Secure. Versatile. Reliable.

Here's how Cerberus FTP Server delivers secure data transfer.

Powerful SFTP Server Icon

Powerful SFTP Server

  • SFTP – The SSH2 File Transfer Protocol, also known as SFTP. SFTP is a network protocol that provides secure and reliable file access, file transfer, and file management functionality. You can also allow clients to use public key authentication for SFTP connections.
  • SCP – The Secure Copy Protocol is a very simple file transfer protocol that supports basic file uploads and downloads. It’s used by some legacy devices to enable simple, secure file transfer.
  • FTPS and FTP – There are generally two modes of secure FTP available, FTP with explicit SSL/TLS encryption (FTPES) and implicit SSL/TLS (FTPS). Cerberus FTP Server supports both secure modes, as well as plain FTP. We also support MODE Z for compression, extensions for IPv6, as well as international support extensions to allow FTP in any language
  • HTTP/S web client – The HTTP/S web client capability allows any user with access to a common web browser to easily connect to the server to perform file operations (uploading, downloading, deleting, renaming, creating directories, and zipping and unzipping files and directories) using a desktop or mobile web browser.
  • Event Notification and Automated Processing, Auditing and Reporting, Ad Hoc File Transfers, and File Retention Policies.
  • Synchronization manager to replicate all users and settings from a master server to any number of backup or clustered servers
