We print about 180 Newspapers for Customers in more than one State. The Dedicated FTP server is running Serv-U, currently with one domain and 212 users. This is primarily used for our customers to send in their PDF files for us to use in printing their newspapers. We also use it to disseminate useful information and "tips and tricks" using a virtual path that all customers can access.

Our IT has implemented SolarWinds Serv-U for both internal use as well as use by departments outside of IT. Internally it's used when working with other vendors to provide a more secure way to transfer large files, while other departments are using it to transfer files too large to email.

Serv-U is being used across many departments within the organization. Both internal employee and our customers are leveraging the FTP solution. This product replaced another FTP server which failed and required constant attention from IT staff. This solution allows remote administration from within the network while staying in security compliance.

Serv-U allows us to have our users, both inside and outside the organization, access business critical files. This could not be done by email based on size limits, that Serv-U meets the business need.
