IT management software developer SolarWinds has added secure file-sharing capabilities to its managed file transfer solution, SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer (MFT) Server. SMBs can now facilitate secure exchange of information by hosting the file-sharing solution within their own data center or private cloud, protecting data alternatively stored in a third-party cloud application.
SolarWinds Serv-U MFT Server provides secure file transfer hosted on Windows and Linux machines. It enables users to support file uploads and downloads using FTP, FTPS, SFTP, HTTP, and HTTPS over IPv4 or IPv6 networks. Administrators can control access to files, monitor activity, automate notifications, and configure from any location through a secure Web management console.
File Sharing Capabilities
With SolarWinds Serv-U MFT Server’s secure file sharing capabilities, IT pros can safely send files to or request files from anyone through a Web interface client or any Web browser. Users can opt to set expiration dates or passwords and add messages to the recipient of their uploaded files. SolarWinds Serv-U MFT Server then sends a link to the file that recipients can access on secure Web pages. Users can also share the links via email, instant message, or social media.
While several popular third-party file sharing sites enable users to send and receive files easily, SolarWinds Serv-U MFT Server offers a secure file sharing system for SMBs by keeping shared data within the data center or private cloud. SolarWinds Serv-U MFT Server integrates with Active Directory, permitting authentication or provisioning of an entire company or of specific departments. Administrators can apply their own security policies, procedures, monitors, and controls to abide by company security standards.
