Webfiles will be phased out beginning Spring 2020

The software product at the heart of OIT’s Webfiles file sharing service, Xythos, will no longer be supported or maintained by the vendor as of December 2019. Without vendor support for bug fixes and security patches, the service presents an increasing cybersecurity risk. As a result, in the coming months, OIT will begin to phase out the Webfiles service.

All current Webfiles users are encouraged to migrate to another file-sharing solution. OIT will be ready to work with you in Q1 2020.  We will set a date to sunset the service only after a significant number of current users have migrated. Once a sunset date is determined, OIT will make an announcement 90 days in advance to provide any remaining users an opportunity to migrate to another solution before Webfiles is turned off.
