Safe And Secure File Transfer

SEEMail provides an excellent mechanism to transfer classified information (including file attachments) securely, in accordance with the NZ-ISM and PRS.  However, S/MIME SMTP email (on which SEEMail is based) has a practical size limit when transferring large files.  Any file attachment over a few MBs is like to be rejected.

To resolve this issue, Liverton has developed SHIFT – the SEEMail Hosted Internet File Transfer system.

Integration with SEEMail & Microsoft Outlook

  • File transfer integrated right into toolbar strip.
 Simple file transfer interface provides simple and clean operation
  • Easy to configure and fast to send
Certificate selection, one-time download option and email notifications
  • Select sending and receiving options and notifications.


SHIFT runs on the Liverton SEEMail server and uses the same encryption mechanism as SEEMail, including SEEMail certificates and encryption algorithms, to enable large file transfers between participating SEEMail/SHIFT agencies.

Users can connect to their local organisation’s Liverton SEEMail ‘SHIFT’ portal to upload a file of any size.  This file will be transferred to the recipient’s Liverton SEEMail server ready to be retrieved by the recipient.

Certainty of recipient

  • Files can only be transferred to confirmed organisations

Additional passphrase protection (optional)

  • Recipients would need to know a separate passphrase to be able to retrieve files

Defined Retention Times

  • All files have a retention period with a maximum of ten days.
  • The retention period is selected by the sender
  • Any file not retrieved within the retention period will be deleted from SHIFT

Delivery notifications

  • Senders and Recipients will both receive notifications of the status of files in transit.
  • The level of notifications is selected by the sender

Classification Tagging

  • Files can be tagged with their classification
  • Files will be scanned for classification tags and will only be sent if classification levels are allowed
  • Classification setting are consistent with SEEMail classifications

One-time download option

  • A file transfer can be flagged as one-time download. This means the file will be deleted from SHIFT as soon as it has been retrieved by the recipient

Delivery Delay

  • Files can be scheduled to be sent at a future date/time. This enables the sender to avoid large files swamping their WAN connection during peak times.
