Ottawa, ON – FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world-leading fast file transfer solution, has announced that to support working remotely, during this pandemic their free file sharing service, Files2U has increased the file sending limit to 40 files per user account (6GB total). Your files will also be maintained on the server for an extended time period of 72 hours before being automatically deleted. This will provide your recipients with more time to access the transferred files.

Files2U is a free web portal that allows the transferring of large files to anyone with an email address without the concern of email restrictions or slow FTP connections. Files2U is powered by FileCatalyst acceleration technology, which assures that your files arrive at the fastest speeds possible. Files2U also transfers your files securely from your browser using encryption. This keeps your data private, and allows only recipients that have the download link the ability to access your files.

Many companies may be overwhelmed with all or most of their employees working remotely. Our goal is to help where we can, we recognize that your transfer needs may not all be solved by this single service. That is why we are also offering $600 worth of credits for the next two months on a FileCatalyst per GB consumption license

We are proud that as a company, FileCatalyst has the opportunity to alleviate some of your stress during this pandemic.
