SolarWinds SCP Server Review

SolarWinds SCP Server Review

With an emphasis on security, SolarWinds SCP Server is trusted by brands like Cisco and Apple. The SolarWinds SCP Server comes fully featured and free of charge.

Known for their complete suite and server based tools, this tool is another SolarWinds product to add to your toolbox.

It allows you to securely push OS images and firmware and configuration updates, backup configuration files, and transfer files up to 4GB.

Unlike some of the other SCP Servers, it has the distinct advantage of being part of the overall SolarWinds suite, meaning a lot of built-in functionality and compatibility exists – but it also stands perfectly on its own as a fully function and completely free server for your needs!
