Serv-U FTP Server and Serv-U MFT Server both support file transfers using FTP and FTPS, allow for the exchange of multiple and large files, and the monitoring of FTP server logs to identify issues for troubleshooting and error-handling. However, many IT administrators switch from Serv-U FTP Server to Serv-U MFT Server as they scale their IT environment and their document sharing policies grow more complex. Further, dependent on their needs for data security and compliance, businesses will choose Serv-U MFT as it enable data transfers using SFTP and HTTP/S, and provides FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption.
In Serv-U MFT Server, SolarWinds also provides integration with existing Active Directory and LDAP servers, execution automated actions based on triggered events, or secure file sharing.
