FileThis cloud filing service exits beta

Jason Snell | Feb. 17, 2014
Two years after announcing itself at Macworld/iWorld, the cloud document-gathering service FileThis has made it out of beta and fully into the real world.

When I met with FileThis CEO Brian Berson, he seemed to take quite seriously the faith that FileThis's users put in his company. And he detailed many of the security systems they've put in place to protect customer data both from hackers and from potentially malicious employees. (It's a ten-person company, but Berson said that every new employee undergoes a background check, and employees only have access to the areas they are specifically working on, and no others.)

In any event, I have to admit loving the convenience of FileThis. I connected up a few services — my cable company and a credit card — and the statements just started tumbling into my Dropbox. From there, I was able to share the FileThis folder with my wife's Dropbox. I could also, for instance, share some key folders with my accountant. And they're all there, accessible (and searchable via Spotlight) on my Mac. There's also an iOS app and a forthcoming Android app.
