Announcing the BrickFTP Sync Desktop App for Windows and macOS

Published on August 9, 2016

The BrickFTP team is proud to announce the new BrickFTP Sync desktop application for Windows and macOS!

This is an app that you and your users can install on your computers to sync your BrickFTP account to your desktop.

You can sync your entire folder tree, or select folders individually to sync. If you have multiple BrickFTP usernames (even if they are for entirely separate businesses), you can use multiple accounts at the same time in the application.

Any change made on BrickFTP will automatically propagate to the local folder(s), and any change made on the local folder(s) will automatically propagate to BrickFTP.

You can even right-click in Finder or Windows Explorer to instantly share a file or folder on BrickFTP.

BrickFTP Sync uses our proprietary network of global accelerated edge locations in California, Virginia, Germany, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, and Australia to give you and your users the fastest possible transfer times, regardless of location. Of course, if you have opted out of global acceleration (or are a HIPAA customer), we will automatically route your traffic only to your preferred jurisdiction. And the BrickFTP Sync app is designed to only use port 443 outbound so you should not require any additional firewall setup.

We are also offering our Enterprise customers the ability to fully whitelabel the BrickFTP Sync desktop app for an additional fee and include your own brand icons and graphics in the package.

We hope you enjoy this new feature of BrickFTP. If you have any questions or would like to share feedback, please get in touch.
