Aspera Introduces Aspera Drive and Faspex 4.0
- Users can browse their Projects and Shares, and transfer, send, or sync files and directories via Aspera Drive on the Desktop, faspex browser interface using the Aspera Connect browser plug-in, or from the mobile app - and recipients can immediately be notified of content availability via email.
- User management flexes across enterprise users and third parties with support for multiple directory services, federated authentication and single sign-on, and third-party invitations.
- Transfer policies such as bandwidth preferences, priorities, vlinks, and security settings can be configured by users, groups, and also by Project.
- The Aspera Node API has been extended to support Shares-based access control for browsing, transfer, and sync in addition to the existing API for faspex package sending, receiving and package info.
The Aspera Drive and faspex 4.0 experience extends to the iOS and Android mobile platforms with full compatibility with the faspex Mobile App for iOS and for Android, and a new Aspera Drive for Mobile app that allows the user to browse Projects and Shares, and upload and download from their device using fasp.
Aspera will be demonstrating a preview of Aspera Drive and faspex 4.0 at NAB in the Aspera booth SL9716, and expects to make available a beta in Summer 2013.
