Take Control

Once your files are uploaded to AXEL Go, you have final control over them. You have the ability to protect your data with an encrypted password for an extra layer of security. Choose whether or not the intended recipient can download the files. Then, get your shareable link and send it off. Remember to set a link expiration date to safeguard yourself and prevent documents from being shared without permission.

All of these options are available to you, even after you’ve shared the file. So, if you forget to set a link expiration date for a sensitive document, no worries! You’re always in control.

No Oversight

Tired of Big Brother watching over you on other file-sharing platforms? AXEL Go uses a decentralized network of Masternodes rather than monitored central servers. Your files are split up during a process called “sharding” and distributed to a node, eliminating the corporate middlemen. When you share a file, the shards are spread out to other nodes in our network.

You don’t have to put your faith in a singular 3rd-party entity to safeguard your documents anymore. So, while we aren’t Big Brother, you don’t have to take our word for it.

Optional Encryption

Users who need additional security for confidential files can use encrypted passwords. Select the “Encryption” option when sharing or storing documents and input a unique password. Once entered, the encryption process runs the original plaintext passphrase through an advanced algorithm that results in garbled, seemingly-random characters. Unless someone has the decryption key, the password is impossible to crack.

AXEL Go uses the trusted AES 256-Bit encryption algorithm to protect user passwords. AES 256 encryption is the official standard for the United States government and the only cipher approved by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) for use with top-secret information.

The possible combinations needed to be calculated by a computer to brute force crack the algorithm results in a 78-digit number. Consider that a billion possible combinations is only a 10-digit number, and you start to see how much security the algorithm provides. Experts estimate it would take the world’s fastest supercomputer billions of years to brute force its way through an AES 256 key.

AXEL Go offers encrypted shares for both the free Basic account as well as the Premium account. Tick the “Encryption” box when creating a shared link and enter a strong password.

Encrypted cloud storage is only available to our Premium subscribers. Premium AXEL Go accounts have numerous benefits for a small fee of $9.99/month. Any user who would prefer all of their files to remain password encrypted should look into our Premium plan.
