Think of a digital storage vault like a traditional safe deposit box, but one that you can access from mobile and online banking anytime, anywhere! A digital storage vault is a dedicated virtual vault with cloud-based storage and encryption for storing your most important documents. 

Virtual StrongBox uses a private cloud and Total Information Privacy and Protection infrastructure to store your documents. Your documents are individually encrypted and stored in data centers that are SSAE 18 certified and include 24-hour monitoring to assure safety and continuous backup in case of power outages or physical disasters.

Virtual StrongBox protects your files with AES 256-bit encryption - the same level of encryption trusted by the U.S. Government and Military. Files you choose to upload, send or share are encrypted while in transit and while at rest.

Your documents are also protected behind First Bank and Trust Company’s secure digital banking platform which requires multi-factor authentication.

Only you, the user, has access to the documents you upload within First Bank and Trust Company’s digital banking platform. The Bank cannot see any documents you place in your digital storage vault.

If you choose to share one or more documents with a trusted individual, you will be presented with the option to password protect your documents, and you will also have the option to set an expiration date for discontinuing access to shared documents.

  • Navigate to the upload destination - the root folder (the initial page after clicking on Files) or a folder/sub-folder in your Files directory
  • Click on the Upload action icon
