Enables high-speed browser-based file transfers to and from Aspera servers
IBM® Aspera® Connect Browser Plug-In is a lightweight, highly compatible browser plug-in that automatically initiates Fast, Adaptive, Secure Protocol (FASP®) uploads and downloads from the IBM Aspera Connect Server and applications such as IBM Aspera faspex™, IBM Aspera Drive and IBM Aspera Shares. This simple plug-in runs independent of the browser to provide precise visual transfer rate monitoring and control.
- Versatile, easy-to-use web browser plug-in for initiating high-speed transfers at rates up to hundreds of times faster than traditional transfer protocols such as FTP and HTTP.
- Precise bandwidth control that enables full use of available bandwidth, while remaining fair to other network traffic.
- Built-in security that helps organizations secure business-critical digital assets.
- Unrivaled Aspera performance when paired with IBM Aspera transfer servers that include patented FASP transport technology.
Versatile, easy-to-use web browser plug-in
- Installs and starts quickly and automatically to initiate high-speed uploads and downloads when using Aspera Connect Server and web applications.
- Provides automatic language selection based on the operating system language setting.
Precise bandwidth control
- Permits high-speed transfers to run independent of the browser so users can continue their work uninterrupted.
- Continually adjusts bandwidth utilization with its adaptive rate control to prioritize transfers while reserving bandwidth for other business-critical network traffic such as video conferencing.
- Allows users to switch to slower HTTP-based transfers for highly restrictive network environments.
- Provides a reliable and predictable experience with automatic retry and resume for interrupted transfers.
- Uses SSH authentication to establish secure connections between the plug-in and the transfer server.
- Provides in-transit and at-rest encryption of files and folders based on Advanced Encryption Standard 128.
Unrivaled Aspera performance
- Delivers large files and whole directories quickly, regardless of file size, transfer distance or network conditions using the patented FASP technology.
- Allows full use of allocated bandwidth to achieve maximum transfer speeds, while remaining fair to other business-critical network traffic.
- Offers automatic, fast and lossless inline compression to reduce data set transfer sizes and further boost Aspera industry-leading transfer performance.
