SolarWinds announced new secure file sharing capabilities to its managed file transfer solution, SolarWinds Serv-U Managed File Transfer (MFT) Server.
Serv-U MFT Server provides secure file transfer – and now file sharing – 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.
With Serv-U MFT Server’s new secure file sharing capabilities, IT pros can safely send files to or request files from anyone through an easy-to-use 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. It 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 allow users to send and receive files easily, Serv-U MFT Server offers a uniquely secure file sharing system for the enterprise by keeping shared data within the data center or private cloud. IT integrates with Active Directory, permitting authentication or provisioning of an entire company or of specific departments, and administrators can apply their own security policies, procedures, monitors, and controls to abide by company security standards.
