Pros
Ease of use and full functionality is what I like a lot about this product. Phone support is great as well and reassured me that I won't be left stranded if I need help.
Client setup for most common secure transfer scenarios is straightforward and bullet proof. Documentation and support for more advanced scenarios is superb.
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.

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

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.

Working SFTP solution

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Navigation pretty straightforward, easy to implement, IP Manger is good option, integration with AD, stable.

Cons

It needs more support for MFA (right now only DUO) OKTA, RSA, Google, etc. Reporting on professional version is very basic. Price could be more friendly.

Vendor response

Secure FTP Server everyone can manage.

Reviewed 3 years 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

Great value and great support

Reviewed 7 years ago
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.

Vendor response

We're glad to hear Cerberus FTP Server is able to meet your unique ftp needs with LDAP authentication for accounts.We're always looking to improve our FTP Server, and when we do, push out updates as quickly yet safely as possible.
