Sneak Peek: Secure File Sharing with Serv U MFT

  1. 1. 1 SolarWinds® Serv-U® ”Introduction to Secure File Sharing” with Serv-U MFT Server v15 © 2013 SOLARWINDS WORLDWIDE, LLC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
  2. 2. 2 What is “Ad Hoc” File Sharing? © 2013 SOLARWINDS WORLDWIDE, LLC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

  3. 3. 3 Why Do People Use File Sharing? » vs. Email: Solves Large Attachments Limits  Email servers can only handle files up to a certain size  Email can be insecure; even with SSL it bounces between multiple servers and may leave data in the clear » vs. FTP Servers: Avoids the Administrative Hassle  FTP servers require an admin to set up folder permissions and notifications – if the FTP server supports them  FTP servers require a bulky FTP client  FTP servers can leave old files on disk for years after they’re shared » It’s web-based - EVERYONE Can Use It  Witness proliferation of 3rd party websites  Most end users are non-technical, many use it for business purposes » BUT, sysadmins and security are concerned about loss of control! © 2013 SOLARWINDS WORLDWIDE, LLC.

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. 11
  12. 12. 12 When is Serv-U the Best File Sharing Solution? » You have a fixed budget  Serv-U MFT Server charges one flat fee  Most of our competitors charge by the user » Security, monitoring and control are critical  Serv-U is deployed in your own datacenter  Serv-U leverages existing infrastructure, procedure and staff » Your end users really just need to send and request files  Serv-U’s end user interface is simpler than competing solutions  Optional “Web Client” to also access folders from anywhere » Requesting files will be common  Inviting other people to share is easy in Serv-U  A “built-in” feature – not a “bolted on” afterthought © 2013 SOLARWINDS WORLDWIDE, LLC.
