Keeping your files organized will help you stay focused and productive. In Tresorit, tresors are the main building blocks of encrypted data management. You can use tresors to create team or project folders and manage collaborative file-sharing.
- All tresors are private until you share them.
- Invite members and set who can view, edit, share and delete files.
- Users who are invited to a tresor will have access to all files and folders in it.
How to use tresors
- When you add files to a tresor, Tresorit automatically uploads them to the cloud in an encrypted format.
- Enable sync to keep your files in sync between your local storage and the cloud.
- Log in from Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Linux devices to your account and access the most recent version of your cloud contents at any time.
- Invite members to your tresor to collaborate on files.
- Use links to share files with anyone, even with non-Tresorit users.
- You can always see who has access to your Tresorit files. Review active links in your tresors or check who can view, edit and share your content.
- As an admin, you can also check which tresors your members can access and create a data map that will help you comply with regulations.
Build content from a tresor level
Tresors are built to empower collaboration without compromising the security of your most confidential documents. Collaboration permissions are managed on a tresor level — when you invite a user to your tresor, you eventually grant them access to all files in that space. So, when you create a tresor, you should start by defining who might need those files later.
Drive productivity in your team
When you use Tresorit as a team or organization, you can build your tresor structure in two ways. You can either manage tresor creation from an admin level, or let your users handle it.
a. Keep tresor ownership at the admin level
As an admin, you can disable tresor creation for all users in the subscription. This way you can be the owner of every tresor and overview access permissions, content sharing and manage the offboarding of employees.
🏆 Pro tip: Users will still have their own, default tresor that is generated with their account. They will be able to upload their private files here.
How to do it
- Navigate to the Policies tab in your Admin Center.
- Create an admin template, where tresor creation is enabled.
- Move yourself to the admin template.
- Disable tresor creation for everyone else.
What to expect
- Users will turn to you when they need to create a new tresor for a project or a team. Make sure you have processes set in place for when this happens.
- You will have a higher workload, so we recommend assigning co-admins roles to trusted users who can help you with tresor creation.
- When a colleague is leaving the company, all you need to do is remove them from the tresors and they will lose access to company files.
b. Let your users manage their tresors
You can also give total freedom to your team to create, manage and share tresors as they wish. This is what we do here in Tresorit as well — everyone manages their own content, which empowers collaboration among teams and projects.
🏆 Pro tip: Even if you choose to go with this approach, you will have plenty of options to control content management in your team through your Admin Center.
What to expect
- Users will be able to create, manage and share their tresors with anyone. Make their job easier by creating a guideline for tresor naming and sharing.
- You won’t have ownership over created tresors, which means that content migration should be a part of employee offboarding.
- In certain cases, you may need to perform an account takeover, or remote wipe content from lost on stolen devices. Turn on Advanced Control in advance, to prepare for these situations.
- When you delete a user account, you also delete all their tresors. Make sure you re-assign these tresors to someone else.
