FTP software is not the most glamorous category, yet CyberDuck manages to make file transfer appealing. With an attractive interface and support for cloud storage, it’s head and shoulders above its competitors.
CyberDuck is available for both the Window sand Mac platforms, and it offers a number of features above its peers. It’s an FTP and SFTP app, but it also supports WebDAV, thereby providing easy access to web-based disks. It also connects to Amazon S3 for really affordable storage in the cloud, as well as Rackspace Cloud, Oracle Cloud Storage and Google Cloud Storage.
Other benefits include:
- Fast, simple integration with a content delivery network (CDN) such as Akamai, making your website more robust and improving uptime.
- Access to Amazon S3 storage as though it were an external hard drive.
- Fast access to web URLs for files you’re browsing.
- Support for Growl.
- Support for SSH, plus two factor authentication with Google.
CyberDuck also integrates seamlessly with other providers using two APIs: Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift.
Overall, if you’re looking for an easy-to-use FTP client with powerful features, Cyberduck is a good choice. With built-in support for Google Drive and Amazon S3, and being a client that lets you manage file permissions, reveal hidden files, and place speed limits, Cyberduck ticks all the boxes.
