’s side. NordLocker’s customer support can only see it if the user decides to share it with the NordLocker team.
“With cybercrime rising every year, file encryption is becoming essential. We see that threats are becoming more sophisticated – phishing emails are becoming harder to detect, and malware is becoming more dangerous and advanced. Therefore I strongly recommend to treat your digital belongings just like you’d treat your physical assets – keep them locked up and secure,” says Aivaras Vencevicius, head of product at NordLocker.
NordLocker is the world’s first end-to-end file encryption tool with a private cloud. It was created by the cybersecurity experts behind NordVPN – one of the most advanced VPN service providers in the world. NordLocker is available for Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, supports all file types, offers a fast and intuitive interface, and guarantees secure sync between devices. With NordLocker, files are protected from hacking, surveillance, and data collection. For more information: nordlocker.com.

GuidePoint Security, a cybersecurity solutions leader enabling organizations to make smarter decisions and minimize risk, announced today that Cequence Security, the leading provider of Unified API Protection (UAP), has joined its Emerging Cyber Vendor Program. Through this partnership, Cequence Security will leverage GuidePoint’s federal expertise across sales and marketing, operations, engineering and procurement to expand their federal footprint. As part of this program, the Cequence Unified API Protection solution will soon be available under GuidePoint’s GSA Multiple Award Schedule Contract #GS-35F-508CA.
“While APIs are critical to enabling business, they have become a primary attack surface that must be protected,” said Jim Quarantillo, Federal Partner, GuidePoint Security. “Simply putting API gateways and WAFs in place to manage known APIs and known threats does not solve the API security issues to keep Government Agency data safe. A Unified API Protection solution that discovers, detects and defends against all API vulnerabilities, risks and threats is required.”
“Cequence Security is the only solution that protects organizations from every type of attack on the OWASP API Security Top 10, OWASP Web Application Security Top 10 and OWASP Automated Threat list,” said Mark Azad, Chief Revenue Officer, Cequence Security. “Through our partnership with GuidePoint Security, government agencies will have a complete solution for addressing all API risks.”
With the Cequence Unified API Protection (UAP) solution, customers can address every phase of their API protection lifecycle to defend APIs from attackers and eliminate unknown and unmitigated API security risks that can lead to API breaches, data loss, fraud, and business disruption. Security teams deploying the UAP solution achieve continuous protection of their complete API risk surface, enabling their organizations to reap the competitive and business advantages of ubiquitous API connectivity securely while meeting regulatory compliance.
