Aspera Drive Delivers Extreme File Sharing To The Desktop
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
2014 NAB SHOW, Booth SL8511-April 1, 2014-Aspera (News - Alert), Inc.�(http://www.asperasoft.com/),
an IBM (News - Alert) Company and creators of next-generation software technologies
that move the world's large data at maximum speed, today announced that
a new high-performance file sharing and synchronization solution, is now
available to all customers. The powerful and easy-to-use platform, built
on the unique Aspera FASP�(http://media.ne.cision.com/l/zziqmugn/asperasoft.com/technology/transport/fasp/)™
technology, combines high-speed secure transfer, remote browsing and
synchronization of any size data from the user's desktop to any content
location - on premise and throughout the cloud.
Organizations using today's file sharing services to improve data access
and document sharing face the inherent limitations and risks of these
services. File size limitations, slow performance over the wide area
network and concerns over content security have limited enterprise
adoption to simple collaboration scenarios.
Aspera Drive overcomes these limitations with a powerful and secure data
sharing and collaboration application and backend platform. Teams can
securely browse, sync, send and share files and directories of any size
directly from Windows Explorer and Mac Finder, with maximum speed at any
distance with full privacy and access control. Content is securely
transferred from its native location with transparent browse and sync
control in the desktop.
The FASP transfer platform, which powers the Drive file-sharing
ecosystem, eliminates the trade-off decisions across access, security,
infrastructure and cost. Customers have the flexibility to deploy
in-house on dedicated infrastructure, in the cloud with virtual servers
and storage, or using hybrid infrastructure combining on premise and
cloud. These options allow organiations to take full advantage of
storage and bandwidth at any location, retaining full control over
security and service levels, while enjoying the fastest possible access
and transfer times.
"Aspera Drive brings the power of Aspera FASP directly to the desktop of
users across the enterprise," said Michelle Munson, Aspera co-founder
and CEO. "The elegant end-user experience preserves all of the speed,
security and reliability of Aspera technology and provides it to any
individual in the extended organization."
