About the Digital Vault
Absolutely. Every document you place in your Digital Vault is protected by the encryption standard adopted by the U.S. Government. All documents are sent over the Internet using Secure Sockets (HTTPS, 256-bit encryption for modern browsers and 128-bit encryption for older browsers).

For added security, you have the ability to assign separate passphrases to each document in your Digital Vault. Members of your Family Office can also be given selective access to the documents in your Vault, ensuring that they see only what you want.

You must type a passphrase that will result in encryption strength of at least 40 percent. Passphrase strength is displayed while you upload a document. The following are examples of passphrases from Average to Strong.

Average: Combining two words or a passphrase of approximately 8 to 10 characters, such as "sevensummitas?" or "himalaya".

Good: Combining special characters and numbers, such as "$makalu44?" or "!Anna$Purna".

Strong: Combining uppercase and lowercase letters and intermingling special characters, such as "$LhosTe" or ?"@Ka%me#t3".

Each day, Summitas conducts a complete backup of the Summitas Digital Vault and all other content, and stores the information in multiple, highly secure locations. Summitas disk storage is redundant and recoverable without loss-of-service.
From your Digital Vault, click the "Member Permissions" icon at the top of the page. Now you can grant or restrict access to the documents in your Vault.
