Before FileCatalyst, our file transfers used to take 1–2 days. Now they are done in hours. No other products we tested came close.

At a Glance
FileCatalyst Direct is our point-to-point file transfer solution. In a nutshell, this means that features are available by installing the FileCatalyst Server and one of our client-side options. Because FileCatalyst is at both endpoints, we can provide a superior file transfer experience. As well as being a standalone product, FileCatalyst Direct can be seamlessly integrated within an existing FileCatalyst Webmail or FileCatalyst Workflow solution.
The centerpiece of FileCatalyst Direct, the server enables acceleration and acts as the point of management for users and their files. Here's some of what it provides:
- UDP-based acceleration—transfer up to thousands of times faster than FTP!
- Encrypted with industry-standards: SSL for control channel and AES for data
- Auto-provisioning via OpenLDAP/ActiveDirectory
- “Guaranteed Delivery” options to prioritize sessions and transfers on the fly
- Remote administration via desktop or web-based tools
- Optional Monitoring Console sends alerts via SNMP or email, or displays them in a web-accessible dashboard.
The client options allow your organization to provide almost any sort of file transfer experience to your end-users:
- HotFolder automates transfers and schedules bandwidth usage. HotFolder also exposes every available advanced function.
- Java Applets enable accelerated transfer within a web browser, meaning zero installation for end users.
- Command-Line Interface provides a way to create or replace transfer scripts while enabling FileCatalyst acceleration.
- Development Kit (SDK) allows you to build a custom solution, or integrate FileCatalyst within an existing application.
- Express Client is a simple two-pane transfer tool for people familiar with FTP clients.
- FileCatalyst Upload is a mobile app for iOS and Android devices allowing fast and easy uploads to a FileCatalyst Server. Mobile APIs are also available for both platforms.
Tunneling Servlet acts as a proxy between the FileCatalyst Server and clients, enabling HTTP failover for situations in which other protocols are blocked.
