Pros: The ease of setup, maintain and administration. The user interface is also easy to use so I don't need to train my users on how it works. They figure it self.

Cons: Well, not really sure. So far all seems nice. There are free tools on the market, so perhaps you can drop the price a little. But still not too bad value for money

Overall: Well our users have access to their own online storage being internal to our organization,

Using it for our PROD FTP Service, with two Cerberus FTP allow us to failover with HA.

Pros: We have had some unique ftp needs (relating to LDAP authentication for accounts) and cerberus has been able to met them all. They support has been great, and they publish updates frequently.

Cons: It's expensive, but it is still a good value, as I could not find any better option that cost less. The support is well worth it to. I would highly recommend keeping an active subscription. But that's pretty standard for enterprise software.

Works incredibly well

Pros: Briefly, the sFTP function works well and easy to setup with very good documentation manual, and importantly the logging activities which are stored and segregated in daily log file which is very useful for troubleshooting with counterpart whenever there is reported issue and the log file will clearly show the login, receiving, removing and sending events.

Overall the interface is very user-friendly and that translates well into ease of use and maintains. Lastly but not the least is the pricing in comparison to other ftp server vendor in terms of functionalities namely control.

Cons: No option to create SSH key pair files for customer, and thus I have to use ftp voyager to generate these files.

Overall: The software works well and don't encounter any issues so far.

So far so good, no complaint.

Pros: The pricing, easy of understanding the pricing structures and what each different tier provides. Performance is on par with products we have tested previously, the pricing of Cerberus made an easy decision for choosing the product.

Cons: the management once installed is a little tricky and takes a little time to get used to, however, once familiar, it's straight forward to use.

Overall: SFTP as stated. As we are slowly migrated from traditional FTP to SFTP

Pros: Ease of use and management. Very easy to manage. My users love how easy it is to use. Management likes the cost of maintenance.

Cons: It would be nice to have a User guide, It would be nice to be able to lookup users by group. It needs more search capabilities.

Overall: Secure FTP service.

Needed to find a high feature SFTP Server application that ran within a Windows environment.

Pros: The auto blacklist feature in conjunction with the number of failed logins is a great benefit, no need to continue to verify SFTP system is save. Another benefit for the company I work for is the support for local users and LDAP users simultaneously. No need to choose between the type of users within this system. The support for multi-tier authentication is also a huge benefit, password as well as pub key, or using the password or pub key allows employees to test as our client while I client stays secure using their private key. Applying updates is very simple and very quick, have performed such updates during business hours and downtime was a matter of 2 minutes.

Cons: When users are created, a folder corresponding to the user is not automatically created so only permissions need to be assigned for the user.

THey are a great company to work with.

Pros: We absolutely LOVE the webclient, it's so much easier to take care of our less experienced users now. Our FTP support went down for about 70% already and those advanced functions like sharing and account request save incredible much time and money as well!

Cons: It's yet a bit tricky to customize the frontend, especially when there are updates. We're definitely looking forward to version 9, which has hopefully better (and persistant) customization features.

Overall: Way more functions.
Way less work.
Way happier workmates!

Cerberus FTP is very ease to use and configure for its value.

Cons: This product does not have any thick client which can installed on windows client or mobile devices to access the files from the share.

Overall: We have enrolled many departments to upload their data to center place where the auditors can view from the single location.

Pros: I have used several FTP servers but the best solution, for my needs, is Cerberus by far.
I use Cerberus for only 30 users and with low traffic. I never used the server for a big number of user and high demand, so I can not comments about that profile. But I can say that for my goals is perfect and with fair price.

Cons: I have nothing to complain about.
The only thing never tested was support, but it is because never needed.

Overall: Stable, easy to use, fair price and several prices/configurations for different needs.
Secure. Easy to by over the WEB.

Pros: My clients love the easy to use web client, rather than using an FTP client. I like how easy it was to set up on a server hosted in Microsoft Azure. It was the perfect solution for us.

Cons: It's a bit pricey. Other than that, I have to type a minimum of 100 characters here just to tell you that I don't find a lot of faults with Cerberus FTP.

Overall: Sharing large files with customers and team members.
