Introducing InfiniShare - File Sharing with Non-users

Latest Features

Yesterday, September 15, 2016 we held a webinar to introduce our new file sharing feature called InfiniShare. This will allow users to create download links to some of their files -- links that can then be shared with third parties that will not require login accounts in order to download the files.

File sharing has become popular in recent years due to services such as Dropbox, Box and Citrix ShareFile, among others. While these "file sharing services" do not offer FTP, FTPS and SFTP as options to move files between users as FTP Today does, that doesn't mean that we don't appreciate some of the capabilities of their software. One such feature is the ability of a user to create public links to certain files so they can be shared with other parties without requiring a login. With FTP Today, you now have this capability!

We call it InfiniShare because this effectively means that you can have unlimited guest download access to certain files or folders. Security controls do exist, however, so that these InfiniShare Links can not be used if they fall into the wrong hands.

InfiniShare was deployed Monday, September 19, 2016 on the following subscription plans:

  • Secure Office
  • Private Business
  • Compliant Enterprise
  • Premium Enterprise-XL
  • Dedicated Server

Customers on other plans should contact FTP Today to discuss upgrading to a current plan.
