About the Web Client
Available in Cerberus FTP Server Enterprise edition, the HTTP/S web client capability allows any user with access to a common web browser to easily connect to the server to perform file operations (uploading, downloading, deleting, renaming, creating directories, and zipping and unzipping files and directories) using a desktop or mobile web browser.
You can also grant users the ability to generate a public link to any file, and email that link to someone from directly within the web client.
Administrators can also configure the server to allow or require users to authenticate using two factor authentication when connecting using the web client. We currently support HOTP-compliant one-time password applications, as well as direct integration with DUO Security. More can be found here: Setting up two-factor authentication.
Other options include reCAPTCHA and automatic IP blocking to help protect against brute force attacks.
Runs on any modern mobile device and allows users to upload, download, and share files just as easily as on a desktop browser.
