What Should I Send Via UT Vault?

Send Sensitive Information Securely

You should use the UT Vault when you have the need to send files securely. All confidential and/or classified information should be sent securely. This kind of information includes, but is not limited to:

  • HIPAA-protected patient data
  • FERPA-protected student information
  • Credit card numbers
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Other sensitive, restricted, or private information. 

To learn more about the kind of information you should always send securely via the UT Vault, visit our Information Security webpage on Confidential and/or Classified Information.

Send Large Files or a Large Number of Files

Use the UT Vault to send large files or a large number of files. Our UTHSC email system has a limit imposed on the size of any files you attach to email messages.  When the files you are attempting to send exceeds this attachment limit, you can use the UT Vault to overcome this limitation.

The UT Vault system allows users to send up to 30 files attached to a single message. The size of the attachments can be up to 15 gigabytes (GB) per file. However, a single message cannot exceed a total of 50 GB per email message.  The UT Vault service gives our UT users more flexibility and capacity to share large files securely.
