  • File Transfer Security
  • As part of our ongoing commitment to customers and contacts, we are doing everything reasonable to prevent the onward transmission of infected files or data.
    All incoming files are scanned, however we have recently encountered problems with password protected zipped files. As the system is unable to open the file it now quarantines it for safety, leaving us with your e-mail, but no access to the attached data!
