Web Client Public File and Folder Sharing

Public file sharing, also known as ad-hoc file transfer or person-to-person file transfer, allows a user to take any file or folder and generate a unique, time-limited, public link to that item and share it with anyone.

Give your users a safe and secure way to share files

Cerberus Public Share Reporting

Public file sharing allows your users to create and send file and folder links to recipients for secure file access.

Benefits over email include:

  • You have visibility and control over the data moving into and out of your business.
  • Large attachments won’t burden email servers or exceed mailbox quotas.
  • Files are transferred with strong encryption and can be password protected.
  • No more wasted time figuring out how to send a file to someone.
  • Links can be set to automatically expire by the user or administrator

Create and Send Public Links

You have full control over public file sharing. Before a user can share a file or folder publicly, the administrator has to grant explicit sharing priviledges to that user’s virtual folder. Once granted permission, users can share files or entire folders.

Send a Public Upload Link

Easily send upload links to allow recipients to securely send your users files.

Get Notified of Changes

Users sending public shares can choose to be notified whenever new activity occurs on a file or folder.

Easy Access for Recipients

When a user emails a public file linke, the recipient will receive an email with your user’s message and a public, unique link to the file or folder.  Recipients will be directed to an intuitive web client where they can download the shared files.  Cerberus will log all access through the file’s public link.
