expressFlow, file encryption service, offers the expressFlow API that allows developers to integrate complex file processing tasks into third party applications. expressFlow adds a new level of security to cloud storage services like Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, and more. expressFlow eliminates the need for manual encryption and protection processes. Basic calls to the expressFlow API allows developers to add encryption to files from any application.

Martin Vasko founded expressFlow in 2012 as a follow up to PHD research. Vasko won a Microsoft Innovation Award for his idea and went on to develop a full product offering. The service has tacked on to the rapid adoption of cloud file sharing services, and has kept its award winning ways.

The expressFlow API uses REST protocol and returns calls in a JSON data format. The API adds cloud-based encryption to cloud-based file sharing. Thus, everything is in the cloud which allows for scalability and simplicity. For more information or to register for an API key, visit the developer site.

One of the biggest arguments against cloud storage remains security. Consumers and businesses are happy to share documents they wouldn’t mind sharing with the public or potentially losing. However, what about tax returns, healthcare documentation, and bank statements? Without a solid security solution to pair with a cloud storage service, most won’t consider moving such delicate information to the cloud. Perhaps expressFlow adds the needed security blanket and the API enables seamless integration with the workflows and apps used on a daily basis.
