MAINTENANCE: Secure File Transfer, 12/15, 6pm-9pm

Harvard University’s Secure File Transfer Service, powered by Accellion Kiteworks, will be upgraded on Tuesday, December 15 between 6:00 PM and 9:00 PM Eastern time.  

Impacts to users:

The Accellion Kiteworks service will be unavailable during the upgrade.

Why HUIT is upgrading at this time:

    • The vendor has released a new version of the software to address an issue that causes intermittent service outages.
    • HUIT has recently experienced a handful of related outages over the past few months, and wants to mitigate the risk of this happening again, especially over the holiday break.
