safedrop has been developed by Od Consultancy Ltd, the same team that have have provided ultra secure dataroom service PROJECTFUSION.com since 2001.
We’re a small firm headquartered in London, UK. We started out building websites for bluechips like BT, and started our secure extranet service in the late 90’s. After 2001 we focussed our business on secure data sharing products, and have been happily self funded and profitable since. Our PROJECTFUSION dataroom was the first virtual dataroom in Europe, and continues to facilitate thousands of M&A transactions worldwide.
We love simplicity and security, and hate the unnecessary printing, couriering and paper pushing that still seem to pervade business, even in 2011! We’re working with government, schools and councils in the UK to send sensitive files; healthcare providers to manage patient data; and with Banks and corporates to send financial data. All online, all secure, and all virtually carbon free.
