More than 1,700 organizations across the globe depend on Aspera’s core technology that enables high-speed fasp transportation, unprecedented control over bandwidth, with uncompromising reliability and complete security. 

Aspera's patented fasp transfer technology eliminates the shortcomings of conventional, TCP-based file transfer technologies such as FTP, HTTP and fasp transfer speeds and is hundreds of times faster than either FTP or HTTP.

Organizations effortlessly find, convert, track, organize and distribute digital media across the enterprise and globally with MediaBeacon's lightweight, highly personalizable and intuitive widget-based solutions. The widgeted interface brings desktop experience via the browser, allowing the creation of powerful DAM-centric websites that support specific workflows.

It is simple to use as it is a simple drag-and-drop interface.

The integration of technologies of Aspera and MediaBeacon has enabled a secure, reliable line speed digital asset transport platform. Aspera’s high-speed transport platform perfectly complements MediaBeacon’s solutions.

Jason Bright, founder and chief technical officer at MediaBeacon, said MediaBeacon’s widget-based system allows users to build a custom solution based on a wide set of simple components and adding Aspera into our solution was simple and straightforward, and it was the logical choice for extending our platform with high-speed transport.

Richard Heitmann, vice president of marketing for Aspera, said that by combining world-class digital asset management with Aspera's high-speed transfer, users would be treated to a rich, interactive experience, even if they’re located at remote sites.
