Excellent FTP/SFTP/HTTPS file transfer server software that is Enterprise ready.

Excellent Enterprise-Ready File Transfer Server software. If you keep up with the new releases; you should be able to minimize any major security threats.

Pros

We really like the multiprotocol support including SFTP w/ SSH Key and/or Password Authentication, FTP (if you're stuck in the past) and HTTP/HTTPS is good for those users that can't figure out how to run a File Transfer Client on their machine. We utilize the database backend functionality to store our user authentication so multiple servers can share it. I've used Serv-U for > 15 years. It's my favorite Solarwinds product purchase; though we bought it from RhinoSoft back in the day.

Cons

Long ago, they didn't have a good automated user creation system for the database backend. We brewed our own solution using some guidelines they mentioned. I haven't looked to see if that has improved over the last 12 years or so. I'd also like to see a tool that can find individual or groups of full session logs related to a search string (user, or filename/directory). I brewed my own version of that as well. Perhaps they have something. The Solarwinds support site/community is tough to navigate; so it's hard to know what accompanying tools are available.

We use this in our production and test environments. Fast and simple to use!

Pros

Ease of use, reliability are fantastic. So much simpler to use than windows FTP or some of the other competitors

Cons

Could be cheaper. But then again - good software costs. This is my go-to application for FTP.

FTP and SFTP and a great value

Considering it has never crashed and the management side is not crazy. Its a win for me and my company.

Pros

They say on prem is out. I think not. I have been running this software for about 10 years and it just works. Setup is pretty easy. I have only had to take it offline for updates. Never has crashed. 90 percent of the calls I get with users having issues it's on there end. Has a nice File Share feature you can setup.

Cons

The interface can be a little more updated but this is just appearance. Haven't found anything really wrong.

Great feature set for the price

We switch from WSFTP Server as we needed an option to run some more advanced batch files and notifications. This provided exactly what we wanted with a much lower price point than the others we looked at.

Pros

This software was very easy to install and start providing a great solution for basic managed file transfers.

Cons

This product can be difficult to configure if you are working with a highly available configuration and multiple hosts and the ports become confusing with the Gateways in the middle.

Serv-U is secure

Pros

It is a very secure file transfer program. We use this to exchange sensitive information to and from clients. Our users like it. It's possible to do AD integration so that's a huge plus for us since we don't have to set up everyone as a user.

Cons

I have no complaints with this software. It is secure and fits our needs.
