Restricting a User's Protocol Privileges


Access to data transmission protocols can be specified for each user, allowing you to specify exactly which protocols a user is allowed to use to connect to Files.com. This allows you to control exactly which methods a user account can use to connect to your Files.com site which can assist you in meeting any security compliance regulations that apply to your business or industry.

Use the Protocol Access setting, within the user account's Privileges settings, to allow or disallow the selected user's access to FTP (including FTPS and FTPES), SFTP, WebDAV, Web Portal, Desktop app, and the Files.com API.

PROTOCOL SETTINGAPI ATTRIBUTEDESCRIPTION
FTPftp_permissionSpecifies whether the user account is allowed to connect using the FTP, FTPS or FTPES protocol.
SFTPsftp_permissionSpecifies whether the user account is allowed to connect using SFTP protocol.
WebDAVdav_permissionSpecifies whether the user account is allowed to connect using WebDAV or WebDAVS protocol.
Web, Desktop App, and APIrestapi_permissionSpecifies whether the user account is allowed to connect using the Files.com web portal, the Desktop App, or via the REST APIs using the HTTPS protocol.

User accounts with Administrator access privileges, cannot be denied access to the Web Portal, Desktop app, and the Files.com API but can be disallowed from having access to FTP (including FTPS and FTPES), SFTP, and WebDAV.

This setting works in conjunction with the user's IP Whitelist setting and the user's Access Control by Country setting.

Protocol access can also be managed using groups.
