FileCatalyst Announces Partnership with Dropbox

FileCatalyst, the Emmy award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world-leading fast file transfer solution, has announced that it has partnered with Dropbox to bring UDP accelerated file transfer capabilities to and from Dropbox.

The newly launched FileCatalyst Direct v3.8, has the added capability to connect Dropbox as an External File System in the FileCatalyst Direct server. This will allow users to transfer their files at accelerated rates, through the power of UDP. Through this FileCatalyst integration with Dropbox, users gain access to the entire FileCatalyst application suite, which offers automation, customizable/brandable web portals, ad-hoc transfers, and centralized monitoring and administration, all at accelerated speeds.

“We are excited to be partnering with Dropbox to provide customers with the ability to accelerate file transfers from Dropbox.” said Chris Bailey, CEO and co-founder at FileCatalyst, “As of FileCatalyst Direct v3.8, organisations can combine the file sharing and collaboration capabilities of Dropbox with file transfer speed, monitoring, administration, and reporting capabilities of FileCatalyst.”

“At Dropbox, we pride ourselves on being a place where you can bring all of your tools, content, and teams together,” said Andy Wilson, Media Principal at Dropbox. “We’re thrilled to partner with FileCatalyst to help our joint customers, who rely on UDP for their post-production workflows, deliver high-quality content right from within Dropbox.”
