Pros
Client setup for most common secure transfer scenarios is straightforward and bullet proof. Documentation and support for more advanced scenarios is superb.
Easy Implementation, Great pricing, Packed with Features, excellent logging, FTPS/FTPES & SFTP on one server software.
My users love how easy it is to use. Management likes the cost of maintenance.
Cons
The only negative for me was I found it a little tricky to get the SSL cert installed. That may not be an issue for admins with more knowledge than me, it was just more difficult than IIS.
Lack of favicon customization. Every time I upgrade I have to do it manually.
Some of the new GUI menus are a little weird. I prefer the old GUI menus.

Cerberus is a good, secure solution at a good price

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

the software allows for the creation of upload/download templates caled groups that can be applied to new users to make new account creation uniform, security permission will be identical for all users in that group. the advanced server security settings allow for disabling/enabling TLS 1.1, 1.2; as well as FIPS 140-2 cipher suites with some ease in the GUI.

Cons

The software uses a Windows .dll version of log 4j that limits the ability to set log rotation - max is 14, 30 days would be better. the ability to set this in the GUI would be a welcome addition.

Vendor response

Hey Robert, thanks for your review of Cerberus FTP Server! We're pleased you find Cerberus secure and are enjoying the features like grouping that save you time.

GUI is fantastic - enables more team members to quickly create rules for incoming files!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Reduction in Lead time with new customers. Entry Level staff leverage this tool which was impossible on the legacy Linux ftp server application.

Pros

1. Authorization and Authentication for rules Users/Groups. 2. Event Manager -Ease of Use 3. Superb Service and quick deployment of patches when required.

Cons

Event Manager - All matching rules fire. Would be fantastic if rule precedence and/or Stop processing additional rules existed..

Secure FTP Server everyone can manage.

Reviewed a year ago

It has helped non-technical personnel use an SFTP server. It has increased our security posture. In several years of use we have never had an outage. Very sturdy software kit.

Pros

Ease of use. HTTPS access for untrained users. Ease of file sharing.

Cons

The user management applet is bit clunky and counter intuitive.

Vendor response

Hey Juan, thanks for your review! We're pleased to find that Cerberus FTP Server is easy for you and your users, as well as secure and reliable. We'd love to hear your ideas to improve user management in our feature request submissions link here: https://support.cerberusftp.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/200198295-Feature-Requests
