Public File Sharing
Upload, send and download large files - easily. Collaborate securely with external customers. All without needing an account.
Secure File Transfer Trusted by Thousands of Companies
Give your users a safe and secure way to share files
Public file sharing, also known as ad-hoc file transfer or person-to-person file transfer, allows your users to share any file or folder and through a unique, time-limited, public link.
The benefits of sending files via a public link as opposed to email include:
- Secure file transfer is built in - you have visibility and control over the data moving into and out of your business.
- Sending large files 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 that expire within specified timeframes (or stay permanently available).
Send a Public Upload Link
Easily send upload links to allow recipients to securely send your users files.
Choose password protection and access options for each link.
Advanced Sharing Options
Specialized options like isolated, hidden upload shares allow issuing share links that can be posted to collect submissions from many uploaders without anyone being able to see what others have uploaded.
Advanced notification options ensure the sharer can be notified whenever a file has been uploaded or downloaded.
Control Access Permissions
Let your users determine what kind of access they want to allow for their public share links.
Get Notified of Changes
Users can choose to be notified whenever new activity occurs on a public share link.
Email a link to a Public File
In addition to public file sharing, users can also email a link to a public share directly from within the Cerberus FTP Server web client. Users just need to click the "Email" button on a file to open a dialog for emailing the file.
Revoking Public File or Folder Access
Users and administrators can revoke access to open public links at anytime through the Cerberus FTP Server web client or administrative UI.
Easy Access for Recipients
When a user emails a public file link, 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 powered by Cerberus FTP Server where they can download the shared files. Cerberus will log all access through the file’s public link.
