Intralinks® Holdings Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions, today announced that it is offering free trials of Intralinks Courier™, a simple and secure file sharing solution, so U.S. tax preparers can safely file electronically. The technology offers tax preparers unprecedented security when sharing their most sensitive financial documents with accountants and lawyers in advance of the April 15 deadline for tax filings.
Tax season is a time of record fraud and data theft. According to a new report by the Consumer Sentinel Network, a law enforcement coalition focused on identifying and fighting fraud, one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States involves stealing social security numbers to claim tax refunds. GoBankingRates.com, a consumer banking and finance website estimated that approximately $5.2 billion in tax refunds have been stolen so far in 2013. The number of investigations launched by the IRS into tax refund fraud has more than tripled since 2010.
Sharing sensitive information through e-mail or physical storage devices can put private information in danger of being stolen. Intralinks Courier is as simple to use as e-mail, but lets users maintain visibility and control over files even after they have been sent. Additionally, the technology offers security capabilities like built-in rights management. Sharing files quickly doesn’t have to mean losing control of high-value content.
