With the release of Commander One, our two-pane file manager for OS X, we have realized that some of our users run Apple devices on the client side and Windows on the server side. In order to help those particular users we have tested some SFTP servers for Windows to verify they work well with our software.

Syncplify.me Server!

Among the various options available on the market, Syncplify.me Server! stands out both in terms of security and ease of use. You can literally set up a very secure, PCI and HIPAA compliant, SFTP server in 5 minutes, with automatic configurations for the most common use-case scenarios such as maximum security, legacy client support, or highly optimized backup target. And the more advanced users will enjoy its support for Active Directory, scripting, event-handling, and above all its automatic self-protecting and self-healing capabilities.

Enjoy the power and flexibility of Syncplify.me Server! coupled with Commander One, and deploy your own robust and reliable turn-key secure file transfer system.

Eltima Software team is glad to announce the start of our brand new project – Swordbox – the most convenient way to keep all your passwords safe, accessible, and organized. The only thing required is a Dropbox account.

tumblr_inline_nyfmwpBEz41sit1v2_540

You will get access to all your passwords from any computer or mobile device at any time. Any change you make on one device is immediately available on your other devices. All information is kept safe and you are the only one who knows the master key.

You can be sure that all your passwords are as safe as can be because:

  • database is carefully encrypted
  • only you know master key
  • we can’t access your passwords
  • two-step verification is performed
  • database locks based on user inactivity
  • authorization takes place at Dropbox secure server

If for some reason you do not want to use Dropbox, we are working on other services support, like Google Drive or Eltima’s own sync service. You can also suggest a service you prefer to use.

Swordbox will be available for Windows, Android, Mac, and iOS.

Visit Eltima’s official website for more information.

Stay tuned,
your Peter Wood.

Commander One 1.1 is fully compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan

OS X 10.11 El Capitan is here at last!

Apart from UI and usability improvements the major update of the release is related to security system, we will discuss it below.

To enhance OS X security and reliability Apple introduces new safety system officially called System Integrity Protection (SIP), it is also known as “Rootless” feature.

The system accomplishes two tasks:

  • restricts root access
  • protects system integrity on the disk and memory

Thus your system’s update to El Captain will disable applications that inject code into OS X processes. This will also affect file managers that are not fully compatible with the new system. Such apps change the processes by adding features whilst they are running. OS X 10.11 El Capitan however does not allow making such changes.

New security system protects system files. The latter can be modified only by Apple installers, and also via Software update. Apple decided that certain actions cannot be performed by third party software. This means that the app that “inject” themselves into system processes will not work anymore.

I am happy to announce that updating your system to OS X 10.11 El Capitan will have no impact on Commander One 1.1. It is absolutely independent program that does not conflict with the new Apple security system, and you can keep utilizing benefits offered by the app.

Download Commander One 1.1

P.S.//If after upgrading to OS X 10.11 El Capitan your file manager does not function anymore, we will give you 50% discount on Commander One PRO Pack – provided you have a proof that you have purchased other file manager before.

Discount is available here

Stay tuned,
Yours Peter Wood
