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.

Overall: 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.

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.

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.

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

Great feature set for the price

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.

Overall: 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: 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.
