Serv-U File Server 15.4 Release Notes
Release date: May 17, 2023
These release notes were last updated on June 28, 2023
Here's what's new in Serv-U File Server 15.4.
Multifactor authentication can be used to provide an additional layer of security. When multifactor authentication is set up, users are prompted to enter a six-digit code sent by a third-party multifactor authentication app, in addition to their user name and password. Serv-U supports a variety of multifactor authentication apps.
Multifactor authentication is disabled by default. Serv-U administrators can choose to enable it (users can enter a code but are not required to) or enforce it (users must enter a code to log in). Multifactor authentication can be configured at the global, domain, group, or user level.
Support for Secure LDAP in a Linux installation
When Serv-U is installed on a Linux server, secure LDAP (LDAPS) is now supported. LDAPS uses TLS (Transport Layer Security) to encrypt and authenticate the data exchanged between Serv-U and the LDAP server. All interactions are performed through a secure channel, which prevents unauthorized parties from intercepting or modifying the data.
In the new web client, you can move files and folders by dragging and dropping them.
SHA2 ciphers are supported.
Serv-U 15.4 includes security improvements.
