Product OverviewSee What's New
|Quick installation and administration||Most installations of FileMaker Server take less than 20 minutes so it’s easy to instantly start managing your custom apps remotely and automating administrative tasks.|
|24/7 reliability and availability||Get anytime access to your data with 24/7 availability. Protect your data with scheduled live back-ups, which run even while your apps are in use.|
|Robust scalability||Manage groups of FileMaker users with reliable security and network performance. FileMaker Server does not restrict the number of networked FileMaker Pro clients. Limits are imposed by your hardware, app design, operating system, or licensing program.|
|Industry-standard security||Manage user access through external authentication via Active Directory/Open Directory. Use SSL encryption for secure data transfer. And secure your data when hosted on FileMaker Server using powerful AES 256-bit encryption — requires FileMaker Pro Advanced to enable encryption on each app.|
|Web technology||Use FileMaker WebDirect to run interactive solutions in a web browser — no web programming skills needed. Or use Custom Web Publishing to create custom, data-driven websites using PHP or XML.|
|ODBC/JDBC support||Use ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) and JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) to read from and write to FileMaker apps hosted by FileMaker Server in conjunction with external programs and development tools. Support up to 50 simultaneous ODBC/JDBC remote connections.|

|Proactive security warnings||Administrators can prevent FileMaker Server from hosting apps that aren’t password protected with a simple checkbox, enabled by default. Plus, the Admin Console Log Viewer also includes more security-related messages that can be filtered for quick and easy identification.|
|More SSL certificate types supported||FileMaker Server now supports intermediate, Subject Alternative Name (SAN), and wildcard certificates. Wildcard certificates allow administrators to secure a website URL and multiple subdomains with one SSL certificate.|
|SSL certificate enhancements||It’s even easier to protect your FileMaker data. FileMaker Server now supports SSL certificates from more popular vendors. Easily request and install 3rd-party intermediate certificates with the new built-in certificate signing request form in the Admin Console.|
|Top call statistics logging||Quickly diagnose any slowdowns within the FileMaker Platform. FileMaker Server shows the top 25 calls from connected clients that are taking the longest time to process.|
